Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Liner in Hollywood Red: Review & Swatches

Hello Ladies,

So one of the most common phase that I have heard people saying is ” What’s in the name? “…for me..well everything 😛 . A name is the first identity that you associate with someone or something. Case in point…this lip liner from Maybelline that I am going to review today. When you read Hollywood red don’t you instantly imagine that amazingly rich shade of red usually worn by Marilyn Monroe? Unfortunately the shade of this lip liner has nothing to do with red… instead it is a very pretty berry shade.

Price: Rs 250 for 5 gms.

The packaging is nothing fancy. It just comes with a transparent cap and the outer shade of the pencil is same as that of the shade of the lip liner. As I have already mentioned, Hollywood red is a beautiful berry shade.The shade is matte and has no shimmer.

This is my second lip liner from this range and the reason that I love invest in these are that they are really pigmented. The texture is really creamy and smooth so you don’t have to struggle to apply it. The staying power is decent that is around 3-4 hours. 

Overall I think it is a decent lip liner. It does what it supposed to do that is prevent my pretty lipsticks from bleeding and  making my lips look more defined.  The fact that this lip liners are so pigmented means that you can easily just wear them under a transparent lip gloss and it will work just like any other lip color.
The only dissapointment I had was that I was expecting something red but the shade so pretty that I can overlook this minor flaw.
