Maybelline The Jewels ColorSensational Lipstick in shade Red Garnet: Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hi girls,

So you know how the saying goes that jewellery is a girl’s biggest weakness…well i guess Maybelline agrees with the saying at that’s why they came up with this amazing range of Jewel lipsticks. I swatched all the 6 shades but absolutely fell in love with one shade in particular and that is Red Garnet

Price: Rs. 350

The lipstick comes in a decent packaging. The top cover of the lipstick has a prism effect. The slant of the lipstick bullet is a little too steep that the usual Maybelline lipsticks which makes application a little tricky.

Again the name has nothing to do with the shade…seriously cosmetic brands need to get a color blindness test done.The shade is a bold and dark plum color and no where near to red :p .But the shade itself is really pretty and glamorous and it instantly brightens your face. 

R-L: 1 Swipe, 2 swipes

One thing that I love about the lipstick is how pigmented it is. one swipe is more than enough to give you an opaque layer of lip color.  The texture of the lipstick is really smooth and the lipstick itself is quite moisturizing. The smooth texture prevents it from settling in fine lines. The only problem is that due to this texture the lipstick tends to bleed a little.
Staying power of the lip color is around 4.5-5 hours including meals after which the color as such tends to tone down but it leaves behind a deep pink stain which stays till removed with a makeup remover
I absolutely love this shade and have worn it on a lot of occasions during the winters. It is a shade that flatters almost every Indian skin tone. But in case you are into dark lipsticks then I guess you should skip looking at this range.
Have you tried any lipstick from this range?
