Hey all lovely people!!! Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink Review is my first post here and I am excited to be a part of this amazing place. Hope you all like my attempt.

However, love at first sight rarely lasts forever. Or does it?? Read on further to know that am I still crazy for this one or is it just another pink lipstick for me. 😉

My experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Make Me Pink
Okies, now the fun part. I loved the color insanely when I swatched at the counter. However, the moment I applied Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink on my lips, the entire excitement went down the drain. The lipstick goes off quite sheer in the first go. So, on my slightly pigmented lips, it did not show up as its true color. Eventually, I had to work around it to make it look fab. A dab of concealer on the lips and a pink lip liner did the trick. Finally, I was able to get the desired color on the lips. The color is a muted but still a vibrant pink. You can rock Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink with a full-on smokey eye or just an eyeliner. Thats the versatility of this color. However, this color washes me out if I get a tan. So, my dusky beauties will definitely have to layer it up with a gloss to be able to wear this. So, its off limits for me when I am more brown. 😉
The pigmentation is average. You definitely have to apply Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink twice or more to get the complete color. The texture of the lipstick is very, very creamy and hydrating. The color goes on smoothly and can be layered up without looking messy. The best part is even though its creamy, it does not have the shine. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink has a matte finish with a slight sheen to the lips. Looks so dreamy. 🙂 The lipstick stays for good 4-5 hours and leaves behind an even stain. It does not bleed at all. However, it transfers easily. The lipstick comes in a standard bullet packaging with a dark pink/magenta colored cap. The lipsticks in this range are packaged in colored caps depending on their broad categories, viz. browns, pinks, reds, etc. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink closes with a click, so it is sturdy enough to travel with.
I am still fond of this lipstick. However, this is not my first choice as it requires me to do a bit of hard work. I wear Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink only when I have more time on my hands. It would have remained my first love, but for my pigmented lips. 🙁
In a nutshell, Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Make Me Pink is a pretty cool-toned pink. If you are fond of such colors, go grab it now. The lipstick is very affordable and is a complete treat for your lips. If you are dusky or have pigmented lips, you may have to work around it a bit. But, its totally worth it.
