Hope you all are doing well and are happy and healthy.
Maybelline Color Sensational Range of lipsticks is not new in the market. They are one of their wonderful discoveries. The range has 33 sensational captivating shades from nudes to bright pinks and plums to sensational reds, My Mahogany being the most famous nude shades from this range. Now days I am going through bright lipsticks phase, so, picked up a red shade called 'Fatal Red'.
The company describes that one would love these lipsticks because of its crispier color, rich pigmentation and moisturizing properties due to Honey Nectar.
Well, nothing exaggerated by the company. It has everything that it claims i.e. amazing color pay-off and moisturizing that you don’t want to apply a gloss on top of it.
Fatal Red is a just a true red, neither blue based nor warmer blue, just a beautiful RED that it is FATAL. This will suit a variety of skin tones, both warmer and cooler tones and a range of skin colors, from very pale and fair to darker. On very pale and fair, the shade may look a little bit darker, but on medium & darker skins this would look awesome. In the entire range, this shade is the most eye catching and vibrant shade.
Its pigmentation and color pay-off is to die for, just a couple of swipes and voila! You are good to go! I also like how shiny they are and how nicely it brighten up the otherwise simple look.
Staying power is also decent. It lasted for more than 4 hours on me, after which it started losing its shine and looked more as a stain than a lipstick, which is not a problem for me. I just applied a little bit of lip balm on the stain and it was as good as freshly applied lipstick, of course with little less intensity of color.
Price: INR 290/-. For the quality of product, this is nothing.
Packaging wise also it’s decent, but, it is prone to getting finger prints which might be an issue with some. It comes in a red translucent plastic case and a steel tube inside. For the price and quality of product, packaging is the least bothering criteria for me.
Overall, its a lovely red color with a pretty shine which would look good on warmer as well as cooler toned beauties and fairer and darker beauties. I am fully satisfied with this shade.
Here are the pictures of the lipstick and how it looks on me:
