Maybelline has been in hyper active mode for quite a some time now. A new product is launched even before we can get our hands on the previous launch. Not that we are complaining! I picked up their Maybelline Lip Gradation, a much awaited launch, in shade Pink 2 recently. Let’s start the review.
Price: INR 500 for 1.2 gm
Product Description (As per website):

Maybelline Lip Gradation Pink 2 comes in a beautiful dark pink twist up pen packaging, secured with a black cap and a smudger on the other end. The color Pink 2 is a beautiful pink color, leaning towards Fuchsia. The lipstick is super pigmented and easily covers all the pigmentation in a single swipe. The texture is super creamy, which glides on smoothly without any tugging on the lips. This is amazing for a matte lip color. It does not dry the lips at all, and feels super light weight on the lips. Loveeee it!
The only thing I did not like is the smudger. I don’t like the look it gives to the lips, it makes them look messy. But it is great to be used as your regular matte lipstick.The lipstick stays decently for about 4 hours, and even fades away without looking messy.
All in all, I am loving this formula as well as this pretty color. PInk 2 will be suitable for a wide range of skin tones in my opinion. It is a must try matte formula in my opinion.
Flawed or Fab???
Will I repurchase and recommend Maybelline Lip Gradation to others???
Definitely yes, both the formula and color range is good. I may pick up one in another shade though, since I don’t tend to finish up my makeup.
