Here I am with another review on a lipstick I’m currently obsessed with, Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color Windsor Rose.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 250 for 4 gm
I always go for lipsticks having shade names like rose, rosy and pinks because they suit me well. So obviously I bought this shade ‘Windsor Rose’ because of ‘Rose’! This shade is beautiful. It’s not too dark. This is a shade which everyone should own.
I dislike the packaging. It is not attractive at all. The case has a boring brownish color. I hate to carry it around in my bag! Anyway! At least the shade is nice. The case is sturdy though and its cap shuts tightly.
The lipstick is a beautiful pink color It looks quite dark in the tube but upon application you get a lovely creamy pink color This shade can be carried off easily as it is not too dark. If you prefer darker shades you can swipe it 3-4 times to get a darker look. The finish is creamy matte and doesn’t bleed. I think this particular shade will suit fair to wheatish skin tones best. It has no shimmers. It also claims to have SPF 15 which is a plus point.
This lipstick glides on very easily. One swipe easily covers up pigmentation. I always use a lip liner along with this lipstick. This is a very moisturizing lipstick and I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm underneath. This lipstick has no fragrance at all (You can only notice a faint smell if you keep it very close to your nose!).
The staying power of this lipstick really surprised me. It stays put on my lips for around 5-6 hours which is great considering the price. In spite of having meals in between it didn’t budge. Only the moisture goes away but the color remains intact. After sometime (around 4 hours) lips tend to feel dry. One bad thing is that the color is highly transferable.
In conclusion, this is a perfect shade for office goers. Great for a natural and day wear look.
