Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick – Review and Swatches

Hello Pretty Girls,

It’s been QUITE LONG since I have posted a blog as I wasn’t keeping well and it took longer than usual to get over the viral infection but I am recovering now and so back to what I like doing and missed hell lot all this while.
I have clicked all the pics related to this post during my “not-so-well” days of the year, so excuse me if these don’t look that great, but I hope you’ll like the blog and pics equally.

I recently came across these range of liquid lipsticks from Maybelline called as – ‘Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick’. These lipsticks are priced at quite reasonable price @ INR 349/- for 7 ml of product.

I have picked up two shades from this range – “Easy Berry” and “Sensationally Me” – These are the names of shades πŸ˜›

Talking about the lipstick quality, it’s matte in finish and quite pigmented. Since these are liquid lipsticks I expected them not to bleed and stay for good amount of time, however these lipsticks do bleed and transfers if you touch your lips even after couple of minutes, the lipstick is dried. Staying power is manageable but they can’t survive meals.

Let’s have a look at the swatches of two shades I picked up –
1. Easy Berry – This is a pretty barbie pink color. This is quite girly to wear and instantly brightens up your face. It’ll suit medium to fair skin toned girls. It’s lovely – would recommend!

undefined

2. Sensationally Me – This is dark brick red/brown color shade with nude undertone. I won’t call it nude or red/brown of shade, it essentially a mix of all three. It’s a perfect shade to be worn to office !

undefinedundefined

Verdict – For this price, a brand like Maybelline is definitely worth trying. The quality is not as great as other matte liquid lipsticks from Maybelline but it can be your budget friendly daily use lipstick. I liked the easy berry shade more out of the two I used as it gives a glow to my face even when I am not at best of my health πŸ™‚

You can buy the shades from these URLs (NYKAA online)

Sensationally Me

That’s it about this particular review. Please tell me how do you feel about these lipsticks if you tried any.
Also, please don’t forget to follow my blog if you haven’t already. You can follow me on Instagram if you want to, I usually post images related to my blogs there first πŸ™‚

8 Makeup Products every girl must have

Hey Beautiful,

Many of you must be aware of the products that I am gonna discuss about in this particular post but I would still insist to go through as I have added summary of pointers which I either learnt from my own experience or heard from some famous people established in beauty industry.

So we all love makeup, and in quest of finding what suits us best.

As they say –

“Makeup is not to beautify an ugly thing,
But to enhance the beauty that already exists !”


So next time someone shames you for makeup, shoot the above punch line πŸ˜‰ (I am gonna do this for sure(evil) )

Assuming that we all do facewash and moisturizing our skin on a regular basis (what a silly point though πŸ˜› ), I am gonna talk about few makeup products one must have to get ready for some occasion( not as routine containing all of the below, unless you be a celebrity πŸ˜‰ )

1. Foundation (with or without concealer and primer) –


Foundation as the name suggests, is the base of your makeup which would cover any pigmentation, dark circles, marks, scars on your skin. There are different types of moisturizer available in market from different brands of course. But coverage-wise you can choose from medium coverage to full coverage foundations.
Medium coverage are the ones which would not cover all the flaws of skin so great but are good if you have relatively good skin.
Full coverage foundations covers all the blemishes, scars, dark circles etc on your skin. There are products which makes your skin look poreless too. So looking for a best foundation based on your skin type and color can be a tricky job.
Also, as almost all beauty bloggers would suggest, make sure the foundation color you choose is maximum 1 shade lighter than your skin tone else it won’t match your body color and you might end up looking funny.
Primer when applied may hep your foundation to go smoother and last longer. It comes in the form of gel,powder and cream. You can use foundation on top of primer(suggested) or without that too .I don’t always go for it though.
Concealer is to hide spots, dark circles, uneven skin tones etc. You may choose to ignore this if your skin is fairly good which we all want end of the day πŸ˜‰

2. Kohl

I am sure everyone’s aware of what Kohl (famously known as Kajal ) is all about. ToΒ apply kajal, make a line from the inside corner of your eye to the outer edge along your upper water line. I seldom ignore this one in my makeup routine as I end up looking ill without it πŸ˜€

3. Lipstick

Again , we all know what a lipstick is. We use it over our lips to color them in some pretty colors. There are different types of lipsticks available in market – Liquid lipsticks, matte lipstick, satin finish lipsticks, glossy lipsticks, moisturizing lipsticks, some lip balms are also colored these days, long wear and transfer resistant lipstick (I reviewed 2 of them and provided swatches in one of my blogs – from Maybelline) etc.
There are numerous shades available in the market and I am never satisfied with my shopping for lipsticks. I always feel can have more πŸ˜‰

4. Eye-Shadow

Eye shadow is to give some pretty or dramatic look to your eye lids. These are again comes as gel or powder. These looks great when properly done, in pictures and so all beauty blogger make sure their eye game is perfect πŸ˜‰

5. Eye-Liner

Eye liner is applied on the crease of your eye lid from where your lashes starts. Well we knew that too, who doesn’t want a perfectly applied winged eye liner after all πŸ˜‰ . These comes in different colors too. I have done many experiments with these ones and they look amazing.
Tip – Start with brown color ones if you aren’t pretty sure that you would be able to apply those with perfection.

6. Mascara


This is to give you those long, dense , black curled eye lashes. you can use fake eye lashes instead too. I am not a fan of those yet though. Be very careful while applying mascara or you may end up ruining your foundation.

7. Highlighter

Highlighter is applied on cheek bones as well as on your nose and forehead areas to give that shiny looking perfect dewy face.

8 Contour

Contour is to make your face look slimmer and may be hide a double chin (not always though πŸ˜€ ). This is applied just under your cheek bones and beneath your jaw line. You need to be really good in applying this because it’s generally 2 shades darker than your skin color and if you mess up, may end up looking awful. So word of caution-first practice it well then you are good to go πŸ™‚ .
I am not a big fan of contour though !!!!

PHEWW!!!!!

Long post though πŸ˜€ but I hope it was little educational and useful though πŸ™‚

Please tell me how you found this post to be in Comments section.

Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick – Review and Swatches

Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick – Review and Swatches

Hi There,

Talking about Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick . This range lipsticks comes with an applicator which makes it easy to do outlines and then fill the lips. This also prevents wastage of extra lipstick. When you apply this range lipsticks, they are liquid and glide easily with the help of applicator. After few minutes, these dry out and become complete matte finish. These are super pigmented lipsticks. The only flaw is (not exactly a flaw because this will stay for 16 hours) is you’ll need oil based makeup remover to remove these lipsticks else it won’t be washed using water or even face-wash. You would need hell lot of efforts to remove it πŸ˜€
Pros:
Matte finish
Highly pigmented
Lasts up to 16 hours
Does not dry out lips
Unique arrow applicator for precise application
Transfer-proof

Cons:
Difficult to remove
Needs an to be removed with an oil-based remover

Price : This comes for a price of INR 650/- for 5ml of product

My Verdict – I loved this range and would love to try other colours from this.

Swatches below
1. Founder – A dark but muted raspberry shade with hints of purple.

undefined undefined

2. Heroine – This shade is coral red with orange undertone. I liked this shade .

Hope you find this helpful ! Share your shades/comments in ‘Comments’ section below !

Will be back with more reviews, till then Tata !
