It has been a while since I’ve done a makeup review. Maybe because I have been rushing around way too much to take a nice photo before heading out. Anyway, I just gotten this latest lip colour from Maybelline, and since I had some extra time at the office, here’s a little review on it.
This latest Lip Polish by Maybelline apparently incorporates the best of balm, lipstick and gloss in one tube. Honestly, when I saw the packaging, I got a little confused. It absolutely looked like a lipstick! I really loved the packaging. Typical girl, to be a sucker for packaging. Haha.
Anyway, the Lip Polish comes in 20 shades, that’s a pretty good range IMHO. The one I got is Glam7, which is a coral-pink-nude sort of mix. It is rather hard to describe the exact colour.
Generally, the texture is just like your usual lip gloss in a tube, a little sticky with lots of shine. However, in this case, despite the stickiness (and colour swatch), the colour was not very dark, but the shine was excellent. I think the colour is really natural, especially when people like me don’t like dark lipsticks. I feel my lips aren’t very pretty or has a nice shape to be able to carry dark lip colour.
The Lip Polish comes with a leaf-shaped brush applicator, which apparently makes application soft with a high-shine finish. The shine part is right, as my lips became super shiny, making it look kissable and pouty. Best thing is that this Lip Polish does not have a strong scent or perfume. In fact, I am still trying to figure out if I am smelling a subtle chocolate scent or not.
My lips never looked sexier. Haha.
