Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 09 Review
Those who cannot resist cute packaging might have stocked these lip beauties long back! On my visit to Shoppers Stop I instantly fell in love with this cute looking lip polishes at the Maybelline Counter. I tested a few and zeroed upon Glam 2 which was a very sweet coral shade. With its super sweet opaque pigmentation and cute packaging it was among my most used lip products until one unfortunate day it disappeared in one of the weddings I attended ! It was during this time that i decided to rebuy it and while rebuying it on flipkart I couldn’t help but buy another one along with it :P and that is how I landed up with this lip color.
Maybelline lip polishes come in see-through lipstick like packaging but when opened come with a wand applicator for easy application of the buttery-moisturizing gloss! They are known as the Maybelline Lip Polish in India and other Asian countries and known as Maybelline Color Elixir in other parts of the world. With so many shades to choose from this range by Maybelline is definitely a hit.
Price and Quantity: INR 450 for 5 ml
Variant being Reviewed: Glam 09
Other Variants: Variants have numbers instead of names (
One Word: CUTE!
Packaging: very attractive packaging, love at first sight wala kind ;) Many of the bloggers I came across picked it up for the cute packaging. Comes with a leaf-shaped applicator that gives precise application . I personally feel the silver cap along with the see through lipstick kind of bottle makes the whole product CLASSY!
Texture: Creamy ( some might find it to be sticky!) It took me 2 minutes to settle down on lips evenly
Pigmentation: Highly pigmented with no shimmer and glitter particles! One swipe gives enough color to hide pigmentation of lips.
Staying Power: 2 hours but gives good coverage to lips.
Shade/ Colour: Pretty summery pink rich bubblegum color
My experience: I had already read reviews as to how awesome they were and true to its fame the lippies are gorgeous! But hey, remember the shade should look good on you, the suiting thing ruined it for me. Glam 09 looked bad on me , kind of patchy on my lips and wouldn’t stay even for 2 hours!
Availability: Available in all online shopping sites and Maybelline counters
In a Nutshell: Exfoliate your lips well before application, I was left with patchy lips when applied without exfoliation. The gloss doesn't leave any stain behind and does not last between meals and needs touch ups between light snacks.
Pros : Light weight formula, creamy texture and high pigmentation gloss when applied gives a rich glossy look and yes its very moisturizing and does the work of all 3 things a lip-gloss, a lip balm and a lipstick! Plus excellent formula, decently priced and glossy finish, what more can you ask for?!
Cons : Might not suit a large number of skin tones, suits only fair skin. Staying power is also a let down!
Who will like this: Women with fair skin tones! Dusky and medium skin toned beauties stay away from this lip color , its going to wash you out!BlingSparkle Rating: 3.5/5 (The shade dint suit me plus staying power is very less)
BS Tip : Wait for at least 2-3 minutes after application , it helps the gloss to settle down evenly on your lip! two swipes and you are ready to wow the world!
