AMW Reviews: Maybelline The Jewels by Colorsensational

When I say a posh-looking lipstick tube makes a huge difference, I mean it!  I'm glad drugstore brands like Maybelline is also taking time to create lipsticks housed in gorgeous tubes!  

The Jewels by ColorSensational definitely looks like a JEWEL inside my lipstick case!


I got 2 shades tested out for you ---
 Fuchsia Crystal and Berry Brilliant

Maybelline says ---
Take a walk on the wild side this holiday season with 6 Special Edition jewel-toned lipsticks from Maybelline's best-selling franchise ColorSensational.

Available shades:  Red Garnet, Rubylicious, Refined Wine, Fuchsia Crystal, Berry Brilliant and Amethyst Ablaze 

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Gorgeous packaging!
  • Creamy texture.
  • Doesn't dry out my lips.
  • Pigmented shades.
  • Glossy finish.
  • The gorgeous 6 shades that are in reds, pinks and purples are all unique.
  • Staying power is great.  Though some of the pigments may transfer, the lipstick leaves a gorgeous stain of color on your lips for the rest of the day.
  • Lightly scented.
Cons
  • Difficult to remove at the end of the day.
  • Will transfer to mugs or glass during meals.  The lipstick also may "bleed" if your lips are extremely dry.
  • Limited Edition.
Overall
Creamy texture, good pigmentation and gorgeous shades.

Tips
  • A lip brush can be used for a more defined lips.
  • If your lips aren't dry, you can apply The Jewels by ColorSensational lipsticks on its own.
  • If your lips are extremely dry, it helps to exfoliate your lips with a lip cream and cotton bud prior to lipstick application.
  • Do not apply The Jewels by ColorSensational lipsticks on top of a lip balm as the color will slide off easily.
  • For bright-colored lipsticks, always take the lipstick with you for retouch.
  • Since removal is more difficult as compared to other lipsticks, use a lips makeup remover.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!
 
To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone into brighter colored lipstick shades. 

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Maybelline counters for Php399.00 (approx $9.50).  LIKE Maybelline Philippines on Facebook for more product information and details.
