AMW Reviews: Maybelline Lip Polish by ColorSensational

Happy Wednesday!

Okay, I am still sick with crazy, breathtaking (in a negative way) cough but I'm choosing to stay positive today!  There's no point sulking about my cough so I've decided to talk something I'm excited about!  Imagine, a lip product that works like a very pigmented lipstick yet as hydrating as a lip gloss!  Have you found such product?  If not, you're in luck!  I found one!  And the good news is, it won't burn your wallet! :D

Maybelline Lip Polish by Colorsensational
Even their packaging is amazing!  Check out how it looks like a lipstick bullet yet it is housed in a lip gloss packaging!  I even had Mr. AMW fooled! He thought this was housed in a lipstick-like packaging.

Maybelline says ---

AMW says ---
  • Packaging.  Some may find it boring but I like the "lipstick bullet" design.  You can also see through the shades.
  • None of the strong smell/scent.
  • Leaf-like applicator making it easy to apply and define your lips.
  • Pigmentation is not bad!
  • Spreads easily on lips.
  • Right amount of shine, not too wet-looking.
  • Hydrating and non-drying.
  • Does not stain the lips. 
  • Has a good amount of "shine" that makes your lips look smooth and sexy.
  • Price.
  • If you are looking for rich, super creamy color that's highly pigmented, some of the shades aren't intense, Maybelline Lip Polish is more of in between pigmented and translucent. 
  • Not as long lasting as regular lipstick.   
  • Shade names won't be found at the packaging.
  • Minimal sticky feel.
In between lipgloss and lipstick in one!  Pigmentation is good, better for the darker shades as one swipe is enough.  Non-sticky, hydrating, stays a good amount of time (around 2-3 hours) and available in shades that works for all skintone!

  • Can be worn alone or on top of your favorite lipstick for more intensity.
  • Wipe the doe foot applicator after EVERY use.
  • Apply using the "flat" surface of the doe foot applicator all over your lips, use the pointed tip to "define" your lips.
  • Apply as lightly as possible, if you press the applicator against your lips with pressure, the application may come off uneven.
 Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Lipstick wearers who dislike the dry feeling of lipsticks.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available locally at Maybelline counters for Php349.00 each (approx $8.11).

The name Lip Polish by ColorSensational will be gone after you peeled the seal off!

Real packaging of Maybelline Lip Polish

The applicator that's a hit for me!

Swatch on arm
(two swipes per swatch)
1. Pop 5 - a sweet pop of baby pink shade.
2. Pop 6 - in between orange and red.
3. Glam 2 - my lips but glossier and better shade.
4. Glam 5 - light purple shade.
5. Glam 6 - dark purple shade that's so in for the year 2014!
6. Glam 12 - medium red
7. Glam 13 - brownish red shade
8. Glam 15 - nude

My lips aren't in the best condition to test out all 8 shades so I picked 3 shades that I love most from this collection!  Seriously speaking, I love them all!  But these 3 I find myself picking them up more often!

Glam 6
I have found dark purple shade of lipsticks from various brands but they always came out a bit off for me as they look too dark and drying on me!  The Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 6 is perfect for start-up dark purple lips wearer like me!

Glam 15 
If you want nude lips but dislikes the dry, sickly effect, the Glam 15 is perfect as it has a hint of gold that brighten up any complexion!

Glam 12
For someone who dislikes bright colored lipsticks especially the shade RED, I am surprised I am picking this shade more and more now that I'm a mom!  It must be the fact that I wear less makeup so I compensate by wearing bright colored lipsticks!  Glam 6 is a perfect shade of red that works even for daytime!   This looks like my favorite MAC Ruby Woo, shinier and more hydrating!
