Two Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipsticks: Review

One of the brands I love the most amongst all is Maybelline with its variety of products at such affordable prices. Totally budget-friendly for a student like me. Half of my makeup stash is dominated by it! Hmm...maybe I should do an exclusive Maybelline post. But coming back to the review...

The Moisture Extreme range of lipsticks from Maybelline are by far the best in their class, with inbuilt lip balm, SPF 15, and a good number of 16 shades. With their buttery smooth texture and great pigmentation these have quickly become my favourite! I picked two everyday wear shades from the array, B41 Chestnut, and B42 Buff.

The lipstick comes housed in a metallic orange beige case, which closes with a click. No worries about chucking it into your handbag. But the pretty finish doesn’t last long as the case is quite prone to scratching.
Texture wise, these lippies glide effortlessly on the lips. There is absolutely no tugging whatsoever. Also, I have dry lips, and have never felt the need to wear a lip balm beneath them. Granted the moisture extreme range isn’t the most hydrating one in the market, but at this price, it doesn’t get better. The staying power is average and ranges from 2.5 to 4 hours, depending on how much snacking I do, but to their credit, they fade evenly. Buff even leaves behind a slight stain, so you don’t end up with naked lips in the middle of a party. These lipsticks do not settle into fine lines.

The red background really brings out the red undertone of Buff (on right) 
Because they are quite creamy, they lend a pretty sheen to your lips on application. Not too creamy or oily, just a luscious gloss effect. It gives a very healthy look, in my opinion. I have never experienced any bleeding or feathering while using the Moisture Extreme lipsticks, but a lip liner never harmed anyone, and I would recommend it just in case. As far as pigmentation is concerned, the lipstick goes opaque in a single swipe, and the colour intensity is buildable.

Chestnut- This is a creamy pink, which makes your teeth look whiter. I can't exactly pinpoint the undertone of it- it's definitely cool. I can discern mauve hues under flash and coral ones in sunlight! It's just one of those chameleon shades. Depending on your lip coloration and lighting the colour turns out differently, but I can guarantee that it will look gorgeous, whichever tone it takes! If applied with a lighter hand, it makes a great everyday shade. Chestnut will suit fair to medium skintones best.

Buff- This is a very flattering coral based pink, with brownish red undertones. It will suit most skintones, being warm. On my lips, it turns out more reddish pink than dusty coral because my lip colour leans towards pink. It makes my teeth look slightly yellow, but in spite of that it is a shade that I absolutely love, and one that you can consider adding to your collection. 

Here are the lip swatches of the two shades-

The Colorsensational Moisture Extreme lipsticks were priced at INR 250 when I purchased them, but it may  have increased since. The bullets are of 4g each, which ought to last long enough.
