I’m not a fan of lipsticks and because of the hassle to reapply again and again after eating/drinking, I seldom use them. But decided to get one just for the fun of it and because my lips are usually rather pale looking, I think painting some colours would do me good.Thus, randomly gotten one from Maybelline while I was patronising Guardian. I usually get stuffs from Watsons but I couldn’t find a store the other day so just randomly hopped into Guardian as I wanted to get the Nivea body lotions.
Since I’m not obsessed over lipsticks and reckon that I wouldn’t be a frequent user, price factor is a great consideration. Wanted to get 1 from Revlon that has both lipbalm and lipstick functions but the colour of the Maybelline one won me over. I tried out a few lipsticks on my hand before deciding to get this Maybelline one.
There weren’t so many varieties to choose from when I was deciding my take.
Yes it’s my cup of uncle looking kopi behind. The bf and I are such coffee addicts that we still enjoy our coffee even on weekends! Be it brewed or instant packets! 😀
And because I’ve not gotten myself a SLR/DSLR and didn’t have my digi cam with me, here’s a clearer picture of the lipstick I bought, taken with flash to showcase the slight shimmer.Credits to indianvanitycase.com
Red lips, though highly sexy and seductive, are definitely not my cuppa tea. I prefer sweet pinkish ones to match my sweet pink blusher. Perhaps when I’ve decided that I’ve blossomed into a fine mature lady (i.e. older la), then I’ll set my lips to hot striking red. But for now I’ll stick to sweet pinkish shades. Wanted to get a nude colour from Revlon but decided that it would most prolly make me look paler? LOLThough this Maybelline one doesn’t have lipbalm functions, it’ actually quite alright I guess. One of the reason why I don’t usually put lipsticks is because I feel they ‘suck out’ moisture from your lips, leaving it dry and flaky. As it is, I do have cold sore problems, tracing back to my sec sch days (unknown cause), and hence, I would usually smack on lipbalms only.
But before applying lipstick, this Maybelline color sensational allows me to apply it over my lipbalm so that I get to retain the moisture as well. I’m using lipbalms from Maybelline as well. HAHA.
Apart from that, a minus point of this lipstick is that its appearance doesn’t seem as slick and classy compared to others. Its transparent plastic cap causes it to look like some cheapo lipstick. I think the price is reasonable, got it at Guardian for $17.90.
