These glosses are getting a lot of love from everyone and rightly so.At this point Maybelline is the only drugstore brand that is not charging the heaven and earth for their products (Lakme & Loreal ..are you listening ?) and yet providing quality that is as good or maybe better than the high end products. When these glosses were launched , Avanti n I went shopping for them together and picked up Mirrored mauve and One Shine Day, Both which are reviewed here. But the urge to get one more took over and I got Raspberry Reflections. Apologies in advance for the slightly dull pics, the weather has been gloomy and I am struggling with getting the right lighting for my pics.
I love this gloss. Period. The colour is a fuschia pink with hints of mauve in it. When I saw the tube, I did think that it was too cool toned for me and may wash me out. But On the SA’s insistence I tried it on and it was just the pop of colour that I was looking for to wear in the daytime.As it is common knowledge now, Hubby hates bright lip colors and I love them,so I am always trying to find a colour that both of us will like and this one passes this test.
The applicator is slightly contoured which makes it easy to get a precise application. If I have one grouse with this product, its the packaging. It is BORING.. functional -yes ,attractive-no !
The pigmentation of this particular shade is a bit sheer as compared to Mirrored Mauve or One Shine day , but when applied on the lips. It gives a beautiful pop of colour to brighten up the gloomy rainy days. Girls with pigmented lips,give this a try at the store
Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Gloss Raspberry Reflections Swatches:-
Where these glosses score big is in their staying power. The gloss lasts easily for 3 hours,after which it leaves a tint behind. However, like all glosses, it wont survive a full meal. Have a look at the lip swatches:
Overall, I feel these glosses are a must have in every girls vanity. Affordable and high quality: very rarely does one find these two characteristics in one product.
Here is how it looks on me :
