Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 – Hi everyone, Maybelline recently launched these new lip glosses in the market and when i saw the ads I wanted one due to the uber cute packaging.However,I can never buy only one and I bought 3 instead . At least , Maybelline hasn’t lost the plot when it comes to pricing. Today,I will review the shade Glam 9 – why the don’t give names is beyond me . These are known as Color Elixirs abroad and Lip polish here. I kinda like the name Color Elixir more- what about you?
Price: Rs 450 . Comes in 12 shades ( not too sure about that though).They will be available on Purplle.com soon.

Specially designed Leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick & precise.
My experience with Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9:-
- Packaging: The packaging is super cute and on first glance one feels like its a lipstick that is housed is a lip gloss packaging. The metallic accent with Maybelline embossed on the the neck of the tube just adds to the class. The “ leaf shaped” applicator picks up the right amount of colour .Now only if they gave this a name *sigh*
- The colour: In the tube it looks like a rosy pink ,but it is more sheer than it looks in the tube. This shade is definitely not for all skin tones so try at the store. It can wash out someone with very yellow tones or duskier gals .
The texture: Its a tad sticky – but not the kind which will get stuck to your hair .The gloss goes on evenly without any streakiness and gives a nice glossy shine. The gloss is quite pigmented as you can see in swatch below.
The staying power: The gloss stays on for a good 3-4 hours without meals . Its unfair to expect a gloss to last thru full meals,but this one survives light snacks and careful eating.The gloss doesn’t lead any stain/tint behind after fading off but keeps lips moisturized even after fading off which lets me skip balm if I wish to do so!!
