Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks On Olive Brown Indian Skin Tone + Pigmented Lips
So I am here with an interesting post today and mind you this is going to be a picture heavy post!
Recently, we had the reviews of Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks on Wise She reviewed by Ritika on her fair skin tone! So, while I was going through the unique shades, I thought of doing a post on how these shades will look on the Olive Brown Indian Skin tone so as to give an idea of the shades to be suitable for the average Indian skin tones.
Well, here is my tryst with these stunning shades.

Directions For Use: Apply to the center of your upper lip, dragging the lipstick to the outer edges, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip for a full coverage lip look!
Ingredients: Isononyl Isononanoate, Octyldodecanol, Oleyl Erucate, Silica, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire Dabeille, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cera Microcristallina/Microcrystalline Wax/Cire Microcristalline, Synthetic Wax, Sesamum Indicum Oil/Sesame Seed Oil, Peg-45/Dodecyl Glycol Copolymer, Kaolin, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Alumina, Benzyl Alcohol, Mel/Honey/Miel, Parfum/Fragrance, (May Contain / Peut Contenir, Mica, Ci 77891/Titanium Dioxide, Ci 77491, Ci 77499/Iron Oxides, Ci 15850/Red 7, Ci 45410/ Red 28 Lake, Ci 45380/ Red 22 Lake, Ci 15985/Yellow 6 Lake, Ci 42090/Blue 1 Lake).
Packaging: The lipstick comes housed in a sleek metallic tube which has a square bottom and comes with a mauvish brown translucent plastic cap which snaps shut tightly. The bottom has got a color coded sticker which also carries the name & number of the shade. Overall, the packaging is quite sturdy, and does not appear to be tacky at all! Great, for a drugstore lipstick brand!
Texture: These are creamy matte lipsticks; they have a creamy texture and glide on lips very smoothly. These are forgiving on lips and do not dry out lips; like most mattes generally do! What i especially like about them is that unlike the Bold Mat range, these ones do not settle into fine lines and are truly matte! No false claims here!
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks on my olive/brown skin tone NC42 + pigmented lips:
A presumably gorgeous cool-toned dusty pink as seen in the tube! I so wanted to fall in love with this particular shade, but sadly, it kind of washes me out! Nothing too horrible, but i would refrain from wearing it alone for the paleness it adorns my skin with! ☹
A very gorgeous shade of warmish dusty-rose with some serious mauvish undertones happening there! The good part of this lipstick is that it works pretty decently for NC 42 kind of olive/Brown skin tones; but if you are a shade or two darker—this may wash you out pretty bad! *heartbreaking*
Truly speaking, the most beautiful shade among all the three above mentioned lipsticks is the one which is specifically made to cater to all skin types! And its the color which is universally flattering— Craving Coral, a gorgeous orange with strong red tones to it! I am in love with this! A must try shade for brown/olive skin tones and others as well! ☺
Pigmentation: In terms of pigmentation, yet again, the Craving Coral steals the show in full awe! The most highly pigmented shade amongst the three—it goes opaque in a single swipe. Though one more swipe may be required for hyper-pigmented lips to show up as a true orangey-red!
Rest, both Lust For Blush and Ravishing rose are not utterly dis-satisfactory in terms of pigmentation. They are quite good whereas the color pay-off goes, but when seen in comparison, they may appear to be lagging behind.
Overall, all three have decent to good pigmentation! A big thumbs up! ☺
