Maybelline New York Colorsensational the Loaded bolds Lipstick in Raspberry Rendezvous Review
Recently Maybelline introduced the loaded bolds range in India which has some 10 shades ranging from purples, blues, white to reds.

Today I am reviewing the shade Raspberry Rendezvous which is a stunning Plummy Raspberry pink lipstick.

My Overall Experience:
Packaging: Maybelline lipstick comes encased in a steel tube packaging with blue casing. Shade names are printed at the bottom of the tube. I wish we could visualise the shades from packaging. I found these quite sturdy and not prone to breakage.
Shadewise: This range has 10 different shades ranging from purple, blue, white to pinks and reds. It was interesting to find white and blue shades in this range. Raspberry Rendezvous is a gorgeous plummy raspberry pink shade which instantly brightens up my face. It goes well with bold eye makeup too. It is a stunning shade and would suit most of the Indian skintone. This shade is intense and leaves deep stains behind.
Pigmentation: These shades are richly pigmented, I need maximum two swipes for full coverage for my pigmented lips. I like how buildable these lipsticks are.
Texture and Finish: Texture of this lipstick is so smooth and does not tug or feels dry on lips. It has beautiful creamy matte finish, which takes some time to set. It does not set into complete matte finish and does not feel dry on lips. It is lightweight on lips and keeps lips hydrated. I don’t find these patchy rather buildable upto full coverage with two swipes. These lipsticks are however not transferproof. I find these lipsticks very similar to Maybelline bold mat lipsticks.
Staying Power: I was not expecting higher staying power as these set into creamy mattes but I was mistaken, the shade fades evenly with time leaving bold lip stains which stay intact until you remove with makeup removers. Even with makeup removers, it is a hassle to remove makeup traces completely. I use these lipsticks as a stain most of the time, I apply a sheer layer with a lip brush and the stain stays intact for whole day with full meals. I would advise you guys to apply with a brush as the stains this lipstick leaves are quite unforgiving.
Availability: Easily available at stores and online sites.

Overall Recommendation: I would highly recommend this range to everyone who are fans of bold shades and prefer creamy mattes. If you do not like lipsticks which leave bold stains behind then you won’t like this range at all. I personally loved this range and use these lipsticks every now and then. I am planning to buy Dynamite red, smoking red from this range.
