My experience with Maybelline Big Apple Red Lipstick-210 dare to be red

I have mentioned in my previous post that I have picked 4 shades from this range. Maybelline Big Apple Red Lipstick-210 Dare to be Red is beautiful brick red with little hints of pink .It will suit all kind of skin tones and if you stay away from bold red shades, then this is for you. It is very wearable shade of red, which can be pulled off on any occasion. Pigmentation is great of these beauties.

It provides 100% pigmentation in just two swipes and hides all the pigmentation of your lips. I have noticed some fruity fragrance during application, which is mild and fades away after seconds of application. It is soft and creamy. It glides like a dream onto the lips without any tugging or pulling. The lipstick sets to a nice semi matte finish after few seconds of application. The Staying power of this lipstick is commendable. It stayed on me for 5-6 hours. It does survive drinking and light meal and it does transfers a lot. A lip liner can increase the staying power of these lipsticks because they are not completely matte in nature.
