My Thoughts About Maybelline Big Apple Red Lipstick 211 Cosmopolitan Red

Color, Texture and Staying Power: Cosmopolitan Red is a lovely cherry red which is slightly deeper and brighter than other reds. It is the deepest and my most favorite red in this range. It’ll definitely suit almost all skin tones and instantly brighten up the face. I really love this particular red which looks really nice on every kind of skin tone. It is slightly drying in texture,pigmentation is medium but build able, accentuates fine lines if 2-3 swipes are applied. So its better to prepare your lips before application.Preparing your lips is always good for even application of any lipstick. It will increase the lasting power of lipsticks. Perfect and precise application gives you amazing pout:)

My experience with Maybelline Big Apple Red Lipstick-211 Cosmopolitan Red

I have mentioned in my previous post that I have picked 4 shades from this range. Maybelline Big Apple Red Lipstick-211 Cosmopolitan red is Beautiful cherry red with deeper tones. .It will suit all kind of skin tones and if you love to wear 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.
