Shade: The shade Red 2 is a bright tomato red shade which I really liked. There were two shades of red and the other one looked darker so I picked up this bright red lip color!

Texture: The lip gradation has a soft and creamy texture and has an insane pigmentation which works really well for dark lips!

My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation Red 2

As I mentioned earlier, there was another deeper red shade in this range and it appeared a little darker to me and I felt I have such red shades already in my stash so I immediately picked this tomato red shade! 🙂

I loved this bright tint of red upon swatching so it was an obvious choice! It is pigmented and hides the lip pigmentation beneath!

Interestingly, the range has really stunning shades and I loved the three shades which I bought but somehow only thing was that the gradient ombre effect was not there, at least for my lips!

Probably I will show you all how the so called gradient effect looks on my pigmented lips! :-p

I am sure those who have natural pink lips will find these lip crayons great due to the gradient effect actually visible on their lips!

Overall, the pigmentation staying power and formulation of these lip crayons is really good and I love these for the unique shades!
