Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Fatal Red Review


Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Fatal Red


Have you ever been astounded by the sheer resplendence of Dita Von Teese, Taylor Swift or Marilyn Monroe? I know I have!

The only thing common between the above mentioned three are there signature red lips. Their striking red lips (among other things) makes them pop icons of their time.
One huge misconception women labour under, is that one needs confidence to pull off red lipstick. Instead, the reality is that red lipstick brings on an unmatched confidence that makes you feel incredible. Take it from me, I consider it my personal chain linked armour. 😉

The product I am now going to review is the first red lipstick I ever purchased and have continued to use for the past three years.

My views on Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick Fatal Red:

This is a lipstick that I have been using for the past three years. It undoubtedly has its flaws but the colour more than makes up for them. Let me first describe the colour. It’s this warm yet bright glossy red, that photographs gorgeously. It ends up looking a tad understated on me because I use the blotting method to make the lip colour matte and I have incredibly pigmented lips too.

But darn, it does look amazing! It is that perfect carrot red that can suit a wide range of skin tones. I know that the formula isn’t that great, but because this was my first red I tend to ignore its flaws.

The glossy finish of the lipstick lasts for about 2 hours, the colour lasts for another 2 perfectly and then it begins to settle in the fine lines. This last phase is the time one should reapply, but because I use the blot method, I need to scrub off all traces of lipstick and start over. A time consuming process that I sometimes forget to do, leaving me worse for wear by the end of the day.

I have attached an OOTD taken during a party in which I am wearing the Maybelline Colorsensational Fatal Red with a sunny lemon yellow one shoulder Grecian gown. I know that Vandana asked for a FOTD in the last review’s comments, but I am too lazy to take a selfie. So this is for you Van! Tell me how I look. 😛
