Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in Plum Perfect: Review and Swatchess

Well I make very few promises but once made I try to fulfill them. Remember I promised in my last post that next I would be reviewing a lipstick for fall winters? Here I am with this beautiful shade from our beloved Maybelline Colour Sensational range. Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks need no intro and I guess any creature with a XX Chromosome would be fairly aware of these ;)  
Lets check this one out.
Company Claims:

Why You’ll Love It


  • Crisper color from pure pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
  • Lipcolor so rich, so stunning… it’s sensational
  • 33 Captivating Shades

Expert Tip

Apply your lipstick by starting in the center of your lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip for a gorgeously perfect finish.

Price/Quantity: INR 350/- / 4gm


Packaging:
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks should give a fair share of their popularity to their packaging. The tall steel-looking case does look expensive.The translucent outer cap represents the colour family to which the lipstick belongs and so does the shade-sticker at its bottom.

Shade: Plum Perfect
The shade Plum Perfect is a pure plum shade with obvious magenta undertones and is buildable. Its a beautiful shade that has the capability of brightening up the face. Strangely enough my complexion looks lighter and more even when I wear this lippy :) Will suit all Indian skin tones!

Texture:
Plum Perfect is a moisturising lipstick.Its not as creamy as their Moisture Extreme ones,still it never dries my lips out. 

My Take:
I'm generally not into deep dark shades..not that I don't like or am afraid of carrying it...its just that they add another five years to me ;) But come winters and I hide my peaches and corals back in the stash and get set on the plummy-purply mood!
*The Hand swatch is closer to the actual shade
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Plum Perfect is a highly pigmented plummy lip colour that stays on 4-5 hours easily on me and fades off with a tint behind.The formula is moisturising even in these chilly winters. The quality of the lipstick is pretty decent for the price it comes for. The shade in particular is very fall-kind..if that makes any sense! It makes me look fresher and fairer (as in subsides the uneven skin tone).It's not absolutely fragrance free but the smell can't be called overpowering in any way!

My Likes:
1. Decent Packaging.
2. Beautiful shade (in winters for me)
3. Moisturising formula.
4. Highly pigmented.
5. No bothersome fragrance.
6. Good staying power.

My Dislikes:
Nothing really..just that I personally can't wear these shades all through the year!
  
Last Word: 
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks are great value for money and this particular shades rocks in cooler months.

Repurchase:
Maybelline Colour Sensational- Yes
Plum Perfect- No (I like experimenting with shades)

Over All Rating: 3.5/5 (only coz I'm not a big fan of deep shades)

  5. I have this shade but it transfers to just about everything. I really wonder how could you apply it so gorgeously. Lovely lip swatches. But I have a question for you. When you said it stays 4-5 hours, did you mean without eating/drinking? coz I personally feel very uncomfortable wearing such creamy lipsticks that would keep staining everything.

    1. Thanx Gaganpreet..offcourse 5hours without much lip service..but I did take mini snacks in between when I wore it. Infact I didn't even find it as creamy as their moisture extreme counterparts.. Hope I answered!
