Maybelline Lip Gradation in Mauve 1: Review, Price, Swatches and FOTD

Now,I'm not someone who unfailingly goes running to the brand counters every time the brand comes up with a new launch..yeaahhh yeeaahhh a lil' less tempted beauty blogger!!!!
But recently I've gone bonkers over nude lip colours and matte texture...like BONKERSSSS!!!
So couldn't really resist the temptation (of the shade and texture NOT the gradation thingy..yeah)
Off late Maybelline has been very generous with new launches and the latest kid on the block is the Maybelline Lip Gradation.

A few details in the pics below:

Price: INR 500/-

Maybelline Lip Gradation comes in a double-ended,twist up crayon like packaging. On one side is the lip colour while the other end has sponge tip. 5stars for being colour-coded. The outer cellophane has the important details...why oh! why,Maybelline don't yaa know we'll throw it away as soon as we get our hands on the product?The actual lip colour bullet/crayon/pencil/dunno..is slim enough to outline lips and thick enough to fill them (thumbs up on that). The cap click locks,so keep it in your bags ladies!!!

The Texture is to die for!!PERIOD!
It is smooth like a dream. It sets to a matte finish. You won't feel once you have something on your lips..
Do I need to say more?

Staying Power is somewhere between 4-5 hours with light meals and it doesn't go off completely..Like even after 7hours,it didn't make me look like a corpse :P Hehe...

Pigmentation is pretty good for a nude shade..My lips are pigmented and it fixed in just a coat...drumroll plz!!

It comes in 8 oh-already-seen kinda shades.. Yeahhh..trust me if you are a lippy enthusiast,you would be having a dupe of all..well almost!! Mauve 1 is a  subtle mauvy brown colour. Very Safe shade as I would call it..It would suit probably all skin tones!

See how it looks in different lights and on me:

All in All I'm loving it as of now,the shade,the texture,the pigmentation and the staying power is all great for the price...what isn't great though is the price for the quantity.
I mean 1.25gm??? Is it a lip liner???

Over All Rating: 4.5/5
