Lipstick Love : Maybelline The Jewels Berry Brilliant Lipstick Review and Swatches!

Almost the whole of the blogging world is going gaga over the Jewels collection from Maybelline Colorsensational range ! 
I for once had no intentions to get any shade from this range as I feared none of the shades would suit me and rather would luk garish against my skin.So when the SA tried to swatch I was unwilling but she was so sweet seriously!And the moment she swatched Berry Brilliant I fell in love :P It is darker than Fuchsia Crystal.And another shade Rubylicious is a gorgeous pinkish red!

Price : Rs.350/-
  •  The packaging is similar to the normal Colorsensational ones but has a baby pink cap with multi dimensional strips on it.The Jewels was printed on the cover and I nearly regretted removing the cover ;) It would have been great if it had been printed on the cap instead :) 

  • Berry Brilliant is a pretty berry shade with fuchsia and plum in it :)
  • The texture is smooth and creamy but feels very light on the lips.
  • The pigmentation is the best part : highly pigmented and u need a single swipe to cover the dark areas of the lips.

  • It is very moisturising more like a lip balm and the finish is glossy.After half an hour or so the glossiness vanishes but still lips feel soft!
  • The staying power is 3 hrs or so on me and with meal it leaves behind a baby pink tint to be exact.
  • It does bleed due to the balmy texture.
  • This shade adds such a pop of color that I prefer keeping the rest of the face natural.
  • Suits fair and dusky skin tones :) 
  • Maybelline has definitely hit the Jackpot with this range.Wish they bring more everyday wear kind of shades under this.
  • Perfect for fall and winter :) And U can rock Navratri and Diwali with shades from this range ;)
  • I have swatched some other shades which I thot might be similar but Colorbar Velvet Matte Oh My Magenta was the only 1 close.

From L-R:Colorbar V.M. Oh My Magenta,Colorbar V.M. Rum Raisin,Amway Attitude Plum Shine,MAybelline Berry Brilliant.Bottom:Maybelline Raspberry Sorbet.
