Reviews, Swatches, Shades, Price, Buy Online Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation
Maybelline New York, a drug store brand name that is not new to anyone. Off late Maybelline has really stepped up their game. They have launched some really good stuff, like their nudes eye shadow palette and the fit me makeup range. Their latest launch is their lip gradation by colorsensational! Abroad it’s known as colour blur! Today I will review and swatch the lip gradation by maybelline colorsensational in Coral 1 and Mauve 1. But I also have swatches of all the shades for you to choose your favourire shade from the lip gradation range.
Gradient lips is a major Korean trend, it is simply a way to use your lipstick in a way that looks like you have been sucking on a Popsicle and keep it looking like that for hours. It can look extremely natural if you use a pink or a red shade. I have been eagerly waiting to get my hands on these from quite a while and when Maybelline put up a teaser on their Instagram page I was really excited.
SHADES AVAILABLE: They have 8 matte shades for you to choose from. The options are: red 1, red 2, pink 1, pink 2, mauve 1, coral 1, fuchsia 1, orange 1
Let’s talk about the maybelline lip gradation more in detail shall we! It is a slender stick, It is a double sided lip product! On the retractable side is the actual product it doesn’t need to be sharpened and I find it easy to use, it is slender enough to line my lips very nicely in the inner corners and the cupid’s bow and the other side has the cushion blender tool. This tool is used to smudge the product on your lips to create a softer look. It is very sturdy and travel friendly.
Swatches from bottom to top: red 1, red 2, pink 1, pink 2, mauve 1, coral 1, fuchsia 1, orange 1
The lip gradation lipstick is quite pigmented just one swipe on your lips and you are good to go. It is very creamy and glides on very easily on your lips. It is a matte lipstick so it has no shine whatsoever. It does not settle in the lip lines. It feels very soft and very comfortable on the lips. Maybelline colorsensational lip gradation Doesn’t feel heavy on the lips and it is not very drying. The lasting power of colorsensational lip gradation is also pretty good. It will last you a good 3-4 hours with light meals. It has no fragrance.

I own 2 shades, coral 1 and mauve 1 in lip gradation range and I must say I do love them. I like the coral 1 more than mauve 1. The lip gradation mauve 1 looks a little brownish on me and I am not a very big fan of brown lipsticks. The coral1 on the other hand is a very soft orangish pinkish colour. I pair lip gradation coral1 with nice bold eyes. It gives a very natural colour to the lips. It is very easy to use, just one swipe you do get amazing result on the lips. But if you find it very bold that’s when the smudger comes in use, it absorbs the excess product on your lips and leaves behind a stain. I personally didn’t like the smudger much it didn’t do nothing that a tissue won’t do, so I don’t see myself using the smudger much, again I feel cleaning it would be an issue.

I did use the mauve 1 as a lip liner with Mac kinda sexy which looked pretty awesome. You can also use 2 shades to give an ombré effect! Like the red and the orange it would look pretty good. You can line your lips with red and fill in a little with the orange and use the smudger if you wish or a plain tissue would the trick or your fingers to help you blend them together and voila it would look really good! It will give you a cascading effect!
