Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick Lacquered Brown

If like me you had been skipping drugstore brand makeup counters because the New Launches were far & few in between, then Ladies I've got NEWS for you.Maybelline counters are suddenly abuzz with a whole lot of action, with tempting shades of swirl gel eyeliners and Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipsticks & what have you!! Maybelline is rolling out new products like there is no tomorrow & Boy Am I glad?!
Here's the latest addition to my Vanity kit :D Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick Lacquered Brown

Internationally Maybelline has launched 10 shades in the range, in India currently only 5 are being retailed.Here's what Maybelline claims about the Colorsensational High shine lipsticks.
  • MIRROR-LIKE COLOR from micro-mirror pigments
  • CREAMIER FEEL from nourishing honey nectar

The packaging is chic mirror finish square tube it harks back to the design elements of earlier Colorsensational lipsticks.

The shade-Maybelline has launched 5 shades so far in India, 3 shades are pinks & coral, one brown and one plummy shade.The pinks & corals are very tempting in the tube but upon swatching I felt lacquered brown had much better pigmentation and color payoff and smoother texture.


Lacquered brown is a mauvy-brown sheer glossy lippie with mauvery-purple glitter.The glitter is very fine and you can't feel it on your lips.The lippies in this range are very sheer on first swipe but the color is buildable.The high gloss finish wears off after first one hour but the lipstick continues to be on the lips for good 3 hours.


The lippie packs in 3.5 grams of product for INR 399/-


Hand swatches on MAC NC 45 skin. Right swatch single swipe,left swatch 3 swipes.
The lisptick has a very nice hydrating feel and you don't need to wear it with a lip balm, after applying this even after 3 hours my lips felt nice & soft as if I'd applied some good lip balm.

Lip swatch indors under flash light- here it appears more mauvy pink than brown.
Overall Thoughts- The high shine glossy finish, the balm like feel on the lips, fairly decent pigmentation make it a great lippie to add to your collection this season. 
I would definitely reccommend you to add Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick to your 'Lust List'.If you are a fair to mediul gal then try Fruit punch shade from the collection and eye popping glossy coral from this range.

    1. Hi Indu, long time no news, hope you are doing great. I do have swatches of other shades but unfortunately didn't note down the shades numbers against the swatches so I'm not sure if those will be of much use.

    1. yes this is a playful brown, not the drab boring kind. Has enough gloss to work without a lipgloss and the shade plays between brown and mauve depending on the lip pigmentation. definitely check it out!

  6. I wanted it to look like it does in the first lip swatch sadly it doesnt. It looks like absolute mauve. :(
    Not bad just unexpected :)
    But what explains the +100/- tag?

    1. Yeah this is a tricky shade, it looks brown in certain lighting then mauve in other, plus the pigmentation on the lip also changes how these sheerer shades show up on lips. Yup that 100 bucks /255 bump in price is quite annoying, thats what's holding me from buying more shades now.
