Hope you all are having an amazing weekend! I am having a great one because this morning I purchased a beautiful lipstick from a recently launched collection called Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels – Shade Rubylicious #063. Ever since I have seen their print ad online I was tempted to try it out. I hope you can imagine my excitement as I put it on the lips the next second I purchased it and in the evening I am writing the review! ☺
- ILLUMINATED COLOR only from our deep jewelucent pigments.
- CREAMIER FEEL only from our nourishing honey nectar
- A captivating jewel collection in 8 deeply provocative shades
I am smitten by the fact that Maybelline has named this collection as “Jewels” – all the 8 colors are warmer shades of pinks & reds. The packaging is very cute & feminine. I love the prism effect cap which reflects colors with silver body. It truly looks like a “Jewel” in my Lipstick Box among all the normally packed lipsticks. (I will be dreaming about this lipstick tonight ☺☺)
Rubylicious is a pretty pink color with tone of red in it. This shade is difficult to describe because in store lighting it seemed like red based with hint of pink in it & at home (in pictures – natural lightning) it looks more ruby pink to me with red undertone. Either ways I am in love with the shade. ☺
The texture is amazingly buttery. It glides on easily on the lips & I felt it moisturises the lips too. It is highly pigmented, two swipes give opaque coverage. It also takes care of covering the lip pigmentation. It does not settle between the fine lines either. The creaminess of the lipstick feels light on the lips. The finish is also lovely with sheen gloss.
As far as the staying power is concerned, it lasted a good 2-3 hours on me with a light meal in between & after that; it leaves a pink stain on the lips which lasts quite longer.
