Today I am going to review a very pretty shade from the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick line called Hooked on Pink.
These used to be priced at INR 299 and it has now been increased to INR 310 I think. You get 4.2 grams of the product.
The packaging is sturdy and looks good. I like the idea of colour-coded caps (pink for pink-toned lipsticks, brown for nudes and browns, etc.). The name of the shade is given on a sticker (which is also colour-coded) at the base of the lipstick.
Hooked on Pink is a lovely deep pink shade with no shimmer. It does not have any brown tones. The colour brightens up the face a lot. I feel it will suit a wide range of skin tones. It is more of an occasion-wear lipstick since it is a bit too bright and attention-catching for daily wear. It is highly pigmented…one swipe is enough for the true colour to show up and to hide lip pigmentation.

The lipstick is quite creamy and glides on well. It has a not-so-mild sweet smell which goes away in a little while after applying it. I wouldn’t say it is very moisturising but it definitely does not dry out the lips as well. It does settle in fine lines on the lips. The staying power is average…it fades away in two to three hours, depending on how much you eat in that time. This particular shade lasts a bit longer because it is a deeper shade and it might survive small snacks, but vanishes completely with heavy meals.

In the swatch photos, I have swiped the lipstick first once and then thrice with a light hand. You can see how pigmented it is.
I would recommend it if you are looking for a deep pink lipstick and don’t mind reapplying it now and then.
