My take on the Maybelline lip polish Glam-12:
Here is one of the latest releases by Maybelline that hit the market and became an instant hit among many gloss lovers out there. Though I was not much excited seeing few of the shades released, still I am quite happy with one of the pigmented color out of the 15 shade options available. And here is Glam -12 for you all.
Shade: Though the shade appeared more of a pinkish red when I swatched it on my hand at the counter, on the lips it converts into more of a deep red with orange undertones. The color attracted me as it is surely going to suit all skin tones equally well. I found some shades too pale for the Indian skin tone and few seemed more of nude sorts but this color seemed just right in terms of color and pigmentation.
Texture: The lip polish is more of a liquid lip color so the texture is thicker and more pigmented than a regular gloss. It seems a bit sticky in feel but that justifies the good staying power of the gloss. The lip polish gives a great shine along with a lovely color and hides the lip pigmentation in 2 swipes. The color doesn’t bleed and fades away evenly.
Staying power: The lip polish stays on for 4 hours easily with a meal in between. Quite an intense color stays on the lips even after a meal which eliminates the need of a re-application.
Packaging: I really love the idea of lipstick styled tube housed inside the transparent and sturdy short rectangular plastic case. The applicator is leaf shaped, again quite unique which makes the application quite precise and easy.
- Beautiful orange red color
- Comes in a beautiful packaging.
- Good staying power.
- Color doesn’t bleed
- Fades away evenly
- Survives a meal to a good extent.
- Slightly sticky in nature.
Final Verdict: The lip polish is a good option for many gloss lovers out there who need a well pigmented and decent staying power. The price and the cute packaging are an added plus J.
