Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish

Part of my blog title says "And Things"which means though I looove nail art and polish..I would also like to review from time to time things that catch my fancy. Like I did the post on dupes of Naked palette in Inglot shades.
So here I am with another one of those things!
Lip Polish u say? anything with the word "polish" is definitely getting my attention!
Maybelline recently launched their new range of Colorsensational Lip Polish here in India also known as Color Elixir Liquid Lip Balm in US. I am still sold on lip polish.

The brand claims: It's the ultimate lip potion and has multiple benefits. Like the Maybelline New York Girl who has it all, this Lip Polish has it all too! It has the Shine of a Lip Gloss, Color of a Lip Stick and takes care of the lips like a Lip Balm. 


  • 1.Potent Color Extracts: Pure saturated color pigments that provide deep intense color like a lipstick.
  • 2.Concentrated Liquid Balm: Moisturizing Liquid Conditioning Balm gets the lips ready for Intensely Rich color. Gives a soft Cushiony feel & care to the lips.
  • 3.Glossy Shine Serum: Built-in glossy top-coat, that makes lips look fuller & more luscious.
  • Specially designed Leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick & precise.

Now whats interesting upfront is the packaging. It looks like a shiny lipstick with a transparent cover but it isnt! Its a liquid gloss-like consistency with a doe foot applicator. The applicator itself is nice and can decently help to shape the lip line too. Its always an added benefit if the shade can be seen from outside of the packagaing.

What impresses me most is the long stay power and the moisturizing part of these. Non sticky, really moisturizing and weightless feel on my lips has made me use this 3 times in a short span of 5 days. And that is saying something coz it has surpassed my fav lip product; the revlon lip butters!! 

They are super comfortable on the lips like a balm, shiny like a gloss, and they're pigmented like a lipstick. They are slightly sheer but 2 swipes makes this shade opaque. It has a slight odd smell..but nothing too powerful or artificial.

 In Shade

In Sunlight

This shade lasted my lips for about 6 hours without a meal..and about 4 hours with a meal in between..and this shade leaves behind a strong tint like dark pinkish hue. I am definitely going to check out the other shades in this range. Need a fuchsia pink and a deep red shade in my stash.
What more can u ask? Price? Rs.450/- for 5ml..which is really quite decent!! They come in 15 shades. You can see more shades here

Only thing I can complain is why Maybelline no give names to shades as they did in US? Its difficult to remember these with numbers. These are one of the best launches from maybelline: its a lipstick, lip balm and lip gloss all packed in one!!
