Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Madison Mauve
I don’t have many plum lipsticks. Madison Mauve is such a unique. It’s one of those products you can just look at and admire the depth of its sheen an prettiness!
It’s a bold violet red with micro shimmer and wait for it… A blue sheen. A very pretty blue sheen.
The lipstick itself is very pigmented and goes on very smoothly. Almost all Colorsensational lipsticks have great formula. It wears for 6 or more hours but leaves a nice stain as it gradually reduces.
The finish is glossy and lips look very moist with this on. It don’t think it’s as creamy as some of the other lipsticks in this range. For me, I noticed that it did enhance the lines. The microshimmer is subtle and doesn’t travel around your face. If you plan on wearing this for an occasion or a long time, I’d recommend using a lip liner to avoid bleeding.
For the price and uniqueness of the shade, this is definitely worth buying. It’s not a colour that’s worn often but I can imagine this suiting deeper skin tones very well. It would look vampish on paler tones ( unless that’s what youre going for).
The packaging is pretty ok. The plastic cover gets really messy after more wear.
