Maybelline has launched another new product which is kind of a little more exciting than few of the last launches. I was eyeing these small little tubes of lip paints and went to Lifestyle store to get a few shades. Unfortunately most of the shades out of stock and I picked 3 that I assumed would suit my complexion. I would love to see Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paints online though –
Color Jolt Lip Paint goes where no gloss has dared go before. Its pigment packed, 1000 watt shine will truly electrify your surroundings.
Packaging is a real winner in my eyes, as thats what sucked me into buying these. The small 4.5 ml tubes are colored with long black caps. The tube is small with a pointy sponge tip applicator that works really well.
Texture & Formula – The texture of Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paints is similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, mousse like and matte. The texture is light and feels good on the lips, very light weight. It applies evenly and sets almost immediately. By setting it doesn’t mean that it becomes transfer proof, it does transfer and keeps fading throughout the wear. It feels velvety matte and emphasises lip lines.
Shades – Show Off Nude is a peachy brown nude, which would suit fair to medium complexions. It can be a really good everyday color for them. On Me it doesn’t look good and washes me out.
Vanity Voilet is a gorgeous purple pink, I love such shades and can see myself wearing it often.
Vamp Red – A true red, super gorgeous, would suit all skin tones.
Pigmentation – Except show off nude, rest of the shades are quite pigmented. I get almost opaque finish in one stroke, however due to pigmented lips I have to layer it twice. You can adjust the intensity and can also wear it as a stain or cheek color.
For lip swatches you can watch video below –
These are fun products and available in quite a few shades. The small tubes are good for handbag and the applicator works really well too. Only downside is the staying power which is not more than 4 hours, and the non-tqransferproof formula adds to it.
