Hey readers, today I will be reviewing a Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in shade Velvet Beige. I have been looking for a neutral shade lip liner for some time and I came across this lip liner while exploring beauty section at Amazon.in. After reading some positive feedback from fellow bloggers, I decided to give it a try. Maybelline has already increased the price of Color Sensation lip liners from Rs.200 to Rs.250.
Packaging : The lip liner comes in a regular pencil form with transparent cap. The body of the pencil is same as the color of the lip liner and everything is written in silver letters on the pencil.
My Experience : Velvet Beige is a pretty neutral shade which contains shimmer in it. Although the shimmer is not easily visible. It has a smooth texture and glides smoothly onto my lips without tugging. It has a typical lipstick kind of fragrance which I don’t like, but it goes off after application. I usually wear this lip liner alone on daily basis or sometimes with gloss on top of it. Though it has smooth texture but it still makes lips dry after an hour or two. Make sure to exfoliate & moisturize lips before applying this lip liner for smooth application. You can wear your favorite lipstick on top this lip liner and it will increase the wearing time of the lipstick. If you have dry lips then it might settle in fine lines and for smooth application make sure your lips are well moisturized.
I am quite liking this lip liner for its lovely color and it is also not very expensive, but I would have loved it more if it comes in a retractable packaging. In case of pencil packaging you need to sharpen it after 2-3 usages and sharpening always leads to wastage of product. I wish they should have provided sharpener with this pencil.
