|Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Gradation Review & Swatches|
Maybelline India has been on a roll. They have added some amazing products to their portfolio - the boldest kajal, the Fit Me range and the best of the lot is the Color Sensation Lip Gradation pencil.
So what exactly are these Lip Gradation pencils ?
They are lip colour pencils with a cushion blender tool at the other end. Sounds interesting ? With this product, Maybelline introduced Korean ombre lips trend in India. Simply put, ombre lips are gradient lips, wherein you apply colour in the center of your lips and lightly blend it to the outer corners of your lips, giving it a look as if you just sucked a popsicle. :P

I tried out Maybelline's Lip gradation pencil in the shade Red 2 and I am quite impressed with the product. The product comes in a nice lip crayon like plastic packaging with the blender on the other end, both protected by plastic caps. The outer body of the pencils gives away the shade of the lipstick. Hence, it is easy to pick out the shades when placed in a stack of lipsticks.
Red 2 is beautiful tomato red colour but you can easily adjust the intensity of the colour with the use of blender. The texture is matte, yet it does not have a drying effect on your lips.This is another reason why I liked the product. In one swipe, the pigmentation is good and gives a nice colour.

The lip pencils come in 8 bright shades which are not really unique but will work well for your daily makeup routine. Priced at Rs.500, they are a good deal. :)
What I liked about the product ?
- Nice matte texture, which does not dry your lips
- Great pigmentation with just one stroke
- Gives you an easy acess to the international ombre lips trend
- The cushion blender does its work quite well
- I am quite impressed by the staying power of the lip pencils. Though initially the colour gets transferred, it lingers on till for a good 6-7 hours
What could have been better ?
I feel the quantity offered by the product is a little less.
Overall, I loved the product and would be purchasing the pink shade very soon :)
