I choose MAUVE1 shade which is a nude/neutral shade. I was actually supposed to pick a red shade too but there were no red shades in stock at the store, so i had to pick only one shade.
The packaging of the Maybelline Lip Gradation comes in a color coded retractable pen with a smudger sponge tip at the other end. The packaging is almost similar to the Maybelline ColorBlur lipsticks. Talking about the texture, it has a creamy/velvety formula. It is medium-highly pigmented. It gives a matte finished look to the lips and is buildable accordingly. The only con for this Lip gradation is that the less quantity we get for the price.
PROS OF Maybelline Lip Gradation:
- Affordably priced at INR500
- Very smooth and creamy/velvety texture
- Doesn’t dry out the lips
- Long lasting and Easy to use
- Highly pigmented
- It comes with a smudger sponge.
CONS OF Maybelline Lip Gradation:
- Lesser quantity
- Totally transferable
- Not much use of the smudger, unless we are too creative to do an ombre lip look.
