A surprise launch of Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paints at Health&Glow! It is not an official launch by Maybelline in Indian market. So, these lip paints are available exclusively only at Health&Glow. They were launched by Maybelline in Asian market early this month, and probably Health&Glow has brought them down from there. Whatever may be, these little tubes were eyed by me for so long, and finally I have them on my hands. These lip paints are available in 8 shades, and I picked the shade “07 Vanity Violet.”
Price: INR 450 for 5 ml [BUY HERE: Maybelline New York Color Jolt Matte Lip Paint, 07 Vanity Violet, 5g]
Shelf Life: 36 months
Product Description: Dress up your pout with three times more pigment in each drop! Creamy, lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear, Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint is a kaleidoscope of 8 intense shades that come in matte finish.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint 07 Vanity Violet
Packaging: This lip paint comes in a small, color-coded squeeze tube with a black screw-up cap. It has an in-built flocked-tip applicator. Squeeze the tube, the pigment comes out, apply the flocked-tip precision applicator directly to the lips—viola, it is that simple! Although all the necessary information, including the ingredients list, is mentioned on the wraparound tear sheet, the manufactured date is mentioned on the tube itself. This teeny-tiny tube is all likely to get lost in your handbag 😉
Texture: The texture of this lip paint is thick, creamy, and lightweight. It applies smoothly, evenly, and flawlessly with the slanted sponge applicator. It has a slight shine, which wears away after about three hours. It gives a satiny matte finish. The color is intensely pigmented, and a small amount is quite enough to cover up the lips. It does not feel heavy or patchy at any point of time. It has a pleasant fruity fragrance to it.
Shade: “07 Vanity Violet” is a bright, blue-based, cool-toned pink and not a neon pink. It just adds a bright pop of color and can lift any look. There is no much of a choice in the color range. It consists of only baby pinks, reds, and a nude, which will not suit Indian skin tones. It is a big let-down as the shades cater to Asian market and not Indians.
01 Don’t Pink With Me is a pale baby pink.
02 Bittersweet Mandarin is a soft coraly orange.
03 Baby Mauve is a mauvy pink.
04 Show Off Nude is a beige.
05 You Red-Me is a brownish red.
06 Vamp Red is a deep red.
07 Vanity Violet is a blue-based/purply pink.
08 Flaunting My Pink is a rosy pink.
Performance: This lip paint is awesomely formulated. It is thick as well as lightweight. It is creamy as well as matte. It applies perfect and looks flawless. It does not feather nor bleed, making your lips look perfect all day long. It comes in the most handy, easy-to-apply packaging. The flocked-tip applicator is very comfortable to apply the lip color even on the contours of the lips. As its name, it is intensely pigmented. Its intense pigments give exceptional color pay-off. It gives a single-coat opaque coverage. The color gets bolder when layered on. Building up the color is very easy as it does not get sticky, tacky, or flaky. The color does not accentuate any dry patches or fine lines. Rather it remains smooth and weightless. It has a creamy and lightly hydrating consistency, which gives non-drying and comfortable feel. It does transfer minimally. This lip paint gives a satiny matte finish. It leaves behind a beautiful stain on the lips. However, it is a little hard to remove. Although it needs reapplication after eating anything slightly greasy, it has a great lasting power of about 8 hours before fading. In case the tip gets messy, it can be wiped off. Overall, this lip paint is extremely creamy and comfortable on the lips.
