The shade is “Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Alert POW 4 “.
Well talking bout the shade, This is a poppy pink with neon touch to it.It is super bright and gives glossy finish on lips.Its the pretty bright and bold shade to carry in summers.It brightens up face instantly.It is very moisturizing and glides on lips without any efforts.It will suit fair to medium skin stones.
The lipsticks are packed in a translucent hot pink color which closes with a click sound.The size is very easy to carry and travel friendly.Due to sturdy packing one is assured that it will not open in bag.I really liked the packaging of this series.
Pigmentation and Texture:
This shade is well pigmented and smooth.Its just amazing .One swipe is enough for a perfect look.When applied they glide smoothly like butter on lips without much effort.It covers pigmented lips very well.
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
This shade actually bleeds so one needs to first outline the lips with a liner and then fill lipstick using brush.I have always applied it directly though.
The texture is super creamy it gives very moisturizing effect on lips.It is not matte.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is around 2-3 hours especially during summers.It does transfers which can be a turnoff for some.However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.It starts wearing off from sides of the lips and leaves a nice red tint on lips. It can be easily removed using make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:)
This is a very different shade all together .Since it has neon touch it needs courage to carry such bold shades easily..I must say it actually took me a while to get accustom with this electrifying color : ) ..It instantly adds such a pretty glow on face which attracts everyone.This shade is neither very loud but looks really pretty!!.
People who keep experimenting with new shades must definitely .try this shade.And most importantly its awesome deal for the price you pay.
This shade is perfect for party wear or girls get together 🙂 ..Apart from its transfer and bleeding issues since it does not settle as matte I don’t find any other downside to this shade.
I would recommend it to people looking for some pooppy shades for party wear .Otherwise is not for every skin tone.
And No I would Not repurchase it .
