The Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gradation Mauve1 comes in a double-ended twist-up crayon form. One end has the lip product in it and the other one has a sponge applicator to give help blur and create a gradation effect. I personally am not a big fan of the blurred-effect and I don’t think it will work for anyone with pigmentation on their lips, unless you prep your lips first with a foundation/concealer.
The crayon comes out easily by a twist-up mechanism. It retracts fully inside too which prevents it from accidentally damaging the tip. The tip is slightly pointed which helps you to outline the lips neatly. The product is very pigmented and 1-2 swipes are all you will need. The shade Mauve1 is a brownish mauve shade. It looks pretty dark on me but may turn out to be a MLBB shade on deeper skintones. The shade I would say is an ideal winter shade!

The product glides onto the lips very smoothly. Think NYX’s round lipsticks, if you’ve ever tried one. However the similarity ends there. Because within a minute or so, this lipstick sets into a matte finish. The texture is pretty light-weight, as if you aren’t wearing anything on your lips. However, as the time goes on, it starts to feel quite drying on the lips. So I would suggest you to prep your lips with a hydrating lip balm before you wear one of these.
As for its staying power, it stays for about 3-4 hours on me with light snacks and drinks in between. After that, it starts to gradually fade away. The shade does not feather or bleed and essentially looks more like a lip stain rather than a lipstick.
The Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gradation Mauve1 is a matte lip crayon which looks like a dark brownish mauve on light to medium complexions but can a MLBB shade for the deeper ones. It sets to a completely matte finish, is very light-weight, has an average wear-time, does not bleed or feather and is highly pigmented. The only con for this product that I think of is that it can be very drying on the lips. It is a good drugstore option for matte-lip lovers. Recommended!

This shade is looking gorgeous on you Komal 🙂 I think I’m gonna get this shade too 😛
The smudger I think is for no use, smudged up lipstick looks as if I have licked it off or eaten it. But all in all, this color is the one which is really wearable for daily use.
Gorgeous shade! It transfers easily and is bit of drying which I don’t like but overall it’s great!
love this shade on you :)you look so pretty
