Today I am going to review Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Gleaming Grenadine.
Price: 350/- for 5ml
Company Claims: More vibrant color from pure liquid pigments. Cleaner shine from our 100% wax-free gloss.Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.
Now, gloss goes gutsy in 10 arresting shades.
Available in 10 shades from subtle to eye-popping colors. They are Almond Crush, Electric Shock, Plum Luster, Iced Chocolate, Glisten up pink, Captivating Coral, Mirrored Mauve, One Shine Day, Gleaming Grenadine and Luminous Latte.
I had always loved all Maybelline products as they are really good in quality and budget friendly. And pigmented glosses have always been my favourite as I have pigmented lips.
Well, Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Gleaming Grenadine comes in a rectangular packaging which is transparent. Packages which are transparent usually give a clear picture of the quantity left and this particular bottle looks very luxurious, the silver cap gives an aristocratic look, which I personally adore it!! The packaging is quite sturdy and the cap has a twist lock to it, which makes it travel friendly. The name of the shade is at the bottom of the bottle. It has a slanted sponge tip applicator, a bit different from the regular ones. I liked it, but the normal ones are quite easy to apply. The difficult part of this sponge tip applicator is while putting it back into the bottle, you need to be careful while putting it back.
Gleaming Grenadine is a lovely red colored gloss which seems close to Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gloss – Cranberry Cocktail. But this one is darker red with pink undertones. It has got decent pigmentation, though it doesn’t totally cover your pigmented lips, it does give a very good coverage. It is a bright red color, which instantly brightens up your face. The texture of the lip gloss is thicker and creamier than the normal Colorsensational glosses. It is very hydrating and moisturizing on your lips, at the same time it’s completely non-sticky and doesn’t feel heavy at all! Though it has slightly thicker consistency, it didn’t feel uncomfortable at all, it is very light – you wouldn’t feel that you had applied anything on your lips!!!!
1 swipe gives you a nice sheer red color to your lips and for normal coverage you can go for 2-3 swipes. It doesn’t bleed or feather, it doesn’t even get patchy or uneven on your lips after fading. It does add a bit of plumping effect to your lips. The best aprt is that, you can apply it on your bare lips and/or even over your lipstick – it looks amazing either way. You can observe that it has got very tiny shimmer particles, but it doesn’t show up when you apply it on your lips.
It stays put upto 3.5-4hrs and after meals, it gets wiped out with a light pink stain on your lips. Even when you apply and wipe it off, you’d observe that a slight pinkish red stain is left behind on your lips. It is the best red for the ones who are scared to try red color and yet are very fond of it! It is too pretty and would suit everyone!!

Cons of the Product:

Overall Verdict: Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss in Gleaming Grenadine is a very good gloss with a very good creamy texture and the formula is quite thick and hydrating. But it is completely non-sticky and feels very light and comfortable on your lips. The shade Gleaming Grenadine is a beautiful red color with pink undertones which tends to leave a soft pinkish stain red stain on your lips after fading. This color instantly brightens up your face and stays put for upto 3.5-4hrs. I’d recommend this to everyone, even the ones who are scared to try red!! Trust me, you’d love it!!!
