Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color in Buff Review

Why on earth every colour looks so pink on my lips??grrrrr....I love pink..but every single shade? Anyway, still I buy tons of lipsticks and write reviews on them.

Today I am going to review a very popular shade from Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lip Color and that is Buff.

Since this range of lipstick is extremely popular I will not take more time in describing the packaging.

Rs. 250 seems like a very decent price.The texture of the lipstick is extremely creamy and it really moisturizes the lips. This moisturizing effect stays for a long time even after sipping coffee or taking food.

The colour is very pretty coral pink, a little lenient towards brown. This is a shade that can complement any complexion. The colour looks equally attractive at day and night. You can make it as a statement makeup or pair with smoky eyes too. This versatile colour can immediately perk up the face. The only negative trait is the bleeding tendency.

  • Very moisturising
  • Available in 16 shades
  • Pigmented
  • Stays for a long time
  • Suitable for all complexions
  • Affordable
  • SPF 15
  • Bleeding tendency

Rating: 4.5/5

The Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme  Lip Color in Buff is really a shade every girl should own. It looks adorable and makes you look pretty every time you wear it.

Play with Colours on Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is most of the time associated with red-the colour of love and passion. This time why not incorporate some new shades to your makeup and break this rule? How about some colour combination when pairing up 2 or more colours on your face can make you look equally sexy and romantic for that much awaited date.

Light Brown & Berry Pink:

How about looking fresh and soft on the day? A subtle hue of soft tones on your face will actually give you a real poetic look. Try by applying a soft brown liner and a dash of mascara. Keeping your face naturally glowing, by applying some tinted moisturizer focus on the lips by patting on some berry pink stain with your finger. This will give a petal stained lip look and keep it soft and sexy.

Suggested products: 

Street Wear Eye Liner Brown 03

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Berry Pink

Dark Chocolate & Nude:

Sounds scary? But believe me ladies, this combination can make you  look very bright if done properly. Start with a soft matte face and apply a very dark brown liner or kajal on your lids. Apply a nude gloss on your lips to make it look sexy and bright. If you use a matte lippie, the outcome can be a bit harsh.

Suggested Products:

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Shimmer Ink

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss - Nude Illusion

Shimmery Gray & Beige/Cream: 

Try to apply some bronzer to contour your face first. Then apply some shimmer gray shadow on the lids. A smoldering smoky eyes look will complement a cream or beige matte lipstick. You will definitely look gorgeous.

Suggested Products:


Maybelline COLOR TATTOO EYE SHADOW in Audacious Asphalt

Navy Blue & Peach:

This is an absolutely gorgeous and sleek combination. Keeping the face matte, try to apply a navy blue shadow on the lids. Apply a creamy textured peach lipstick on your lips. Your loved one is seriously going to love it.

Suggested products:

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Monos Eyeshadow in All Night Blue

Lakme Absolute Creme Lipstick in Cosmo Pasion

Mauve & Rose:

This is a combination very rare and unique. Try a creamy mauve or plum shadow on your eyes. Apply a rose pink lipstick or gloss for a cute effect on your lips.

Suggested products:

Maybelline Super Stay 14 hour Lipstick ETERNAL ROSE

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk

White & Whisper Pink:

This look is so angelic. Try using a very subtle pink lippie or even lip balm and apply a bit of white on your eyes. Some white shadow or white kohl will do the trick.

Suggested Products:

Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Lolita

Lakme Eyeconic White Kajal

Carbon Black & Crimson:

This is the boldest look and very suitable for a night out. Apply a Carbon Black Shadow on your lids and paint your pouts crimson with a matte lipstick.

Suggested products:

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow Eternal Black

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Designer
