Maybelline Lip Polish (Glam 13)

Hey all…

I just floated my new blog yesterday – A Crappy Mom! Please do support! 🙂

Coming back to the topic… Maybelline Lip Polishes have been the latest fad in the beauty market in the past couple of months since their launch here.

These are known as Color Elixir Lip Balms out there in the US. Kudos to Maybelline to have launched these in India in a very short time after launching them in the USA! 🙂

I swatched almost all the shades & tried a handful of shades on my lips before I settled on this one – Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 13.

Price: INR 450


These lip polishes come in a transparent cuboid with a silver cap. The lip polish is housed in the shape of a bullet which is so very thoughtful & catchy!

The shade number is mentioned at the bottom of the tube.

The way I see it:

At the counter, I didn’t like some of the lip polishes texture or shade or the shimmer in them. When I had almost decided that these ‘grapes are sour’, my Eureka moment happened!

It was love at first sight for me when it comes to this shade – Glam 13!

Its such a lovely neutral shade that would suit all skin tones prettily.

Though everybody seems to be calling it a perfect nude gloss – its come out as a pretty coral pink on me with a hint of brown that’s perfect for everyday wear!

The pigmentation is brilliant. One coat would do for non-pigmented lips.

There is minute shimmer present in it, but it doesn’t show up when on the lips.

In fact, it adds to the dimension of the gloss & makes it look more prettier. First time ever, that I liked some shimmer on my lips!

It ain’t sticky unlike most other lip glosses and is true to its description – a lip balm + lip gloss + liquid lipstick in one!

Don’t expect this to hydrate your lips.. but it won’t dry your lips or highlight the fine lines on them.

You can see tiny golden shimmers in the swatch below.

The applicator is good too.. and helps in applying a even coat on the lips & its corners.

I would suggest waiting for atleast 30 seconds before going for a second coat.

I haven’t witnessed any bleeding with this product, but yes it might stain your teeth a little while applying.

The staying power is decent.. for about 3 hrs. on me.. that too without any food in between. With drinks, it fades off to leave a soft pink tint, whereas vanishes off totally with food.

Here is how it looks on me…

At 450 bucks, its a very good deal & I am totally loving everything about this product…

Overall, Maybelline has delivered a big hit with this product, that gives tough competition to another same time release – Loreal Caresse Shine Lip Stains!
