Today I’m going to review a lip gloss – Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lipgloss in shade “Chocolate Glitters”.
I used to have “Naked Brown” shade from the Watershine range before and this is my second lipgloss from Maybelline.
Price: INR 210 for 3 ml. (I got this free with few Maybelline purchases of mine at the counter)
It comes in a sturdy transparent plastic container so that the lipgloss shade shows up.
The cover is of metallic silver shade and comes with an applicator brush.
The packaging is sturdy, made of good quality and attractive too.. Thumbs up!
What the product claims:
> Play around with our creative colors and gorgeous finishes.
> Get your shine on! Our glosses put your lips in the spotlight.
> It Glosses to give you the voluptuous dazzling lips you always wanted. Hi-shine liquid format for perfectly supple brilliantly shiny lips.
The way I see it:
The packaging is quite impressive and the second thing you will love about this lipgloss is its applicator brush.
It comes with a sponge brush which is suitably sized for smooth application all over the lips.
The name is apt for the shade – its chocolaty – which would go well with all Indian tones.
The texture is great and applies evenly over the lips. It does not settle into fine lines after sometime and the staying power is decent for 3-4 hrs.
It does dry up a little say after 2 hrs. leaving the glitters behind. The glitter is also very fine that one doesn’t feel them gritty, though it might look odd to have glitters shining around when seen upclose.
It is non-sticky too which I personally prefer a lot!
Overall, its a decent lipgloss that comes in a range of shades and suitable for daily wear.
Two swipes can hide pigmented lips better.
