Makeup is an art. It is loved by all and in a generation like ours, we are all obsessed by it… I myself am so obsessed and am here to review my first product…..
A lipstick, it is everyone’s favorite from little kids to young adults. My favorite lipstick being Maybelline Lip Gradation comes first on my reviews list. It comes in 8 different shades. This was launched when OMBRE LIPS were not common in India and was probably launched to spread that trend here.
PACKAGING: Its packaging is like a dual-ended pen having a twist-up color stick at one end and a cushion blender tool at the other end. The cushion blender is used to create the ombre look.
TEXTURE: Its texture is “creamy, very smooth, non-sticky and also not- greasy”. It is highly pigmented and is also very light in weight. It has absolutely no shine and has a powdered finish. It may be drying for some people, but if you moisturize your lips prior to application then you are good to go. It may appear dry on lips due to its texture as it is created in such a way that the color is blendable to give a graded look. It does transfer a bit but not crazily like other creamy lipsticks. The color “does not bleed” and it “stays for about 6 hours” even with eating and drinking. After which it will leave a light tint to your lips which can be easily removed with any cleanser.
APPLICATION: You can apply this in 3 different ways.
1) You can apply it normally as a lipstick.
2) Apply color to the center of your lips and using the cushion blender extend the color to the outer edges till the contours of your lips.
3) You can also apply it as a lip liner.
It is available in the local stores and also on the online shopping websites such as Amazon, Nykaa etc. at huge discounts.
3)Gorgeous matte finish
4)Perfect nude color for Indian skin tones
6)Good staying capacity
7) Light in weight
8) Smooth on lips.
1)Graded look does not show on pigmented lips
2) Less quantity
3) Limited range of colors

It's long lasting and crease less, doesn't transfer to surfaces or bleed. It stays matte but hydrated. I'd recommend this to anyone who's looking for a daily wear lip product. It's so ratri apply The texture of the lipstick is extremely smooth and buttery. I don’t feel any tugging or pulling on my lips when I apply this lipstick. It’s one of the most comfortable matte lipstick that maybelline has come up with.The packaging is sleek and easy to carry. The caps fit tight so there is no worry of your purse being messed up.The packaging is sleek and easy to carry. The caps fit tight so there is no worry of your purse being messed up.•Mauve1

This is a product that I bought completely spur of the moment and fell in love with. I bought the shade pink 1.
It's super pigmented and very easy to apply. Its matte but not drying. It has lasted me all day through meals, presentation, train journeys in Mumbai locals and dates. It works well for a morning as well as evening look. The shades are bright and vivid and look good on Indian skin tones. Only problem is that it is very transferable. Be careful with your clothes.
It's well worth the money. I've been recommending it to everyone I know . It brightens up your whole look.
Excellent product and I will definitely purchase again.

The lip gradation lipstick is quite pigmented just one swipe on your lips and you are good to go. It is very creamy and glides on very easily on your lips. It is a matte lipstick so it has no shine and no glitters whatsoever. It does not settle in the lip lines. It feels very soft and very comfortable on the lips. Maybelline colorsensational lip gradation Doesn’t feel heavy on the lips and it is not very drying. The lasting power of colorsensational lip gradation is also pretty good. It will last you a good 3-4 hours with light meals. It has no fragrance.
It gives a very natural colour to the lips. It is very easy to use, just one swipe you do get amazing result on the lips. But if you find it very bold that’s when the smudger comes in use, it absorbs the excess product on your lips and leaves behind a stain. I personally didn’t like the smudger much it didn’t do nothing that a tissue won’t do, so I don’t see myself using the smudger much, again I feel cleaning it would be an issue.
SHADES AVAILABLE: They have 8 matte shades for you to choose from. The options are: red 1, red 2, pink 1, pink 2, mauve 1, coral 1, fuchsia 1, orange 1
PROS OF Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation:
* Great quality, very affordably priced at Rs.500
* Very smooth and creamy texture doesn’t dry out the lips
* Travel friendly
* Long lasting
* Easy to use
* Multiple use can be used as a lip liner as well
* Strong pigmentation
* It comes off with ease when you are taking it off
CONS OF Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation:
* Has the same colours as Maybelline’s other ranges
* Not much use of the smudger
Price in India: Rs.500 each
CONCLUSION: I do like this lip gradation. You can try it if you are looking for a lip product with a smudger. Would I repurchase it again? Maybe not! Would I recommend it to others, definitely! You can create some new and fun looks with it.

I have tried Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation in the shade Fuchsia-1. It is a pretty pink which will suit almost all Indian skin tones. The color is on the brighter side and is great for party looks. The lipcolor gives a perfect matte finish and has a great staying power. The lipcolor glides on easily on the lips and it is also great for outlining your lipsas well. The lipcolor has a sponge applicator on the other side to create an ombre lip effect. Both the sides of the pen have caps and this sleek product is quite easy to carry aroud.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation in pink 1 shade is a what I called a chatak pink. it is a day wear lip shade.
this lipstick stays for quite a long time, but it starts to bleed and it does not entertain any meal, it starts to get fade after your meal.
PRICE: Rs. 500
this shade goes perfect with ethnic looks.
talking about the packaging, the lipstick is color coded and is retractable. also it comes with a sponge tip at the end which is used to make an ombre lip look.
I would definitely recommend this shade to you people.
