WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT

So Maybelline launched for Winter 2013 the new color balm by Color Sensational, which is suppose to be a cross between a lip stick, lipgloss and a lip balm. The idea of fusing lip balm, lipstick and lipgloss into one thing is actually not something that’s new. Japanese brands like Melliesh have already came up with something like this a while back and Almay also recently introduced the Almay Color + Careā„¢ liquid lip balm, which is pretty much the same concept.


The applicator is very unique. It’s a doe-foot applicator but it has a pointed tip which allows precise and even application. The gloss itself, I think it’s excellent. It’s very light and not sticky at all, which is not like any gloss that I have tried. It goes on very smooth and makes my lip super moisturized. However, it does have a very odd taste to it, which I’m not a huge fan of. The color pay off I think it’s decent but not the best. I would definitely say that the Melliesh glosses have a much better color pay off, which is why I don’t love this gloss but only like it.

 


The color is very beautiful and perfect for the fall season. It’s great for those who wants to rock a darker lip without having to go as dark as a lipstick since it’s not completely opaque. I personally love this color and it’s been what I’ve been wearing in the past week or so. The product lasts for around 2-3 hours before you’ll need to reapply. The shine wears out first but it doesn’t separate or leave some patches on your lips.

 


Overall, I think it’s a good gloss/balm but I wouldn’t go for it if you’re looking for something with a better color payoff. You can find this product at your local drugstore, Walmart and Target. The price ranges from $8.99-$13.99.
