It's not a lip balm, no not even your average lip gloss. It's Maybelline Lip Polish. Maybelline's setting a standard with this cushiony lip product that slides on like a dream, feels as smooth as acrylic, but as soft as gel. Oh I know what to call this product now-a Lip Cushion!
MAYBELLINE LIP POLISH IN DETAIL
Lip Polish is Maybelline's newest lip product. It's said to be a fusion of gloss, balm, lipstick, and treatment with a serum- like shine. It claims to soothe and moisturize lips all day, and comes in shimmer, patent, and sheer finishes.
It's very cheap, but the packaging is nowhere near like that-not even an inch. The product comes in a pocket- sized acrylic tube with a lipstick- shaped insert and it added that cute effect to it. The spade shaped wand fits my lips just fine and the tapered tip allows me to line my lips precisely.
You shouldn't miss this luscious product from Maybelline. I'm swatching 8 colors for you after the jump!
Just to give you a grasp of what it really is, it's a lipstick-lip balm-lip treatment-lip gloss hybrid with a super cushiony feel. It's as pigmented as lipstick, shinier but more lightweight than gloss, more emollient than lip balm, and has a shine that's as brilliant as oil (but it doesn't feel anything like it!). Pigmentation ranges from light to heavy depending on the formula and color, and it is unscented too. It gives my lips this pillow- like, volumizing effect, albeit it's a little runny and may bleed when you use more than two layers. What I love about it is it doesn't feel sticky at all-not even a wee bit! It actually feels like 'soft glass' to me!
MAYBELLINE LIP POLISH IN ACTION
- A bright red shade
Pop 6 is a refreshing that has this young, vibrant feel to it. It's the kind of red that you won't shy away from!
- a fresh baby pink shade.
This shade has the look and sheerness of a lip tint (but more pigmented), perfect for those lazy and casual days or to cap off a petal- fresh look.
- a lilac pink shade with silver micro shimmer.
Cool, but surprisingly wearable for warm skin tones, Glam 5 is the perfect hue for any princess-y makeup look!
- Sheer red with silver micro shimmer
It's as sheer as Pop 5, but the shimmers added that vavavoom factor to it, thus it can be worn even during night time.
- A rose-beige shade
It's not really glamorous, but rather simple and natural. I find that this shade yields the most uniform coverage of all the Lip Polish shades I own.
- A neutral nude beige
I feel like breaking into a Beyoncé- themed dance whenever I have this shade on. Glam 16 is sooo celebrity- worthy!
- A berry-plum shade
The violet undertone of this shade makes it so apt for warm- skinned ladies. It's such a unique and gorgeous color, but downright wearable. It's the perfect shade to usher in the colder season!
- a soft midtone Coral.
Lip Polish is indeed the right name to call these products because if you've observed in the swatches, they have a shine that reminds you of a top coat for nails. They're not that long lasting though due to their runny texture, but I love the way they feel and sit on my lips. It's very affordable so I suggest you give it a try-word of caution though, you'll be hooked on it softness! :)
