{ Review + Swatches } Maybelline : Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor

Whilst on my most recent vacay to Jakarta, I decided to go to the drugstore to see what makeup brands and products they had in store. I ended up purchasing quite a few items from the Maybelline stand, some of the products being these lipsticks which were super super inexpensive!! Each lipstick costed around $4AUD which is unheard of here in Australia! Maybelline lipsticks in Australia retails for around $15-17 :(

I've actually never even seen this particular line of 'Moisture Extreme' Maybelline lipsticks in Australia nor have I really heard anyone talk about it online. I'm guessing this may be an Asia exclusive line or just not very popular. If you guys have these lipsticks in your country, please let me know and thanks in advance : ) Unfortunately there weren't a great variety of shades to choose from or any that were my absolute favourites such as my nudes and pinky-mauves although I did pick up a couple to try out.

 L-R: Summer Sunset, Loving Red, Bonbon Pink, Angel Rose

Like the name suggests, these lipsticks are extremely moisturising and apply like a dream. My favourites would have to be the reds, Summer Sunset and Loving Red. Bright pinks and corals don't really suit me and these seem to appear alot brighter and darker on my lips, plus I don't like shimmers in my lipsticks hence Bonbon Pink was a super fail for me.

Shade descriptions:
  • Summer Sunset: Dark burgundy red (cream) - wore this in one of my Instagram (laurasooji) pictures!
  • Loving Red: Cherry red, brighter than Summer Sunset (cream)
  • Bonbon Pink: Bright medium pink (shimmer)
  • Angel Rose: Pink-coral (cream) 
L-R: Summer Sunset, Loving Red, Bonbon Pink, Angel Rose

Pros:
  • Very inexpensive and affordable 
  • Moisturising and applies smoothly 
  • Pigmented colours
  • Long lasting, especially the reds (I haven't worn Bonbon Pink or Angel Rose out yet so I'm not sure about its longevity. Reds are generally long lasting anyway)  
  • Packaging looks sleek with a matte finish

Cons:
  • Not a great variety of shades to choose from
  • Not widely available (in my experience anyway)

So have you guys ever come across this line of Maybelline lipsticks in stores and if so whereabouts?

  6. The colors are so nice! They all have that mix of warm and cool, I love that.
    And I also live in a country where beauty products tend to be ridiculously overpriced, so I feel ya'! And I know how great it is to find them for cheap elsewhere. xx
