When I heard about the “Liquid Color Balm” by Color Sensational from Maybelline, I was really eager to try it out because, hey, just apply and go in one simple step. No more layering of lip balm, then lipstick, then lip gloss…just one swipe of of Maybelline’s new LIP POLISH……
Maybelline LipPolish Glam 7 Review and Swatches
Here’s what Maybelline has to say about it’s new Lip Polish:
A TRIO of CONCENTRATES:
1. Potent Color Extracts: Pure: saturated color pigments that provide deep, intense color like a lipstick.
2. Concentrated Liquid Balm: Moisturising Conditioning Liquid Balm gets the lips ready for intensely rich color. Gives a soft, cushiony feel and care to the lips.
3. Glossy Shine Serum: Built in glossy top-coat that makes lips look fuller and more luscious.
Specially designed leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick and precise.
to see something that reminded me of my YSL Glossy Stains Corail Aquatique and Corail Fauve (click on names to read reviews); the applicator…
Colour and Texture
As you have already seen from the transparent packaging, Glam 7 is a beautiful peachy-pink MLBB (my lips but better) colour that is perfect for office wear, PTA meeting-wear, coffee-with-friends wear, casual-brunch-wear, day-at-the beach-wear, shopping-at-the-mall wear….you get the gist? It is a perfect “wear-anwhere” colour. Also “wear-with-anything” since it is a neutral colour. It would look fabulous on light to medium skin tones but I feel it would wash out anyone with a deeper skintone than NC42. While it looks quite peachy in the tube, on my pigmented lips, the colour appears more pink.
The gloss is quite lightweight and has decent pigmentation. It does moisturise the lips and even after it wears off, my lips don’t feel dry at all. It is slightly sticky, has a decent wear time, lasting on me for about 3 hours and didn’t have a problem with me drinking water and having grapes. After that, the shine faded considerably though there was still a bit of muted colour remaining on my lips. In fact, in terms of shine and the way it looks on the lips, I would compare the Lip Polish with the Bourjois Shine Edition lipstick.
