Maybelline Pink Alert by Colorsensational Review and Swatch (POW3)

MAYBELLINE PINK ALERT BY COLORSENSATIONAL REVIEW AND SWATCH (POW3)

HI everyone !!
                         I am so excited to review this Maybelline pink alert which is their latest lipstick launch under Colorsensational range . I bought it online from jabong.com . The color i am going to review is POW 3 . They have launched four shades this time under name PINK ALERT and numbered POW1 , POW2 , POW3 and POW4.  As the name already suggests all fall under the pink color category  .

 Everytime Maybelline is offering amazing stuff which is irresistible due to its price and quality and this time too they steal the show . I bought POW 3 as i wanted a pop pink shade which was missing in my vanity . I do have a very neon pink shade that i bought back last year on my Bangkok trip but it settles in fine lines and dries out my lips . Although the color is too tempting and cool but still i needed something that i did not have to work upon and does not turn my lips flaked . So , my search ended here finally :) and now lets check out MAYBELLINE PINK ALERT (POW3) review in detail :
                                                         

PRICE AND PACKAGING : you will have to pay rs.375 for this lip color but i just paid rs.280 for it as i bought it online under their 25% off scheme . I generally take full advantage of such online deals if i have to buy some shoes or clothes under their discount scheme i pick up the at least one cosmetic product and get it on discounted price which you will never avail in market :) at that time .

Quantity that you get is 3.9gm and expiry period is 36 months .
                                                               
   
Packaging is quite similar to the other Colorsensational lipsticks from Maybelline that fall under same price category . Found it same just like Bold Matte by Colorsensational that i reviewed last time on blog (HERE ) Being square structured at bottom it really stands well on your makeup shelf . Packaging is quite convenient and cute . I really liked it :)
                                                         

WHAT IT CLAIMS :

  • Amp up your lips in the hottest pink
  • Passionate pink color only from  our vivid color pigments
  • creamier feel only from our nourishing honey nectar.
                                                               

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT : Loved the way it moisturizes your lips and the candy pink color you get effortlessly from just one single swipe . Its definitely a pop candy pink color that will stand out on your lips . Pop colors are very much in these days so you can wear it without thinking twice .

 Be sure to keep the other face makeup subtle . Don't overdo it on your lips otherwise the color will loose its grace . Its a shade that falls in between matte and gloss category . A non bleeding color with right amount of gloss and shine but without any shimmer. It does not dry out lips and comes off easily when you want to remove it at the end of the day.

Quite hydrating , creamy and with a staying power of three to four hours its a color that's must in your vanity if you are a sucker for pink lip shades . It does not have any taste or fragrance which is another plus point of this product .

 When i tried this color for first time yesterday i was not sure that would it  look good as it's kind of too pop and bold neon pink to carry off  . But when husband came back home from office he at once noticed it and complimented for the shade ( and he's too choosy i must say and i was now sure that its not going to look out of box shade for sure :) !!   .
