Recently Maybelline launched the Pink Alert lipsticks from their Colorsensational range. The Pink Alert range consists of four pretty shades of Pink, POW1, POW2, POW3 and POW4. Among all these, I thought the shade POW2 will suit me the best. I was a little late to buy it, but better late than never!
Packaging: Maybelline Pink Alertlipsticks come in cute pink packaging wrapped in a plastic wrap that proclaims the words “Pink Alert”. When the plastic wrap is removed from the product, it leaves the packaging with no label or description on it. The packaging is the usual Colorsensational packaging that Maybelline is manufacturing for years. Just the color is different.
Shade: POW 2 from Pink Alert range has a distinctive bright pink shade with a blue undertone. This shade is suitable for almost all Indian skin tones. I have a wheatish skin tone and it brightens up my whole face instantly.
Product- Texture, Pigmentation & Staying Power: The product is very creamy itself. You don’t need to apply a lip balm before applying the lipstick. The creaminess results in a smooth application. Maybelline claims it to be the honey nectar which provides the creaminess in the lipstick. This product gives your lips a great even coverage. Now you don’t have to worry about concealing your pigmented lips before applying a pink lippie. The only con I have found out is that it somehow accentuates the darkness around the lips if you have any. POW 2 stays on your lips for a good 4-5 hours and leaves a pretty hint of pink behind even after you wipe it off. I went for a movie applying it followed by a lunch and after all these my lips weren’t bare at all.
Nice bright shade to jazz up your summer look.
Decent staying power.
Transfers a bit.
Slightly accentuates the pigmentation/darkness around the lips.
