Maybelline New York is one of the most sought-after beauty and makeup brands. The brand comes with unique products to help us look gorgeous in every way possible. And now, it has come with an impressive range of lipsticks called ‘Jewels’. Today, I’ll be reviewing Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick (Pink Tourmaline), one of the jewels from its jewel bouquet. So, stay tuned to read more about it.

- 630 Rubylicious

There is no ingredient list present on the packaging of the lipstick, which is utterly disappointing. Prominent names like “Maybelline New York’ should look into this matter for attaining utmost customer satisfaction.
The lipstick comes in the form of a bullet with rectangular packaging. It has a cover that looks very much like a hologram, and you cannot help but keep staring at it. The color of the cap is similar to the shade of the lipstick, which is suitable for easy identification of the product. The tube inside the packaging is metallic, and it looks pretty expensive. However, the sad part about the metallic tube is that it attracts a lot of fingerprints. Overall, it is a travel-friendly packaging with added glam.
Look And Feel
The texture of the Color Sensational Jewels lipstick is butter smooth. It glides easily over the lips and does not need tugging or pulling at all. One application of the product gives opaque coverage, and you can go for the second one to build up the color. In addition, it does not have any unpleasant smell.
I am a lipstick hoarder. After all, who does not love to wear kissable colors on lips? So, when I came across the Jewels collection by Maybelline, I had to try my hands on at least one of them. The brand has named the shades after precious and semi-precious stones so that each time you wear them, you get showered with compliments and feel like a celebrity!
Since I will attend a series of weddings very soon, I wanted something festive and celebrating as a lip color. This shade named ‘Pink Tourmaline’ (Shade No. 143) turned out to be the perfect spell for the purpose. The semi-precious stone tourmaline comes in a wide variety of colors, and this ‘pink tourmaline’ stands true to its name.
It is a warm pink color with slight blue undertones. It has a fine shimmer in it, which will not make your lips shine out of place but give a decent definition to them. The color will suit ladies with cool and gold skin tones very well. In my opinion, MAC skin tones NC20 to NC35 can best carry off this color. The color has a bit of a frosty look, but as I said earlier, it enhances the beauty of the festive spirit. Ensure that you exfoliate your lips properly before wearing this lipstick to make the most of the beautiful shade.
The lipstick stays on my lips for a good 4-5 hours with meals in between. But the pigmentation starts going off after 3 hours, leaving an excellent stain, which does not look gritty. The problem I faced on this front is that this lipstick transfers crazily. It will get transferred to coffee mugs, water glass, and everything else when it comes to contact. So, make sure that you dab it effectively with a tissue and some translucent powder right before leaving it on.
How To Use
Start applying the lipstick from the center of your lips and gradually proceed to the outer corners. Next, use a lip liner of the same color for a more defined look. Also, layer the product more for more coverage.
- Travel-friendly packaging
- Good pigmentation
- It does not smell bad
- Gives good coverage
- Flattering shade for festive occasions and parties
- Moisturizing enough
- Causes no flaking
- Good price
- The frosting is not over the top
- Bleeds and transfers a lot
- This shade is not for everyone
- The ingredient list is missing
This lipstick has a beautiful shade with a great texture. So, if you are in a festive mood and want some celebration on your lips, go for this shade without any second thought. It is apt for nighttime usage. It does need any preparation to wear, although it transfers a lot. Also, this specific shade does not suit all skin tones. But still, I recommend this lipstick to everyone. You can always choose the most suitable shade for yourself from the vast range of colors available.
