Stop the cars and Let the Sun Shine Brighter! The Pink Alert in on: Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick in POW3

Yes, lately I have realized, apart from reds, I love pinks and in the right moment, Maybelline joined the game with their Pink Alert Lipsticks. I love neonish and bright colors. But frankly, I never thought I could pull off neon pinks, especially, with my current NC42 skin tone. On opening the tube, I was DAZZLED by the neon pink and I turned into jelly.

I loved the color, yet wasn't sure how it would look on me. But when I tried it on, it was LOVE! Look
how refreshing the color is for hot summer days and frankly, it brightens up my sunny days further!


Review of Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick in POW3

My experience:


Pigmentation: I love the neon pink shade.I do not get why people would want to apply one coat. For precise application, I definitely go over two or three coats with every lipstick no matter how pigmented they are and yes, this one, even though a light color, covers my pigmented lips pretty well.

Texture: It goes over very smooth and creamy. BUT, after some time, I have noticed, with time, it kind of sets. Not exactly in the dry and uncomfortable way, but loses the creaminess to a certain extent and sets pretty well. Once set, it survives light meals.

I won't go into pros and cons since I find everything a pro in this lipstick. 

There are 3 more shades available and I'm sure, every skin color would find a beautiful match.

As for myself, I am definitely lusting after a couple of more. Only if my lipstick stash were not overflowing.... *sigh*

These affordable lipsticks are available every where and if you like pinks or if you want to try out pinks, I would say, look at this line.

Possible dupe:  Last time I walked into a MAC store, the SA was wearing the same shade as mine. She was wearing Candy Yum Yum and my lipcolor looked very close to hers. I think this shade is close to that one.

Verdict: This one delivered more than what I expected. wait up for an LOTD. ( I had done one and then, went out and forgot to shoot . Felt so 'silly' later.)
