|A stylish new lip gloss from Maybelline New York. They have provided a great selection of colours and a shimmering formula that sits smoothly on the lips, looking shiny and healthy.|
The lip gloss comes in a transparent tube, like most other lip glosses, with a white screw off lid. I really like the design made on the lid which makes the packaging chic and girly. The cap has a regular sponge doe foot applicator inside which is soft and applies the product well on my lips. When opening the tube, all you have to do is open the lid and it pushes itself up out of the tube which is very handy and convenient. The packaging is small enough to fit in your handbag as it quite light and compact. The lip gloss is available in a number of different shades so I think there is something for every skin tone.
The lip gloss has vanilla scent which is very mild and pleasant. It has slightly thick and gel like texture but applies quite smoothly on my lips without smudging or bleeding. It doesn’t feel sticky on my lips unlike other lip glosses. It makes my lips look moisturized even without a lip balm underneath. The pigmentation of the lip gloss is quite sheer. It adds an even layer of pigment so if you have heavy pigmented lips then this is not for you. The finish is glossy which looks really pretty for both day and night out looks. The lasting power is pretty average. It stays on for about 2-3 hours with light meals but with heavy meals it vanishes away completely. It does need to be reapplied throughout the day. Even when it is worn off, my lips still feel moisturized and not dry at all.
Shade ‘289’ is a pinky plum shade with silver shimmers but when applied on lips it looks MLBB shade. The shimmers are very subtle and look iridescent on the lips. It doesn’t look over the top and would be suitable for both work wear as well as evening night outs. It looks lovely either alone or over the top of your pink lipstick. My lips do look fuller when applied. The shade would suit all skin tones.

Maybelline MNY My Gloss has slightly thick and gel like texture that doesn’t feel sticky or heavy on lips. It provides sheer coverage and if you have heavy pigmented lips then you may give it a pass. The staying power is pretty average and the lip gloss stays put on my lips for about 2-3 hours but vanishes away completely with heavy meals. The lip gloss is very moisturizing and helps keep dry lips at bay. The shade ‘209’ is pinky plum shade with silver shimmers in tube and looks MLBB on my lips. If you are fond of sheer lip glosses then I shall definitely recommend it to you.
