I never hesitate to try any products from Maybelline as I always trust that there products are best in the market. When I came to know that they have launched there new product Maybelline Lip Gradation on the market, I wanna give a try. I was eager to know more about the product before giving a try. I found that the product is quite expensive as like other products from Maybelline. I found that the product has a unique make which has two sides. One side it has the colour stick which has very gorgeous pop colours and the other end has a blender to give a gradation matte look. Maybelline Lip Gradation has 8 different vibrant shades, where you use single shade for pop as well for matte look. The product contains buttery soft formula which keeps your lips moisturized. It is very easy to use. After applying the bold one, you can just use the other end to smudge to get a matte look. I gave a try to Mauve 1 shade and I really liked it. As I can use the same colour for both bold and matte look. After usage I found thay the product doesn't stay for long and also found that the quantity of the product is less. After blending up the pop colour to matte look, my lips became little dry. My experience on the product is quite good.

Difficult to apply since it is patchy

Not worth the price


When Maybelline launched Lip Gradation lipsticks for the first time, makeup lovers on the internet were all in praise for the product. But, honestly, I did not like this lipstick at all. The reason is, it has been hyped too much that it failed to deliver what it claims to. This lipstick is one-of-a-kind because of its versatility. It has lipstick at one end and a rubber smudger at the other end. The purpose was to create a smudged look as desired by smudging it on the lips. But, when the lipstick itself is so patchy and difficult to apply, smudging with the rubber given will only hurt the lips and do nothing. I did not want to waste the lipstick, hence I mixed a bit of lipstick with vaseline and then applied it on my lips. The shades are pretty though! I used the smudger to create a gradient look with other lipsticks in my makeup stash. Overall, a waste of money and huge disappointment by my favourite brand, Maybelline.

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation is a two in one lipstick cum smudger. It is a product with good intent if you like defined lips, but alone, this product didn’t work for me. It was very dry for my lips and made my lips look flaky. I am quite fond of lipsticks and keep trying new lip products. I even like mixing colors to contour the lips to get that perfect pout. I had got this Lip Gradation by Maybelline, since I love a lot of their products. I liked the mechanics of it. It comes in a matte twisted pencil with lip color on one side and a smudger on the other side. You can use this blender side to mix colors on your lips or to contour your lips with a darker shade. You have to twist the bottom black part and not the top unlike other twister pencils. For a matte lipstick it transfers a lot! I am not fond of lipsticks that transfers on to your cups or hands. I have also noticed it bleeding from the side of your lips which again is a big no no for me. The packaging is cute. But I like to clean my makeup brushes often. There’s no way I can clean this smudger though! So after few applications it will remain dirty. It retails for a MRP of 500/- which I think is expensive for such little product. It’s available in 8 vibrant shades – they all look good on Indian skin tone. The pigmentation is good, but might make your lips dry. It gives the gradation effect on lips which is a big trend now with all the Korean beauty bloggers. You can either mix a different shade or fade the color in the outer corners of your lips. I wasn’t too happy with this product somehow.

Maybelline is a brand name which is not new to anyone . Maybelline Lip gradation comes in a very attractive and unique double sided stick. With one side having the actual product , it does not need to be sharpened very frequently and on the side side comes the blender tool which helps to smudge the lip colour smoothly and give the perfect matte finish look . This has a very good pigmentation and just one swipe in the lips is enough for a good colour .The texture is very creamy and smooth which makes it to blend in the lips very easily. Unlike other lipsticks, it does not settle near the lip lines. It last long for 3-4 hours . It has no fragrance . It comes off very easily when taking it off without leaving back any residue. My personal favorites are red -2 which suits for a daily wear , just one stroke gives a perfect red shade and glides very smoothly and Mauve-1 which suits well for my skin tone on heavy makeups. Its very small and travel friendly along with the blender tool which makes it user friendly too.It is little expensive but i love the way it blends with the lip using the blender tool. Looking forward to collect the other beautiful shades available in the product . A must use for all the lipstick lovers . It does not dries out so quickly and suits even for dry lips . If you are looking for a lip colour with smudger tool do try this maybelline lip gradation you will end up loving it. Will surely go for a repurchase just for the vibrant colours!!

Maybelline is a great product and sure most of us use Maybelline. These Maybelline Lip Gradation pencils are too good. They are mostly like that creamy matt lipstick that they have but these pencils are more buttery and they come in different bright vibrant beautiful colors. Very soft and easy to apply and the pencils come with a smudger. For those who like to create gradation or ombre kind of effect on the lips, this is a go to. Could be a little costly for the amount of the product it offers but it is definitely worth it. Simple yet strong. The lipsticks stay for a long time giving a nice matte finish. Love these lipstick pencils and those looking to buy these should give them a try.

Being a lipstick junkie , I always buy and use new ranges of lipsticks. I am eagerly awaiting new launches from different brands to try out. When the brand Maybelline launched this lip gradation in the market, I was super excited to try out these for myself. I bought two shades one is mauve 1 and pink 2. Packaging: Packaging wise these lip pencils are very unique. It comes in a retractable pencil format. There is a smudger attached other side of this lip pencil. The product is neither thin like a lip liner nor even thick as lipstick. So, it is somewhere between the two. Pigmentation and color payoff: Insanely pigmented. One stroke is enough to give full color payoff. Formula: it has soft smooth texture which glides evenly on the lips. The formula settles down to a completely matte finish, but it doesn’t stretch out or feel uncomfortable on your lips. Staying power: It stays upto 5-6 hour without having any food or drinks.

Maybelline is a brand that has managed to push its prices to Indian affordability so most of my make up too comes from Maybelline. I am a fan of the Maybelline color sensational range. I have almost all the shades from that range which I still use. In fact, I love its other makeup products like mascara and eyeshadows too. So when lip gradation range came to market, I immediately grabbed 2 shades – Mauve 1 and Coral 1. Both the shades looked gorgeous when I checked the images online. This is the reason that I did not check the testers at the store and bought the products instantly. Once back home, I first tried the shade Mauve 1. To my utter disappointment, the color just did not show on my face, it was a nude shade and I do not prefer nude shades. For me, shades are very important as I love to flaunt them. But this product looked as if I have applied some colored lip balm. Felt so bad that I have spent 550 bucks on a product that I will not be using at all. So went to store gain and checked the tester for the other shade (Coral 1). I liked this shade as it was better than Mauve 1 and in fact, looked good on me. Since I got a good shade now, I focused on other aspects of the product. The formula of the lipstick is actually smooth & creamy. Product claims to have pigmented crisp matte formula but it does not apply to all its shades. The stay of the lipstick too is not long. It transfers a lot and gets almost off after drinking & eating. This certainly is not expected from a medium-range product. To sum it all, not all the shades in this range are pigmented. For the price we pay, the lip shade does not worth it.

I am a use fan of Maybelline products and I'd love to try out there every new launch in the market. I am using the makeup products from Maybelline brand since my college days and I find this brand to be affordable with quality products. Maybelline Lip Gradation where's my absolute choice since it has been launched into the market. So I went ahead and bought in the red shade. It was quite expensive as compared to the other lip products of their brand. But as it was something new you I was very keen to try out. And oh my god it turned out to be a bummer. highly disappointed with this particular product and it's a complete fail for me. Dileep product is too creamy and looks oily on your lips. Also the question provided at the back end tore off after few uses. It does nothing as a product claims, I never knew how to you use as a lip gradation. I would never recommend it to anybody out there.

The surface of the lipstick is stunning. It feels rich and smooth during application. Takes around a few minutes before it sets into a delightful matte completion. Actually, on the grounds that they formed in a smooth way, you can likewise utilize them to arrange the lips before filling them with the shading.

I am a loyal user of many Maybelline products. It's been over a decade when I started using the Colossal by Maybelline which changed the world of Kohl eyes. And since then I have been using many of their products as they are way cheaper than the premium brands and are much better than many other brands around. After using the compact, lipsticks, mascara and colossal of Maybelline; I tried Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation. I liked to do gradation of my lipstick, but I used to do it with the index finger or sometimes with ear buds. And the look was never perfect. And many times the cotton of the ear buds used to get stuck at my lipstick. Yes, I have tried all those weird things unless I found an attached gradation cushion to a lip color itself. This cushion blender is just perfect to get the gradient look of a lipstick. The texture of Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation is soft and smooth and this gives a matte effect. The smudger makes it extra matte. Maybelline lip gradation is available in 8 bright and vibrant shades and I have grabbed two so far and willing to purchase more soon. I am using the Fuchsia 1 shade that gives a perfectly bright and dark shade. And the second one is Pink 1, which gives a sober and subtle day look. Being a hardcore fan of Maybelline products for almost a decade now, I don't find any flaws in the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation. Not because I blindly trust it, but I just can't get over their flawlessness. Overall Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation is one of the finest lip colors available in the market and they will not disappoint you in any manner.

It is simply a Wow product. I have almost tried all the shades as they are worth the price completely. Tried the red shade at a mall and loved it. Generally I do not prefer Red color but this one suits me well. It is so easy to apply and it feels as if it is gliding on the lips. The texture is very smooth and gives an equal coverage on the lips. The lipstick does not blot or come off easily after eating or drinking. It is fairly priced and is worth the money. They have an amazing collection of shades to match all the complexions hence you get a lot of variety to buy from.

just the other day I was watching the video about the Korean gradient lip trend. it is the technique of applying lipstick by concentrating the darker shade on the centre of the lips and gradually fading out at the edges. It does look cute and youthful. that very day I ordered my Maybelline colour sensational lip gradation. It comes in a double sided pen form, with the lipstick on one side and a cushion Blender on the other, which helps to create several makeup looks including the gradient lips. I got myself the Coral 1 shade. it comes in a very sturdy packaging and can be easily carried around in your purse. the lipstick is actually quite Slender and can be easily used as a lip liner as well. the lipstick is very nice and creamy and glides very well on your lips . it is a very Matte lipstick but doesn't dry out your lips at all. it is very well pigmented and does not need multiple swipe to show off the colour. also its staying power is good. It stays on for good 4-5 hours without meals. the smudger or blender (as Maybelline calls it) is good and is not very harsh on the lips. also it does give a nice gradient lip effect. overall I am very happy with this lipstick.

This is a dual-use lip color. It has a pencil on one side and smudger on the other hands. So you can have both a light party make up look as well as heavy and bold look. I like the matte effect of it, it comes in many vibrant shades and each shade is classic. I found it good as a gift for my office colleagues. The compact roll packaging makes it perfect for your travel vanity case. You need to apply a thin layer on your lips and the reapply as per your choice of look. I personally liked the mauve shade. It even smoothen chapped lips. It is creamy and has high pigment.The smudge applicator gives you a perfect smudge and natural matt finishing. The lips appear smoother and attractive. I like Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Gradation and will recommend it to others as well.

Maybelline has launched their new Lip gradation lip colors which are a hit with the college goers and people who love experimenting with their looks and lips. The packaging is quite sturdy and comes in a pencil shaped slender stick. It is double sided lip pencil which has the actual lip colour on one side and the other side has the cushion blender tool to give you gradation effect to your lips. The lip colour glides easily on the lips and is quite smooth and blends well with the lips without setting on the lip lines. Highly pigmented and hence just a single swish on your lips should be good to go and you can blend it with the blender tool to give a lustrous and fuller look to the lips. The lip color is quite creamy and does not dry up your lips. It gives a perfect matte finish to the lips. It is available in 8 vibrant shades and it quite travel friendly. A must have product in your bags ladies. Quite easy to apply travel friendly and easy on pockets. Lasts for long and has the best results. Gives a perfect matte finish look and does not dry up the lips. It feels very light and comfortable on the lips and is non transferable.

Rs 500 for just 1.25g. a little bit expensive. But the formula is really amazing. It has got creamy and buttery texture but it tends to use more. The packaging is quite complicated. This lip color transfers a lot. Moreover, this lip color bleeds as well, if you do not apply it correctly towards to your lip line. The covering lid is so tight that if your hands are with any lotion or cream, you may find it difficult to open it. It has got a sponge tip at its another end which can be used to give an ombre effect. However, this sponge tip gets dirty after its usage and one may find it unhygienic to reuse it again unless it been washed properly and carefully. The shades which are available in India are of total 8 in numbers and each one of them is beautiful to apply. The name of each shade is different like any other lipsticks. This time Maybelline has been named their lip crayons like – red 1, pink 1, mauve 1, etc. Overall, these lip crayons are good but I feel one can have much better options under this price range.

Maybelline lip gradation is a matte lipstick in the form of a pencil applicator that comes along with an attached smudger at the back. It help to decide the colour intensity and the matte effect. Although it is a matte lipstick it does not give a dry or chapped look but makes the lips look natural. The nude shades are especially suitable for those opting for a subtle look. Since iris in the form of a pencil it can also be used as a lip liner. I am using the shade mauve1 and it is really good. It gives a natural look and just gives a nice matte look. The smudger can be used to blend the lipstick and achieve the desired colour and effect. Otis a good buy.

The Maybelline New York has a high demand in the market and I individually recommend you to buy which will make your lips look dam awesome. This product gave a good attraction to me and Provide you the free movement of lips and not worrying about spreads. This Product is so handy that it has a pencil and blender in one. I generally suggest you buy the darker shades which give a rich look when you blend with the cushion provided at the back side of the product. I gently apply on all the corners of my lips only one touch up is enough. The way I applied was using the cotton substance provided with the product itself. Applying a thin layer will not spread and make your lips looks bold. This product is not that sticky and has ease of use. Many of my friends use the only gradient and after few hours the lipstick gets spread and loses the shape later I recommend them about this product then only slight touch up with light blend gives an awesome shape and look. I personally apply many products on my lips and suggest the best out of them. As of now, I am here to suggest you to buy this as it has two in one availability and also provides you the ease of use. This is so amazing and has a different color shade. I personally use this product when I go to any party or occasion. It allows your lips to look evenly and have the same color tone eventually this gives a shiny look make your lips glow This product is handy for me where ever I get time I just give a light touch up which glow my lips and make it more highlighted. As I use it regularly this product to be the best in class and I suggest you apply this as it has different shades which suit your skin and dress. This product will not harm your lips and I personally had experience as this product is best in use for me. This product has a good smooth and lets you feel natural. Go ahead and buy this product.

Maybelline Lip Gradation is not for lips like mine I suppose. I bought this lip stick while doing win-dow shopping in one of the malls and when the make up artist praised this product like anything to me and my friend I decided to give it a try. But all my money was wasted as I simply do not like the way this lip stick dries out my lips. We put so much of efforts in order to keep our lips hydrated and do not get a dry feel to it. However in just one usage of this lip stick I realised that this product is not my cup of tea. It does not blend well into the lips giving a patchy uneven look that I hate like anything. I would have hardly used it once or twice since I bought the same. It has got various vi-brant colours in a matte pencil with a smudger. The stick comes with the lip color on one side and a blurring cushion blender on the other and this is the best part that I liked about it. As it is very rare that the manufacturer gives a blender or a smudger along with the lip stick. It has got good pigmentation and might suit other lips but unfortunately not mine at all. I feel that the brand manufacturer should have worked on the smoothness of the lip sticks more along with the added smudger given with it. As the smudger would not be of much help if the lip crème itself is not al smooth. I was so excited to use this product and give the gradation effect to my lips which is trending so well now a days but too my surprise nothing of that sort happened. I strongly suggest to well try the testers before finalizing this lip crème for your self in order to avoid money wastage that happened in my case.

A lip pencil with a smudger I always use a lip pencil while applying lipstick. I like the definition it gives to the lips. I usually blend the lipstick and the lip pencil with a lip brush but it is usually very time consuming. Sometimes if I am in a hurry I usually avoid it with effect the lipstick and lip pencil don’t get blend well together. Maybelline is not a new brand and does not need an introduction. Maybelline brings out very trendy products and the products are all of very good quality. Maybelline Lip Gradation Pencil comes with a smudger that helps in blending the lip pencil and give a gradation effect. The smudger makes the pencil hard to resist. The gradient effect is a latest trend which makes the lipstick look as if you have been sucking a Popsicle. Gradient lipstick makes that effect stay for a longer time and it also looks very natural. Maybelline Lip Gradation pencil comes in 8 shades. All the shades are extremely beautiful. The lip pencil have a pencil on one end and a smudger on the other end. Once you apply the lip pencil, you can smudge it easily with the smudger to blend it with the lipstick or give that gradation effect which is trending these days. The pencil is in retractable form which does not need to be sharpened every time. The packaging is very sturdy and travel friendly. Maybelline lip pencil are very long lasting. These are rich in pigments. The lip pencil is very smooth and gives a matte effect. It blends very easily and doesn’t sit on the lips. It has no fragrance. I really liked this lip pencil because it is long lasting and the gradation effect is too gorgeous. It is a bit on the higher side when it comes to its pricing but it’s worth it.

Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Gradation is a matte pencil with a smudger. If you are looking for something sober and not to dramatic, this is not for you. All the 8 colours for me were and are vibrant and to the eye!! It’s definitely looking great but then I would like some browns and subtle colours. The finish is a matte finish and the Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Gradation can be used for dual purposes. Both the ends can be used well. One side has the lip colour and the other the smudge. The colours are rich. And when I say its rich it’s definitely heavily pigmentated. One stroke and its sufficient for the lips. Its sits in just great!! The after application looks just wow. The finish is amazing. Smooth to apply and then very easy to smudge over!! Yes, you read that right. It’s very easily transferable. That’s a very big negative for me. But then I suppose this is something that we all ladies have to compromise with. As the drawing can be easy I suppose the smudging is also very easy. And ver obvious, as its transferable it definitely does not long last!! You need to carry it and use it if you are looking at Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Gradation to stay long!! If you want the oomp factor use the Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Lip Gradation. It gives you all the colour and finish that you would long for. And if it’s for a party at night at any place which has lot of lights, trust me your lips will stand out!! Everyone would want to know what have you applied or used!! Try it and then recommend it. Watch it out for some damaged pieces. I feel the base is just nit strong. One fall and the lip stick could be damaged. Do not just buy it. Look properly and then buy it!!

Maybelline Lip Gradation – There are several shades of the LIP gradation, and I have bought Maybelline Lip Gradation Mauve Red 1. This is a dual end pen type where one end is lip cream, and another purpose is the sponge smudger. The packaging is pretty, and one might get attracted at first glance and during the trial. MY review on the Maybelline Lip Gradation Mauve Red 1 is a subtle lip gradation with a beautiful matte finish. The after-application color looks like a perfect nude color. The quality is excellent as the pigmentation is thick and with just single swipe you can apply on the lips. The lip gradation is creamy and smooth and can easily be applied to the lips with the help of sponge smudger. I have experienced a high staying power and it does transfer but not as much as other creamy lipsticks. The stick or the pen glides smoothly on the lips and is lightweight. I bought this Mauve red, but the shade is misleading after the application. To be honest the shade feels pretty in the mall lighting. Basically the yellow and white high intensity LED lights add the oomph factor. Always step out of the mall and test the colour in natural light. Or even better step into the trial room to get best results, even selfie helps. Comparing the cost with the quantity, I feel it is ok, but it is very much affordable. I have noticed in the store that some of the lipsticks are broken in the tube and the shades are not unique as well. And this happened to me too. I agree i have a messy bag, but i don’t expect my makeup to break this way and mess up the insides. Either i need to be extra careful or they need better packaging solutions.
