Maybelline Lip Gradation Pencils are very almost identical to the Color Blur Pencils but with a different name. Its a long slender pencil with a smudger on one end and the lip pencil on the other. The lip pencil is a hybrid between a lip liner and a chubby stick and is easy to line and fill in the lips. The product was inspired by the Korean ombre lip so you can create an ombre/gradient effect by smudging the lip color on the outer or inner part of the pout depending on your choice. I’m sure you all have been hearing some amazing things about this launch but personally I’m not too impressed. But first here are the Maybelline Lip Gradation Swatches & Shades. Do not that all the shades have a comfortable matte finish.
Maybelline Lip Gradation Pink 2: This bright raspberry pink kind of reminds me of MAC All Fired Up. It will compliment all skintones.
Maybelline Lip Gradation Pink 1: A beautiful mid toned pink, nothing unique about the color but definitely a flattering shade.
Maybelline Lip Gradation Coral 1: A true coral pink which is just perfect for summers!
Maybelline Lip Gradation Fuchsia 1: A blue based pink ie the perfect fuchsia pink!
Maybelline Lip Gradation Mauve 1: Most certainly not a mauve, this is a brown nude lip color which will flatter fair to medium skintones but might look a bit muddy on some.
Maybelline Lip Gradation Orange 1: A medium reddish orange.
Maybelline Lip Gradation Red 2: A beautiful tomato red which will please all red lovers
Maybelline Lip Gradation Red 1: A muddy red which seems to be a subtle version of Faces Midnight Rose & MAC Chilli.
The concept of the Maybelline Lip Gradation Pencils is unique and interesting. There isn’t any product in India which caters to the ombre lip. However, the shades didn’t excite me at all. I already own such shades in my stash and none were unique. Plus, the biggest drawback was its quantity. The lip pencil is so small and I’m pretty sure it would get over soon. I could not find the quantity mentioned anywhere on the product but after some research I found out that its 0.04 ounces which is roughly 1.13gms. Paying 500 bucks for Maybelline for that quantity is way too high and is almost equal to the price of a MAC Lipstick.
Maybelline has been one of my most favorite brands due to the good quality yet affordable pricing however this year I’ve been noticing the prices aren’t really justified be it the Fit Me powders, blushes or this particular product. In the end I didn’t pick up any color due to the low quantity and the common shades as I didn’t find it worth the price tag. What’s your take on the new Maybelline Lip Gradation Pencils?
