REVIEW: Maybelline Lip Polish by Colorsensational (Glam 3)

First of all, let me start this post by saying...Kevin is NOT going to like this. I am still banned from purchasing any lip products but I just cannot let this go! And for a damn good reason to!

I present you the original retail price...MYR32.90.

And I paid...MYR14.90 for it! It was slightly more than 50% off the retail price! It was bloody brilliant price wise and hey, I'm the Queen of Bargain Hunters, eh?

There was 6 - 7 different shades on sale but I somehow managed to resist temptation and only bought "Glam 3". Yes, ladies and gentlemen, miracles do happen every now and then.

List of ingredients:
Octyldodecyl, eopentanoate, hydrogenated polyisobutene, dimethicone, hydrogenated styrene/methy strene/indene copolymer, hydrogenated polycdecene, hydrogenated styrene/butadiene copolymer, bis-diglyceryl  polyacyladipate-2, hydrogenated castor oil isosterate, silica dimethy silylate, pentylene glycol, calcium aluminium borosilicate, caprylyl glycol, isopropyl isostearate, alumina silica, synthetic fluorphlogopite, pentaerythrityl tetra-di-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, calcium sodium borosilicate, mel/honey, magnesium solicate, tin oxide, sodium hyluronate, polyethylene, terephthalate, aluminium hydroxide, acrylates copolymer.

The wand itself is something that I have never seen before. It's wider than all glosses that I owned and yet, it actually made the application better. When I first saw the wand, my first thought was 'uh huh, here comes the mess...' but I was very wrong. Quick and accurate application which was fantastic in my book as one of the reason I am not a huge fan of lip gloss or anything like it is messy, sticky application.

Swatch: A very soft coral peach with pink undertone. It looks very orange in the tube but upon application, it gives a beautiful soft wash of coral on the lips. I must admit that I was a little alarmed when I swatch this and saw shimmer in it. Hey, I don't want to be walking around with my lips looking like a shinny, oily disco ball but thankfully, I can barely see the shimmer after application.

Don't mind my exhausted face and dark circles...this mama-to-be has not been sleeping the past couple of nights. LOL!

While the texture of this lip polish is thick, it does not feel heavy or tacky on my lips. I really like the glossy finish that this product offers as it made my lips look plumped up, almost bee stung like. The application was smooth and it felt very hydrating and moisturizing on my lips. Pigmentation wise is decent with me getting a good coverage with 2 thin layers. It also did not settle into my lips fine lines nor did it bleed out like most glosses do which are more bonus points!

All in all, this is a brilliant lip product for anyone on the go as it's supposedly balm, lipstick and gloss all in one. I can honestly see this creeping up to be one of my top 3 favourite!
