Today after work, I went to City Of Tomorrow Mall, I was going to buy Silky Girl Make Up Remover but when I arrived at the counter, the SA said that it was out of stock, too bad… And then I got curious as I walk in front of Maybelline counter, ‘hey, they got pretty delicious color there’ my mind said that ha ha… So I browsed to the lip color testers, asked if they got orange lipstick with full coverage, and then the SA offered me this :
Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipcolor CB42 Bronze Orange
She tried it on my lips using lip brush in a thin-medium layer and it turned that I liked it. It’s orangey like some color of Korean lipstick trend that is happening this year. Actually there were 3 orangey color, the other had coral-somewhat color and this is was the most orange color from all the Maybelline lipstick. Yes, I bought it without hesitation… It’s a bit sheer and glossy color, give us fresh moisturized look on our lips, sounds great, eh…
Just bought, still wrapped
The bottom label
Just opened from the pastic wrap
U can see that the color is more into red than orange
I bought it for Rp. 35.000 (about $5), it’s affordable in my opinion. The packaging material is cheap although it has attractive orange color. The color coat of the packaging is easily torn off just by little scratch.
At home I tried to put in on my lips without using lip brush and coz I wanted full coverage for my pigmented lips so I applied it generously. Since I have dry, chopped lips, the lipstick sink into lines. It also did not go smooth to cover my flaky lips.
Seems like I put it too much, the color looked more reddish than orangey. I wonder, did the SA gave me the wrong color, but it is bronze orange, the same like one which I tried before. So I conclude that I should not put it in thick layer coz it is supposed to be applied with the right amount so it can appear to be fresh pink-orangey color and it won’t look good if I put it too much…
The swatch is here (My apologizes for the poor camera)
Since my lips is not on the healthy condition right now, dry, chopped and pigmented so I can’t wear this alone, I suppose a lip concealer and or lip balm shall be used before applying this lipstick. The name is moisture extreme but still I think it is not enough for my lips coz my lips still dry if I don’t put a lip balm first. About the staying power, it’s gone every after I finish my meal.

Well, actually I quite surprised that it is made in China.
Now let see the ingredients, it is printed on the transparent plastic wrapping label in small white fonts.

D29390/1) -- > I don’t know what is the meaning of this code in the end of the ingredients list printed on the label.
I compare the packaging with my Wardah Hydrogloss Lipstick, surprisingly, it is similar. The most noticeable difference is the center line between the body and the cap. (My apologizes for the poor camera)
