Hello Everyone!

I am here with the review and swatches of the current talk of the town 'MAYBELLINE LIP GRADATIONS' !!

These are launched in 8 bright and matte shades in Indian market with a mix of pinks and reds.

Available in shades:
Pink1, Pink2, Mauve1, Fuchsia1, Orange1, Red1, Red2 and Coral1.

Rs. 500/- INR for 1.25g

I got my hands on 2 of these shades Coral1 and Red1.


L-Coral1, R - Red1

Packaging & Texture:
These lip gradations comes in a plastic retractable tube with lipstick on one side and a sponge smudger on the other side. These are completely matte and easily glides on the lips. For the perfect look, it is suggested to apply color on the centre of your lips and use the smudger to extend the color to the outer edges of your lips. These are quite pigmented and gives a velvety matte finish!

Maybelline Red1 Lip Gradation - I am in love with this!!

Maybelline Red1 Lip Gradation

Staying power:
It stays for around 4-5 hours with no touch up required. Light shades fade away faster than the darker ones. These get transferred but the quantity is quite less.

Maybelline Coral1 Lip Gradation

 - Does not dry out the lips
 - Highly pigmented
 - Affordable
 - Amazingly matte
 - Glides very smoothly
 - Travel friendly

 - Lips needs to be completely hydrated else it settles into the fine lines gradually
 - Currently only available on Habbana (
 - Beautiful shades but not different than what we already have seen
 - The gradation part does not work for lighter shades and is slightly visible for the darker shades

The Maybelline Lip Gradations are worth giving a try. These works best for those who love lipsticks with matte finish.

3.5/5 (keeping in account the limited colors and the gradation part)

Let me know if you were able to try these lippies and what do you feel about them!!
Till then, Bbye!!
