My Opinion:-
I am not much of a lipstick person, tinted balms and glosses are good enough for me. But once in a while, I too buy lippies in nude shades if I happen to love the color. This Maybelline Moisture Extreme lippie in Honey Ginger was sitting unattended since maybe a year in my dresser. While cleaning/organising my stuff I came across this lippie and here I am reviewing it for you all.

The red sleek packaging is very attractive and eye catching, I love it. The red tube is made of sturdy plastic and a couple of falls in my case didn't damage the lippie or the tube itself. The lid clicks shut tight and opens with a little pull. The packaging is very much purse-friendly and can be thrown into the purse and forgotten.

The fragrance is so mild that my nose couldn't pick it. The color is so pretty, a classy nude brown. I love this shade so much that I have started using it at most times nowadays. It a perfect brownish nude for fair to wheatish skintones but its definitely a big no no from the dusky beauties. It gives a glossy effect and makes my mouth look fuller and amplified. Though I sometimes top it with my Oriflame Powershine Lip Gloss in and its good enough to be worn in a day time party.

The texture of this lipstick is very creamy. But then this creamy-ness didn't make it melt in my purse during this hot season also. It glides on effortlessly on my lips and just 2 swipes are enough for full opacity. This lipstick is very pigmented and gives the lips a glossy effect. The best part is that it comes without shimmer, atleast my shade has no glitter/shimmer in it. Its highly moisturising and its rightly named 'Moisture Extreme'.

Now coming to the staying power, it stays on for around 3 hours and goes through tea/juice or light snacks. But it does need a touch up after a full meal. Also this lippie has the tendency to bleed out of the lip line. Wearing foundation/concealer or a good quality lip base along with light dusting of translucent powder around the mouth can fix the bleeding problem. Also it a must to line lips with a matching color lip liner when wearing this lipstick because when it fades the lip liner will be visible. Ofcourse it fades evenly and doesn't disappear totally. A sexy tint is left behind and my lips are not left stark naked.


* Stayed on for 4.5 hours through 2 glasses of juice otherwise stays on for 3 hours max
* Fades off evenly, leaves a slight stain behind
* Beautiful nude shade, great for fair and medium skintones
* Very pigmented, 2 swipes are enough
* Highly moisturising
* Has so many lovely nude shades

* Very moisturising hence it bleeds but a slight dusting of powder around the mouth can solve this problem
* Fungal growth on a certain spot :(

I rate this lippie 4.25 out of 5 as it is extremely moisturising and suits my nearly dry lips. Lovely nude shades makes me go weak on my knees :P ;) and this one was no exception. A must try for nude lovers with fair to medium skintones. But for me one nude lippie from 1 particular range is more than enough, no more buying again =)
