Red-y for it

This is actually my favourite Maybelline lip product. I don't actually bother with the gradiation. The formula of these lip pencils are lighter and smoother than the Maybelline lipsticks. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything on my lips. The color pay off is really pretty. I have both Red 1 and Red 2 and they're beautiful on the skin. They're pigmented and the shape of the pencil makes it easy to apply. It is a matte formula still so wearing some light balm underneath it helps. Highly recommend.

Proud pout!

I love how its well-pigmented color perfectly glides on my lips. It's very easy to apply and, unlike other matte products, it does not leave my lips feeling dry. Maybelline truly never disappoints! The price is worth up to the last application! So flash that proud pout now! =)

Perfect for KBeauty lovers!

I've lately been into KBeauty trends like glass skin/dewy skin, ombre lips, etc. This product is perfect for the ombre lip trend because you can create the perfect gradient effect on your lips with it. What I've learned from multiple attempts at the ombre lips is applying a lip balm first before applying other lip products so the color "bleeds" and gradiates more nicely and so that it doesn' tlook or feel dry.

Cool Concept

I see this working for those "Korean" looks because one side applies color while the other one works as a softener/smudger. Really like the concept of this, wish there were more colors to choose from. I suggest applying lip balm before applying this to get an even smoother gradient/transition. Good product indeed.

Perfect for Gradation, but is very drying.

This used to be my go-to, since gradation helps me make my lips look less huuugee. I kind of destroyed the lipstick since the retracting mechanism is very confusing so I smeared the lipstick on the cover A LOT. The lipstick itself is VERY pigmented so you don't really have to do multiple coats but rather be careful, the sponge is very helpful in achieving the gradation. The con has to be that it is a matte lipstick, and my lips turned sahara desert when I have this on, and after a few hours the gradation would look weird on my lips because it's already cracking. This is a good product over-all for me, just bring petroleum jelly ALWAYS hahaha.

Love the color!

I love the fact that I can adjust the shade of this lippie. I can make it a striking red or have a lighter shade which makes it look like pink. Plus the blending sponge is really soft and easy to use. However, I don't like how it dries my lips. I have to use a lip gloss or balm so it won't be totally dry.
