Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick POW 2: Review, Swatches and FOTD

Review By Karishma

Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick POW 2 Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hi Girls,

Recently, Maybelline launched their Pink Alert Lipsticks! And as you already know how much I love pink lipsticks, I just couldn't resist buying them. Sadly the Maybelline counters in Pune didn't have them even after a month of these beauties being launched. I really wanted to swatch the shades before buying them. That didn't work out so next stop was buying it online. I saw the swatches only for these lipsticks online but only 2 shades would suit my complexion. A total of four shades were launched named POW 1, 2, 3 and 4. I managed to get my hands on POW 2. On the hunt for POW 4 now! Do read on to know if it’s worth a buy…

Product description:
• Amp up your lips in the hottest pink
• In 4 bright pink shades
• Passionate Pink color only from our vivid color pigments.
• Creamier feel only from our nourishing honey nectar

The entire ingredients list is mentioned but it’s too tiny. So I’m just mentioning the key ingredients which are: Dimethicone, beeswax, tin oxide, aluminium hydroxide, titanium dioxide, mica, silica.

My experience with Maybelline Pink Alert – POW 2:
These lipsticks come in a pretty pink packaging with a plastic wrap which screams “PINK ALERT” (I so wish I had not torn that plastic wrap, the lipstick looks adorable with it). It has a color coded sticker at the bottom with shade name. The cap shuts tightly and won’t come off even if it’s rolling around in your bag. POW 2 is a gorgeous hot pink color with slight neon tones to it. It’s a gorgeous shade which would suit the Indian skin tone well especially fair to medium skin tones. It makes the face look fresh and bright.

The texture is really smooth and glides on the lips like butter and its quite hydrating. It has a semi matte finish. It doesn't bleed or settle into lines but does transfer a bit due to its texture.The pigmentation is amazing. Maximum too swipes are needed to cover even pigmented lips. It stays on for about 4 – 5 hours and leaves a pretty stain on the lips.

1. Gorgeous hot pink color
2. Brightens the face
3. Superb pigmentation
4. Creamy texture
5. Doesn't settle into lines
6. Moisturizes the lips
7. Amazing price tag!

1. Transfers a bit.

Final Verdict: 
Maybelline products are always high on quality! I simply loved this lipstick and I’ll definitely urge you to buy one from this range. If you are fair skinned beauty – your luck has favored you… all four shades will suit so go on and make a choice or simply buy all four. If you are a medium skinned beauty - pick POW 2 or 4 those are the safest bets but there’s no harm in experimenting with the other shades if they suit you. For the dusky beauties – I’m honestly not so sure how POW 2 or 4 will look on you… do try them out and if it suits you then pick it up without hesitation.I’m not going to repurchase this cuz I won’t be able to finish it so soon. But I’m eyeing POW 4!
