I received two complimentary shades of Maybelline's Lip Color from Influenster for testing and review. For more information on Influenster, click here.
All opinions are my own.
The items came in a small sturdy box (I am usually so excited to see the deliveryperson, free makeup can do that to ya).
Inside this box were two Lip Color shades which were encased in their own plastic cuboid containers.
The actual Lip Colors come in an almost cylindrical tube - the lip balm is situated on one end, the pigmented lip on the other.
An info card also came in the box, relating the characteristics of the new product and how to apply.
When opened, the pigmented Lip Color has a mild, fruity scent.

On trying Maybelline's Lip Color, the product goes on sheer so a second coat can be applied if desired.
It dries in a couple of minutes, then the balm should be applied to the lips.
I included some photos of myself wearing the Lip Color approximately 20 minutes after application, then 10 hours later.

Only the lip balm was reapplied as directed.
I realised that the color mainly stayed on my lips however, there were parts that rubbed off because I neglected to remove the dry skin from my lips beforehand.
A scrub of some sort should have been used before I applied the Lip Color.
I also wore the Lip Color in a darker shade Keep Up The Flame, in a recent YouTube lookbook video.
The color needs to be removed using an oil based remover. I used coconut oil, rubbed the oil on my lips for a few seconds and then wiped it off gently with a baby wipe.
I liked the product, its durability and the two shades that were sent to me. I hope to purchase a couple shades when they are available in my region.
