To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The colour is okay, somewhat dull and has too much silver in it. Frosted lipstick can be nice but this should be toned down as it is quite drying, stale & cheap looking. This lipstick has potential & I think Maybelline can work on improving it but it isn't what I expected.
I have really pale lips. I've been looking for a nude lipstick that gives my lips a little pop of color. This wasn't it. This somehow made me look worse. It looks good on my cheeks though so I'll use it as a cream blush.
It seems like Maybelline must have changed the formula for this lipstick. I've been purchasing this exact one for years and it's always been extremely long-wearing, even after eating and drinking. This tube just does not stay on and it doesn't seem to have the same consistency. Disappointing.
I have olive skin tone, and I did not think "on the mauve" looked good on me. but the color was true to the picture. It comes out pretty strong but it does take a few times to apply and has short lasting power. I am not sure about the texture but it was not really smooth or creamy. It was like putting on old fashioned lipstick. I suspect it might've been discontinued, old stock. It was packed like it was a return, with partial, ripped plastic over it. No tight, all around seal. Took my chance regardless of reviews and figured I would not buy or use again.
I purchased "On the Mauve" and did not like it. The formula was nice and slick so it applied well, but as with most drugstore lipsticks, this is laden with frost/shimmer. As far as I know, the frosty lipstick trend was left behind in the eighties and nineties and hasn't yet come back around. Moreover, on my naturally plum-brownish colored lips, this shade just looked weirdly deathly. I guess that's the risk we take when buying lipstick online. :(
