Review: Maybelline Watershine Lipstick P11

Maybelline is currently having a sale on all its products, the discounts range from 20-30% off. Their items are flying off the shelves! I wanted a new pale pink lipstick, and so I headed to the nearest Maybelline counter, swatched a couple of testers, and fell in love with shade P11. Unfortunately, it was already out of stock back home (at Iloilo City); but luckily, they still have stocks here in Cagayan de Oro.

This is how it looks on my lips:

Over-all look

The good: I love the color, it's a very pretty pale pink. Exactly what I was looking for. Packaging is pretty too. Price is ok, I got it for Php 209, that's already with 20% off. Regular price is Php 299.

The bad: A bit too shiny for my taste (I know the label says Watershine Diamonds, but I didn't expect it too be sooo glossy). I hate having anything sticky on my lips, it makes me look (and feel) like I just ate lechon. I call it the "lechon look". Plus, it's pretty annoying when my hair sticks to my lips. Color pay-off is not too good, it takes me several swipes to get the color I wanted. One or two coats look very sheer on lips.

My two cents: I will only repurchase if it goes on sale again. I'm still on the look-out for the perfect baby pink. I might try Elf's lipstain next.
