Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipgloss - Shade Glisten up Pink Review

Hey everyone! I am back with a review on Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipgloss in shade Glisten up Pink. I know these glosses are making rounds in the blogosphere and I just want to add my two cents. So hear me out! :)

PRICE: ₹350


  • More Vibrant Color from pure liquid pigments
  • Cleaner Shine from our 100% wax-free gloss
  • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
  • Now gloss goes gutsy in 8 arresting shades
  • Expert Tip 


MY EXPERIENCE: Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipgloss comes in a regular rectangular tube with mirror-finish screw cap and doe foot applicator. The shade Glisten up Pink is a baby pink color with a frosty finish. It is a pretty color indeed when it tones down a little but I would have preferred it minus the silver shimmers that make it look so frosty on my skintone. But hey, it says to give "high shine" on lips and so it delivers. ;)

Like other Maybelline glosses, it is quite creamy but not as moisturising (probably because of the overdoze of shimmers, that also feels a little gritty initially). It is not that opaque and my lip lines gets more pronounced. It stays on an average of 2-3 hours with a little snacking but it doesn't survive a meal (does any lipcolor do? I wonder who won't wipe their lips after lunch/dinner...eeks! :P). Maybelline also hiked their price with this new range which is not fair..boohoo!

  • Creamy gloss that glides easily on lips.
  • Lightweight and non-sticky.
  • On an average stays for 2-3 hours, and more if you don't snack in between.
  • Gives high shine as the name suggests.  
  • The shade is pretty itself but not exactly for my skintone.

  • The silver shimmers gives a frostiness that doesn't suit me and also feels a bit gritty on lips.
  • This particular shade doesn't give opaque coverage to my lips.
  • Prices hiked by Maybelline.

VERDICT: If you want a shade that would add shine to your lipcolor then you might try the Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipgloss in shade Glisten up Pink. It looks good with a brownish or similar base color. But this shade is not suitable for all skintones, when worn on its own. Let me know whether you tried this!

RATINGS:  3.75 out of 5

  1. I loved your second Lip swatch in this review :D

  2. You know mine got lost in courier :/ Mirrored Mauve and few other non shimmery shades are nicee..I ordered Plum Lustre through Myntra..yet to try though..

    1. Courier sucks these days...:(
      Waiting for ur review on Plum Lustre!

  3. I felt the same with this shade. The frosty shimmer didn't suit my skin tone. Otherwise like it!

    1. I know right...I like the pink shade minus the frosty shimmer!
