Hello pretty girlies! This is going to be my first review on Diva likes and I am absolutely thrilled to be writing here. Thank you so much Lavanya and Diva Likes team for this opportunity. I have worked in the IT sector before, been in UK & Italy for my MBA, came back to India, got married recently and moved to Bangalore. I have been a beauty geek since my graduation days and my love for fashion and cosmetics has only grown each day. Today, I am reviewing Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Yummy Plummy. Yummy Plummy is one of the cool mauve shades. Maybelline is one of my favorite brands and has pretty good products with reasonable price. I loved the Color Sensational range shades which are perfect for the urban woman.

My Experience With Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Yummy Plummy:

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Yummy Plummy is packed in a matte finish purple translucent plastic cap with a silver base. It closes with a click sound and the overall packaging looks quiet classy. I am not that fond of mauve shades, but got this shade as a gift from one of my friends who thought this will look great on a dusky clear skin tone. I have a dusky face with brown pigmented lips. Though this shade looks very girly, it does not live up to the product description of pure pigments for crisp and rich color. It does not cover my natural dark pigmentation perfectly. It has a faint sweet smell which resembles of vaseline cocoa lotion. It has a moisturizing consistency and creamy texture which glides easily on my lips. It does not dry out my lips and smells great suggesting the goodness of essential oils present in it. However, it did not accentuate my lips appearance and didn't brighten my face. This lipstick does not stay for very long time and does not leave any tint for absolute coverage. When I teamed it up with a transparent glittery Maybelline lip gloss, it looked quite neat. I think it may look better on fair skin tone girls with natural pink/peachy lips. But for dark lipped beauties, this is not the perfect shade.

Pros Of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Yummy Plummy:
  • Smells very sweet
  • Classy Packaging
  • Glides smoothly on my lips
  • Does not dry out with re-application
  • Moisturized and soft lips after application

Cons Of Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Yummy Plummy:
  • On the costlier side
  • The staying powder is maximum 2 hours
  • Does not provide perfect coverage for dark colored lips
  • Does not accentuate the overall look of face for dusky skin tone
  • Does not give lips a fuller look

Diva Likes Rating:


Final Note:

I think it is a great shade but the tint is not strong enough for good coverage. I looked up online and found it has been discontinued in many sites and replaced with shades like Maybelline Color Sensational Plum Paradise Lip Color(425) and other mauve shades.
