My Experience With Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Nude Embrace 970:
Packaging: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick (limited edition) comes in a glossy silver body with the beige (almost) opaque plastic cap that shuts with a click. The shade name is written on the bottom but since the packaging is color coded, you won't have a problem at all. The lipstick is sturdy enough to carry around for touch ups and extremely travel-friendly. Overall, I liked the decent packaging.
Shade: The shade Nude Embrace is a creamy pale mauve with a slight hint of pink in it. The color is meant for cool to neutral skin tones with fair complexion. If you see the lip swatch closely you will see that it strikes a lot with my warm skin tone and surely makes me look pale. However, if you simply dab the color slightly on the lips, it gives a beautiful mauve nude color without washing you out and would look stunning with a dark smoky eye. Even though the color is pale on my skin when worn in full saturation, I love the way it neutralizes dark eye makeup.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is good. With one swipe it gives almost full saturation of color and second swipe is great when you have to cover pigmentation on lips. As MLBB colors don't give full pigmentation, this one is surely an exception. It doesn't look patchy or uneven with one coating as well.
Texture: The texture of the lipstick is a rich creamy one. Having said that, it is very forgiving for dry and chapped lips but still I would advise opting for well-prepped lips for neatness. The creamy texture glides well on the lips without any tugging and gives a rich layer to the lips. The color looks creamy but not glossy. I never wore it underneath lip liner but it has never bled on my lips so I really loved the texture.
Finish: The finish of the Color Sensational Lipstick is creamy but not overly glossy. It surely makes a nice statement with the beautiful finish. The thing that bothers me is that the color transfers a lot, owing to its texture. Otherwise, the finish is really good.
Staying Power: The color stayed on my lips for around 5 hours with little snacks and drinks but it is not good enough to survive a heavy meal. Also, it fades with the passage of time, starting from the center of the lips. However, it will not get patchy or uneven and simply leaves behind a trail of bareness on the lips.
