Hello, everyone! Carnation Cabernet is one of those few limited edition lip colors that were launched by Maybelline for their Color Sensational Rebel Bloom range. I was checking out those colors and of all the colors, I felt this is the most wearable and prettiest one. I was so lucky to have this color in the haul and I love the way it brightens the face, reminds me of Louis Litt of Suits, "Litt Up". The lipstick has some amazing texture and formula and I really see myself wearing it for special daytime occasions. Read on to know more about this in detail.

My Experience With Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Carnation Cabernet 970:

Packaging: The lipstick has the similar Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick packaging. It comes with rectangular packaging with a color coded cap that indicates the color and upon capping it, you will get a gorgeous body of silver. It has the twist up packaging which works efficiently. The shade name and number is written on the bottom. The packaging is lightweight, looks pretty and travel-friendly.

Shade: The shade "Carnation Cabernet" is a pretty fuchsia-berry with cool, blue undertones but brightened up my warm skin tone so beautifully. I have worn berry colors before but every time it was excessively bright for warm skin tones but this color is a darling! It is a perfect shade for the spring/summer and looks gorgeous with floral dresses and outfits. The color is a very close match or dupe of Urban Decay Sheer Anarchy and Lipstick Queen Play It. The color will suit fair to medium skin tones really well.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is medium to buildable. Since it has glossiness it in, the color doesn't provide full saturation and you have to layer it up for that. Since the color is leaning on the bright side, you can easily use it as a lip stain as well. Use a lip balm underneath or apply the lipstick with a lip brush to tone down the brightness. Similarly, you can increase the intensity by layering lip liner underneath to maximize the color.

Texture: The texture of the lipstick is creamy-glossy. Due to the emollient consistency, it gives a wet appearance when applied. The texture is very thin, lightweight and feels very comfortable to wear. It will not accentuate on fine lines and wrinkles unless the lips are dry and parched. The lipstick also moisturizes the lips and hence you can skip the lip balm underneath if you want.
Formula: The formula is comfortable and semi-glossy as I have mentioned about the emollient consistency. However, the lip color doesn't bleed or feather on the lips. But it does transfer a lot for which you have to be very careful.
Staying Power: The lipstick lasted on me for around 4 hours and then it started to fade off. It fades off real quick if you consume food or fluid and thus you have to reapply to keep up the saturation and evenness. Once it starts fading, it leaves behind a pretty berry stain to the lips without uneven patches which I really like.
