My Experience With Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color Bare To Be Bold:
Packaging: Maybelline Color Whisper Lip Color Bare To Be Bold comes in a translucent terracotta brown long slender cap with a gleaming silver body. It has the usual twist up function and works very well. The lipstick is light weight and slender looking. Hence it is very easy to carry. The 'Color Whisper' is written on silver which looks very pretty. Overall, it is appealing to the eyes and also efficient in handling.
Shade: The shade 'Bare To Be Bold' stands up to its name. It is a sheer beige nude. Now, literally speaking this color would make the Indian skin tones look pale but to my utter surprise, it looks like a charm. It adds a nude touch to the lips yet not like a concealer that will go super pale on you. It lightens the pigmentation slightly and adds a layer of sheen. This is such a gorgeous everyday color. There have been days when I went for thick kohl clad eyes and a layer of this color and it looked so sophisticated and presentable. The color is a thumbs up for me.
Pigmentation: As I have mentioned earlier that the color is sheer, hence it is not that buildable. No matter how many layers you go for, it has a certain percentage of color pay off and it won't go after that. I think the sheer touch works for the color because if it would have been pigmented, the color would look pale.
Texture: The texture is soft, buttery and smooth. It glides on the lips like anything and doesn't accentuate on fine lines or dry patches at all. It is surely a good thing for dry lips and will work great for winter. You don't need a lip balm underneath as it is hydrating itself. It doesn't feel waxy or uncomfortable and you would not feel anything heavy at all. The color doesn't bleed or feather as well.
Formula and Finish: The formula reminds me of gel gloss which feels so hydrating yet comfortable on lips. The finish is between lip balm and lip gloss and the sheen on top is surely very pretty. The color does transfer while eating but as it is very sheer, you can say that the transferring is negligible.
Staying Power: The staying power of the color is around 3-3.5 hours and after that it starts to fade off slightly. Also, food and fluid intake is largely responsible as the color seems to get wiped off completely after heavy meals and then you have to reapply. You can also pair up the color on top of any other lip color you want. Maybelline Color Whisper lipsticks are well priced but the availability in India is a little difficult.
