Hello girls. <3
Finally I took the plunge and got myself one Lip Polish from Maybelline. Every single review I have been through on these lip polishes was too positive to ignore them completely and yes I did fall in love with these. 🙂 The shade I have today is Glam 9 and I do plan to get few more summer appropriate orange, peach and pinks real soon. 😉 I think I am getting addicted to glosses now. O:)
Presenting Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 .

My Experience with Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9:
Maybelline Lip Polishes as you all are aware, comes in a square transparent tube that is just too cute to look at. The inner barrel is shaped like an inverted lipstick which does add to it’s charm. By far this is the smallest and cutest tube of lipgloss I have with me. 🙂
The applicator of Maybelline Lip Polishes is again quite unusual. Shaped like a petal, it has a bent tip. It does apply smoothly on lips and delivers just enough color to cover your lips. However I do feel the need to even out the color with either my finger or by smacking my lips together few times.
Packaging wise I love this Lip Polishes but I find sponge applicators easier to apply lip color evenly on lips.
The color Glam 9 is a medium pink with a lot of peach in it. Does sound like a subtle pink but it is not. Immediately after application, it stands out in an almost neon fashion during the day (I am wheatish, NC35 in MAC). After around an hour of wear, it mellows down and looks just perfect for a casual date or even for office. In dull evening light, I love how the true colors looks on me. Not at all stark, but a lovely peachy pink. Also it would be a great companion if you have a lot of drama going on in your eye makeup for a night out.
Up close you can see very fine golden shimmer infused in the formula but on lips they are absolutely invisible. It does help in making your pout look plump without messing with the color or texture. <3
Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 Swatch:
Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 on my lips:
The texture is a little thick but not gooey. Its creamy, absolutely non sticky and spreads very easily on lips. I do understand why they have been named these as LIP POLISHES . They do have a lacquer finish that looks like a polish immediately after application. With a color like this your lips do stand out for quite some time. The polished shine goes off after some time leaving a soft satiny color on your lips that stays on for around 3 hours. It survives small snacks and drinks and fades evenly. With a heavy meal it would need touching up for sure. Personally I like the texture better after the shine fades off. Looks more even and does not highlight the dry patches if you have any. 🙂
It is not highly moisturising per se, but it is very comfortable to wear. It keeps lips soft as long as it is there on your lips and even when it fades off it does not leave your lips dry. My lips are going through a very bad phase right now and I am not too fond of staining and long stay lip products which makes me like these Maybelline Lip Polishes even more. 🙂
The pigmentation is great for a lip gloss. Its not opaque but not sheer as well. People with slightly pigmented lips wouldn’t face any problem but for heavily pigmented lips it may not come out so well. I would recommend the deeper shades (something like Glam 6 ) for you. If you can spare some extra time then go ahead and buy any shade you like. Just make sure you wear a nude lip liner beneath. It would hide your lip pigmentation also adding in more hours of wear to the gloss. 😉
This is how Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 looks on me. 🙂
My Rating: 4 out of 5
Maybelline Lip Polish Glam 9 is a beautiful peachy pink with very fine golden shimmer that would best suit medium to fair complexions. Maybelline Lip Polishes are absolutely worth every penny you spend on them. The formula is great. Creamy, non sticky and lasts for a decent 3 hours. With summer just around the corner I would highly recommend you to try this semi-sheer tube of absolute peachy delight- Glam 9. I am definitely picking more. 😉
