Now that we got the review of Maybelline Shine Shot Glassy Shine Topcoat and Prismatic Lip Topcoat out of the way we can move on to Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint! Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint is a new pigmented lip color (or liquid lipstick should you like to call it that) that launched with the Maybelline Summer 2016 Collection.
Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint will likely get likened to OCC Lip Tar across many reviews that you’ll be reading but personally, I think the formula is ten times better than Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics! OCC is a bit difficult to work with (well, not as much as it was when it was in a tube! The OCC RTW Lip Tar reboot definitely makes things easier) and tends to migrate plus the thicker formula isn’t for everyone. Maybelline brings the same great color pay off as OCC’s formula but in a thinner, easier to use formula that doesn’t migrate and isn’t difficult to apply in the least.
I love these and I highly urge you to run out and grab a few or all the shades! You won’t be disappointed.
Pigmented lip colors like Color Jolt are all the rage this season. E.L.F. just recently introduced a line of very inexpensive Lip Lacquers in a range of pigmented formula that’s quite resemble Lip Tars! I think Color Jolt are a real testimony to how modern, hip, and up to date Maybelline is on makeup trends. Beauty trends can be a little slow getting to the drugstore as most mid to high end brands seem to have first dibs on the latest and greatest trends. But Maybelline continues to churn out very exciting releases and on trend makeup and beauty that’s way ahead of many of the drugstore makeup world’s typical game.
I’ve used, I own, and I really enjoy Lip Tars but if I had to choose, the Color Jolt formula would easily replace it!
Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint come housed in a 0.21 oz squeeze tube with an attached sponge applicator for application. I’m sad and delighted with the packaging. I’m sad because I think some people will pass up on the product because they don’t love the attached applicator. And I’m personally delighted because I find the applicator is key at getting the color applied smoothly, evenly, and perfectly. But I do realize most people get kind of squeaked out by the idea of an applicator that can be removed and easily washed! Personally, I just wipe it off after each use. The packaging does resemble a compact version of Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick!
I don’t how, I won’t ask questions, but this formula is perfect. It applies perfect and it looks flawless with each and every single use. The formula is thick but thinner than the OCC formula with an easy, smooth glide across my drier lips. It does remind me of the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick but not nearly as thick! It applies smoothly, evenly, and flawlessly with the slanted sponge applicator. Simply squeeze the tube, a small amount flows into the tip of the applicator, and apply! The color is pigmented on a single stroke and only gets bolder with each application. You can build very easily should you like without the fear of the product going sticky, tacky, or flaking up. No matter how much you apply the color remains smooth and quite weightless with a very creamy, lightly hydrating consistency that’s pleasant and comfortable to wear. I had no issues with color migrating nor did color every dry out or look less than smooth through the 6 hour wear time. Initially there’s a slight shine that wears away after about three hours. I’m actually unsure what I’d call the finish, it’s a creamy satin with slight shine finish! For the most part, I’d call this a cream formula. The pigment is obvious that of a lipstick so, the actually formula could be dubbed a liquid lipstick of sorts. A single swipe yields rich, bold opaque color pay off. There is a slight fruity flavor and fragrance that tastes somewhat like watermelon which hangs around for a little while after application. I didn’t mind the flavor at all but it could be a problem for sensitive users.
All in all, Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint is an outstanding lip product! Beautiful color, gorgeous, easy to wear and apply formula, and a lovely little price tag make these a total win.
