Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious Review, Swatches, LOTD

Maybelline has launched its Jewel collection in the Color Sensational lipstick range few months back in India. I have been waiting eagerly to get my hands on these and finally made it with my Maybelline Shopping Haul. I got two shades from this vibrant lip color collection Rubylicious and Berry Brilliant. It was hard to say to no other shades which were as beautiful as these but they have to wait a bit more.

Maybelline Color Sensational Range has already been a major hit and I have tried only nude or peachy/brown toned lipsticks from that collection.

Now as winters are here, its time to welcome these bright beauties in my lipstick stash. I am starting with Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious today.


Product Claims:

  • ILLUMINATED COLOR only from our deep jewelucent pigments.
  • CREAMIER FEEL only from our nourishing honey nectar
  • A captivating jewel collection in 8 deeply provocative shades

Direction for Use:-Apply your lipstick by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Repeat the technique on your lower lip.


Shades Available

  1. 82 Refined Wine,
  2. 143 Pink Tou Praline,
  3. 591 Amethyst Ablaze,
  4. 630 Rubylicious,
  5. 631 Red Garnet
  6. 994 Fuchsia Crystal,
  7. 996 Berry Brilliant


Price:- Rs. 350 for 3.7 gms

Shelf Life:- 3  years from the Mfg date.

Packaging:- The lipstick comes in a shiny silver bullet holder covered with a vibrant pink cap in jeweled finish. The packaging is similar to the Color Sensational lip sticks but with a spectacular cap makes the case looks really pretty.


My experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious:-


Shade:- Rubylicious is an upbeat red with deep pink tones and hint of plums. I was happy to see that it doesn’t have any shimmers in the name of jewels. It appears to be a beautiful red lip color in the bullet but on lips it looks pinkier and stains to a bright pinkish- red shade.

Formula :- Just like Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks, Jewels Collections also has soft creamy texture which glides like butter on lips. Absolutely smooth and applying the color evenly. But I do feel that Maybelline has improved the formula with the Jewels collection as Rubylicious feels much lighter on lips compared to any of the regular Color Sensational lipsticks.


Pigmentation:- The color pay-off is just awesome. It goes almost opaque in a single swipe and coverage and color can be builded up with multiple swipe. Due to its light texture it doesn’t look cakey even after multiple swipes. Lips appear smoother and shinier with each swipe.



Wearability:- The lipsticks are creamy and glides effortlessly over lips and even driest lips wouldn’t need to wear a lip balm underneath. The formula is slightly moisturizing much like a hydrating lipstick but that doesn’t bring down its staying power. The lipstick stays good for 4-5 easily with snacks in between but the life can be dramatically increases if worn as a stain first and then followed by a swipe of the lipstick bullet. Even after meals it leaves a significant pinkish-red stain on lips. The stain would go only with a creamy cleanser or a makeup remover.

Pros of Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious:-

  1. Soft creamy Texture
  2. Intensely Pigmented
  3. Gives even coverage in single swipe
  4. Buildable formula which doesn’t look cakey and feels light on lips
  5. Doesn’t flakes neither settles into fine lines
  6. Light Caramel fragrance but isn’t bothersome
  7. Decently Priced
  8. Beautiful packaging

Cons of Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious:-

  1. Bleeds slightly after meals but that can be taken care of easily by locking it with a lip liner

Recommendation:- Maybelline Color Sensational Jewels Lipstick – Rubylicious is a gorgeous bright pink based red lip color which gives a creamy and little shinier finish to lips. The hydrating and intensely pigmented formula makes lips appear smoother( absolutely delicious). Can be worn on its own but looks best when worn as a stain (apply the lipstick and kiss a tissue to get rid of excess and you are done). Top it up with a gloss to get luscious Red lips. The staying power is hands down the best than any of lipsticks I have tried with this creamy formula. The pretty pink stain it leaves behind lips even after 6 hours of wear makes this a must have for festive season parties!

If you dare wear such bright color go ahead and get these Jewels, if not wear them as a stain and enjoy.! Highly Recommended!
