Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick – Buff B42 Review, Swatches, LOTD

I was not in a mood to invest more in Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipsticks range but just then I came across this gorgeous shade and I didn’t mind shelling out Rs.250 for this lovely color.

So, here is my review on another lipstick from Maybelline Haul and this time it’s Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in shade Buff B42.


Product Claims: Fall in love with color, all over again: Crisp Color from pure color pigments

  • Creamy Feel, with a built in lip balm
  • SPF 15 for sun protection
  • 16 Captivating Shades

Direction for Use:- Expert Tip:- Apply your lipstick by starting in the center of your lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip for a gorgeously perfect finish.



Price:- Rs.250 for gm

Shelf Life:- 30 months from the Mfg date.


Packaging:- The lipstick comes in a standard Moisture Extreme Lipsticks packaging. The simple metallic brown case indicating the color family of the lipstick (contradictory it belong to pink but never mind!)  secures the bullet. The best part of the packaging is that cap shuts perfectly tight and would come out on its own.


My experience with Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick – Buff:-

Buff is a soft rosy pink shade with muted coral tones and isn’t bright or Fuchsia at all. I took it to be somewhat a toned down version of Bronze orange but to my surprise Buff doesn’t even have any Orange undertone and is purely a pink lipstick  


Formula:- The texture is soft and extremely creamy just like any other moisture extreme lipstick. These Moisture Extreme lippies feels super-soft on lip and glides like silk over them. It makes lips appear soft and supple and also keeps the lips nourished with their rich moisturizing formula.


Color Pay Off:-The well pigmented formula provides opaque coverage and I just need a single swipe of bullet to get enough color on the lips. The intensity of the color can be builded but it might look cakey with multiple swipes so go easy. The creamy formula gives a rich creamy shine to the lips which I like.



Staying:- I wasn’t expecting it to last more than 3 hours on me but to my surprise it left a faint pink stain on lips. The staying power is better than the other lipsticks from the same range I own (Cranberry, Dusky Mauve, Coral Pink) The creamy formula causes the lip color bleed slightly after meals but that can be solved with a lip liner to seal off the color.



Pros of Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick – Buff:-

  1. Very wearable pink shade
  2. Smooth creamy texture
  3. Moisturizing and takes care of dry lips well
  4. Well pigmented
  5. Decent staying power
  6. Sturdy and travel friendly packaging
  7. Suitable for all skin tones
  8. Reasonably priced
  9. Wide shade selection

Cons of Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick – Buff:-

  1. Boring and misleading color case (The lipstick is purely pink but the casing is brown)
  2. Bleeds slightly due to creamy texture

Recommendation:- Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick – Buff appears pinkish brown in the bullet but comes up as a pretty rosy pink coral shade on lips. It has incredibly soft texture and moisturizing formula. It provides complete coverage to my lips in not more than 2 coats and imparts a beautiful creamy finish to them. Surprisingly, it stays longer on me and somehow survives the meals and leaves a light pink stain on lips. The color pairs up beautifully with heavy eye makeup and give a natural looking pink color to the lips. Highly Recommended!




Rating:- 3.9/5
