Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick Dusky Mauve Review, Swatches, LOTD

Today, I will be sharing Dusky Mauve shade of Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipsticks which I bought on a tempting Buy 2 get 1 offer. I have already reviewed Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick-Cranberry.


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.

Ingredients:- It’s there on the packaging printed over the plastic sealing cover. But the letters are too small to be read without digging eyes into the paper, so just ignore.


Price:- Rs.220 for 4gm

Shelf Life:-  30 months from the Mfg date.

My experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick-Dusky Mauve:-


  1. Dusky Mauve is a lovely brown toned light plum shade. It looks more like a light brown lipstick in the bullet but comes as a soft mauvish-pink color on lips. The brown tones in the lipstick cut down the bright tinge of colors and give a very natural looking pinkish tone to the lips.
  2. Personally, I don’t like layering my lips with loud purple/plum shades which makes them pop but Dusky Mauve as the name suggests isn’t a bright lip color. It is kind of pastel plum shade which suits me well.
  3. It has super buttery texture which makes the bullet glides smoothly over the lips. The texture is bliss for dry lips for its highly moisturizing formula.
  4. It also provides decent coverage to the lips in a single swipe. I love the nice semi-glossy finish it renders to the lips.
  5. I am not very happy with the longevity of the lip color. As it fades off easily within 2-3 hours of application and doesn’t leave any tint of color behind but I like that it make my lips go dry and chapped
  6. Coming to the packaging which is sturdy metallic case in brown signifying the color family of the lip color. However, I feel the color of the case is slightly confusing and a pink or plum colored case would have given a better idea about the shade of the bullet.

Pros of Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick-Dusky Mauve:-

  1. Value for money
  2. Silky soft texture
  3. Moisturizing to the lips
  4. Decently pigmented
  5. Has a faint bitter almond smell

Cons of Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick-Dusky Mauve:-

  1. Transferability and low staying-power of the lip stick but I am not complaining for the shade and the price tag it comes with

Recommendation:- Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick-Dusky Mauve is a lovely mauvishh-pink shade with super creamy texture. If you want to give a break to your regular peachy-pink MLBB shades than try this soft mauve pink shade. It is a universal shade which will suit everyone with any type of skin tone and will look equally beautiful at day as well as night time. I am very happy with this shade and the smooth shiny finish it provides to my lips. I am able to pull-off this shade with such an ease that it has fallen into my most used lipsticks list.


Rating:- 3.9/5
