Maybelline Volume XL Seduction Plumping Lipcolor in Mischievous Mauve: Review and Swatches

Post by Apoorva
Hey people

This is my first post on Divassence. And I am already excited 😀 Thanks Deepika for the super duper opportunity 🙂

Here I go with one of my favourite lipstick review 🙂

Price: $9; approximately 500 INR
Quantity: 3.2gms

What the Company Claims: Ladies, you no longer have to long for full, plump lips! Maybelline Volume XL Seduction Plumping Lip Gloss is infused with collagen to plump up your lips and give you the full pout you’ve always wanted. Find your shade today!

Made in USA!

Product Details: Collagen formula with active amplifiers stimulates circulation making your lips plumper. Plump up your lips, up to 30% more!


Shade: This lipstick is in shade 220 Mischievous Mauve. I chose this because I am pretty new to lipsticks,so I stick to the basics. Hence, most of my lipsticks/ lip colors will be in Nudes or Mauves and chocolate shades(as I have little pigmented lips) 😀
Package: The product comes in a thick plastic container and with metal finishing inside. Quite appealing I especially like the metal thing inside.
My Experience: Most of us want to have plump lips and I am no exception. And this lipstick is for one such purpose. Yes, it is formulated to create the plump. Without the use of the injections or anything else.
The lipstick is pigmented. Covers the uneven tone of my lips. With single swipe it gives you an intense shine and fullness. Swipe it twice; you end up in an awesome mauve shade which I feel complements any type of skin tone. I am sure, coz I’m dusky still the lipstick suites me. 🙂

Well, I am quite happy with the product.(Look at the pics, you will understand :P)

As soon as you apply it on your lips, it gives you slight burning sensation. Tingling and some kind of itchiness. It is due to the ingredients present in it.
Apply it normally on your lips and wait for few minutes and you will get to see the product working.Swatch:

  • It instantly gives you fuller lips without strain. It is travel friendly.
  • The color stays for 3-4 hours and the plump will be on for 2hours.
  • So many shades to choose from.
  • Not drying.
  • Fills the fine lines.
I can barely find any, but if you insist, then it might be, the availability and the price.

I might complain on the availability but this brand has released so many other products in this series :)And I don’t recommend this to people who have sensitive lips. (Note from the site: This product may cause a temporary tingling sensation which is normal. Discontinue use if you experience excessive discomfort. Do not use on chapped, damaged or sensitive lips.)Ed’s Note: Wish these were available in India!! hrrummphh!!! Lovely Lip swatches Apoorva!!
