Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint
Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint Collection has 8 fabulous colors and today I have two to show you – Stripped Down and Violet Rebel.
By the first look of it, if you haven’t guessed, these are high gloss lip colors (if that makes any sense) and pack a punch of color! The formula is so intense, that you need a tiny drop of the color to fill the lips. And for a change, these come in a tube style with the cushion on the tip which I think is pretty fancy!
Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint delivers shocking color and shine.
It amps up the intensity with 8x more pigment in every drop and the vibrant lip paint glides on to deliver a jolt of intense color.
How to use/apply –
Apply the flocked tip precision applicator to the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth. Glide across the entire bottom lip.

Here’s what Stripped Down and Violet Rebel look on lips –
What I love –
- Its packaging is fancy
- It has a vanilla fruity scent
- It keeps the lips soft and hydrated
- It doesn’t settle in fine lines
- Its texture is luxurious
- Its finish is flawless
- A tiny amount of product is enough to fill the lips
What I don’t Love –
- It smudges easily
- It needs a lip liner
- It needs a lip brush to apply
- Its cushion tip absorbs a lot of product (if not being careful)
As much as I loved the fancy packaging and all, the cushion tip is a bummer for me! First time I ended up squeezing a lot of product than required and in no time saw that the tip has absorbed. If not careful, the product can end pretty fast!
And since it, an intense gloss (and with summer just around the corner) using a matching or a slightly darker lip liner seems to give better results. And if you don’t want product wastage, using a lip brush to fill in the lips seems to do the trick.
However, using the cushion tip definitely gives a flawless application. It also means the right amount of product is applied on lips and rest is back on cushion tip!
And like always using a lip liner helps. It not only protects the gloss from smudging, it also gives the précised application too.
Unfortunately, just like any other gloss, it smudges. But here’s the trick!
Dab a tissue over the lips to turn this intense gloss into semi-matte!
(Using fingertips also seems to give similar effect)
And like always, I tried mixing these two colors and got a beautiful lavender blush pink color. Here’s how it looks –
As much as I complain about smudging, these colors have an amazing formula and finish. Wish these were convenient to buy!
