6 Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Swatches (India Launch)
|Pic was from Maybelline website. Cropped, edited, collaged by me.|
We generally have to wait a lot for Maybelline products. After the whole world has tried, tested and awarded a product, we get to see its face. We must be real special for them as they only want us to get the tried and tested stuff *sarcasm*
Anyways this year for a change Maybelline decided to launch a lot of products (So what the NewU SA told me turned out to be right!). Some genius in the company who definely knows a lot has decided to launch only 6 shades out of the 12 shades as the genius might have realized color variations in India is not much *more sarcasm*
Of the 6 shades we can choose from, the awesome SAs either try to force u to make you more fair or darker than your actual color (I can name 10 people who were forced by SA to take a lighter shade and look FAIR! I am sure this has happened to others as well). Some SA have too much attitute to serve you and others are just pushing you stuffs (I challange you to do makeup shopping in Kolkata if you have experienced it in NCR). I was discussing all this with Swarnali today and realized what a boon online shopping have been. So to assist you to find your shade - here it it!
(I am in too much of talking mood today so excuse the whole lot of blah blah blah)
Swatches of Shades Launched in India
Light 1 Porcelain Ivory
Light 3.5 N*de Beige
Light 4 N*de
Light 5 Creamy Natural
Medium 1 Sandy Beige
Medium 4 Honey Beige
I am around NC30 at this time. For me the color suggested was 4 for my yellowish skin tone. I would have been 5 if I was of warmed undertone.
These swatches are done very thick so take the lighter version of the one required as per the swatches here. I think you can calibrate with my skin and the variation.
Even Loreal has a new range (see those red cap ones in the background?). As per the SA, those are better, sweatproof and long lasting than this one.
Those who have read the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder Unifying Powder Review might have guessed that I have not got any for me.
