PROJECT HIDDEN JEWELS: Maybelline Colorsensational Crazy for Coffee Lipstick

I seem to have the attention span of a flea (why a flea, I don't know) but the point is that I seem to lose track of the reviews that I promise and the projects I intend to start. Such a short memory span.
So here is reviving a project that was supposed to have started months ago. Project Hidden Jewels.(Click here to read the first post talking about this)
To bring you up to speed, the idea was to dig up some products that I had forgotten about or never used and use them. More importantly use them in a way that would make me want to use them more often. As I am on a spending ban, I have decided to revive the project. 
This first product that I present to you is a Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Crazy for Coffee.

How did I ever forget about this lipstick!! I don't know. it is a really really pretty lipstick.
It is a very pretty brown with a hint of peach.Creamy finish and glides on so smoothly.

What I love most is that it gives a really natural look to the lips.
I use it like a nude lipsitck. Sometimes I pair it with a gloss. 
This lasts for about 3-4 hours and there isn't even a stain left behind once you have had a heavy meal. But the price of 350 INR, I am not complaining.
It looks great with smoky eyes or even just kajal and the Maybelline Cheeky Glow blush.
You can amp it if you like by adding a bright coloured lip gloss. This acts as a nice base.

What I like about this product:

  • The Price- 350INR. affordable
  • Smooth to apply.
  • Lovely everyday wear kind of colour
  • Doesn't settle in the fines lines. 
  • Has a satiny finish.
  • It isn't drying.
  • It isn't matte.

What I don't like:

  • It doesn't last for more than 3-4 hours. 
Swatch of Crazy for Coffee.

Tip: To create a rosy lip I like to dab Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 6 over this lipstick.
With Maybelline Lip Polish over it.

Have you used this shade? I feel like it is a beautiful shade that isn't given much attention. Do you have any shades that you feel are neglected?
