My Experience

I must say all 12 shades of Maybelline Color Sensational® High Shine Gloss  are totally vibrant and appealing. I received a lovely super red color called ‘gleaming grenadine’.

I like how the gloss applies, as I don’t find it sticky in the slightest. The pigmentation is sheer to buildable, the bold red shade being on the slightly more darker side.

The “Maybelline” website describes these lipglosses having a Cleaner Shine which actually is the perfect description. It adds a nice subtle glossy red shade to my lips, which is totally wearable! This is the kind of lipgloss you would probably need to reapply, but I think most of us would agree that a lot of glossy products need to be re applied, due to the texture.

lipgloss review

  1. with one coat
  2. with 2 coats
  3. after 2 hours
  4. after drinking water and eating
  5. after 4 hours
  6. After 7 hours

PS : I’m not wearing any lip liner or lipstick ! Just the gloss.

It feels super moisturizing on the lips and has pretty decent lasting power, I can say 4-5 hrs. I also find my lips feeling quite nice and silky when wearing this gloss, which is a nice little bonus 😉

The gloss does transfer a lot, I can notice that when I was drinking water and when I was eating. But then we can’t complain much most of the glosses do that 🙁

I wear this shade when I want just a shiny bold look. Overall this lipgloss is very smooth, not sticky and  moisturizing. Feels so nice on the lips and make my lips look plump and younger. Want to try all colors from this range 😉


Color : Gleaming grenadine is a super red color. Looks best if worn with a red lip liner or a red lipstick.
Texture/ Finish : Coming to the texture, it’s a highly viscous, creamy gloss which does not bleed at all. They have a high glossy finish with a slightly tacky formula that allows them to adhere to lipsticks for a longer wear of at least four hours. The consistency is in the middle of being thicker and thin so they aren’t gooey nor are they super heavy but just right.
Pigmentation : Gleaming Grenadine looks quite red in the tube but more sheer corally red on my lips. I always love those lip glosses which can be worn on their own, sadly this shade is not super pigmented but that’s ok since its not a liquid lipstick. You may need a lip liner and 2-3 coats for a perfect red lip look.
Staying Power : It stays on me for a good 4-5 hours without drinking or eating and leaves a tint on my lips which I love.

What I Like ? 🙂 🙂

  • High shine and micro shimmers.
  • Stays on 4 hours. I find it fair for a lip gloss.
  • It does not dry my lips.
  • It’s absolutely fragrance free with mild fruity taste.
  • Beautiful red color.
  • 100 % wax free.
  • Can be worn alone.
  • Does not irritate lips.

What I didn’t Like ? 🙁 🙁
• It does transfer.
• List of ingredients unavailable.

Final Verdict : Heads up lipgloss fans you’re going to love the new Maybelline High Shine gloss !
