To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered Chilli Nude, Clay Crush and Touch of Spice from the seller. When I received the products, apart from Touch of Spice, both the other lipsticks have Chinese letters in the label at the bottom. I do understand that some cosmetics are manufactured in China and they might have the sentence "Made in China" written in it. But this was different. The lipsticks even smelled very different. They had a different smell compared to the Touch of Spice lipstick, which was original. I complained to Amazon and they gave me replacements for the shades Chilli Nude and Clay Crush. When I received it the second time, they sent the exact same fake Clay Crush lipstick again and the Chilli Nude shade had a very different packaging with mirror on the top. I complained again to Amazon and they gave me a refund. The Amazon customer service was really good. But I am not at all satisfied with the seller. Fake cosmetics which have not gone through proper testing might be very bad for skin and can cause infection. Taking about the lipstick, Touch of Spice, it is a beautiful product. The colour and texture is amazing for the price. I have dry lips and hence I have to apply a lip balm under it even though the lipstick is creamy. But I am very satisfied with the product.
I bought "on the mauve" with the expectation of it being a cream, as advertised. It actually is a frost/shimmer. Was very disappointed. Can't return due to Amazon's policies. I usually love maybelline lipsticks, but I'll make sure I am positive about the finish next time.
Though the price is really good. It has a good creamy texture too but the color is unexpectedly bad. I believe it will not suit anyone at all!! It has a blunt, faded, icy, lightest balm-like color which is in no way near 'on the mauve' color!
THIS IS THE PINKIEST PINK. THE COLOR IS NOWHERE AS SHOWN. IF YOU LIKE TEEN PINK LIPSTICK, NO NEUTRAL THIS IS THE COLOR FOR YOU. I HAVE FAIR SKIN, SO COLORS ARE USUALLY ACCURATE. THIS IS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. I GUESS YOU DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND THEN GET STUCK WITH.
