Maybelline Lip Smooth Color & Care Dolly Rose

Maybelline India is launching a new product soon! Yay!
Why I'm telling you all is coz I am loving the product....a lot! I was actually going to review it last week but I thought...hmm, why review another product that's not available in India?

I'm talking about the Lip Smooth Color & Care.

I picked out  Dolly Rose on the first day when I was in KL. Actually I put Cranberry & Cherry too in my basket at Watson's, then my hubby looked at me incredulously and said, "Why are you shopping as though we're leaving tomorrow?" 
I felt silly and kept the other two back and then later I got distracted by other stuff to remember. So, now I regret not getting them, coz I am addicted to the one I got.

Moral of the story: Never ever listen to your husband/a man when you're shopping! :\

Dolly Rose

Maybelline Lip Smooth Color & Care is one of my favorite lip balms. Moisturizing, glossy and smells pretty darn good. No, no sweet taste, if you hate that.

Dolly Rose is a pretty pinkish shade which shows up kinda MLBB (My Lips But Better) on my lips.
I can't wait to get Cranberry and Cherry now!

I don't remember how much I bought it for, but i'm guessing it will be cheaper in India. Not more than Rs.200-250 I guess. Edit: Rs.99 :)

  1. looks really pretty and moisturizing...

    and i think u learnt the husband thing pretty late :P
    but the way u shop it is good u delayed the learning process.

    Waiting for the product to be here...yeeeeee!!!

  2. Anamika~ Haha...ya I guess


  3. Wow, waiting for these to be launched here.. They sound amazing!

  4. oh no....

    are u bound to tempt endlessly...i want them all..esp the sound of jam n all is making me drool

  5. YAY!! I hope it comes out this year. I love maybelline and I'm definitely gonna get all 3:P

  6. Uhhh this product looks pretty! Yes!
    I want find it in Italy!!!

  7. you even keep tempting me;) i live in a small town in Pakistan with no access to drugstore or any original good quality makeup here.your posts make me wanna travel to Lahore and check these products out :P
    I am sure we will get these too maybe in next few months

  8. Husbands and boyfriends will never understand why we need to shop for makeup as soon as we hit another country!

    When I leave England and go on holiday, I go mad in Duty Free and he has to point out that we can get this stuff outside the airport, but I don't care!

    It's the same when we are on the aeroplane, you can buy the Duty Free they have online but I will be damned if I don't buy something whilst on the plane!

    They looks nice but we have nothing like that in the UK, boo!

  9. Rhamnousia~ Haha...I know what u mean. I feel the same way :D

    Sarah~ hope u get it girl


  10. Hope u gals like it as much as I do :)


  11. It reminded (the packaging) of Nivea lip balms, you have reviewed. But I am sure it's a lot different than that because of the words you've put here.

  12. My ex would always be like why are you buying so much make-up? Like dude, I am not asking YOU to pay for it. Just walk along :P
    My gay friend is always makes me indulge in over-shopping. He very well knows he is not paying for it.
    My dad always discourages me to shop but eventually gives in after many tries and eventually me giving him my scary, i'm not talking to you anymore look :P
    My mom is the sweetest when traveling. She buys me whatever I want.
    My girlfriends get me make-up for my birthday/other presents.
    MORAL OF THE STORY: MEN SUCK when it comes to make-up shopping. Especially the "better" (lol) half kinds.

  13. AOYV~ lol...yup yup. So sweet of yr mom! ^.^

    Jiya~ Kinda similar, yes. But like u said very different :)


  14. I like ur moral -the best of all ;)

  15. Hi Cynthia!

    Thanks for a doin a review on this! It's amazing! I picked up dolly rose too...and it's beautiful!
    Although I wouldn't recommend the "Red Rose"'s not different from dolly rose in colour or fragrance.

  16. Hi Steff, thanks! I won't be getting that then. I find they all smell almost the same

    Aarthi- :D



I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
