Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick My Mahogany


I never thought a shade like Maybelline Color Sensational 'My Mahogany' would look good on me (you know I'm so stuck in my pink ways*), but when I first wore it, I was so impressed I have been wearing it almost everyday ever since. When applied sparingly, it looks 'my lips but warmer' on me, so if you have a warmer/darker skin tone than mine, look no further coz this might just be your 'My Lips But Better' lippie.

My Mahogany is a warm nude shade with peach undertones. It has the same sweet caramel fragrance like all the other MCS lippies, which I have never had a problem with.

255 My Mahogany



It looks more peachy in natural daylight, but with yellow light indoors, it looks very natural. I'm always wearing neutral eye makeup (read: Naked) & bronzer these days, so this is the lipstick I reach for every time. If it looks good on me, it'll look good on anybody.

Dupe? I had a feeling I have tried a shade like this in MAC before, and after some sniffing around, I think it looks similar to MAC Cosmo Lipstick. See Karla Sugar's swatch of it here and decide for yourself. 

Price ~ Rs.299.00.
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4.5/5

  14. i bought this just 2 days back... and mostly because rima praises it so much and i just loved it on me.... cz, you have cosmo na? can u pls do a comparison? cosmo has been on my to buy list and i almost picked it up the other day (the SA made me buy studio fix instead)

    but when i wore this, it looked very similar to cosmo...

    GGG- Really??!! haha...it deserves it

    mitha-Will do that sometime, although it can't get any better than Maybelline here in India. But Lakme probably has a shade like it.

  20. Oh I really like this. Definitely seems like it'd be a MLBB shade for me

  21. I agree with you that MAC Cosmo is a dupe of My Mahagony [or vice-versa]. I was craving for this but unfortunately when I tried it on my lips it looked like a plain lip balm :( so I didn't get this one. Surprisingly Cosmo shows on my lips !!!

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! :)
