Which Red Lip Gloss To Choose? Loreal or Maybelline?

If I was told to choose only one lip shade for the rest of my life, I would choose red without even thinking for a second. I love red lip color that much! So, recently Maybelline and Loreal Paris launched their lip glosses and this was quite obvious that I would hunt for the red ones at first and then any other shade! So, among 15 Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polishes, I chose POP6 and among Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Colors, I picked up Juliette! Now, both are red lip colors and if you have not yet decided which one you would prefer, take a look downwards.

Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color: Dazzling shine fresh moisture light-weight lip color.
The 1st lip color to fuse with your lips: rich refined color yet a barely-there lip sensation. Lips feel feel cocooned in a fresh, dewy sensation. The modern day to play your lip color.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish: 
A Trio of Concentrates:
Potent Color Extracts: Pure saturated color pigments that provide deep intense color like a lipstick.
Concentrated Liquid Balm: Moisturizing Liquid Conditioning Balm gets the lips ready for intensely Rich color. Gives a soft Cushiony feel & care to the lips.
Glossy Shine Serum: Built-in glossy top-coat, that makes lips look fuller and more luscious.
Specially designed Leaf-shaped applicator which makes application quick and precise.

Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette v/s Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6:

Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color- Rs. 499.
Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish- Rs. 450.


Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette is a coral red lip color. The shade is quite vibrant and appealing. It has a pure red stain with a orange tone to it.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6 is a bright red shade with pink undertones. It is not blood red or dark red shade, neither coral red. The shade looks quite vibrant and eye catching in original.


Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette gives a glossy finish, which does not actually looks or feels like a lip gloss. It is very light weight on the lips, and feels like a high in moisture lipstick.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6 gives a super glossy finish, it also feels little bit heavy on the lips. If you see the swatches, you could see it also has glitter particle in it which makes it look very shiny and glowing.


Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette is very much pigmented. 2-3 swipes of the applicator delivers a nice coverage on the lips. It sits on the lips like a lipstick and does not bleed. But, the problem of it's good pigmentation is it leaves stain on the lips.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6 is average in pigmentation. Also, it gives a patchy look if not carefully applied. Because of its consistency, it tends to slip away from its place and creates blank patches. It leaves very mild staining.

Staying Power:
Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette stays on my lips for about 6 hours at a stretch. It does not bleed or fades until I eat.

Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6 stays hardly for 3-4 hours, and it also bleeds and gives patchy look after sometime. After 4 hours, the glossy and shiny finish fades away, but the stain stays like a tinted lip balm.

The Comparison:

Well, according to shade, I liked Maybelline as it has pinkish tone to it which looks quite good on almost every Indian skin tone. Pigmentation is better in Loreal Paris and I also liked its finish. If you want a glossy and shiny finish, go for Maybelline. As per staying power, Loreal wins.

On My Lips:

Looks like pink in picture, right?

My Rating: (in comparison as Red Lip Gloss)

Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Juliette- 4.3/5.
Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6- 4/5.

Final Words:

If you are medium to fair Indian beauty, you can choose any of these two according to your choice. But if you have dusky skin tone, and you must buy any of these, I would recommend Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish POP6.
