Here’s the last in my trio of Maybelline product reviews! As someone who’s never been a massive lip gloss person, here’s a review of one of the new Maybelline Lifter Glosses in the shade Moon.
Here’s what they claim;
This breakthrough formula with Hyaluronic Acid visibly smoothes lip surface and enhances lip contour with high shine for hydrated, fuller-looking, plumped lips. Plus, its XL wand transforms lips in an easy, one swipe application. This hydrating lip gloss is available in a full range of modern shades, like Pearl, Ice, Amber, Topaz, Crystal and more. Apply it for a hydrating, glossy shine and fuller, plumping look.

Packaging & Price
At £8.99 a pop they’re relatively in the middle of the range when it comes to drugstore lip option and in line with the rest of Maybelline’s lip options. The packaging is this big, chunky clear plastic bottle with a nude lid. Overall I quite like the packaging, but it does feel a little chunky and so takes up quite a lot of space in your makeup bag!
There are 8 shades in total. From the shade Ice (which is a clear/white based glosh) through a whole selection of various nudes. Honestly I often get a number of shades to review when it comes to a lip option… but it just didn’t feel worth it! Not only do I not wear lip gloss often, but most of the shades look the same!
I have the shade Moon, which is a sheer peachy pink lipgloss with almost a gold reflective glitter in it
First thing to say is this is not pumping at all. So if you’re expecting this to make your lips tingle, then you’ll be disappointed. But if you don’t like that (which is where I stand), then you’ll probably prefer it. It’s one of those sticky lipglosses that you feel on your lips and your hair gets stuck to it. And while it’s not drying, and it does make your lips look juicy, it’s just too heavy…. and then it wipes off after an hour. And I know a lot of lip glosses are like this, but I have certainly tried better lip glosses (I see you Max Factor)…
I mean, I’m sure you’re getting this vibe from this review, but this is not for me. I don’t like to feel like I’m wearing a lip product (unless it’s a balm)… and I also don’t really want my lips to rub off in an hour! But I’m also not a fan of lip glosses, so I’m also not surprised!

I really didn’t get on with it! x
Eh, lipglosses are so hit and miss! When they work well, they’re my absolute favourite . . . but way too many are meh like this one sounds. Great review! x
Oh my god I know! I really want to try the Fenty ones! x
I love the packaging of this product. I used to love my lipglosses, but since COVID i’ve not been wearing any makeup at all.
That’s totally fair! x
Hey! Do you have a contact form? I would love tonget in contact with you 😍
Hey! My email address is email@example.com xx
Thank you xx
Aah such a shame that it isn’t for you, it looks such a lovely shade. But I guess everyone has different preferences of wjat they like and dislike:)
Oh 100%, we can’t all like the same things for sure! x
At 30 yo, I have literally learned to wear lipsticks not too long ago (I KNOW) but there is nothing I can do still for lipglosses, I just can’t deal with them – so this was my kind of review for sure!
hahah! Glad it’s not just me!
I have such a love/hate with lipglosses so I totally understand where you are coming from. It’s a nice colour, hopefully it is knocking about in a lipstick somewhere.
I’m sure it’s out there somewhere! x
I got them after everyone said it’s a Fenty Beauty dupe but I personally think the Fenty glosses are better. However, I don’t hate this gloss and it is a great drugstore/affordable option. But I’m a gloss lover so I think that’s why I’m easily satisfied lol.

That’s totally fair! I’ve always wanted to try the Fenty one, but I’m a little nervous because I’m not usually a gloss person! x
Lip glosses are one of those things which are so hit and miss, I don’t usually buy them as they’re just messy and my hair always gets attached to my lips when I have worn it in the past! x

I tend to avoid them too tbf! x
I quite like this shade, it’s pretty similar to the Fenty one but I prefer the Fenty overall x
I really want to try the Fenty one! x
I have to say I wasn’t sure about the shade of this one. Also lip glosses can be a bit of a hit or miss. I hate feeling like my lips are sticky and when they come off super quick and I have to keep reapplying it can be really annoying. From your review I don’t think I would particularly like this lip-gloss either.
I’ve never been much of a lip gloss person! x
That looks like a beautiful lip color. Thanks for sharing your review of this product.
No problem! Thanks for reading xx
I’ve seen these glosses mentioned a lot lately but like you when I looked up the shades I thought a number of them looked similar. I have been enjoying lip glosses with a bit shimmer as lip toppers recently and there’s a handful from Fenty, Colourpop and Makeup Revolution I love! None of these tingle and the formula is comfortable xx
Ooo good to know! Thanks for the recommendations! xx
The Maybelline lip gloss looks cute! It is great that it is super affordable, and you get your money’s worth. The shade you got looks cute! Love the shimmer! It is a bummer that you didn’t enjoy the lip gloss as much – I am with you about glosses in general. At least you still gave it a try!

Got to try everything at least once right?! ahah x
These products look lovely! I always love how honest your reviews are as I like to read something real than too over the top positive xx
Awww thanks! Yeah, I try to only be over the top positive if I’m really loving a product! x
I’m not too much of a fan of lip gloss too but I did like the Fenty lip glosses. The color you reviews moon reminded me of the fenty lipgloss color it’s shame that it rubs off so quickly.
I really want to try the Fenty ones! x
it is more nice if you dont apply make up so that the natural beauty will be seen but it sometimes required to apply make up especially in the work
That’s totally fair! x
That’s a beautiful shade! Too bad it doesn’t last long!
It’s such a pretty shade! x
I love lip glosses & the shade is pretty, but this one doesn’t seem worth the price especially since the formula isn’t that great.
Yeah… I really want to find a lip gloss formula I love! x
Lip gloss are a hit and miss but I have been lucky with them so far… thank for this now I know about the maybelline lipgloss … I am more of a Rimmel lipgloss girl tbh
ooo never tried the Rimmel ones!x
I love a pretty lip gloss or lip plumper! Thank you for your honest review, it’s greatly appreciated 🙂 Love Amy at amymarshment.com xx
Aww thanks! Try to be as honest as I can without being brutal! x
You have shared a very honest review. Not every product is for everyone.
100% and I don’t want to be known for recommending products I don’t get on with! x
Lipgloss can be a hit or miss with me, great your honest about it. Love the look of it, shame your not a fan though! Great review
Thanks for stopping by! x
That gloss have very beautiful texture and shade is perfect for Spring.

Love a good Spring anything tbf! haha x
Love your honest review as always! I cant stand gloss lol so I never wear it. I usually do a tinted lipbalm everyday and lipstick on dressier days! Thank you for sharing x
I need to wear my tinted lip balms more! x
This is SO similar to the Fenty lip bomb from the packaging to the colour except this is half the price! From what you’ve described the forumla is the exact same too, feels quite heavy and somewhat sticky however the Fenty one does have a slight tingle! I do love the way it looks but after a while i find myself wiping it off due it just being too heavy, but it does smell nice!
Oooo interesting! I always hear that the Fenty one is better! x
Wow…I didn’t know that lipgloss could have hyaluronic acid in it.
Omg I love this!! Maybelline never fails. Look at that sparkle and formula! And the color is so majestic. It’s much cheaper than the other brands with more or less the same packaging and applicator. Would consider asking this for a birthday present haha. Thanks for sharing!
Hahaha love asking for makeup for Birthdays! x
Thank you for your honest review! I love lip gloss but only if it’s not sticky. The shade looks like something I would wear, so it’s unfortunate that it’s not as good as I was hoping.
I hear the Revolution and Rimmel ones are nice! So might give it a go! x
Great and honest review! Love the color and love the gloss bottle it comes in. I typically do clear or nude lip goss shade, but this one looks like it would def fit my skin color. Thanks for sharing. Now to the store I go!
Hahah! Hope you love it! x
I’m with you on lipglosses. I like the look of them, and sometimes I try, but even with non sticky formulas… the longer the hair the harder the struggle.
I used to have really long hair and it was just a nightmare! x
Ahhh.. I totally agree with your view when your hair stick to the gloss..I totally hate it too…But most of the glosses I’ve used are the same.. I love the packaging and would definitely want to try out these 🙂
The color looks lovely btw.
Glad it’s not just me! x
Lip glosses at the drugstore are really hit and miss for me. But this one in particular is so beautiful in terms of packaging and the shade. Looks like a perfect fit for my skin tone. Thanks for the honest thoughts! xx
I know some people who love it… and with it being super affordable, if you really love the shade, maybe give it a go! x
