The lipstick comes in a metallic silver colored packaging which has a light chocolaty brown colored plastic cap which shuts properly at a single click and the cap has Maybelline color sensational written on a side and the other details like life time of lipstick, quantity and price on the other. The bottom part of lipstick is of square shape and has the shade number and name written there on the same colored sticker as that of lipstick shade. So, it is easier to find one, if one has many in the vanity from the same range. The packaging overall is sturdy and that again makes it travel friendly too.
The texture of this lipstick is creamy matte actually as the name implies and it is non drying on the lips at the same time. The formula is so creamy and thereby, glides on lips so effortlessly. This feels creamy yet matte and when dries settles completely truly into matte. It never flakes or gets clumpy.
Shade & Pigmentation :
This is a warm toned orange shade and actually it is an orange shade which has some red color in it which makes it perfect for the most Indian outfits. I was eagerly looking for a shade like this. I truly love this color.
This orange red shade has great pigmentation quality. This happens to be my very first lipstick from Maybelline and I am glad that I got my hands on it. I was looking for a orange red shade and finally, I got it. It will suit almost all Indian skin tones from fair to medium to deeper skin tones as well. Although, a good quality makeup remover is a must to remove any long lasting matte lipstick like this.

Cons Of Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick 685 Craving Coral :
Wearing a lipbalm can make the finish patchy and streaky as this is a matte liptsick. So, one needs to get rid of lip balm completely and then apply this lipstick.
Final Verdict :
This is a warm toned orange color lipstick with a hint of red in it so a truly orange-red lipstick that will suit almost all skin tones. The formula is creamy matte and it has smooth texture due to which it glides smoothly and it is highly pigmented as well. One or two swipes are enough to give the full intense color. The color, of course, is so gorgeous and it lasts so long for about 8 hours or even more with meals. It lasts almost all day. For orange or bold lipstick lovers, this is a great shade to have.
