When it comes to lipsticks, lip glosses or lip liner, I love to find and try out new things. This happened to me with the new “Glamour Baroque” series of Maria Galland. Maria Galland is a brand that not everyone knows, because you can only find it at Beauty Salons. Today I will tell you my experiences with the lip color “Glamour Baroque Rouge Velours” from Maria Galland, which comes in two beautiful colors: Rose in Perlé and Rouge Rubis.
They promise that the color is long-lasting, highly pigmented, matt and comfortable to apply. The texture of the lip color is described as creamy. After several weeks of testing time, I want to share my opinion with you.
Maria Galland Glamour Baroque Rouge Velours – 53 Rose Perlé*
I’m in love with the color, which just so suitable for the everyday use, but is still kind of special because of the golden glitter particles. The glitter particles don’t disturb on the lips, means that you won’t feel the grit on your lips. The application is actually creamy but isn’t quite easy, as the applicator takes up a lot of product. As seen on the pictures, this color is not quite matt. I would describe this finish as Satin. Unfortunately, the lasting-power is not good at all. Even after having applied the lip color, it gets easily blurry if you get in touch with the color. The color will even disappear after several drinks. I find this color very difficult for people wearing Invisaligns, because the color easily gets on the attachments. The pigmentation is fine. For an office-friendly look one layer is sufficient.

This color is a great one, too. It contains a slight pink tint. This one is really matte as described. However, it won’t dry out the lips. On the contrary, the creamy texture provides soft lips. The application is similar to Rose Pearl, be careful when applying this color. What I love about this color is the strong pigmentation. You will only need one layer! Still, I wouldn’t call them long lasting. It doesn’t survive a big meal, but wears off regularly.

The price for a lip color is € 25.50 for 6ml. Although I find the colors great, I think that the price would be only justified if the colors were actually long lasting as described. Nevertheless, the texture is velvety and creamy, which I really like!
