Masaba Gupta, the designer who brought the vision of New York to New Delhi alive said, “This collection is inspired by the Color Sensational Vivid Matte lipstick and represents the Maybelline girl who is bold, confident and always ready to experiment!

The dynamic energy of the brand, the vibrant and vivid make-up, Masaba’s uber-chic style collection full of confidence, panache and an inherent New York attitude, was fabulous. I absolutely loved it. It had all the ingredients that makes a woman step out, feel feminine and yet powerful – all values that allow a Maybelline girl to ‘Make it Happen’. Through the show we created a new expression of vivid looks for the festive season, and Masaba’s design aesthetic was incomparable, making the show a memorable one.”

We used dreadlocks in combination with vivid pink lips and eyes, we used dashes as a modern spinoff on the classic black liner and sculpted, clean but fresh summer skin. Mascara was indeed sensational!”
