I have 2 shades from Maybelline ColorShow Lipsticks completely from different hues πŸ˜€ So here goes my review on them.

Price : 299INR.

Maybelline ColorShow Lipsticks review

My experience with Maybelline ColorShow Lipsticks :

Packaging: The lipstick packaging is straight business. Black sturdy case, have a colored ring indicating the shade hue the lipstick belongs to, shade name and colour sticker at the bottom, shuts with the click, twist up tube and not cheap looking.

Shades:

Cherry crush: It’s a blend of Cherry red and Pink. It looks gaudy on my dusky skin at times; it might wash out the deeper skin tones. But an absolutely beautiful shade.

Hot chocolate: As the name says it’s a chocolate brown shade, I bought this as I wanted to experiment with the brown shade. But this bowled me over. What a gorgeous shade, brightens up my face without making me look old. I get compliments whenever I wear this shade. I sometimes top this with the maroon shade I own and voila!! It becomes a Marsala shade.

Texture & Pigmentation: The two shades I have has similar texture. Creamy; glossy; velvety. These are creamy lipsticks with great pigmentation; they cover lip pigmentation without any issue. There are no shimmers in either and lipsticks glide smoothly over the lips. Both the shades I have don’t accentuate dry lips or don’t get to stuck to lips. Cherry crush is a little sheer compared to the Hot chocolate.

Performance: These lipsticks have great staying power. The intensity of the shade stays on for a long long time then they leave a stain behind. To be precise CherryΒ crush stays for 3-4 hours leaving a pinkie stain; Hot chocolate stays 3-5 hours leaving a brown marronish stain. The darker shades definitely stay longer than the lighter ones.

Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick cherry crush review

 

A lot of good things has been said about it. And they are all true. I would like try some lipsticks from the hues I don’t have. Maybelline colorshow lipsticks have great shade range, formula and good pigmentation at affordable rate. Yup! Boring packaging; Yup! Average performance but who cares!! Must try.

What do you think about this? Have you tried this range? Which is your favorite range in this?

Live life to the fullest
