Shelf Life: 36 months

Product claims:

Get runway-ready lips with MNY Color Show Lip Colors, brilliant lipsticks straight from the New York Fashion Week. The Maybelline Color Show lipstick range has lip colors in four stunning hues – reds, pinks, browns and mauves. Offering different shades, this lip color range has a lipstick for every mood!

  • Enriched with ultra-care hydrating formula
  • Lip color doesn’t fade in extreme heat and humidity
  • Shades stay true without drying up your lips

Packaging:
The lipsticks come in a shiny black plastic packaging which has a transparent colored rim/band in the middle. Maybelline has basically divided all its 44 shades of color show lipstick range in four categories and the colored rim indicates the parent shade of the lipstick. i.e Pinks with pink bands, Red with Red bands, Mauve with purple bands and Browns with brown bands. And out of 44 ( If i am right 😀 coz there are so many) there are 12 lipsticks in creamy matte range.

However if you own a lot of these lipsticks, its kind of difficult to distinguish the color by the color band, so you will have to check the base of each lipstick. All the lipsticks have the color coded sticker at the base. The packaging is simple yet functional, the lipsticks locks with a click sound and the cap always stays put.

Formula, Shade and Pigmentation:

Each of these lipsticks has a soft, buttery texture and glides easily on the lips. The formula of the lipstick is really moisturising, and as the formula is matte, it does not appear overly creamy or glossy on the lips. It has a candy like sweet fragrance, which is nice and mild and stays for a very short time. The lipstick is quite light and I have not felt the need to wear a lip balm along with these. But make sure that your lips are exfoliated before applying these lipsticks as they tend to stick to the dry, flaky, chapped bits of the lips.

Staying Power:

Maybelline color show Lipsticks have an average staying power of 4 to 5 hours. All the colors are highly pigmented and stay good for 3 to 4 hours without meal in between. But even with meals and drink they do not come off much and you will just need a touch up if you want. The colors are not transfer proof, but they fade evenly and leave a light stain behind.

Now lets’s talk about the shades in particular:

Peach Personality:

The shade Peach Personality , is a pure peach shade, which is going to suit fair tones mostly. But it might look a little washed out on darker skin tones but would still be wearable if used a little less like for just one swipe or blotted down. I have a medium to fair complexion and it suits me pretty well 🙂  Its a fun party peachy shade to flaunt around in a day time and will certainly add an oomph factor to any outfit or the color of the dress.  Also a great shade for an everyday wear to college or office 🙂

Lively violet:

Lively Violet is a muted mauve shade. It is a warm nude color with pink undertones. Its also a great everyday sort of color which will suit mostly all skin tones, medium to fair the most. Two or more swipes of the lipstick make it look a bit more dark and pinkish but just one swipe of it gives you a perfect nude color.  It looks beautiful when used with a darker lip liner underneath 🙂

Review:

Both the shades are beautiful and fun girly colors which will suit majorly medium to fair skin tones of indian complexions. They will be great for the college going girls who are always on a lookout for some girly yet affordable range of lipsticks. Both will look equally good for a fun party look as well as will go great with an everyday college/office going look!

Overall I would say, Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks are one of the best budget lipsticks available in India. They are creamy in texture, very much hydrationg, very well pigmented and last a decent amount of time. They have an awesome color range which kind of suits all the major skin tones and complexions. They are a great deal for the price paid and the quality provided.

I highly recommend 🙂
