Winters is an amazing season when it comes to dressing up; being sweat free, odour free, except for the fact that Indian mothers bombard your food with an extra dollop of ghee or butter and then says “Daughter start going for a walk; you’ve started to bloat”! Yes mother, it aint your ghee’s fault! 😲Anyways, enough of my cribbing! 😅
Maybelline had launched their Color Show lipsticks in the year 2014. No, it’s not like I woke up late to this announcement. I have reviewed some of the shades from the Color Show range earlier, but those were from their Matte range. So recently, I was in a dire need for a nourishing lipstick with neutral colour, because summer has left my vanity brimming with matte lip lacquers. But on an everyday basis, I do wanna retain hydration of the lips. 😊
Without adieu, let’s begin with the review! ➤➤
How to Use: Apply lipstick in the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth. Glide the lipstick across the entire bottom lip. 💄
Price: INR 299
Net Weight: 3.6 grams
Buy Online: Grab yours from shopping portals such as Amazon & Nykaa (click onto the website name for direct link to the product).
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a black plastic bullet with a colored band in the middle, where the lid falls when you close it. This band does not depict the shade inside but the color family of the lipstick, for instance- browns, reds, pinks, purples, etc. The packaging is decent, not flimsy and travel friendly.
Texture: Maybelline Color Show lipsticks are very smooth in terms of application. You don’t need to apply a layer of balm underneath; the lipstick itself is quite hydrating and feels light onto the lips. It is quite creamy. 😚
Longevity: The lipstick lasts long approximately for 2.5 hours, if you do not intake meals or drinks. It does transfer and need to be re-applied after meals. The color intensity does not stay the same after 2.5 hours and gradually a soft tint is left along with supple lips.
Shade: Choco- Latte 313 is a soft brown with pink undertones. Though the camera does not do justice as it appears more pinkish than brown but in real it’s a beautiful subtle brown for everyday use. It would go amazingly well with medium to fair skin tone. The color is pigmented, even on being creamy in texture.
· Simple, travel friendly packaging.
· Texture being creamy.
· Hydrates the lips
· Longevity is pretty good; also it leaves behind an even tint.
· The lip color transfers.
