Maybelline color show lipsticks review

My love for lipstick is forever. I drool whenever I see some pretty shades of lip colour, I need to control myself a lot from buying them again and again but fail to do so most of the time :D. I am sure that this is the story of pretty much every makeup loving girl.

So today in the love of lipstick I am going to review one of my favourite the Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks. I owe three shades from the Color Show range and I love them. They are the steal at this price. To know further about these lip colours keep on reading

My experience with Maybelline Color Show lipsticks review


Nothing to talk much about packaging as it is very simple and ordinary. The lipstick comes in a glossy black plastic tube. The range has been divided into four categories pink, red, mauve and brown. All the tubes have the rim of colour in the middle of them which helps to categories the lipstick. It also has the shade name and colour mentioned at the bottom of the tube.


The texture is really creamy and moisturising. My lips are extremely dry but these lipstick moisturise them so well and I don’t feel like applying lip balm underneath them. They glide on lips like a dream and does not feel heavy at all. These lipstick are not completely matt but are little glossy. Still being glossy these lipsticks are not sticky and are very light weight, they don’t feel heavy even after layering them few times.

Staying power:

These lipsticks have a decent staying power, they stayed on my lips for about 4 to 5 hours. In between these hours I had dinner and some snacks as well. After 4 to 5 hours the lipstick starts to fade from the centre and that is the time when reapplication is needed.



midnight pink

This one was gifted to me by a cousin cum friend. Midnight magenta is a gorgeous magenta pink shade. The pigmentation of this colour is great, just one swipe and you are good to go. I would say that it is a shade which will suit all the skin tones. Even the darker skin beauty can flaunt this shade easily.


Fall in Mauve:

It is the mauve shade with a hint of brown in it. I loved when the SA at the Maybelline counter swiped this on my hand, although I didn’t like it on my lips. I am not a big fan of mauve shades and that is a personal preference. I am sure that this brownish mauve shade will be loved by mauve and brown lipsticks lover. Fall in Mauve shade is highly pigmented, one swipe will be enough but colour can be built by more swipes.


Red Rush:

This one was also gifted to me:D. Red Rush is a gorgeous bright red shade. Colour payoff of this shade is really good.
