I went to the drug store a couple of days back to pick up a few of my everyday supplies. I have always been addicted to lipstick and that proved to be my advantage that day. I saw posters hanging inside the store advertising the new “Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks” range of lipsticks. I wasn’t too keep on making a purchase, but thought, “Okay, why not give it a try? It’s not going to harm anyone”. So I went to the SA and asked her to give me the swtaches. The minute she swiped it on my hand, I decided I was definitely going to take one of these babies home. I had a hard time deciding which shade to choose, but finally decided to pick the shade I am going to be reviewing for you guys today!
Price: Rs. 299 for 3.9gms
My take on Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Creamy Caramel:
It comes in the traditional old school lipstick packaging. It’s a black plastic case with a colored strip across, indicating the color of the shade. The packaging is quite sturdy, but it is not as impressive as the other Maybelline range lipsticks. The color of the shade inside is also indicated by a sticker on the bottom side of the lipstick with its name written on it.
The lipstick smells like bubble gum, which you will love in the beginning. But as I kept using it, the smell got a little to my head. This obviously will not be the case with everyone; you might just love it for all we know. The texture of the lipstick is smooth and so creamy. It glides over the lips so beautifully and feels so light and airy.
I love the feeling of not being able to feel the heavy lipstick on, which is precisely what this product gives you. The shade, as the name indicates is a dark roasted caramel resembling a burnt brick. Just one swipe gives you a sheer opaque finish. It contains tiny glitter particles making it more of an evening wear. It keeps the lips moisturized and completely avoids drying out.
It stays for over 3-4 hours after which it starts slowly fading away leaving an even tint behind. It does not bleed, does not settle between lines and is affordable. Maybelline heard our prayers I’m sure
