Today I am here not with a product review, but with a post that was with the much appreciated concept, “What To Buy & What Not To Buy”.
Not just you all love reading these posts, but I too love doing these. It is like summarizing all of my experience and giving you all the best possible suggestions and to help in making your lipstick finding game a little easy. I recently covered the RED Hue/Band Category of the Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks under this concept and today I shall cover the BROWN Hue/Band Category.
So without much of delay, let me get into action and do my job. Read on.

The BROWN Hue/Band Category:
The brown band category had seven shades to offer. The brown category was not as a hit as other categories from the Maybelline Colorshow range. A shade or two seemed quite misleading and did not look like brown hued lipstick and few shades were bit too intense and almost looked weird in appearance.
Caramel custard is a medium toned terracotta brown shade. The shade is decently pigmented and if you are someone who loves brown then this budget friendly shade of brown is a must for you. The shade will make up for an ideal nude brown for deeper skin tones. The shade looks great even when worn as a lip stain. The soft creamy texture and its staying power make it even more likeable.
It is a very gorgeous latte brown shade with very obvious pink undertones. The shade makes up for a beautiful nude shade for fair to medium skin tones, a MLBB shade for me. It offers semi opaque coverage; the color can be built upon. The soft creamy texture is absolutely adorable. This is a must buy shade from this range. It is a perfect nude shade with the perfect texture.
This is a gorgeous shade of brick, with some shimmers. The shimmers in it are subtle enough and do not make the lipstick’s texture gritty. The shade is really beautiful and looks very flattering in warm skin tones. The lippy is very light in feel and does not bleed.
It is a total summery shade, a lovely coral orange shade leaning towards pink. This shade will look gorgeous on warm toned skins. The lipstick does not dry out lips and offers semi sheer color pay off. Despite of its creamy texture the lipstick has quite nice staying power.
Any brown shade lover will like this shade. Just like its name, it is a chocolate brown shade. The lippy has a soft texture and has a tendency to settle in lip lines, but for the shade at a steal price, a brown shade lover might just want to try this lipstick.
Do Not Buy:
Nutty cookie is not a very flattering shade. It is very dark shade of brown with intense color pigments. The lipstick has a soft creamy texture and it settles into fine lines. Moreover it fades off unevenly, which looks unpleasing.
The shade of the lipstick is like that of a Coffee bean and will compliment Asian skin tones. It has a creamy texture and is decently pigmented. The lippy tends to fade off unevenly and with slight snacks and drinks it vanishes, leaving behind patchy stains which are never good to look.
These were all the shades of the Maybelline Colorshow lipstick from the Brown Hue/Band category. I hope you all like the suggestions.
