Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Mystic Mauve M 405 Review

Hey Everyone,

Its time for another review of a lip color I bought during Diwali from the Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon range. I picked up one shade only in this range because I prefer lipstick bullets more than crayons on any given day! Lets see how this lip color is different from the already launched lip crayons from different brands.

Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Mystic Mauve M 405 shade

Packaging– These lip crayons look almost the same as the lip crayons from the other brands like NYX, Lakme, Loreal, Colorbar and are mainly twist-up kind of lip colors. The shade name is mentioned at the base of the crayon.

They are super easy to use and carry around. The cap is sturdy and will not open on its own so you can carry it everywhere!

My Thoughts about Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Mystic Mauve M 405

Shade– The shade Mystic Mauve M 405, as the name implies, is mainly a warm-toned mauve pink shade and not a true mauve! It can be a perfect MLBB shade for medium fair Indian skin tone and can be easily worn to office, college or even throughout the day. It gives that pinkish- hue to the lips making it look more pretty. If you have dark lips, the lip color will appear a little darker than what it looks on my lips. It gives a very soft sheen on applying but it lacks any kind of shimmer in it and its just the sheen. College going girls will like it a lot! 🙂

Texture– The lip crayon has a smooth texture and is easy to glide on the lips. It is not drying and has a semi-sheer coverage so you need to apply at least 2 swipes on the lips. The lip color sets to a satin soft finish and is not matte so if you like sheer lip colors, this one is your ideal lip crayon.  The lip color doesn’t accentuate fine lines although it looks a little flaky if your lips are very dry.

Pigmentation– This lip color has medium pigmentation and covers the lips in 2 swipes. Even if you have dark lips, it works well in just two swipes. The lip color leaves a strong stain behind on the lips which looks good even if the color has faded after 3-4hours.

Staying Power– It stays on the lips for 3+ hours easily with light meals. It doesn’t bleed although it does transfer a little so make sure to carry it, in case you wear it to a party or the office, for a quick touch up after few hours.

Overall, I like this lip crayon but I prefer wearing it only for a movie or while running for quick errands. I love matte lip shades and so this one is more of an everyday staple. Just apply it and leave it for the day. By the end of the day it fares well! 🙂
