My experience with Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick Forever Mauve:

Packaging: The lipstick comes in a shiny black plastic packaging and the cap click shuts firmly. The packaging actually takes you to the days when usually all lipsticks had this black colored rectangular packaging, typical old school types.

The best feature of the packaging of this lipstick is the shiny colored band that shows the color family of the lipstick.
The color coded stickers at the bottom of the lipstick makes it easy to detect the color in your stash

Texture: The lipstick has a very soft, creamy and smooth texture. This lipstick is effortless to apply. And it is not frosty at all, which I love. Just a bit of glossy finish that looks great for such a shade.

Shade: It is a gorgeous mauve color with hints of pink in it. I quite like this shade and loves the way how it goes with my skin tone.

Pigmentation: This shade is not insanely pigmented, it has a semi sheer coverage but the color can be built up with multiple swipes so that is not a problem. Just 2-3 swipes and you have lovely mauve color on lips with opaque coverage.

My Take: Honestly I am not a person to go gaga about mauves easily as I rarely fall for mauve colors. But this color was such an exception; it actually looked very flattering and was not a shade that would add some 3-4 years of age to my face.

The pigmentation is not heavy but still buildable and the texture is adorable, a little towards creamier side.

I totally love this lippy, but staying power disappoints me a bit here. It cannot in any case survive more than 4 hours. I am actually playing safe here, infact it can totally vanish in 3 hours, but for someone who does not talk and eat much, the lippy will survive for 4 hours at a stretch after which it leave slight stain behind.

  1. It makes your lips look so flawless,juicy and plump,I doubt it would look good on me so it must be your lips <3

    And the not eating/talking much part reminds me of myself,somehow I cannot eat with any lip product on so I always wipe it off before eating

    • Thnx Nia for the praise…. By the way i can undrstnd the dilemma of wiping off lip product before eating, you actually do quite a task…. atleast i wud never take so much of task. But yes there are few shades that just wont take eating well and end up in an embarrassing moment.
