Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick Red Band – What To Buy & What Not To Buy


Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick Brown Band – What To Buy & What Not To Buy

Hello Gorgeous ladies,

Today I am here with the “What to Buy & What Not To Buy” series. The concept of What To Buy & What Not To Buy was very much appreciated by you all and this gave me all the boost needed to work on this concept more and give you all an even better work.

2014 gave us some really lipsticks and Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks too were a part of the amazing lipstick dedicated year. As you all must know that Anamika gave me the opportunity to try 24 lipsticks’ shades out of the 27 shades of the Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks’ Range and I reviewed each one of them, you can see the shades and reviews here.



Since there were many lipsticks, so just to make it more convenient for you all, I shall discuss shades Category wise i.e., The hue and the band family the color comes from.

Today I shall talk about the shades falling in The RED Hue/Band category and will tell you all about which lipstick shade deserves your attention and which lipstick deserves to be ignored.

Must Buy:

208 Ruby Twilight .Can be purchased from here



It is a super gorgeous Ruby red shade with blue undertones. The blue undertones in it, does not in any way make this lipstick exclusive for cool toned skins, indeed this lipstick flatters all skin tones very well. On all the fronts with such a steal price tag, the lipstick gets in my favorites book. This is a must have form this range.

209 Red Velvet

You can buy from Amaozn here


It is a beautiful maroon red shade which looks flattering on all Asian skin tones. It is the best maroon shade with the just apt correct color intensity. The lipstick has got a great staying power of 5 hours, which gives another reason to love it even more.

211 Red Rush

 You can buy it from here


This is one of my favorite shades from the Colorshow range. It is a gorgeous warm red shade, and is a must for all Red lipstick lovers. At times it looks like the lipstick has some orange hints, but the color which rules here is only Red. The color will never disappoint you in giving a brightened up face.

Might Buy:

202 Red My Lips

You can buy from Amazon here


This is a treat for Orange lovers. This shade is a perfect blend of red and orange which results in a beautiful Orangish – Red lipstick shade which brightens up the face instantly. Though the lippy is more towards a sheer finish but for ladies with not much of lip pigmentation can definitely give this a try. Only if the lippy had opaque coverage and did not fade off unevenly, it would have been in the Must Buy category.

204 Red Diva

You can buy it from Amazon here


This is a gorgeous shade of red with some very obvious pink undertones. It is a perfect pinky – red shade to flatter light to medium skin tones. The best thing about this lippy is the beautiful stain that this lipstick leaves behind. You simply apply a lip balm over the stain and you have some fresh looking amazing color on your pout.

207 Cherry Crush

 Can be purchased from Amazon here


This is one of the fastest moving shades. I purchased this particular shade four times, of course not all for me. One for my neighbor, one for my sister, one for me and one for my aunt, and not all at a single time. I purchased this shade four times and all from different places because this particular shade was out of stock on most counters and even on retail counters. This is a gorgeous shade of pink which has red hues to it. It leaves behind a subtle stain after fading off.

Do Not Buy:

210 Wine Festival



It is a deep wine shade with red maroon undertones in it. Well this is not exactly a best wine shade to have and there are better similar shades available with better quality. Though the lipstick is good in pigmentation, but it fades from the centre of lips making it look bad and it transfers a lot, the patchy stains that it leaves are also a reason to dislike it.

These were all the Reds from the Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks. I hope you like categorization and find it helpful.
