MY TAKE ON MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW BRIGHT MATTES LIPSTICK

Packaging: The lipsticks come in the usual ‘color show’ lipstick packaging. The outer seal looks funky but once you remove it, it is the same old black tube. The lipstick packaging has a color band in the center that helps you recognize the shade, also the shade names at the bottom are color coded.

Texture: The lipsticks have a texture quite similar to creamy-matte ones from the brand but they aren’t creamy once applied and settled. I love the texture of these lipsticks since they are very comfortable on the lips.

 

Shade: There are a total of 6 shades in the range, below is a summary on each-

Merry Fuchsia- This is a proper fuchsia shade but to my surprise, it isn’t very bold or bright! I have a lot of fushcia lipsticks and this one isn’t as bright as them. Will suit all skin tones.

Brilliant Red- This is a proper red shade and will go well with all skin tones.

Lively Rose- This is a reddish-pink shade and looks lovely! If you love rosy shades, you would love this one. Again, this should go well with all skin tones.

Peppy Pink- This is a proper dark pink shade and will go well with all skin tones.

Blazing Orange- I was expecting this one to be a bright orange but this is quite wearable burnt orange. This isn’t very bright and will look good on all skin tones. This is my favorite shade from the range!

Cheerful Coral- This is a proper coral shade that will suit all skin tones except very dark skin tones- quite unusual as per the claims. I would like to add that this shade isn’t bright but can look a but frosty/light on very dark skin tones.

(L-R) Blazing Orange, Cheerful Coral, Lively Rose, Brilliant Red, Merry Fuchsia, Peppy Pink.

Fragrance: The lipsticks smell like some sugary drink and I love it!

How I use and staying power: To use, simply swipe the lipstick once or twice on well hydrated or moisturized lips and you are good to go. If you do not have chapped lips or dry lips, you can still use it without preparing your lips.

Initially I thought the lipsticks might be too bright because that’s what one would assume after reading the lipstick name. I love wearing bright lipsticks but not all like it on regular basis. Trust me, I did not even go through the claims or product description and used it already thinking why are these not as bright as I expected them to be? I am so happy with the fact that these lipsticks live up to the claims of being ‘not-so-bright’ yet be bold and suit all skin tones. Except for the shade ‘cheerful coral’ all shades should suit all skin tones. They feel very comfortable and lightweight on the lips and transfer minimal. Even after meals, lips remain stained which I love. Application and removal, both is quite easy and I love the shades especially ‘blazing orange’ which is quite unusual and different from anything I have ever used. I find myself using ‘blazing orange’ more often!
