Packaging: The lipsticks come in the usual Maybelline lipstick tubes with colourful matte-finish lid.
Texture: The lipsticks are very creamy and glide on the lips as smooth as a butter; it then sets into a dry matte finish.
Shades: There are a total of 10 shades available in this lipstick range, here is a summary on them:
Cherry Chic: This shade is a burnt burgundy shade with very minute brown undertones. Nevertheless, it will look good on all skin tones.
Fuchsia Flash: This is a proper fuchsia shade but a bit on the neon side. Might look weird on darker skin tones but will definitely suit fair to medium skin tones.
Get Red-dy: This is a pretty red colour with a bit of burnt undertones. Should go well with all skin tones.
Make Me Blush: This is a light orange-peach shade which is exactly similar (or an exact dupe) to Tropic Tonic from MAC. I love such coral shades and this is my favourite from the range.
Orange Shot: Orange shot is a proper neon orange shade similar to the ‘tangerine fluff’ from lakme lip and cheek mousse.
Pink Shot: This is a neon pink shade quite similar to ‘fuchsia flash’ but a bit lighter.
Plum Perfection: Plum perfection is a deep reddish-brown shade but more on the brown side. No idea why they named this plum!!
Technically Pink: This is a beautiful baby pink shade which will suit all skin tones other than darker tones since it might look a bit frosty.
Touch of Nude: This is a neutral nude shade with mauve undertones. If you have been frequently reading all my reviews, you might know how much I love neutral-mauve shades!! This has to be another favorite of mine in the range and definitely goes with all skin tones and suits any and every occasion.
Up To Date: This is a deeper neon pink, again similar to Fuchsia Flash shade but a bit darker and brighter.
A lot of shades for example reds and pinks are somewhat similar to each other; only differ a shade lighter or darker which is great since you can easily get a red or pink shade of your choice depending on how bright or light you prefer.
Fragrance: The lipsticks have mild vanilla smell which I love!
How I use and staying power: To use, simply swipe the lipsticks directly on the lips and you are done. The lipsticks glide on easily like butter and settle into dry-matte finish. I love such dry-matte lipsticks since they are long lasting and you won’t even feel e anything on your lips, but the con here is that it can accentuate fine lines! If you have dry lips or chapped lips, this lipstick will worsen the condition so make sure you apply a lip balm prior to application. The lipstick does not readily transfer and will only stain your hands lightly when you try the kiss-test. The lipstick stays all day long especially the darker shades even after meals thanks to the pigmented stain that it leaves behind. Overall, I really love these lipsticks and all shades are pretty too. I regularly exfoliate my lips so I can use these whenever I want, only make sure you prepare your lips before you use these.
