Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick "309 Caramel Custard" Review

by - December 14, 2014

Recently Maybelline have launched new lipsticks called ColorShow Lipsticks. Before that they had launched both matte and glitter nail paints and colour eye pencils from the same range which are very good quality and well priced. I love the whole colorshow range. After seeing the full swatches of the colorshow lipsticks on some blogs,i bought the shade "Caramel Custard" from Nykaa.com during their Diwali sale.

I have so many pink and red shades from other brands,so this time I wanted one brownish or nude-ish shade which i can wear in daily basis. And this one is a perfect match to my choice. Move to know in detail...



Brand says:
Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is a fashionable intense lipstick, which comes in chic to vivid shades. Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is highly pigmented giving bold lips.
• It stays for up to four to five hours.
• The creamy texture is not heavy on the lips.
• It does not smear or smudge.
• It does not settle in line.
• As its highly moisturized you don’t need to wear a lip balm.




Price: Rs299/- for 3.9gm 
Shelf Life : 36months

Availability: Available easily at every online beauty sites.. (now  these are in offer at Nykaa.com)

Packaging: The Maybelline ColorShow lipstick Caramel Custard comes in a shiny cylindrical black plastic case with a color coded ribbon in between. The packaging is very boring as well as looks cheap but feels sturdy to carry around. The lipstick shade and details are written at the bottom of the case.




Shade, Texture & Coverage : The shade Caramel Custard is like the colour of caramel or some dusty brown-ish colour. It looks very natural on lips. You can wear it on daily basis without any hesitations. The texture is creamy and hydrating which is the best part of them. It doesn't feel heavy on lips. This shade is very very pigmented .One single swipe brings the full coverage. Those who have dry lips like me ,these are the best choice. I don't need any lip balm underneath it. Besides its creamy texture it doesn't look glossy on my lips. But one thing is that , after some time of application my lip feels dry and the lipstick settles into fine lines. Then it would be better if you apply a transparent gloss after sometime of its application, that's way  your lip doesn't feel dehydrated. and you will have a nice glossy lips to flaunt. The shade is very pretty and will match with every outfits.




Staying Capacity: This particular shade stays maximum 2.5-3 hours on my lips with very short snacks. As it isn't a bright shade I have to touch up again and again which I don't mind. The shade is transferable due to its creamy nature.
