Get Runway-Ready lips with Maybelline's NEW Color Show Lipsticks!Monday, June 02, 2014
Maybelline is out with a new line of lippies from the COLOR SHOW collection! I am so psyched when this was launched because the Color Show is one of their most iconic products in the US now that is gracing the NY Fashion Week. You should be excited too! These are good times, the time when brands are finally bringing in more makeup lines to choose from.
Their lippies are wrapped in tamper-proof packaging. It is sealed to keep the lipstick from being tried and tested when no one is looking. LOL Plus, it's for your own safety as well.

I love the black, sleek casing these lipsticks are housed in. Usually, Maybelline's lippies have a fun and playful packaging, but this being their "pro" runway line, they stuck with glossy black with jewel toned accents that complement each of the lipstick shades.
I received three shades from Maybelline. "Cherry on Top" and "Pinkalicious" both belong to the cool tones, while the "Orange Icon" belongs to the warm tone family. So I get to review both tones! Yay!
I swatched the lipstick directly on my lips rather than swatching them on my hand. No particular reason, I just thought that one can see the effect better on someone's lips rather than the back of someone's hand.
The shade "Orange Icon" is a reddish orange lippie with a gel-like finish. I had to layer it on several times to get the intensity that I wanted. Even though you have to layer it, it's not sheer either. The finish is just gel-like.
It complemented my skin tone rather well, again, I never really had a problem with lippies, I wear whatever shade I want because I try to make it work! I don't want to limit myself to just warm-toned lipsticks.
This is an unusual kind of pink lipstick. It's more on the red side, it's not exactly bright nor is it dull either. It's somewhere in between.
The blue undertone is kind of prominent with this shade making it look more berry than pink. It's a fun shade which is definitely versatile whether for day or for night use.
I think it's pretty obvious which shade is my favorite. I instantly fell in love with this shade. I love red lipstick and I can't get enough of them. Bright colored lipsticks uplifts my mood, and it gives me confidence that I can't describe.
I love makeup and fragrances that look and smell seductive, powerful, and classy. The red shade never fails to make me feel all of those things.
Look how gorgeous that perfect red is. It's magnificent!
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
Length of usage before review: 3 weeks.
- Extremely moisturizing!
- Smells pleasant.
- Available in a lot of shades.
- Creamy texture and finish softens dried lips.
- Extremely affordable!
- Beautiful sleek casing.
- Long-lasting! Lasts 6-8 hours. Just blot and reapply to make it last!
- Does not bleed!
- Feels and glides on like lip balm, but has the pigment of a matte lipstick.
- Does not crack.
- Extremely Affordable.
- Mix and matchable for a more personalized and customized lip color.
- Easily available in leading department stores and some supermarkets/drugstores.
- Fashionable but wearable shades, all year round!
- Runway inspired.
- Color is buildable.
- Although it's not transfer proof, it leave you with a lot of color even after you eat and drink!
- Some of the shades need to be layered to get full color. But that's ok because some people like the tinted look.
