I have seen this product earlier this year on department store. It was launched together with its Color Show products and eyeliners. Purchasing lipsticks online could be a challenge yet i wasn’t in a position to part my hard-earned money a shade that might not suit me.
As you can see, the packaging is pretty simple. Black plastic body with a jelly-like colour strip in the middle as an indicator to show which family colour tree these lipsticks range from. Maybelline’s new Color Show line contains four catergories of shades to enhance all skintones. Well done, Maybelline!
5 Classic Reds – Red My Lips, Cherry on Top, Red Siren, Red Diva, Downtown Road
7Perfect Pinks – Crushed Candy, Pink Avenue, Party Pink, Pinkalicious, Pink Please, Pink Punch and Pink Paradise
5Noble Nudes – Coral Culture, Chic Peach, True Toffee, Nude Mocha and Disco Coral
3 Proactive Plums – Plum Perfect, Sweet Orchid and Plum-tastic
Here, I have Maybelline Color Show in 402 Plum-Tastic and Maybelline Color Show in 105 Pinkalicious.
I bought Plum-Tastic first to try it out but i was quite impressed because of its application. It used on very smoothly and required no lipbalm which I usually apply on first before topping it by using a lipstick. A month later, I bought Pinkalicious and again, Let down with the shade. I found it wearable but my boyfriend thinks its tad bit too glamorous for daily wear. Hmm…
Each lipstick contains 3.9g of product and let personally find it an awesome size for a lipstick. I was able to easily carry this during my makeup pouch without taking up so much space. It retails at 165php and available at all Watsons outlets, making it affordable and accessible to everyone. Students, now there is no reason for you to NOT look presentable during presentations or conferences! Undoubtedly, substance is crucial however you would like to score first impressions too, yes?
The wear-time for these lipsticks is about 4-5 hours without eating or drinking. Another thing to note would be the fruity/floral scent which I can’t place a finger on it. For me, the scent does not bother me and it also smells quite lovely. Though if you are sensitive or particular about products with scent, definitely this probably are not the item for you.
In comparison with Pinkalicious, Plum-Tastic looks less creamy and has a very light frosty sheen. But don’t be swayed by the swatch. Look at the lip swatches below, both lipsticks put on smoothly without the need for patchiness and it didn’t amplify any imperfections all over my lips. Instead, it made my lips look plump and moisturized. I love these lipsticks!
You can purchase these lipsticks from local Watsons outlets whether its available any where you live or you can also buy from them:
What I like:
Quick and simple application (no need for lip brushes)
Long-wearing Compact, perfect size for a lipstick
Fruity/floral scent (I’m not bothered about it) Can’t think of any at this time. So, what are some thoughts you might have? Have you tested out these lipsticks yet?Want to get know what you think in the comment box below.
