Maybelline New Color Show Lipsticks in Fuchsia Flare & Red Rush Review

Maybelline New Color Show Lipsticks in Fuchsia Flare & Red Rush
After trying Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipsticks (Reviewed HERE), I have started loving bright, dark and BOLD lip colors. Maybelline has come up with NEW shades in their “Color Show Lipsticks“ range and I got the two shades- Fuchsia Flare* and Red Rush*. They are priced at Rs 299 and you can buy online HERE.

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick comes in a glossy black tube with a pull off lid. The lid of the lipstick snaps shut satisfactorily and won’t create a mess in the bag. There is a sticker stuck at the base of the lipstick that mentions shade number and name. The color of the sticker and middle section of the lipstick depicts the color of the lipstick so it would be easy to identify a particular shade in case you hoard many from this range. Overall the packaging is quite lightweight and looks chic. The scent of the lipstick is very mild and hardly noticeable.

Fuchsia Flare is “bright fuchsia pink color with blue undertones”. Though it looks bright in the tube but looks pretty natural when on lips. I love applying my lipsticks with a lip brush. It gives a defined look to my lips. Red Rush is a “warm red color” that is not too bright and can be worn both day and night. It gives a nice statement to my lips. Both the shades instantly brighten up my face even when I do not wear any makeup. I truly adore both the shades and they would look flattering on all Indian skin tones. You can always mix the shades to get a shade of your choice. 

The formula of the lipsticks is very soft, smooth and creamy. They are applied easily but you have to be careful while applying these shades as they are quite bright and any smudge or mistake really shows up and makes you look awful. It can be applied using a lip brush or directly from the bullet. The lipstick glides easily across my lips without bleeding, smudging or feathering but I always make sure to apply a lip liner for a more defined look. They are very moisturizing and I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm underneath them. But if you have extremely dry lips, make sure you exfoliate your lips well and apply a good lip balm. They do not feel heavy or greasy on my lips. My lips feel soft, smooth and moisturized. The pigmentation is superb and gives true color in just one swipe. You can always layer it up for a more dramatic effect. The lipsticks provide full coverage and are good bet for those who have heavy pigmented lips. The finish of the lipstick is smooth, even and creamy. The shades look slightly glossy when applied on lips. They do not contain shimmers or glitters. 

The staying power is pretty good. It stays put on my lips for a good 3-4 hours but fades away when I eat or drink without leaving a stain. It transfers easily on mugs, cups or glasses but then it happens with all moisturizing lipsticks. The lipstick is easily removed with a lip remover without staining or drying out the lips.

Lots of shades to choose from.
Easy to identify the shade due to color representation on outer packaging.
Very pigmented.
Does not dry out the lips.
Glides easily on lips due to creamy texture.
No weird taste or scent.

Average staying power.

Overall Thoughts:
Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks are budget friendly lipsticks with great pigmentation and lots of shades to choose from. They have various colors in reds, orange, pink and brown. I love how beautiful they look on my lips and I look forward to grab few more shades from this range :).

Rating: 4.8/5

My Tips:
If you have extremely dry lips make sure to exfoliate your lips well and apply a good lip balm.
Apply lip balm 10 minutes before lipstick or dab it to avoid sliding off of lipstick.

Have you tried the NEW shades from Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks? Will you try them?

UPDATE: These lipsticks tend to get fungus after some time. I use all my cosmetics with care but still got fungus on both the lipsticks!

Stay pretty!
