Hello my lovely ladies,
Maybelline has been coming up with some amazing makeup under their Color Show line. I have reviewed their Color Show Lipsticks launched previously which were actually very creamy and moisturising. You can read the reviews of each one HERE. Now they recently came up with a Matte Lipstick collection in the same range. So I did a swatch post for you lovelies to help you pick a shade. I am in Mangalore right now, and I do all my swatch posts when I am here 🙂

These lippies are packaged just like their glossy predecessor. The external package is black with a rim corresponding to the actual shade. They do close with a slight click, so its very safe to travel with in your bag. The label on the bottom of the lipstick has details about the shade.
Texture and Formula
The texture of these lipsticks are fairly creamy. Not really drying on the lips. They apply smoothly. Upon application they look really matte and at the same time they do not overdry the lips.
Shades and pigmentation
Pinks 101 to 104
Reds 201 to 204 (The 202 is actually an orange shade)
Nudes 303 and 304
Purples 401 and 402
So we have all the basic shades and varieties under them, one can pick up whichever they want. I am sure we will find shades suitable for every occasion here. Pigmentation wise, they are moderate to deep. Not too intense but one can get the desired results by repeated swipes on the lips.
The lipstick stayed on me for 4 to 5 hours. It had minimal transfer which I really liked. So basically its a lovely long wearing lipstick and has very little transferability. At such a decent price tag, I think this is totally worth buying.
I have done the swatches in different light conditions. 1st four swatch snaps are for M 101 to M 204. Next 3 swatch photos are from M 303 to M 403. Enjoy 🙂

CONs of Maybelline Color Show Matte Lipstick
1. It may apply patchy on dry lips. Basically this is true for almost all matte lipsticks.
2. Lips need prep-ing before applying this.
1. Scrubbing the lips before using this lipstick helps get a smooth and even look on the lips.
2. I recommend using a lip balm underneath before applying this lipstick.
3. Lining the lips with a lip liner would definitely help achieve a sculpted look.
