In Detail Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Midnight Pink 111 Review
Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks come in a rather simple yet nice looking packaging. Its basically black but there is this rim of coloured rim in the middle which makes it look nice. Different shades have different coloured rims. I was super excited when I heard that maybelline is coming up with color show lipsticks! I ordered a handful of them and I have been trying them on since a couple of days now 🙂 This has a pink rim since it is a pink lipstick!
Formula and Texture
The formula of the lipstick is really moisturising, but it does not appear overly creamy or glossy on the lips. It glides on the lips like a dream and the texture is quite creamy and soft I would say. It does not stick which is a big plus point. It smells like candies which is why I love the most 🙂 It does not have any glitters at all. Its just a lovely creamy lipstick.
Shade Midnight Pink 111
It is quite tricky to describe the shade of this lipstick. Mainly for the fact that this shade is not exactly pink. I would define it as a magenta shade not overly pink but slightly more on the red side. On swatching this looks more pink, I guess because of the lights but the colour actually appears exactly as it does on my lip swatches. This colour again will suit almost all skin tones. Pigmentation wise I think this baby gives a medium coverage. 2 to 3 swipes should be good.
Maybelline Lipstick Midnight Pink 111 stayed on me for good 3 to 3.5 hours. If you are eating anything, you would definitely need a touch up. It leaves a stain behind. The stain does not come off quickly with a regular make up remover. You either need a very good quality make up remover or might have to try for a longer time if you want the stain completely gone immediately.
I have been totally enjoying the Maybelline color show lipsticks! The lipsticks are apt to their budget. The packaging has been kept very simple but the plastic is not really good quality. The formula is what I love the most, besides the smell of course. 😛 Staying power I would say is Okay types for this price tag. This particular shade is a very lovely magenta shade and will suit a variety of skin tones. 🙂
PS. This lipstick did melt! 🙁 I had to reattach it using my live saving trick. Find out how I do it HERE 🙂
