In Detail Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Red Rush 211 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 one has a red rim in the middle because it is from the red range.
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 them super much 😛 It has not got any microglitters like the Plumtastic Lipstick. It is in fact a pure color shade with amazing pigmentation. I need to say this won my heart with the lovely pigmentation. However this does set into fine lines a bit.
Shade Red Rush 211
The shade Red rush is a very bright red shade which immediately brightens up the complexion. It is a very bridal shade I feel. In bright light it does appear just a teeny bit orangy. As I mentioned before, this one has great pigmentation. I mean just one swipe is enough to give you a nice coverage. With 2 to 3 swipes you get full opaque coverage.
Maybelline Lipstick Red Rush stayed on me for good 3 to 4 hours. If you are eating anything, you would definitely need a touch up. It does leave a mild stain behind if you do not use a very good make up remover. It does come off with mild scrubbing the lips.
This is my second Maybelline Color Show Lipstick that I tried and overall I would say, 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 bright red shade and a very traditional bridal kind of a shade. It can become quite popular this bridal season. 🙂
