In Detail Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Ruby Twilight 208 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 just a teeny bit though.
Shade Ruby Twilight 208
The shade Ruby Twilight 208 is a very nice higly pigmented deep ruby red shade which I thick looks ultra glam dot com. It is quite a bridal shade I feel. Can be worn by all ages. I really do not understand why people relate age to lipstick shades. We must be colourful and happy at all ages! The coverage, oh man! its full opaque single swipe baby. But we need to go twice or thrice for our satisfaction right? 😛
Maybelline Lipstick Ruby Twilight 208 stayed on me for good 4 to 5 hours. If you are eating anything, you would may need a touch up. It does leave a strong stain behind even if you use a very good make up remover. The stain lasts for another 4 to 5 hours. 😀
This is my 4th or 5th 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 great for ruby twilight for this price tag. This particular shade is a very deep red ruby shade and a very traditional bridal kind of a shade. It can become quite popular this bridal season. 🙂
I am specially loving this shade. Well I love everything red and rose 😀
