All Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayons 9 Shades Review, Swatches
These lipsticks come in a beautiful colour coded retractable chubby crayon form. I love the packaging, its cute as well as user friendly. Fit the cap properly and you can travel with them easily. The bottom of the lipstick has the shade details. Therefore, packaging wise, I don’t have any complains. However because these are non sharpenable, once the tip gets blunt, you can’t get the pointy tip back without wasting any product.
Texture, Formula, Pigmentation
These lipsticks are extremely creamy as well as smooth. They apply literally like butter. Its actually quite satisfying how smoothly these glide on the lips. Formula is very moisturising. Hence, its rich and feels luxurious. It basically is a super pigment laden moisture filled creamy lipstick. Although on the packaging, it says that the lipstick has “high coverage matte finish”. While the “high coverage” part is true, “matte” is quite not how the lipstick is in reality.
Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayons – Individual Shades Description
Flaming Orange – A medium orange with warm undertones. I love the fact that this does not look bright or neon like. Therefore, almost all skin tones can flaunt them.
Deep Coral – This is basically a medium red shade with noticeable coral undertones. Again, a coral which every skin tone can wear.
Dark Chocolate – A medium chocolate brown with slightly burgundy undertones.
Fierce Fuchsia – An intense fuchsia shade which isn’t too bright or muted. Very wearable for all skin tones.
Mystic Mauve – This shade has equal proportions of medium red and mauve. Very intense, this shade can be worn as an everyday lipstick by everyone.
Vibrant Violet – This is a rich pink violet shade with cool undertones. This shade is totally up your ally if you’re into such fun yet intense shades.
Bold Burgundy – A deep burgundy with an intense colour pay off. A gorgeous fall shade.
Magnetic Maroon – A medium maroon with warm undertones. Not super intense but rich colour pay off.
Passionate Plum – A gorgeous mid-intense plum with neutral undertones. Again, this can be worn by every skin tone on a variety of occasions.
Intense Red – Intense red is a flattering red shade. It is basically the statement red of this range.
Finish, Wearability, Staying Power
Although these claim to be matte, they are no way near matte. They have a moisture rich finish. Hence, they are very hydrating on the lips. Therefore these lipsticks wear comfortably throughout the wear time. I love the fact that these are not tacky so lips don’t seem to stick together. Staying power is around 4 hours without fading.
The lipstick does transfer because of its creamy nature. However, with a little bit of transfer, the intensity does not get affected much. Also, if you notice, this has a slightly fruity fragrance to it. It is not very noticeable but if you’re someone like me who has to smell everything 😀 I thought you should know.
Maybelline crayon lipsticks do not settle into fine line or accentuate any dry patches on the lips. Its perfect for my ladies who usually get dry lips. The lipstick keeps the lips looking luscious. The excellent colour pay off makes sure the lipstick game is luxe. With this price tag, I am sure this range of lip crayons by maybelline are going to be a total sell out.
So go ahead and tell us your favourite shade in the comments below. If you have tried these before, we would love to hear about your experience with it.

CONs of Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayons
1. The packaging says its matte, but this lipstick is not at all matte.
2. Transfers a little.
1. If you are someone who wants to try out something other than matte formulas, definitely give this a try.
2. Because these are super pigmented, they would cover pigmented lips also. Hence, you can pretty much flaunt every shade in this range.
3. Prepping your lips before application results in luscious looking lips.
(0.5 points taken away because this is not matte as it claims).
