In Detail Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Plum Tastic 402 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 🙂
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 got extremely fine micro glitters in it, but they are not obvious on the lips at all. I could notice them only when I was trying to remove the swatch fron my hand.
Shade Plumtastic 402
This shade Plumtastic is a very flattering shade and will suit a variety of skin tones. True to its name, its plum pink. Not the intense fuschia pink. When it comes to coverage I would give it a 7 out of 10. The lipstick appears quite sheer initially but when you apply it in multiple swipes, the colour builds up. It is not completely opaque but not too sheer either. I feel this is a perfect shade to go with any look and you can pull this off with a variety of outfits.
Maybelline Lipstick Plumtastic stayed on me for good 3 to 3.5 hours. If you are eating anything, you would definitely need a touch up. It does not leave any noticeable stain behind and comes off with any make up remover.
This was the first 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 and 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 fun shade and I guess would be popular among the college going beauties.
