Hello beautiful ladies,
How are you? I am back with another review. l am a great fan of Maybelline Color Show lipsticks, they are very affordable and easily available. I have different shades of them, but I have no brown lipstick. So, I think that I should have at least one brown shade from them. Therefore, I bought a brown shade named Hot Chocolate.
So, let’s see what my experience with it is.
INR 299 for 3.8 gm.
It comes in 27 different shades; with bold colors. They define your lips perfectly in a single swipe. It is very moisturizing and stays on lips for four to five hours without smudging and smearing.
How to use:
Applying your lipstick by staring from the center of the lips. Work on the center to edges of your lips for gorgeously perfect finish.
36 months from the date of packaging.
My Experience with Maybelline 312 Hot Chocolate Colorshow Lipstick:
It comes in a black plastic tube with a black plastic cap. It has a colored rim related to the bullet. The packaging looks pretty, but it is made of very low quality plastic. The cap is breakage prone. It breaks very easily if we don’t use it carefully. The code and the shade name are written on a sticker at the bottom of the lipstick.
It is a chocolate brown shade and is not a unique color. There is no shimmer in it, which I personally like. The lipstick is highly pigmented. The color gives opaque finish in one swipe, just one swipe and you are done. The color brightens you up.
Texture of the lipstick is quite smooth and creamy. It glides on lips like butter. It is super creamy without being sticky. It feels light on lips. However, becomes cakey if over applied and settles into fine lines. This particular shade did dry out my lips.
It has good staying power. It stays on my lips for 4-5 hours with light snacks and I needed to touch up after a meal. It fades unevenly. Though, it leaves a beautiful maroonish stain behind. My sensitive nose does not bear it’s smell, which fades away after 2-3 minutes.
Pros of Maybelline 312 Hot Chocolate Colorshow Lipstick:
- Very affordable.
- Wide range of shades.
- Travel friendly.
- Smooth application.
- Easily available.
- Good staying power.
Cons of Maybelline 312 Hot Chocolate Colorshow Lipstick:
- Packaging could have been better.
- Smelly for me.
- Settles in fine lines.
- The color does not suit me.
- Drys out my lips.
Would I repurchase Maybelline 312 Hot Chocolate Colorshow Lipstick?
No, absolutely not. This color did not suit me.
Would I recommend Maybelline 312 Hot Chocolate Colorshow Lipstick?
If you like dark brown shade, go for it.
