My take on Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick – 309 Caramel Custard
Packaging: the Color Show lipsticks by Maybelline come in rather boring and cheap quality packaging. They’re black in color and the plastic looks breakable. The middle of the tube denotes which family of colors it belongs to, like red for shades of red, pink for shades of pink and so on; this one is transparent brown because this lipstick is caramel in color. The sticker at the bottom denotes the shade number, shade name, date of mfg etc. it is sleek and tiny in size and so, travel friendly also.
Texture: the texture of these lipsticks is like I mentioned in all my previous posts on Maybelline Color show lipsticks also, my most favorite part about these lipsticks. It’s super soft and creamy in texture without being greasy or sticky. Also, it feels very light on the lips, almost like a lip balm only. Application is very smooth, but the lipstick settles into fine lines on lips, though that can be rectified if the lips are properly scrubbed beforehand. I don’t like only one thing about it, and that’s that it smells really weird when first applied, though the scent subsides after a few minutes but still…
Shade: The shade is called Caramel Custard is, like the name suggests, similar to what caramel looks like. It’s a nice everyday wear, MLBB kind of color and will suit most skin tones. Also, this lip color can look really pretty if teamed with nice eye makeup. It’s one of those shades that can be worn when you’re confused over which lip color to wear because I’m pretty sure, it’ll go with every outfit for every occasion possible. it is not matte nor is it really glossy though it gives a very pretty sheen to the lips. It gives medium coverage to lips and 2-3 swipes are more than enough to get the shade as appears in the bullet.
Longevity: this lipstick doesn’t stay on me for more 2.5-3 hours because it’s not a very bright color as such. It requires a touch up very often else it starts fading completely, leaving no stain behind on my lips since my lips are kind of pigmented..

• The packaging is what I just do not like about these lipsticks. If not better, the packaging could have at least been similar to the quality of packaging of Maybelline Water Shine lipsticks.

• Settles into fine lines on lips.
• Has a weird scent.
