Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick – 402 Plum-Tastic Review

Shopping for lippies in winter can be so much fun. I love to buy vibrant colors for the winters as they add the much needed pop of color in the otherwise monotonous, cold wintry days. That being said, let me reveal the beautiful plum shade that I picked from the new Maybelline Colorshow range.  It’s a fantastic plum color. No wonder it’s aptly named plum-tastic.

My Experience with Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick – 402 Plum-Tastic:

The lip color comes in a rectangular black-coloured plastic package. It has a transparent colored strip in the center which indicates the color family that the shade belongs to.  The lipstick has a mild “coconutty” smell which I think most of the Maybelline lipsticks have, but the scent dies down in a few minutes.

The shade even though carries the name plum is more like a magenta color. It appears very bright in the case. But since the pigmentation is medium, it kind of tones down when applied to the lips. It is extremely moisturizing and creamy and glides on the lips like butter.  It does not bleed at all. Neither does it settle into fine lines. In fact it smoothens the lips to a certain extent. This shade contains fine silvery shimmer, but it does give the lipstick a frosty look.

The finish is quite glossy and stays so for about 3 hours, after which, it leaves behind a very pretty pink-colored stain which stays on for another couple of hours.
