My take on Maybelline Color show lipstick in404- Forever Mauve:


These lipsticks come in a black sleek and tiny tube. It’s made of very cheap quality, light weight plastic that appears to be easily breakable. Anyway, the middle of the lipstick denotes what family of colors it belongs to which is quite smart (brown for shades of brown, purple for shades of purple and so on), like transparent purple in this case because the lipstick is a mauve in color. The sticker at the bottom denotes the color name and number. All in all, it is easy to carry but not very sturdy.

Texture: the texture of these lipsticks is what I like most about these lipsticks. It’s super soft and creamy without being greasy or sticky. Also, it feels very light on the lips. 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. Also, since these lipsticks are kind of buttery in texture, I feel that these may easily melt in hot weather, good thing is the weather is changing so I don’t have to worry about keeping these in the refrigerator for now at least.

Shade: The shade is called Forever Mauve which is a nice mauve with pink undertones. It’s a very cute and and can be worn in any and every season. It is not matte nor is it really glossy but it’s the right texture, like a fusion between matte and gloss and I really like this about it since it gives a very pretty sheen to the lips. It gives decent coverage to lips and 2 swipes are more than enough to get the shade as appears in the bullet. All in all, it’s a great color if you want to sport bold lips without going too overboard

Longevity: this lipstick stays on me for 3-4 hours but only because it is a dark shade. It requires a touch up every 3 hours else it starts fading completely, leaving an awkward stain behind.
