Today’s review will be on Maybelline’s Color Show lipstick. I have never owned any Color Show lipstick and it was about time I did because of the amazing reviews here on IMBB. I picked up 5 of them blindly seeing the swatch on some lady’s hand. Let’s get started with the review!
My Experience with Maybelline Red Carpet Color Show Creamy Matte Lip Color:
Packaging: These lipsticks come in the same packaging as the normal Color Show ones, but it is matte black to indicate that the product is matte. The plastic it comes has all the information about the product like the pricing and ingredient list. The red band indicates that the lipstick inside is a shade of red. I like how classy it looks, but I would have preferred if there was at least a Maybelline logo on it, but never mind. The packaging is nice, sturdy and travel friendly.
Color/Pigmentation: “Red Carpet” is a beautiful red shade that gravitates slightly towards pink. It might look like you are wearing a dark pink lipstick in some lighting. I like the shade but I wish it was more red than pink. I really like the pigmentation. You don’t need more than two swipes for a beautiful pout.
Texture: I really love matte lipsticks that are creamy and glide on easily. This one falls in that category. It’s smooth, glides on easily, does not highlight dry patches and slightly moisturizes the lips. I really love the texture of it.
Staying Power: It stayed on for a good 5 hours or so on me. You do have to re-apply it after 3 hours or so. It fades slightly with meals, but that’s okay. Thankfully, it doesn’t leave a stain behind.
Smell/Taste: It has a pleasant and very mild fragrance to it which is barely noticeable and once you put on the lipstick, you cannot even smell it. It has no taste whatsoever.
