Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipcolor- Bold Crimson, Madly Magenta: Review
MRP: Rs. 325
Maybelline has recently launched 12 matte, moisture rich shades and today I am going to review two of the shades i.e. Bold Crimson, Madly Magenta.
Packaging: The lipsticks come in black matte case with color coded strip for easy color recognition.
Bold Crimson: Bold Crimson is a dark red shade which would perfectly suit Indian Skin tone.
Madly Magenta: Madly Magenta is a blend of Magenta and light pink shade. This would suit medium to light skin beauties.
Fragrance: Mostly I am not bothered by scent of the lipstick, however in this case I found the scent too loud and strong. It vanishes soon but I found it bothersome.
Texture/formula: As these are creamy matte lipsticks so texture is creamy and smooth. Both of these shades do not highlight the dry and flaky lips. The formula is good as it keeps the lips moisturised during the wear time.
Pigmentation: Maybelline Bold Crimson and Madly Magenta both are very pigmented. You just need 2 swipes to build the color uniformly.
Longevity: Well, that is one big problem area. Both of these lipsticks have average staying power. They stayed on me for 2-3 hours and does not survive full meal. Without any meal or snacks in between, I had a wear time of 4-5 hours.
My Rating: 3.5/5
Verdict: Well, I have mixed feelings about these two. Both of the colors are ordinary and you can find the same in other brands as well. Wear time is a downside and so is the scent. But these can be considered as good creamy matte options in low Budget.
