Maybelline New ColorShow Lipstick – Orange Icon 308 Review
Price: Rs. 299
Maybelline has launched 32 new ColorShow Lipsticks lately, although I am not a fan of ColorShow lipsticks due to their poor wear time and color payoff 🙁 but still gave a thought to atleast try 1-2 shades from this range. I chose two colors one is Orange Icon and other is Midnight Pink.
You can find more info and swatches of the entire range at the official website, link is below:

Well there is nothing unique to write about the packaging, you can differentiate the lipstick colors from one another with the help of the color strip provided at the middle. Orange icon is a very light orange color with a balm like finish on lips. In hand swatch it looks nice and rich color but on lips it is just too sheer 🙁
Texture/formula: The texture of the lipstick is soft and buttery, it easily glides on lips. The formula is fine as well, it keeps the lips moisturised and does not settle into the lip lines.
I am disappointed by the color payoff, Orange Icon is too sheer and does not cover the lips fully even after 2-3 swipes, so it is not a shade for the pigmented lips. However if you like glossy and balmy lips then this shade is for you. But do not expect good wear time as it does not survive meals. On me it stayed for 2-3 hours and vanishes completely after a full meal.
My verdict and Rating: 2/5. Very disappointed by the color payoff and poor wear time. Will not recommend it to anyone 🙁
