Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon Review
Maybelline had launched a range of color show lipsticks recently and I have the shade orange icon which seems to be very popular shade from the collection. I really like orange lip colors and different hues of orange hence got this shade.
Price– Rs 299
Maybelline Says – Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is a fashionable intense lipstick, which comes in chic to vivid shades. Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is highly pigmented giving bold lips.
- It stays for up to four to five hours.
- The creamy texture is not heavy on the lips.
- It does not smear or smudge.
- It does not settle in line.
- As its highly moisturized you don’t need to wear a lip balm.
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon
The packaging is just very basic, it comes in a glossy black case with an orange colored band in the middle. I expected better from Maybelline, but for the super affordable price it’s decent. The cap does not come off easily and the packaging is sturdy overall.
The lipstick has a strong sweet fragrance which I did not like at first, but the more I used it I got used to it. If you do not like fragrance in your lip colors then it might be bothering. The color definitely steals the show it is a bright bin the tube and was love at first sight, but to my surprise when applied it looks more like a coral shade with prominent hints of pink. I must say the name is misleading as it looks orange in the bullet only, on my lips it looks coral leaning more toward pink rather than orange. But nevertheless it’s a pretty wearable coral shade and a must have for coral lovers.
The texture is quite soft and needs to be handled with care, as with any extra pressure the bullet can easily break, I wonder it could be a problem during summers. But otherwise it is creamy and glides without any tugging on lips. It has a nice sheen more like a glossy finish sans any shimmer, there is no need to use a lip balm underneath. But due to the glossy texture is very prone to transferring.
Pigmentation is good but can be sheer for pigmented lips. Two layers and I get complete color payoff, for those who for darker lips may need to layer it more to show up well. I was quite happy with the lasting power considering it has a glossy finish, it lasted for 4 hours and even after that left behind a strong stain which was there on my lips for the entire day, I wish it was less staining but it totally depends on personal choice.
- Vibrant and flattering Coral Pink Shade.
- Quite pigmented.
- Stays for long time.
- Texture is very smooth and moisturizing.
- No heavy feeling on lips.
- Very pocket friendly.
- I wish it was less staining.
- Fragrance is quite strong everyone may not like it.
- Very transferable.
- Misleading name, color does not show up anywhere near to orange on lips.
- Prone to breaking from the base.
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon is a great budget coral lip color, I wish the color was true to its name but still it’s a pretty cheerful shade to have.
