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.

My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon Packaging

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.

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick Orange Icon Pigmentation

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.
