Maybelline Color Show Velvet Matte Lipstick In Rock The Coral Review and Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello my munchkins!
How is everyone doing? With the changing weather here in Delhi, I had not been keeping well as off late! And you can only imagine how hard it can be for a lazy bum like me to accomodate college, studies, theatre (my new endeavour :P) as well as the duty of an assistant editor for such an esteemed blog! But i cannot thank my stars enough for making me acquainted with this darling soul Samyukta, who never did once complain for my lack of presence on the blog, and in fact asked me to take a day or two off and relax! I love you sam! So now that I am better, and ready to take the world, why not do it with a dash of super gorgeous lipsticks?

So as you have learnt by the title, today  have come up with a very interesting review; for the Maybelline Color Show velvet matte range of lipstick in the shade Rock The Coral!

What does Maybelline have to say?

From the loved Color Show Lipsticks, Maybelline New York is now launching 12 new lipstick shades now in Matte! With stunning hues of red, pink, brown and mauve, these 12 matte, moisture rich shades allow you to express yourself everyday. The ultra-care and super hydrating formula is light and gives you high coverage while caring for your lips. The heat resistant soft waxes in the product ensure texture integrity even at high temperatures. These matte shades have the right amount of moisture, a sweet fragrance and stay true without drying up your lips. Are you ready to show off your colorful sides?

Price and Quantity

INR 325 for 3.9 grams of product (yay!)


Packaging

If you have used color show range of lipsticks ever in your life (which I am sure you must have, atleast once) then you know exactly how the lipstick looks from the outside! Though there is one difference, that the regular black packaging is matte in texture and lacks that glossy sheen to it, as it is a matte textured lipstick! Other than that the lipstick is classy, sturdy and convenient to carry in your makeup bag!



Shade 

The name Rock the Coral very conveniently conveys the idea of a bright coral lipstick, and true to its name, Rock the Coral is indeed a very pretty coral shade which Indian Beauties can easily rock! Going in details, the shade is a warm toned coral pink which may look a little pale on deeper skin tones and even wash them out a bit! But for fair to medium skin tones it is a very wearable pinkish coral shade with strong coral undertones!


Texture

I love my mattes, and have a creepy obsession for creamy matte lipsticks--but not all mattes are meant to make you happy! *goes in the corner and cries*
I mean I cannot say I out right despise the formula of this lipstick, as it is workable to some extent, but if you have dry and chapped lips, do not even care to read ahead! The shade as pretty it might be, does not apply very well! It goes on patchy, and does settle into fine lines (even after exfoliation). I mean I love the shade and want to love the lipstick as well but the texture just does not let me love it whole-heartedly!


Pigmentation and Coverage

As I said, the shade applies a bit patchy and is also sheer-er than other shades of the range! Though it is very much buildable and can be easily layered to decrease the streaky lip look and also cover up any discolourations on the lips!

Staying Power

being on the lighter side of the spectrum, the shade does not last any more than 5 hours, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me! After 4 hours it starts to fade off from the inner corners of the mouth, but can be reapplied easily as touch up is not messy with this one!



So now that we have gone through each and every aspect of the lipstick, what do you think of this lipstick? Is it a yay or nay for you?

Overall Rating: 

4/5

Final Verdict

For me it is a yay, solely for the super pretty shade and semi matte finish. Though I would have given it a 5 on 5 had it applied smoothly and not settled into fine lines! :)

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
