Maybelline Color Show Lipstick In Choco Latte Review and Swatches!

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick In Choco Latte Review and Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello munchkins!
So after about 4 months with ISLM and its readers, who all can actually claim to know me or say that they know the writer behind all those desi-toned posts? So if you just thought that oh yes, she is the mad woman who is in love with her nude lipsticks; girl I love you! Like, seriously, I just fell in love with you, and ofcourse, with one more nude lipstick from the house of maybelline! You knew that was coming, right?

What does Maybelline have to say?

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.

Price and Quantity 

INR 299 for 3.9 grams of product


Packaging wise the color show lipsticks from maybelline are very basic, but at the same time classy and sturdy! The glossy black packagiing looks no where near to cheap or anything though it is actually very cheap! And it has all the details on the base as well as a plastic coating with all the other details like ingredients list and expiry dates! Plus, it won't open on its own--so its safe!

Shade and Texture

Very honestly, I bought this lipstick just because I heard that it was a perfect nude lip colour for warm Indian skin tones! But now I know that internet can be deceptive! No, i do not mean that I do not like the shade or that it is not a perfect nude, but just for the olive to tan skin tones! The shade looks like a very pretty caramel brown with pink undertones but on my fair to medium skin tones it came out as a deep reddish-brown, or a brown with berry tones! But on deeper tones it would come out as a gorgeous soft brown!

Pigmentation and Colour Pay off

The lipstick is undoubtedly very pigmented. One swipe and the lipstick shows up in its full blown hue. One swipe gives a full blown colour but looks really natural as the shade is neutral, but it is pretty much buildable and can be worn as a sophisticated deeper nude lip shade!

Staying Power

This is one aspect which I down right hate about maybelline's color show range of lipstick is that they do not stay on the lips at all. I mean 3 hours tops, that too without food or drinks. And if you are going out to eat, then skip these color show lipsticks all together, or atleast mattify it down with a setting powder to make it stay a little bit longer. But the good part is that it does not fades evenly, and goes away all together without leaving any stains behind!

Do I Recommend?

Yes I definitely do! For the price and the shade it is a must have for Indian beauties!

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
