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!

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.
