Maybelline has a WIDE range of lipsticks and Colorshow range has been around for sometime. The range has 12 matte colors and I picked up two shades from this range quite a while back and somehow I could not get myself to review these. Both the shades are absolutely gorgeous and wearable. In this post I am reviewing the shade Flaming Fuchsia.

Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipcolor Flaming Fuchsia Review
Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipcolor comes in black matte packaging with color coded band at the centre. The band doesnot code the actual shade but only the color family. This is a normal swivel up bullet packaging. The shade name is stickered at the bottom of the bullet.
As the name says, the texture of these lipsticks is creamy matte. It glides on the lips easily and gives opaque coverage in single swipe. It does not feel drying at all and is super comfortable to wear. It is prone to transfer though, since it is not complete dry-your-lips kind of matte. It has a fruity smell which does not linger for long. The lipstick gets into lines after sometime and accentuates the dry flaky bits so exfoliate the lips before applying.
Flaming Fuchsia color from this range is love at first sight for me. I didn’t even intend to buy another pink lippie but when the pushy SA swatched it on my hand I couldn’t help not buy this. I donot regret buying this one bit and will probably keep on repurchasing. Flaming Fuschia is a super vibrant poppy pink color which borders on being neon, but is still totally wearable. It is much better in real and the swatches dont do justice to the beautiful color. If you are in hunt of a vibrant pink lipstick, do check this out. I cannot emphasize enough how gorgeous this color is.
Price wise, this is a pretty good buy. Not too expensive and lasts a long time. Quality and pigmentation is superb. It lasts 4-5 hours which is okay as it doesnot claim to be long lasting. Plus the texture is velvety matte and not super matte which makes it fade earlier than other matte lipsticks. It fades to a beautiful pink stain.
Overall, Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte lipsticks are creamy and velvety matte in texture which glides easily on the lips. These are quite hydrating and super comfortable and do not dry out the lips. It lasts for 4-5 hours with meals after which it fades to a beautiful stain. Flaming Fuschia is a gorgeous vibrant fuschia color which is unlike any other pink lipstick I have seen. It brightens up the face and will suit most Indian skintones. I will definitely repurchase this as I am in love with the beautiful vibrant color.
