Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipcolor : Flaming Fuchsia ~ Review & Swatch

 

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.

 

Price: Rs 325 for 3.9 g

 

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.

 Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint Review

Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint come in an interesting tube packaging with squeeze applicator. The screw cap for applicator is matte black and looks chic. The applicator is slanted and applies to corners and outlines easily. The applicator is perfectly shaped so there is no need of using a brush while applying these. The tube is tiny and can fit anywhere. With this applicator, these lipsticks can be applied as stain, or as full fledged lipstick. The lip paint tubes are color coded so they are easy to sort if you have multiple shades. These lipsticks apply creamy/ glossy but becomes matte after blotting or transferring while eating/drinking. Once they become matte, they leave a gorgeous long lasting color which look like a proper lipstick. These feel moisturizing  and do not make the lips dry. These are super comfortable to wear. The mattified lipstick  easily lasts 7-8 hours on me after which it leaves a beautiful even stain. The stain sits on the lips until removed by a makeup remover.

When freshly applied, these will transfer to anything your lips even barely touch. That is because they are glossy when applied. But even after mattifying these lipsticks still transfer a little bit.

Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint have fruity smell which reminds me of tutti fruity 😀

The pigmentation of these lip paints is amazing. It can be applied like a stain with the product on applicator only without squeezing out the actual lipstick. The intensity of color is buildable. I have swatched these lipsticks with full color and intensity. These are super long lasting and you should consider this as they are super comfortable on lips and can be applied creamy as well as matte. These lipstick apply evenly and do not settle into fine lines.

 

Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint in shade 05 You Red-Me is a beautiful pinkish red color with creamy finish. When freshly applied it looks more red but settles to a pinkish stain after going matte. This shade is more glossy than Vamp Red.

06 Vamp Red is deep red in color. When freshly applied, it looks a little maroonish red (oxblood red) but settles to cherry red stain after mattifying.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall,Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense Lip Paint is creamy and glossy to apply but becomes matte after transfer/ blotting. Once matte, the lipstick doesnot budge and color stays for 8 hours. The lipstick feels comfortable on lips. The pigmentation is amazing and it can be applied as stain or full intense lipstick. The tube packaging is attractive and can fit in jeans pocket if you don’t like to carry bags. The applicator is perfect and applies to corners and outlines easily.  Shade 06 Vamp Red is deep red, almost oxblood like when freshly applied but settles to cherry red color after mattifying. Shade 05 You Red-Me is pinkish red on application but goes almost pink after mattifying. The shades will suit all skin tones. You should consider these lip paints if you are looking for long wearing lipsticks.

Maybelline Colorshow Party Girl nailpolish ~ Rock the Night 117: Review & Swatch

 

 

Glitter nailpolishes scream party and with all the festivity in the air, they are perfect to adorn at this time of the year. Party Girl collection from Maybelline colorshow has been around for sometime and I have already reviewed 3 of the shades: Tequila Sunrise, Fireworks and Party Lights. In this post I am reviewing another gorgeous shade: Rock the Night 117

Pssst! My love for Glitter nailpolish can be seen HERE 😀

 

Price: Rs 175 for 6 ml

 

Maybelline Colorshow Party Girl nailpolish Rock the Night 117 Review

Rock the Night 117 is a beautiful dark blue nail polish with dark blue  hexagonals and golden shimer suspended in a sheer blue baseThe nailpolish has golden shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful golden-peacock bluish sheen. Maybelline Party girl range of nail polish is loaded with the glitters which remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish. The dark blue hexagonals against a blue base gives an overall  diffused shimmer to this shade.

The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottle with black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. It takes 2 coats for full color intensity as one coat is slightly sheer. But if applied properly,  one coat looks beautiful on its own.

Rock the Night 117 being glitter nailpolish, its removal can be quite a pain, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE.

The tip wear/chipping starts after 3-4 days, which is quite okay, as I don’t expect these polish to be super long lasting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Rock the Night 117 is a beautiful dark blue glitter nailpolish with a golden-peacock blue sheen. This nailpolish is loaded with glitter and 2 coats give full coverage. This is a beautiful color to glamour up the nails. Party Lights range of Maybelline Colorshow is my favorite so far and I will keep on repurchasing the shades.

Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color : Sunkissed~ Review, Swatch

 

Maybelline has two range of nailpolish: Colorshow (with its multiple variants like THIS and THIS and THIS) and Superstay.  While I love Colorshow collection for its wide range of colors, I LOVE Superstay range for everything else one looks for in a nailpolish. As the name says, this range of nailpolish is supposed to be long wear and give Gel finish. I have already reviewed my favorite Blue nailpolish HERE and here I am reviewing a gorgeous pastel peach color – Sunkissed 873

 

Price: Rs 350 for 10 ml

 Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color 7 days: Sunkissed Review

Unlike colorshow range, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail polish comes in a flat, glass packaging with white cap. The shade name is stickered at the top and the list of ingredients is at the back in peel off sticker. Formula wise, these nailpolish are amazingly pigmented and creamy with glossy, plump finish. These are fast drying nailpolish and do not pose a problem if you are in a hurry. I am really impressed with the brush. I absolutely hate thin brushes in nailpolish. The flat, wide, U-curve brush makes the application breezy and less prone to error, especially around cuticles. Two coats give full pigmentation.

Sunkissed is a stunning pastel peach color. I LOVE pastel colors and this nailpolish is one of my fav, especially for summers (as the name suggests- Summer Bliss ).

Now coming to the Superstay claim, this nailpolish stays for 5-6 days with minor tip wear without a top coat and you can prolong the wear time by applying a top coat. I am a nailpolish hoarder and I know which nailpolish has better stay and which doesn’t. This nailpolish definitely is a win in long stay department.

The higher price of this range of nailpolish (as compared to Colorshow) is totally justified. You will feel the difference between the two range as soon as you start to apply these.

Word of caution though, the shade Sunkissed makes skin look a tad deeper in complexion.

In the swatches below, I have applied Colorshow Gold digger nailpolish in shade Bling Thing as top coat.

I have applied this nail polish as part of a nail art HERE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail color in shade Sunkissed is a beautiful pastel peach color which is ideal as spring/summer shade. The formula is creamy and highly pigmented. The wide, U-shaped brush makes the application incredibly easy. These are long lasting nailpolish and will last for 5-6 days at least if you wear it with a top coat. The formula is top notch. This shade however can make your skin tone look deeper. I love this shade nonetheless and I will definitely repurchase it.

Every girl must own a few glitter polish to glamour up the nails every now and then, and Maybelline has some amazing glitter nailpolish selection. Maybelline launched Party Girl collection last year in their Colorshow range. This range has gorgeous glitter shades with different color palette. I have already reviewed two shades of this range before : Tequila Sunrise (1st in pic above) and Fireworks (3rd in pic above). In this post I am reviewing another beautiful shade: Party Lights 118

 

Price: Rs 175 for 6 ml

 

 

Party Lights 118 is a beautiful silverish purple color nail polish with purple hexagonals and glitter suspended in a purple baseThe nailpolish has silver shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful silverish sheen making it look like foil nailpolish. This nail polish is loaded with the glitters which remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish. The purple glitter and hexagonals doesnot look stark against the base color like in other shades of this range. Instead, it gives a beautiful diffused shimmer to this shade.

The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottle with black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. It takes 2-3 coats for full color intensity as one coat is slightly sheer.

Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color : Uptown Blue~ Review, Swatch

 

Maybelline has another range of nailpolish besides its Colorshow range- the Superstay range of nailpolish. This range of nailpolish is supposed to be long wear (as the name says) and give the finish of Gel nails. I have a few shades from this range and in this post I am reviewing a gorgeous pastel blue color – Uptown Blue 

 

Price: Rs 350 for 10 ml

 Maybelline Superstay Gel Nail Color 7 days: Uptown Blue Review

Maybelline Superstay Gel nail polish comes in a flat, glass packaging with white cap. The shade name is stickered on the top and the list of ingredients is at the back in peel off sticker form. Formula wise, these nailpolish are amazingly pigmented and creamy with glossy, plump finish. These are fast drying nailpolish. Apart from the formula, the next impressive thing about this nailpolish is the brush.The flat, wide, U-curve brush makes the application breezy and less prone to error, especially around cuticles. One coat is sufficient for full pigmentation if you apply carefully, but I have applied two coats in the swatches below.

Uptown Blue is a gorgeous surf blue color. You can call it pastel blue, or sky blue, but is more brighter and vibrant than either. I LOVE pastel colors and I love Blue so I had to but this shade (along with another pink color, shown in pic above) as soon as I spotted this at the Maybelline counters.

Now coming to the Superstay claim, this nailpolish does stick around for 5-6 days with minor tip wear, but I dont apply top coat and you can easily prolong the wear time by applying a top coat. I am a nailpolish hoarder and I know which nailpolish has better stay and which doesn’t. This nailpolish definitely is a win in long stay department.

Even though the price is more than the Colorshow range, so is the quality of this nailpolish. The higher price is totally justified. You will feel the difference between the two range as soon as you start to apply these.

Maybelline Superstay Gel nail color in shade Uptown Blue is VERY similar to the Maybelline Colorshow nailpolish in shade Blueberry Ice. If you are looking for a dupe, this is it. Even though they look similar, Uptown Blue is brighter than Blueberry Ice, even though it is not shown properly in pic below. And formula is any day better than the Colorshow one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, Maybelline Superstay Gel nail color in shade Uptown Blue is a beautiful surf blue color, (brighter than sky blue), the gorgeous vibrant pastel color making it ideal as spring/summer shade. The formula is creamy and highly pigmented. The wide, U-shaped brush makes the application incredibly easy. These are long lasting nailpolish and will last for 5-6 days at least if you wear it with a top coat. The formula is so nice that I have already bought a couple of more shades from this range. If you like such vibrant, pastel shades then definitely check this shade out, you will not be disappointed!

Maybelline colorshow Bright Matte nailpolish: Lively Rose ~ Swatch & Review

 

Maybelline has just launched a new range in their Colorshow nail polish: Bright Mattes collection. There are 6 shades in this range, all in the shades of red family- orange, red and pink. I have 2 shades with me and I have already reviewed the shade Peppy Pink earlier.  Here I am reviewing a beautiful bright red shade:  Lively Rose. 

 

 

Price: Rs 175

Maybelline Colorshow Bright Matte Lively Rose review

Maybelline Bright Matte collection comes in same packaging as the Colorshow range except that the bottle is frosted which looks chic. The shade name is stickered on the top and it looks a bit cheap as compared to other colorshow range which shade name engraved on the cap. The brush is short but okay,  though I would have liked a broader brush for matte collection, as short/thin brush leads to streaking which is more prominent in matte finish.

Lively Rose is a gorgeous coral-red  color with beautiful matte finish. The nailpolish is quite pigmented and one coat is sufficient to bring out the full color, still I have applied two coats in the swatches below. This is a bright, summery color and if you are looking for a bright orangish-red color, definitely check this shade out. This shade would suit all skin tones. The matte effect lasts for 2 days and it turns to normal finish after that. Matte nailpolish tends to chip early and I started to see tip wear, especially on my right (dominant) hand starting next day itself. On left hand, it started a bit late. Since the brush is thin, it led to streaking. But interestingly, it became normal as the matte effect started to fade after few days. Also, the color starts to deepen as the matte effect fades.

This range has only 6 colors, all in the shades of red family. I would have loved to see a wider spectrum of colors in this range. Even though the name says ‘Bright’, the range does not have bright colors except one or two (Lively Rose shade being one of them)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall this is a beautiful bright coral-red color and if you want to experiment with matte finish, definitely check this shade. Matte nailpolish tend to chip fast so this is not a long wearing nailpolish. Also, the shade range is narrow and covers only orange, pink and red. It would have been nice if it covered more shades.
