Here is another addition to the review series of Maybelline Colorshow creamy matte lip color and this time the color I have picked up is Mysterious Mocha. I have quite a lot of orange, pinks n corals in my vanity and was in search of a mocha kind of shade..after all a brown shade is must have in vanity of every girl. I was running out of MAC Mocha, although its one of my favorite lippies, MAC has sky rocketed it prices. So wanted to buy a budget friendly lipstick this time.
There are few more lipsticks of this range in my stash like firecracker red,pop of pink and rock the coral.I will share their review soon or may be just swatches because texture and finish is same for all the lipsticks.
About this lipstick: This lipstick has creamy texture when applied on the lips but starts drying up soon after the application to give a matte look. That is why the name creamy matte! As I suggested in my previous review of this series, one needs to moisture the lips before application to avoid patchy look. Matte lipsticks have the tendency to settle into fine lines of the lips and may give a bad flaky kind of look if lips are not prep up well.
Color needs to be built up in 3-4 swipes to show up on the lips. Staying power is average 3-4 hours, without having meals in between. Does not bleed or feel uncomfortable on the lips. Matte lipsticks rip off the hydration of lips so every time I have a matte lipstick on, I always apply a lip balm after removing my makeup to moisturize the lips.
To sum up I think for the price and quality, these lipsticks are a steal! These are priced at Rs.325 but I bought it for Rs. 290 from amazon.in.
Let me know in comments if you own any of the shades from this range.
