Hello beauties!

Recently I bought some stuff from Maybelline and ever since I have fallen in love with their new Color Show Creamy Matte Lip Color range. The staying power of this collection might be a little low but the formula is the thing that makes you fall in love with it. So today’s review will be on another Maybelline lipstick in the shade ‘Mysterious Mocha’. I already own three shades from this collection. I love natural shades as my every day lip color, so I love this shade the most.

With dazzling tones of reds, pinks, browns and violets, these 12 matte, moisture loaded shades permit you to convey yourself on a daily basis. The super hydrating formula is delicate but also provides you with high coverage while being gentle on your lips. These matte shades have just the correct amount of moisture, a delicate scent and stays intact without even drying up your lips which almost all matte lipsticks do. It appears to be very reasonably priced, according to its superiority.

Packaging:

The packaging looks much related to the previous Color Show range. This creamy – matte lip color appears in a black casing with a slight matte surface which represents that it’s a matte collection. It also comes enclosed with a plastic packaging which shows all the information about the merchandise. At the rear of this product, there is a color hinted sticker, which makes it easy to recognize the shade. In general, the packaging is absolutely easy to hold but it could have been better.

It’s an ideal, natural, light coffee shade with pink undertones. This is not a warm brown shade; it looks like a nude brown shade on the lips. I have a preference over this sort of shade for my every day use. The shade is great for office going girls. It looks like a very formal color.

Application:

One or two swipes can put up a good tint on the lips. I love the coloring of this shade. It gives you a pleasant matte finish. It doesn’t include any shine and in no way looks sparkly or shiny. It has a good, creamy formula which keeps the lips hydrated. It effortlessly glides on the lips.

Staying Power:

It stays for about 6-7 hours properly on my lips, but after some 3 hours I require to reapply as it begins to fade from the middle of my lips. It does transfer slightly with meals. But, it doesn’t patch up into the fine lines. It never leaves any mark on my lips. It is effortless to take away with any remover.

On the whole I love this nude brown shade. This is a shade you ought to have in your lipstick set. It goes wonderful with a smokey eye makeup or even with a natural makeup look. Also, the blend of creamy formula & matte texture is really remarkable.
