I'm so sorry that I've been MIA recently. Work is officially stressful! Last week i got 2 events to handle. Thank god they are finally over and i can finally take a breather. At least, i hope that i can take a breather. Whatever it is, Raya Break is coming soon and i'm excited! So without further ado, today i'm reviewing the Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick in True Toffee. These lipsticks are fairly new. I think they came out like around 1 or 2 months ago. These lipsticks can be found at any Guardian stores. SO far, i have not seen it at any Watsons or any other pharmacies for that matter. I've ONLY seen it in Guardians.
Anyways, Maybelline ColorShow Lipsticks comes with a wide range of colour selection. They have it all. From nudes to pinks, to corals and reds and also purples! So basically you'll be able to find any colour of lipstick that you desire. I got the colour #301 True Toffee which is a orange-brown lipstick. At first, i thought that lipstick will be a gorgeous nude colour. BUT, i was wrong. There is nothing nude about this lipstick. It's straight orangey brown. Not that i'm complaining. I do like orange-ish lipsticks. It's kinda similar to my L'Oreal Moisture Matte lipstick in Peachy Brown.
These Maybelline ColorShow lipsticks are retailed at RM 17.90. These lipsticks are SO CHEAP! Okay, let's not talk about the quality first. This lipstick is so inexpensive! A usual Maybelline lipstick is already cheap. And those usually retails at RM 29.90. Imagine this ColorShow lipsticks? It's the same price as some of the SilkyGirl lipsticks.
The Maybelline ColorShow lipsticks have a creamy finish. It's definitely not matte. Some of them are also frosty. I'm not a fan of those frosty ass lipsticks. Ain't nobody can pull off frosty shiny lips! Lol. Anyways, the lipstick is opaque as you can see in the picture below where i sawtched the lipstick on my hand. The pigmentation of this lipstick is very good. You would expect a RM 17.90 lipstick to be sheer and lip-balm-like, right? But not this one. These lipsticks are amazing. Below is a lip swatch of the lipstick.
The only downfall about the Maybelline ColorShow lipstick to me is the SCENT! It has this weird FRUITY scent to it. You guys know how much i hate fruity scents right? And the scent is pretty strong. Like when i apply it on my lips, for a few minutes i can still smell it. And that's a big no-no for me. I hate fruity scents. That's why i didn't like the Bobbi Brown Limited Edition lipstick in Cosmic Lily. Scent matters to me. I rather the lipsticks have no scent than have a scent which i can't stand. Like Fruity scents. That's just nasty. Well, to you only, i guess.
Other than the scent, i actually like the Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick in True Toffee. The colour is amazing. It suits all kinds of skintone since it's very warm tone. You girls who are strapped for cash or have a budget, this lipstick is meant for you. It's cheap but the quality is relatively good and the shades are awesome. The packaging of the lipstick isn't the best either but at least it's still better than the Wet & Wild Lipsticks' packaging.
I give the Maybelline ColorShow lipsticks a rating of 7/10. Below is a picture of me rockin' True Toffee. What's your opinion on this lipstick? Yay or Nay? :D
That's all for this review. Till the next post then :)
