Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick in Orange Icon (4) Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick in Orange Icon: Swatches & Review

Maybelline Colorshow nailpaints made me realize that inexpensive things can be sometimes very very good. I had hoarded their nailpaints a lot (and I am sure many of you have done the same). So when I saw the newly launched version of the lipsticks – I had to try these. I had recently lost my favourite Orange Colorbar lippie Obssesed Orange while on a holiday – so I had to anyway pick up an orange one. I therefore chose this one(Orange Icon) – . However I spotted a wide range of other beautiful colors as well.You can read more here 

Color: The color will suit any warm toned girls. It is an easy shade of orange to carry by Indian beauties. It tends to look a tad pinkish on my lips under some lights – which I don’t really like but it could be just my lip color.

Packaging: Basic black with a rose gold border. Nothing fancy but easy to travel with.

Quality: SUPERB – just one word. Nicely pigmented, shows up in one swipe and very moisturizing. It doesn’t even leave back a stain – so very easy to remove as well.

Staying power: 4-5 hours.

  1. Pigmented – shows up in one swipe
  2. Pocket friendly
  3. Moisturizing – no need of balm
  4. Wide range of colors
  5. Stays for 4-5 hours


  1. Still haven’t been released in India (Why Maybelline why??? Haven’t we shown enough love to your nailpaints to deserve this??)

Rating: A

Price: Malaysian Ringgit 17.90 (INR 340 approx) . Not yet released in India

Recommendation: These are great budget buys and Given a chance I would buy most of the colors. Orange Icon is a lovely colour that instantly adds brightness and warmth to the face and is likely to suit most Indian skintones

Maybelline has been launching some great products recently (talking about the Colorsensational lipsticks and Colorshow nailpaints) and this one looks like a great lipstick. Will give it a try.

How to feel and look ‘put-together’ in a jiffy: OOTD
