Red lipsticks are very tricky to wear and choosing the right shade and formula can be an arduous exercise. From bleeding to staining the teeth, red lipstick goes everywhere! The Maybelline Colorshow red lipsticks are drugstore classics, and my favorite is the shade Big Apple Red (206).
The color of this lipstick is perfect for me, it is red but not too over the top and has very faint hints of pink that help the teeth look whiter and provide a softer effect. It looks a bit orangey in the bullet but on the lips it is more of a pink toned red that is very versatile and goes with a lot of outfits. The formula is a comfortable matte that lasts forever! It fades gradually but the color still stays on after 8 hours and multiple rounds of eating and drinking. It may bleed a little but that is true for any red lip color and something that can easily be rectified with a red lipliner. To top it all it smells like yummy candy!
Priced at INR 325 for 3.9 gms, this lipstick definitely qualifies as a beauty bargain. Also, if this shade is not up your street, there are several other color options in the same formulation to choose from! When it comes to drugstore lipsticks, you can’t really go wrong with the Maybelline Colorshow range 🙂
