Red lipsticks are something that are never enough for us.I love every shade of it.And,so,i decided to add one more shade of red lipstick into my stash.This time it’s Maybelline Color Show lipstick Burgundy Blend (Yes! Again Maybelline!).I was thinking of buying a decent dark red lipstick online and my search ended at it.I read so many good reviews about this burgundy blend so,decided to buy it.
Colour,Texture and Smell:
The colour is not what i thought it was.I thought it was a real burgundy colour with a brown under tone but the real colour is dard red with some pink undertone.Talkin about texture,it is creamy ,the lipstick glides over the lips very nicely.I really like its simple and sturdy plastick packaging.There is no specific smell so don’t worry.
The lipstick is nicely pigmented and cover up my brown lips very well.It can be applied without any base on the lips.It suits my skin ,so, i can say that it suits dusky skin!Only one good swipe cover up all the pigmentation.It does not dry my lips.The staying power is 4-5 hours if you don’t eat at all.The colour transfers a lot so,you also have to take care of that too!Also,it does not dry the lips.
The price is also reasonable and for this pigmentation,it is really worth a try.I would suggest you to apply it with lip brush,if you have, to avoid any mess.It is a nice shade for special ocassions,parties and marriages.I also some times wear it during daytime by making it matte.I think it is a perfect colour for the spring.
- Pigmentation is very nice
- Decent price
- Perfect for special occasions
- Will suit every skin tone
- Doesn’t make the lips dry
- Doesn’t bleed
- Staying power is also great
- Not the exact colour that is mentioned
- transfers a lot
I totally recommend it even if it’s not a real burgundy because it is a very rich and pigmented shade.But,if you want a true burgundy colour,don’t buy this.
Price: Rs.299(You can get it at cheaper price online)
