Maybelline New York India's Color Show lipsticks - Orange icon and Cherry Crush

Color show nail polishes have almost become synonymous with bold, beautiful colors. Maybelline New York India has decided to extend the brand to lip colors as well. Now, you can experience a huge palette of vibrant colors to your lips as well with the new Color Show range of Lipsticks as well.The Lip Colors, Maybelline New York India claims to bring the catwalk colors to the sidewalk, just for you. 

What the brand claims?

The all new Maybelline Color Show Lip Color range has 32 vibrant moisture rich shades that enable you to express yourself every day. They give a shade for your every mood; you can now show your independence with reds, power with mauves, playful side with pinks & warmth with browns. These 32 intense colors suit all Indian skin tones.

The main four color families are:

According to Maybelline, the lipsticks offer the following:

What do I feel about the product:

The product comes in a sleek black packaging with a thin transparent band reflecting the color family. The lipsticks have a pleasant smell and glide easily on the lips. The texture of the lipsticks feel like a lip balm and provides an intense moisturizing effect to the lips which last for a good 4-5 hours on my lips. The lip balm like texture is a blessing for people with dry lips like me !! The lipsticks are well pigmented and provide a rich color with 2 strokes. 

I got to review the Orange Icon and Cherry Crush shade to review. The Orange Icon is a nice peppy color while Cherry Crush a reddish pink color with a warm undertone.

The lipsticks are priced at Rs.299 for 3.9g.

Pros and Cons at a glance:


  • The range offers a huge variety of colors; you are sure to find the perfect match for your skin tone
  • It is extremely easy on the pocket and will be a sure hit among the younger generation. 
  • The lip balm like texture provide enough hydration to your lips which lasts for a good 4-5 hours. You can easily go without a lip balm even if you have dry lips
  • The lipsticks give you a rich color with just 2 strokes

Had it been a higher on the price bracket, I would have complained about the staying power. However, at just Rs.299, I can't complain at all

I will recommend this range to all girls who love to try on different lipstick shades. I am sure you will find a shade for all your moods at an extremely affordable range. Please go and try out the shades at any of the Maybelline counters, you will love it. :)
