Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick (Plum Perfect and True Toffee) Review

February 09, 2016

Hi, what's up guys? I'm back with another lipstick review :) and those Maybelline again. That isn't new collection but I haven't talked about it in my blog. When I tidied my lipstick storage I found those two. I have two shades which are plum perfect and true toffee.

Let's talk about packaging, if I can say it's quite sturdy packaging, unfortunately I got the plum perfect melt T,T. The packaging was sealed when I bought that, I didn't know how could it melt. The packaging is simple, black with color shade tape. Ya, I can't say more, it's like usual lipstick packaging.

I got 2 shades, Plum perfect and true toffee. I checked at maybelline website, they have 15 shades that you can choose.

As you can see, the plum perfect has already melted. I guess the lipstick formula is bit mushy, because true toffee is also melting but it's better than the plum perfect.  I suggest you not to put this lipstick directly under the sunlight or in hot area.

The shades that I got is so pretty. I chose plum perfect because I'm crazy about plum shade lately so that's why I chose that shade but I rarely use that because I need to use lip brush, like I said before about the lipstick condition so If I applied directly without brush it will cause clot. True toffee is peach, I chose this shade because I read a lot about this shade and I just bought it *lol. However, when I swatch my peach lipstick collection, I has already had the similar color hahaha, you can see the comparison here [klik]

This is a moist lipstick it has glossy effect but it isn't too glossy. Sometimes when I bored with matte lipstick I like to use kind of lipstick. The texture is creamy, soft and easy to blend. Even though is moist but I didn't feel it has sticky or oily feeling. I'm not lip gloss person but I still feel comfortable with moist lipstick, which is satin finish. True toffee is easy to blend but be careful when you're layering this lipstick because adding some layers can make your lipstick uneven, you need to fix it with your finger or lip brush. The color is vivid, one layer the color will show off. You don't need to worry it will make your lips dry because it's super moist, I guess it contains moisturizer. How long it stays? It's moist lipstick and definitely transfer when you're drinking and eat so this lipstick will stay approximately 3 hours, because I can't hold without eat and drink in 3 hours*lol. Even though this lipstick transfer but the good thing is it's easy to remove.

Plum perfect is less glossy than true toffee, I love the finish look, this is not deadly matte but it isn't that glossy, maybe I can say it's satin finish. It also more blendable than true toffee. God, I love this color, the color suits for natural look if I applied tiny amount and when I want to be bold I can apply more layers and voila it becomes a pretty plum color. It has creamy and smooth texture. I felt that the plum perfect stayed longer than the true toffee, I guess because the plum perfect is more bold. This is also moisturize my lips. This lipstick will stay around 3-4 hours, but even the color has gone I still noticed the stain when I remove my makeup in the end of the day. The plum perfect transfer too as true toffee. Sometimes, I felt that true toffee is too creamy but the plum perfect is fine. Unfortunately, I got melt lipstick from the store,huhu
Both smell like sweet candy and it's nice, I don't have any problem about that smell.
How it looks in my face, both suit for simple look *I think :)
