Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte Lipstick Mysterious Mocha

My lipstick collection is broadly divided into mauvish brown shades, which are close to my lip colour and nudes. While I still haven’t found the perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone, I just added one awesome colour from the Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte lipstick Mysterious Mocha.

The product claims to “Show off your colorful side with the Color Show Lipsticks now in 12 Matte shades. From the loved Color Show Lipsticks, Maybelline New York is now launching 12 new lipstick shades now in Matte! With stunning hues of red, pink, brown and mauve, these 12 matte, moisture rich shades allow you to express yourself everyday. The ultra-care and super hydrating formula is light and gives you high coverage while caring for your lips. The heat resistant soft waxes in the product ensure texture integrity even at high temperatures. These matte shades have the right amount of moisture, a sweet fragrance and stay true without drying up your lips.”


The new range of Maybelline lipsticks are a must try. These creamy matte lipsticks stay put for a decent 3-4 hours without drying out lips much, as is the case with most matte lipsticks. Still, it makes sense to ensure your lips are well hydrated to avoid the lipstick from clinging to any dry part. Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte Lipsticks come in gorgeous 12 shades from bright pinks to subtle nudes. Being a person who loves nude shades I picked up a gorgeous nude shade – Mysterious Mocha.

The lipstick comes in a sturdy black plastic casing. I quite like that the pack and not the external peel off cover has the manufactured date. The shade Mysterious Mocha is a beautiful nude. Pair it with kohled eyes or a gorgeous smoky eye, this shade is a must try. This Maybelline lipstick is also deeply pigmented and all you need is a few swipes for full coverage. The con I see which is more so for this particular shade is that, it has a slightly chalky texture and it may not feel as comfortable to wear. Apart from this and wishing that the staying power were more, I love the Maybelline Color Show Creamy Matte lipsticks and I am looking forward to add more to my collection. Have you tried these gorgeous lipsticks yet?

    1. Yeah Sonali, but dabbing a little lip balm helps. I haven’t tried the REB range. What is your favourite shade from the REB range?

    1. With nudes it is always difficult to say. Some shades work well for some and some don’t. Got to try it to know.
