Maybelline ColorShow in Plum Perfect Review and Swatch

This lipstick smells amazing!

It's super affordable retailing and only PHP 160. It's very creamy, glides without a problem, applies quite sheer, but buildable, and you can achieve true color at two or three layers. Other people don't like the Color Show line probably because of the formula and staying power... but for me, I actually love the moisturizing formula of it. I sometimes apply this shade on top of my Sleek Mystic (which is super matte and can be drying) just to save my lips.

I know staying power isn't the best, but what do you really expect from a creamy lipstick? The color stays about 2 to 3 hours on the lips and needs reapplication after eating. The lighter shades in the line as I've heard from others suck in staying power, so I suggest you pick up the darker ones. This shade also stains the lips, and I actually like the outcome.

As of now, the shade range looks too close to one another, so let's all hope they release more shades. All in all, I really like this lipstick. Very moisturizing. Smells great. Close-click-feel on the cap. Easy to wear. And no, it doesn't seem to settle on the lines of my lips.
