Today I’m going to review the Maybelline ColorShow Lipstick in Forever Mauve. I’m not a big fan of mauve lip colors but this somehow caught my attention and I just had to bring it home with me!

The lipstick comes in a black bullet with a colored strip running in the center. The color actually determines the family of color. This makes it easier to spot in my lipstick collection.
It’s a mauve color which has slight pink tone to it. The color looks nice on my skin tone. The shade is sheer in pigmentation but you can build up color in 2 to 3 swipes. The coverage is quite opaque.
The texture is creamy and smooth, really easy to apply. It’s a little glossy but not something that will melt away.
The staying power is not really great, it only lasted for 2 hrs on my lips, and actually I was not expecting anything more than 2 hrs with this formula. It leaves a nice stain behind after 2 hrs.
It’s really moisturizing on the lips, especially good if you work in an AC environment or during the dry winter months.
I quite like this lipstick. I would give it a 4/5. All this good stuff in an amazing price of Rs. 299!
