Maybelline Color Show Ruby Twilight- Perfect Budget Red Lipstick

Hi Everyone,

How are you all doing? I know It been a month and I haven’t post anything on blog. Well, there are lot of things going on in my life. I hope all will be working out soon and I will give more time to my favorite thing in the world:  My Blog.

Today, I am going to review a budget red lipstick from color show range of Maybelline.  Maybelline launched color show range of lipsticks few months back in India. These are quite popular now and I think every girl should own one or two lipsticks from this range. Let’s talk about this in detail.

What Maybelline Claims:                        

Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is a fashionable intense lipstick, which comes in chic to vivid shades. Maybelline Color Show Lipstick is highly pigmented giving bold lips.

  • It stays for up to four to five hours.
  • The creamy texture is not heavy on the lips.
  • It does not smear or smudge.
  • It does not settle in line.
  • As its highly moisturized you don’t need to wear a lip balm.

Price: 299 for 3.9gm


My Take on Maybelline Color Show Ruby Twilight Lipstick:

Maybelline Color Show Ruby Twilight Lipstick comes in the classic black packaging. It has a band of red color on it so we can easily identify the color in multiple lipsticks. The cap closes with click which makes it travel friendly. I like the packaging, It is simple and classic. Nothing extra ordinary.

Maybelline Color Show Ruby Twilight Lipstick has smooth texture. It does not make lips feel dry. It can be worn without lip balm. It is quite moisturizing. It does not have any shimmer particles, yet it gives very glossy finish. It glides easily, does not tug while application. It is very creamy yet very light on lips.

The shade is very beautiful Ruby Red. It will suit to all fair and medium skin tones beauties. It is a blue based shade but it will go with all skin tones. You will need only one swipe to get the full coverage. I have slightly pigmented lips and one swipe was good for me to cover all the pigmentation.


The staying power of lipstick is 4 to 5 hours as it claims the same. It survives full meals as well. After 4 5 hours it fades evenly and leave a very beautiful tint behind. It smudges and transfers after sometime of application. It certainly does not settle in fine lines.  The tint can be removed with makeup remover only.

I quite like this lipstick keeping in the mind the price of these babies. This particular shade instantly brightens up my face and makes me look more fresh and young.

If you are looking for a budget Red Lipstick, I will definitely recommend it to you guys.
