Maybelline Color Show Lip Color in Pink Please Shade

The shade that I have here is in Pink Please. I would have imagine that it could be either sweet pink or bright pink shade.

The shade turned out to be soft red shade with pink undertone. The scent is really delicious, it carries sweet berry scent and also somehow reminds me the Bubbleyum watermelon bubble gums.Maybelline Color Show Lip Color in Pink Please Ingredients

I’m really thankful where this lipstick does not contain alcohol or paraben, however it does contain silica.

Here is how it turns out on my lips. It gives a wonderful coverage over my pigmented lips. It also gives quite a shine giving the plumper lips effect.

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop Lip Balm in Oh! Orange, Giving That Soft Orange Lips

There are times I opt for colored lip balms to get my look quickly done without much hassle plus it doesn’t stain cups as much as lipstick does.  Here I had the opportunity to try Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop Lip Balm.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Oh Orange

‘Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm incorporates a botanical extract made from Centella Asiatica. A small herbaceous plant native to India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Indonesia, Iran and other parts of Asia, Centella Asiatica has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. A formula that combines shea butter and vitamin E enables Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm to live up to it’s promises.

In just one application, Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm instantly moisturizes lips and continues to provide hydration for eight hours. These incredible results stem from a unique blend of powerfully moisturizing ingredients, including Vitamin E and a high concentration of shea butter.

The combination of vitamins in these hydrators, along with the Centella Asiatice plant, boost the look and feel of lips, keeping them smooth and supple for eight hours.’

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Oh Orange Tube

They come in three shades of Pink Shock, Berry Bomb and Oh! Orange. The one that I have here is Oh! Orange. The lip balm comes in a basic twist up lip balm packaging with hand written-like over the clear cover.

The lip balm also contains petrolatum, fragrance, alcohol and silica. If you are sensitive to these ingredients, I recommend to avoid this lip balm.

The lip balm gives a light tint of orange and the balm-effect shine. Moisturizing and waxy.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Oh Orange Application

Using this lip balm is just like other lip balms, just apply it whenever you need it. It does felt like other lip balms but this comes with a fruity citrus scent like an orange as describe by it’s name. It glides on easily once it ‘melts’ from the application.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Oh Orange Before & After

Above all…

 I often reach out for this lip balm recently to relief my dry lips without overdoing the color. Even so, the shade is not as shocking neon as it claims and it gives a delicate tint of orange shade. It does keep my lips moisturize but wears off bits by bits every time I drink from my cup and I just reapply whenever needed. The shade does transfer to my cup but doesnt’t stain it. It does moisturize my lips immediately right after application, however there isn’t much of a moisture lock since reapplying is needed after it wears off. This is a good deal of a basic colored lip balm for it’s price and function.

Price: MYR14.90

Availability: Nationwide leading pharmacies, selective departmental stores, super/hypermarket.

PROs:

  • Glides on easily
  • Keeps lips moisturize immediately
  • Doesn’t stain cups
  • Very affordable

CONs:

  • Lightly colored lip balm, no neon shocking shade
  • Poor moisture lock
  • Wears off after a few drinks of beverage

My Rating: 4/5

Review: Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple, An Edgy Shade Yet Sophisticated

Maybelline New York Color Show is a collection of the hottest fashion colors in convenient and advanced formulas in hot colors to brilliant must have pieces. The one I will be trying would be Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple.Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple

‘Always wanted quirky and edgy colored lined eyes? You can have it at your fingertips with Color Show Liner’s stunning range of smudge-free colors. Available in bold runway shades like turquoise, tangerine and metalic gray. Color Show Liner goes on in one smooth sweep to create a fashionable effect that is hot on the runways.’

Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple Tip

It is a retractable liner which definitely became as my plus point because I could put out the effort of sharpening it. Twisting it was smooth and just by looking at it, this eye liner seems convincing.

Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple Swatch
Noble Purple is a metalic deep purple with extremely fine glitters. To notice the glitters probably need a few seconds and to hit the right for it to reflect.

Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple Application

This is how I apply it and yes, I did tug my skin a little in order to get a smooth application. Do bare in mind where tugging is fine when the pressure is gentle and not too much of a gap. The eye liner does goes on smoothly easily and effortlessly.

Maybelline Color Show Liner in Noble Purple Before & After
I love how prominent the eye liner is and Noble Purple shade is not only an edgy shade yet it is very sophisticated. The application goes on easily and gives a very smooth line.

Above all…

I love everything about the eye liner for being retractable, glides on smoothly during application and color opacity. It is a very affordable eye liner with great color selections. However, I noticed by the end of the day (approximately 9 hours after application), the eye liner actually loses about 10% of it’s opacity. In other words, the eye liner faded but it did not smudge onto anywhere around my face at all. Everything came off with my makeup remover. Since it is so affordable, I don’t mind to purchase other shades.

Price: MYR17.90

Availability: Nationwide leading pharmacies, super/hyper market, selective departmental stores.

PROS:

  • Retractable
  • Glides smoothly during application
  • Great color opacity
  • Easy to remove with makeup remover
  • Very affordable
  • Doesn’t smudge

CONs:

  • Faded it’s opacity

My Rating: 4.9/5

Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++, Reasonable Lasting Coverage Up To 8 Hours

My favorite liquid foundation is running out soon and I happened to pick Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ on purchase with purchase at Watsons for MYR17.90. I have seen positive reviews on this and I thought ‘why not giving it a try?’. Without much thinking, I took it and made my payment. What to expect from this stick foundation?

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++

Skin clarifying stick with Mineral Clay effectively and visibly clears away appearance of pores, skin impurities and absorbs excess sebum for clearer healthy-looking skin.

8 healthy-looking skin benefits

– Improved clarity

– Lesser visible pores

– Lesser greasy shine

– Long lasting shine control

– Reduction in redness

– Smoother skin

– More even tone

– More radiant

Clear, healthy, flawless, bare skin look.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ Close Up

It comes with a twist up stick like a lipstick. On the fresh stick of this foundation, I could notice the top surface of the foundation has 2 finishes with one of darker and another lighter shade. The condition of the foundation is dented with the shape of the twist up tube.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ in Natural

Because I made the PWP with quick decision and they didn’t have testers by the counter. I had to pick between three shade and I took the second share which is labeled natural. I was thinking that I wouldn’t go  wrong with the shade natural.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ Ingredients

In the ingredients listing, I have noticed that there is salicylic acid which explains why it is suitable for those who have combination or oily skin. It helps to absorb sebum and treats acne, therefore this foundation also helps in treating skin at the same time.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ Swatch

When I thought Natural shade could possibly suit my skin, I had a second thought after swatching it and notice that it is much lighter than it seems. It seems like a beige ivory shade and normally, ivory is much suitable for fair skin shade and I would fall under in medium. The consistency is like a light weight cream.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ Application

The stick foundation glides easily all over my face without tugging even around the eye area although most of the time, we are not recommended to use stick foundation on the eye area. I have tried two ways to blend the foundation by using my finger and makeup sponge. Blending with finger is much quicker and leaves much dewy finish. With a makeup sponge, it absorbs a little of the foundation while blending, leaves less dewy finish and blends in more naturally. Personally, I do feel blending with makeup sponge gives a better result.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++Before & After

Please pardon my puffy and tired eyes. As you can see the shade Natural is way too fair for my skin and the SPF could also be a possible factor to make it fairer. It finishes off powdery with dewy of sheer to medium coverage. You could see some of my acne mark is still visible even after the stick foundation.

Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++Before & After Powder

I was worried that it could slip off easily, therefore I balance the shade with a darker powder foundation.

Above all…

In my opinion, I think that Maybelline Clear Smooth BB Stick SPF21 PA+++ is suitable for normal to combination skin. Though it claim to be able to control shine, my skin began to oil up after 2 hours of applying it and the factor affecting it is not only my skin but also the humidity level. Because it is in the stick form, I couldn’t deny that it is very easy to use and blending it is not a problem at all. It doesn’t feel heavy on my skin and the coverage could last for 8 hours, probably left with 60% at the end and I did blot my skin in between the hours. The lost of coverage is also due to in between blotting as it transfers quite easily. I would still continue to use as it is easily to use and I saved quite a bit of time since I normally do my makeup before heading out.

PROs:

  • Easily to use
  • Glides on without tugging
  • Travel friendly
  • Easy to blend
  • Reasonable coverage lasting power

CONs:

  • Doesn’t control oil as much
  • Transferable
  • A little dry around the eye area

My Rating: 4/5
