Maybelline Colorshow Orange Icon Lipstick Review 1

The Maybelline color show orange icon lipstick has been enriched with an ultra care hydrating formula which doesn’t fade or bleed even in extreme heat and humidity. The shades are true matte and don’t dry out your lips. They have 32 glossy shades in the color show line with stunning hues of red, pinks, browns and mauves. These shades have been designed to suit all Indian skin tones. These shades blend like butter.

How to use

For best results, start from the inner middle portion of your mouth and gradually develop it towards the outer ends. Fill in and swipe generously for a bolder look. It can be applied with a lip liner to give more plumped up lips.

My experience with Maybelline Colorshow Orange Icon Lipstick

Maybelline Colorshow Orange Icon Lipstick Review 2


It comes in their usual signature style lipstick container with a top cap which can be opened to reveal the lipstick. The bottom can be twisted to allow more of the product. It is cutely packed and can be carried easily.


Depending on the shade, the fragrance varies. This particular shade has a coconut and berry fragrance.


I randomly visited the Maybelline stores in some mall, wherein I came across this beautiful orange shade. I tried it and I was super impressed. I didn’t buy this in the store itself since I knew nykaa would have huge offers on these and I was absolutely right. I came back and realized it was on offers. I got it for 25 percent less than the original price. I use this product during the afternoons when there Is extreme heat and fortunately, this color doesn’t melt or bleed and stays for a really long time. Since it is glossy, it keeps the lips hydrated, by glossy, I mean it has a moisturizing formula. It doesn’t have any glitters or shiny effect associated with it. Basically, I love this shade and I have become a huge fan of these orange lipsticks too.

Overall performance of Maybelline Colorshow Orange Icon Lipstick


  • Great color payoff
  • Doesn’t bleed
  • Stays for really long (6 to 7 hours)
  • Doesn’t dry out
  • Doesn’t crack the lips
  • Keeps the lips hydrated and supple
  • Super affordable
  • Easily available in stores
  • Huge range of shades

  • Contains lead

People who use lipsticks regularly should avoid smacking their lips since most of the drug store as well as high-end brands contain large amounts of lead. If this lead enters our body, it is extremely harmful. The con I mentioned here is just a word of caution. It doesn’t mean I am going to stop using these lipsticks. I just make sure never to smack my lips.

Would I repurchase or recommend?

Yes, I am definitely going to recommend this product to all the beautiful girls out there. I won’t repurchase the same shade but surely try all the other shades. These lipsticks are a must have in this season and can be used during any time of the day. I would give this product a 5/5 owing to its super-affordable price as well as the amazing color payoff. The amazing part is that these colors will suit any and every skin tone. Most importantly, these shades have been particularly designed to suit the Indian skin tone.
