Here's a review on Maybelline Color Show Lipsticks.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all leading department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets
Here's Maybelline's take on long- wearing lippies called Color Show. Wait, what's up with long- wearing lipsticks lately? Is this where the lippie trend is headed to this year? If yes then that's a great idea-it's totally what people in tropical countries need!
On another note, Color Show is a student- friendly lipstick line and a perfect starting point for makeup artists and enthusiasts because it's pretty good, but extremely affordable.
MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW LIPSTICKS IN DETAIL

The lipsticks come in a sleek acrylic tube with a touch of color. The colored part of the tube tell you if a particular shade belongs to either the Pink, Red, Nude, or Plum group.

MAYBELLINE COLOR SHOW LIPSTICKS IN ACTION
A tropical pink shade.
This sunny Pink shade reminds me of paradise. It's very pretty, albeit a bit too bright for school wear. Well, that's just the tita in me speaking-of course you can wear brights to school if you feel like it! :D
Cherry On Top
A cherry red shade.
This red is bursting with youth and vitality! Cherry reds are uplifting reds and I'd recommend that you keep one in your stash for times when you need an extra energy boost whether at play, work, or school!
A midtone Pink with a plum undertone.
By my standards, this is more Pink than Orchid so I don't know why Maybelline put it in the Plum category.
Anyway, Sweet Orchid is a neutral Pink that is safe to wear in all settings. I also noticed that it has a slight sheen to it so get this shade if you want that glossy effect for your lips, but without using actual gloss.
A berry shade with a slight pink undertone.
Now this is a very pretty berry shade, possibly the prettiest berry I've seen in drugstore brands. It's like a diluted, more demure version of MAC Rebel. :D
A warm Pink with a slight cherry red undertone.
Pinkalicious is what I would call the "Kolehiyala Pink" from this collection: it's subtle, but gives that much needed pop of Pink without making you look like the Mean Girl lol. :D
These are creamy lippies and they double as lip balms as well. Finish for all lipsticks is satin, but look ranges from lacquered, gel, and glossy, which I believe is caused by the type of pigments used and colors. It stays intact the whole day with very minimal fading, although it comes off completely after a meal--the saving grace here is it leaves an even stain on the lips so you don't really go lipstick-less with it and you don't have to bother about retouching right away. If you were to ask me though, I wish that the actual lipstick would stay on longer, but hey! It's only P165! :D
It has a uniform fruity scent, something that reminds me of Lychee-Strawberry and that's what I dislike about it-fragrance is just too heady for my liking. Nonetheless, Color Show is a pretty good range of lipsticks at a very affordable price. With these, you don't have to sacrifice a week's worth of allowance just to buy a good, moisturizing lipstick and if you're just beginning with your career in makeup artistry, these are great yet affordable lipsticks that you can start with.
