Hello beauties! If you read my Maybelline mini-haul here, you know that I got these babies as a prize from an Instagram contest courtesy of Martha (The Beauty Junkee). The contest was very simple, you just have to repost Martha’s Instagram photo for you to have an entry. Simple mechanics but awesome goodies!
Big thanks to The Beauty Junkee herself.
I am happy with the prizes because Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands.

Nothing is special about the packaging as they are enclosed in a black plastic case with a little color coding at the center. I love that the cap click shuts firmly and secured. Colorshow lipsticks have 27 shades divided into four categories: noble nudes, perfect pinks, classic reds, and proactive plums.
Orange Icon is a bright coral shade with pink undertone.
True Toffee also belongs to noble nude and darker version of Chic Peach, in my opinion. This is also my favorite among the three shades.
Texture-wise, it has a smooth and creamy consistency which makes the application easy peasy.
I love the fact that it is very hydrating to keep your lips moisturized. Also, it is pigmented that you can see the shade for just one swipe except for Chic Peach which has a sheer finished that you have to put the extra layer to cover the color of your lips.
I was impressed that it stayed 4 – 6 hours on my lips with meals. On the side note, you have to check yourself from time to time as the product stayed on my lip lines. And since it has a creamy texture, it does transfers. One tip is to dab your lips in a tissue paper to absorb the oil and apply another layer for a perfect pop of color.
Will I repurchase them? Yes, but will buy other shades.
Given that it is very pigmented, has great lasting power and super affordable, this is definitely a must-try! This is also a perfect start for those who want to build their own makeup collection.
