MAYBELLINE NEWYORK INDIA again surprises us with their newly launched red shades and it’s the Big Apple Red Lipsticks collection. They have come up with 5 different sizzling hot red shades.


I love reds. I couldn’t stop myself from checking the swatches atleast. Being a red lipstick addict, I checked them all and one particular color stole my heart. So i picked it and here is a review of it.

Breaking the suspense, the shade which i picked is ‘PINK IN MY RED’. This is a Creamy Matte lipstick.


Now paint the town red with the new Color Show Big Apple Reds
• Red is a color that’s perfect for every occasion!
• Maybelline New York introduces Big Apple Reds a lipstick range of 5 lip colors inspired by the Big Apple City – New York.

The packaging is same as the ColorShow lipsticks. But but but…the outer plastic wrap is so cute. I wish that design could actually be on the lipstick pack. The ‘Big Apple Red’ lipstick comes in a matte black plastic packaging just as the regular ColorShow lipsticks.


I bought the shade ‘PINK IN MY RED’. now you can guess the colour too. Yes, it is a bright red color with pink(mostly fuscia) undertones. A perfect red for parties and night blasts.

The formula of this lipstick is creamy. It has a soft and smooth texture which glides smoothly on the lips. It has a nice floral/fruity scent to it, which is not overpowering at all. The texture of this Big Apple Red lipsticks is better than the previous Creamy Mattes lipsticks range. They dont feel patchy anywhere, they glide on easily and smoothly and evenly.

I am totally impressed by the staying power of this lipstick. It stayed for more than 5-6 hours on my lips even after snacking in between. Even though the lipstick fades off, it leaves a pinkish red stain on the lips which is actually amazing. This lipstick is transferable on to things.
