Lipstick Review : Maybelline Watershine Icing Chocolate

Hello Beauties,

Today I’m going to review a lipstick from Maybelline called Chocolate Icing. I had got it few months ago and it happen to get my attention while I was browsing my stash.

Product Claims
Maybelline Watershine Lipstick – Chocolate Icing gives you brilliant color and splashy wet shine look. It has conditioners to keep your lips moisturized all day long. It glides smoothly and gives a glossy finish your lips.

I think I got it for 225 INR but heard prices are now up by 25 INR.

My Experience
I generally like Maybelline lipsticks. So, I bought Maybelline Watershine Lipstick – Chocolate Icing 96 to give it a try. This happened when I was on a hunt for a suitable brown shade. But it did not turned out what I expected it to be color wise. It is a shade from brown family but gives sheer coverage. It glides easily on the lips and gives a lustrous finish. Texture wise it is similar to a lip balm. I guess it acts like a colored lip balm with hint of shimmer. I like it for days when I can’t decide which color to go for. It feels very light on lips and keeps them soft. It imparts a brownish sheen to my lips and does not settle in fine lines. It gives nice color in just one swipe but doesn’t last too long. It stays for 2-3 hours without drinking or eating. You would have to apply lip color again for the color and sheen.

Since it is sheer and light in color it is suitable for office wear especially during festive occasion because of shimmers. I do not like the fragrance of this lipstick. For my nose it is a bit weird but some might like it :P


Creamy texture
Moisturizes well
Not a bad fragrance
Enriched with conditioners
Not at all drying
Might feel like too much on lip balm on lips.
Low staying power

This is how it looks on me :)


Final Verdict
Might not repurchase, though do not regret the buy. It is a good neutral shade for those days, with some bling ;)
