Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Passionate Plum: Review and Swatches
Lip Crayons are one of the lip products that are now available in almost every brand. The first Lip Crayon type lip product that I tried years ago was Colorbar’s Take me as I am Lipsticks and I have loved them to the core. Since then, I have tried many Lip Crayons and liked most of them. The only problem I have with these crayons is that they are kind of difficult to sharp, especially if they are the chubby ones. Today I will be reviewing Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Passionate Plum.

These Lip Crayons, are chubby lip pencils which remind me of something I used to use for coloring as a child. The best part about these Maybelline Lip Crayons is that they are retractable which not only saves a lot of product that gets wasted during sharpening but also saves the hassle of carrying a sharpener (which I always tend to lose).
My Experience with Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Passionate Plum:
Color: The name Passionate Plum made me expect a deep plum colored lipstick, but the actual shade on the lips is more maroon than plum. Though the color is beautiful and perfect for fall and winter, it might not be everyone’s choice for a daily wear shade.
Pigmentation: The shade Passionate Plum is highly pigmented. One light handed swipe of the crayon is sufficient to give opaque color on the lips.
Texture: The product is easy to use and it glides on smoothly onto the lips. It does not dry the lips nor does it feels heavy.
Staying Power: This is the area where this lip product loses points. The color can stay for a good amount of time, but only if you do not eat or drink anything. The color is highly transferable and thus it loses its intensity everytime you drink something. A meal or even few snacks can make the color almost vanish (leaving only the outer line). Also, care must be taken while eating anything with this lipstick on, as careless eating can tend the color to transfer everywhere making you look like a monkey with a red chin.
Pros of Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Passionate Plum:
- Comes in a decent variety of colors
- Amazingly pigmented
- Retractable (No sharpener needed)
- Glides on smoothly onto the lips
- Easy to carry and Travel-friendly
- The shade Passionate Plum is a perfect color for fall and winter
- Very creamy
- Does not feel heavy on lips
Cons of Maybelline Color Show Intense Crayon Passionate Plum:
- No Ingredient List
- Not transfer proof which reduces the staying power
I do like the fact that these Lip Crayons from Maybelline are highly pigmented, easy to use and carry and can fit all budgets. Also, I really loved the way the shade Passionate Plum looked on me. I would love to try more colors from the collection in order to compare the formulation.
