I think Maybelline is just one such brand in India, which can still be called a drugstore brand. The prices at which it launches its products is just amazing, so pocket friendly and you don’t have to think twice before buying it atleast.
Now this lippie is not mine but my sister’s, who’s by the way equally mad about lippies like I am J just that am a matte lover and she is a creamy lover.
Let’s start with the review now.

Packaging: the color show range comes in a shiny black packaging with a bright strip in centre which corresponds to the color family the shade belongs to. The packaging somewhat reminds me of old Lakme enrich satins. Anyhow its neither fancy nor bad. A simple black bullet.
Shade: Cheery crush, as the name suggests is a reddish cherry color. A color which would brighten even a dull face. Depending on your lip’s pigmentation, the shade might look different. On me its more red and on my sister, its more deeper cherry.
Texture: is a creamy lipstick lover’s delight. Super creamy and hydrating. This range can be a dry lips girl’s best friend. Being this creamy, the bullets tend to break from the bottom.
Pigmentation: to my surprise this lippie is awesomely pigmented too. It does not need more than 2 swipes to go completely opaque.
Being a matte lover, I would not have tried this lippie had my sister not got this. and I am glad I tried it. Really!
The shade looks nice reddish on my NC-25 skintone. Being creamy, this does not settle into lines or emphasize dryness, so the day I am in mood of red but lazy to prep the lips, I can easily wear this and am good to go.
Its also easier to apply as compared to matte lipsticks because it spreads well.
This particular shade can be worn across the age groups. Its that type of red which does not make you look auntyish type or mature.
I use only 2 swipes and am good to go. More swipes would make the lipstick to bleed from corners. So in case you need to swipe more than twice, do use a lip liner to secure it well.
The staying power is average not that good. Without a meal it would survive for 2.5-3 hours but a complete meal and it would be gone. Also being creamy, it transfers alot to cups etc.
Also, this range bullets tend to break from the bottom so store it accordingly.
