Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review and Swatches
Just less than a month ago I got the best blogger mail delivered to my door, and you could say I was pretty shocked and ecstatic when I opened it to see that it was a wonderful makeup case full of some new Maybelline releases. In April I was asked to be a part of the #MaybellineSquad and I had to accept, but what was in store for me, I just didn't expect at all in the slightest. Contained within the makeup case was the new collection of the *Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks.
There are 8 beautiful shades within the range from vibrant pinks and bright reds through to wearable nude shades. All of the bases are definitely covered here within the shade range.
I have tried many liquid lipsticks from the likes of the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks to the Nyx Lip Creams and loved them but the Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick formula is unlike anything I've tried before, but that is a good thing. Many liquid lipsticks can appear quite dry on the lips and crack overtime but that's not the case with these.
They have a semi-matte, almost satin finish which don't feel dry in the slightest. If anything they are smooth to apply and feel ever so creamy on the lips leaving no uncomfortable feeling like a matte liquid lipstick would do. The pigmentation is insane too with every single shade appearing opaque on the lips with just one swipe. No sticky residue or film to be detected at all.
The slanted tip applicator makes application so easy too and lines the lips perfectly without making a mess. As for the lasting power, it lasts just over 6 hours but that's without eating. When eating it does tend to slide off but it leaves a slight stain behind on the lips.
the shades are beautiful but there are three in particular that has managed to sneak their way into my handbag. It might not be
a shock to you that the two nude shades within the range, Nude Thrill
and Nude Flush are firm favourites. Also, I am loving Rebel Red too, it's the perfect bold statement red shade.
They are ever so dreamy, I can only imagine that anybody with dry lips will love them too, especially as they are more comfortable on the lips. I have been using different shades from the range alternatively ever since I got them, I can't get enough. I can only hope in time that they will add more shades to the range, maybe some more nudes and vampy shades for autumn.
The *Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks retail at £6.99 here but Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer in which can save you a few pennies.
