Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatch and Review
I have been obsessed with these since they landed on my doorstep! Particularly the shade Nude Flush and Nude Thrill, they really have lived in my hand bag!
These lipsticks have a really rich formula, for being a matte based lipstick they’re not drying at all. In saying that, I wouldn’t say these are really matte, matte lipsticks. They are more matte than your every day lippy, and do have a matte finish. But because they’re nice and creamy they are not that 100% dry matte look.
If you’re wanting to venture into matte lipsticks these would be the perfect stepping stone.
Nude Flush 05
Nude Flush is such a gorgeous everyday lip colour! I have lived in this at work! <3
These lippies do have quite a strong scent to them. I know some people haven’t liked it, but I honestly don’t mind it. It is definitely not a scent that would put me off buying or recommending them.
Electric Pink 15
Electric Pink is right on the money for spring! I am a sucker for bright lipsticks in spring and this is right up there!
The brush applicator on these makes them super easy to apply and touch up.
Orange Shot 25
Can we just appreciate this shade for a minute!? This is another shade that is bright and PERFECT for spring! The pigmentation of these are also really good, I generally do two thin layers to get the coverage I like!
TIP: Apply one coat, blot, then apply the other. – It is not necessary but really helps to build up the coverage without having a heap of product on your lips! <3
Fuchsia Ecstasy 30
Fuchsia Ecstasy really lives up to the vivid expectation! This shade is so freaking bold and delicious! and again so pigmented!
As the formula is cream it does wear off when you eat and drink. It lasts like a regular lipstick does on your lips, but also leaves a light ‘stain’ that makes touch ups a breeze.
Rebel Red 35
Rebel Red is another FAVE of mine!! This shade reminds me of the red that T Swift wears!
I can see this with her signature winged eyeliner look!!
Berry Boost 40
Berry Boost, another gorgeous bold shade!
The packaging of the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks are plain but cute. With a matte black lid and Maybellines staple squared tubes. It is easy to see the shades through the clear plastic base.
Possessed Plum 45
Possessed Plum is my least favourite out of the collection. I wanted so badly to like it, it looks so gorgeous in the tube. But the pigmentation lets it down. It took many layers to get this shot!
Nude Thrill 50
As I said, this is also a fave! I really think this photo does not give this shade justice! It is the perfect every day work nude!!
You can pick these up for about $21.99 each from Farmers and Pharmacies.
Over all I love the creamy formula of these, it is something so different for matte lipsticks. I will be thrashing these this spring! <3
