SWATCHED AND REVIEWED: NEW MAYBELLINE VIVID MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS*


 These freshly launched liquid matte lipsticks should be making their way in to your local Maybelline stockist as we speak (if they aren't there already).



The newest and one of the most talked about lipstick releases of the year and I can see why! So much pigment and a formula like no other.

Now I have read a few reviews complaining about the lack of "matte" and I tend to agree but it's not necessary a negative thing. They're matte with a hint of moisture which is perfect in my opinion as most other liquid lipsticks are so drying and they crack, leaving the lipstick looking uneven and lacking. If you're more in to the matte look however, just apply a super thin layer!

I personally LOVE the formula and the staying power, whilst not the absolute best I've tried, is pretty damn good - a solid 2 hours (however, if you're eating or drinking - re-application is needed although the darker colours do leave a stain on the lips!). Even trying to get these swatches off with my trusty Bioderma Micellar Water proved difficult - that's how strong the staying power is! I do however, find the darkest purple colour, Posessed Plum, to be a bit patchy and no matter how much I applied, I couldn't get an opaque even layer of lipstick. This one also wasn't matte at all on the lips.



Maybelline have managed to make the perfect colour selection for this range. Nudes, pinks, orange, reds and even a purple! Of course my favourite is Nude Flush and I also LOVE Nude Thrill but surprisingly I am also obsessed with Orange Shot!

50 NUDE THRILL
05 NUDE FLUSH
15 ELECTRIC PINK
30 FUCHSIA ECSTASY
25 ORANGE SHOT
35 REBEL RED
40 BERRY BOOST
45 POSSESSED PLUM


Which one is your fave?
Which one do you think looks best on me?

  4. I love those nude shades, they are gorgeous, but I am a little upset that these lipsticks aren't actually matte, I was really excited for another good liquid matte lipstick to come out!

  6. Nude thrill and orange shot both look amazing on you!!! These sound great. I can't wait to try them myself. I don't actually mind lipsticks with less staying power as long as they are pigmented and hydrating. Well done for swatching all of these! Your lips must have been tired at the end of this!

    1. My lips were a little sore but I used baby wipes to remove the lipstick after each swatch so they weren't too rough on the skin! Thank you <3

  8. I have nude flush and I love it! It is really beautiful and I, like you, love the fact that these are a moisturizing matte formula - even if they don't look as matte as a drying one would be. Thanks for the reviews and swatches, I really like berry boost! Oooops, looks like I'll have to buy that now! haha xx

  10. I honestly think you can pull off every single shade, gorgeous woman!!! I've not yet swatched these but they look great, I'm not a fan of super matte liquid lipsticks so this sounds like a happy medium :)

  11. Really interesting seeing your thoughts on these as I wasn't the hugest fan. I think you need to take everything that you think you know about matte liquid lipsticks out of your head before trying these! I like my darker shades to be budgeproof as I find they can be a bit messy, but I love wearing Nude Flush & Nude Thrill. My main bugbear is the taste though, I find it really overpowering!
