Hello my lovelies! I am finally back after a bit of a break due to some technical issues, but there is nothing to worry about because you are now gonna get your daily dose of beauty! Today I have for you a product review, which is a liquid lipstick and that too A DRUGSTORE one! So lets dive in the review and get started!
What is Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid ?
This is what Maybelline has to say about it:
“Live loud, live bold, live more vividly. Play up that pout with 10 shades to pick from. Choose a lip color, flaunt, and go! Color Sensational® Vivid Matte Liquid™. Rich, intense lip color that glides on smooth to a matte finish.”
Maybelline’s spring collection 2016 had these beautiful bunch of liquid lipsticks and I skipped them completely, only recently during my trip to the drugstore, I got a chance to test them and girls… they are STUNNING!
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Shades
Here are the colours that you could pick from. This involves two nude shades, some bright pinks and some red shades. Overall this is a good range to choose from in my humble opinion.
- 35 Rebel red
- 40 Berry Boost
- 20 Electric Pink
- 25 Fuchsia Ecstasy
- 10 Nude Flush
- 5 Nude Thrill
- 30 Orange Shot
- 15 Pink Charge
- 50 Possessed Plum
- 45 Vivid Violet
PACKAGING AND HOW MUCH PRODUCT DO YOU GET?
Maybelline Vivid Matte comes in a glass tube through which you can easily see your liquid lipstick. This has a black cap on one side, which once opened has the applicator inside. You are getting 0.26oz of product here which I think is fair for the price of $7.99.
Once you stop admiring the packaging (like me) and decide to take the seal off, you’ll notice that the flat applicator takes out a fair amount of product on it. The texture is very smooth and silky and you’ll get plenty of time to distribute this evenly on your lips before you feel like its starting to dry up.
If you are expecting this to “dry” into a matte lipstick then this is not the case. The texture would always remain creamy and fresh here.
One thing that worried me a bit was that it says that it’s a “matte” lipstick but it does have some sheen to it. Overall, I never found it 100% Matte on my lips! This IS good news for people like me who already have super-chapped lips! I never felt like the texture ended up cracking my lips so this gives it a thumbs up from my side!
PIGMENTATION AND LONGEVITY
A single swipe ends up giving you BALM pigmentation. I never have to reapply because of not getting opaque coverage in the first attempt!
Maybelline Vivid Matte has around 4-5 hours of stay on my lips, typically when I don’t eat or drink much! This might vary for some of you out there!
For $7.99 I think it’s a good choice for those of you who want to try Liquid lipsticks! This was my quick review on Maybelline Vivid Matte! Let me know if you want any other reviews of your favorite products from my side! Until next time 🙂
