Hi everyone! Recently Maybelline came out with the new Vivid Matte Liquids, which, I think, is their version of a liquid lipstick. Maybelline describes the Vivid Matte Liquid as a ‘Rich, intense lip color that glides on smooth to a matte finish’. I got four shades of them, I tried them out, and I will share my thoughts on them with you guys!
I think Maybelline did a great job on the packaging. It’s very simple, but it doesn’t look ‘cheap’ at all. It just looks very clean and sleek to me. I also like the fact that you can see the actual colour of the product because of the clear material.
Shades from top to bottom: Rebel Red – Fuchsia Ecstasy – Nude Flush – Nude Thrill
The pigmentation is great, as you can see above. The only thing I don’t really like is that they don’t dry completely matte. I expected a formula similar to liquid lipsticks, but that’s not quit what this is. I also wouldn’t say it looks like a lipgloss or something, because it really doesn’t. It has more of a satin finish, that’s the best way I can describe it.
HOW IT FEELS
This is one of the most comfortable matte lip products that I have in my makeup collection. It really feels very smooth and soft on the lips, which is not very typical for matte lip products. However, the lasting power is not very long. You definitely will have to reapply this lipstick a few times throughout the day.
I would definitely recommend the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids if you’re looking for an affordable lipstick with good pigmentation. Do keep in mind that these are not super matte, because I did have that in mind and it was a bit disappointing to see that they’re not completely matte. My favorite color out of the four shades I picked, is definitely Nude Thrill. This is such a beautiful browny nude color, which I’m loving at the moment!
