Liquid lipsticks, Yes Please. Matte? Lets buy it now. Lip Gloss? Uunn hun. That’s my opinion for lip glosses. I am true blue matte lipstick lover. But off late I have begun to experiment. Trying out new makeup and making them work for you is exciting for a makeup lover. I had recently tried the L’Oreal Sexy Balms too, you can check the review HERE. Maybelline had launched these velvet mattes in liquid and I wanted to try for the juicy colors the range offered. I have got four shades to show you.

My Opinion on Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte

The range was first launched as a gloss called the Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish which was out and out glossy and didn’t claim to be matte. After some time they launched a matte formula of the liquid lipsticks. Now I was interested.

Packaging

These lippers are packed in rectangular transparent plastic tubes. The cap is screw closure matte black to differentiate with the metallic silver cap of the prequel. The packaging is an illusion of a lipstick bullet but its a double glass layering which gives it an illusion. This range doesn’t have shade names but numbers as in matte 1, matte 2 and so on. The he applicator is perfectly shaped to hug the lips while application for that perfect application. The tip of the sponge applicator is pointed to even line the lips with it.

Texture

It is a creamy liquid finish and as per name, a velvet matte finish. The claim is not 100% true as they are creamy moist matte and not velvet matte. These apply smoothly on the lips, better than butter would. It takes time to dry up to matte finish. The lips don’t need any extra lip balm and stay hydrated for the creaminess it offers. It never feels dry like other liquid lipsticks, but it transfers. It doesn’t fade off from the center, but fades out evenly leaving behind a tint. Lips look healthy and moist. Read theReview of Rimmel Apocalips  to understand better.

Shades

I have got four shades to discuss about. Matte1, 8, 10 and 11.
Matte 1 – looks very pigmented and vibrant in the tube and appears coral. On my lips it comes out as a barbie pink. The pigmentation is sheer, when compared to other shades. This can be a good daily wear option for beginners.
Matte 8- is a beautiful mix of coral and red. A red which is not to stark, perfect for the ones unsure of red.
Matte 10- its a violet toned pink which is rare and suits most Indian skin tones.
Matte 11- now this one is my fave. The color is rich red and looks stunning. I couldn’t get enough of it.

Pigmentation & Staying Power

I didn’t expect these to be too pigmented. But to my surprise they are pigmented. Two swipes offer true color. All four shades are pigmented, the least color pay off is shade 1 on me.
Since it is semi matte, it is not suppose to stay for long. It does transfer as its expected to. The color fades evenly on eating and drinking and when in contact of a surface ( a glass/cup). The color doesn’t leave cracks but an even tint behind. There is no stain left behind after removing with makeup remover/oil. It stays for 4-5 hours on me.

 

Why should you buy Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte

 

  • Good packaging with a thoughtful applicator
  • Available in variety of shades
  • Impressive pigmentation
  • Applies smooth and soft on the lips
  • Keeps lips moisturised
  • Doesn’t settle into fine lines
  • For a lip gloss stays long as 5 hours

 

Why you should not buy Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte

 

  • Transfers everywhere
  • Takes time to settle to matte finish

 

Recommendation: Yes
NoM Report Card : 3.5/5

 

Final Verdict

These are moist semi matte and doesn’t dry out lips. Lips look healthy and moist. Pigmentation is impressive and stays upto 5 hours. The fading is even and leaves a subtle tint behind. If yoy are alright with transfer, these wont disappoint.
