I have been loving these liquid lipsticks that almost all brands have come out with. This year is all about liquid matte lipsticks. They are in a gloss like packaging, but they settle mat on your lips. I love when a lipstick is long lasting, because who wants to reapply their lipsticks every few hours. I must admit, I have started using liquid lipsticks more than the normal lipsticks now adays. So when Maybelline came out with these velvet matte lipsticks, I had to try them.
The Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks are available in 8 shades ranging from pinks, oranges to deep reds. I have Mat 6 and Mat 11. Mat 6 is very pretty berryish plumish shade, and my favourite. Mat 11 is a deep red with blue undertones. I feel they have very limited shades in this range. All shades are very dark. There as no light, nude colors in the range.
In the tube, both Mat 6 and Mat 11 look very similar.
These liquid lipsticks are quite creamy and moisturizing on the lips. They are extremely pigmented. They do not leave my lips feel drying. In my opinion they aren’t completely matte. When you apply it, it looks slightly glossy. You need to wait for a long time for it to settle matte. It is not transfer proof. But once it has settles, it does stay on for a decent amount of time.
For the price tag, they are a good buy.
Do let me know if you want me to do a comparison of liquid lipsticks from different brands. I have reviewed the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks (read review here).
