*I received this product complimentary for an honest review
Matte liquid lipsticks are some of my favorites to rock actually, I have quite the collection by various brands. I think liquid lipsticks are beautifully pigmented and the color range is gorgeous. When I was given the opportunity to review the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks I was very excited to add some new colors to my arsenal especially at a drugstore price.
What is different about this product vs another matte liquid lipsticks is the application process. It is recommended that you:
Apply 1 thin layer of the liquid lipstick, blot your lips with a tissue and then allow it to dry. For creamier look apply two layers.
As a matte liquid lipstick wearer, I’m used to quickly applying the color and it drying to a matte finish in seconds.
My experience with the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks is that they never seemed to dry matte. The lipsticks were more on the creamier side. The color was pigmented and wore nicely but I never had a matte experience even when using the desired method of application.
Besides not being matte the colors were pigmented and creamy. The longevity of wear was about average in comparison to a standard lipstick. I had to reapply multiple times throughout the day to maintain the opacity of the color.
The two shades that I wore were 10 Nude Flush and 35 Rebel Red. Check out the pictures to see the wear of these colors below.
Nude Flush #10 Rebel Red #35
Maybelline offers the Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks in 10 shades ranging from nude to plum. If I was buying these on the basis of them being matte I would be disappointed but if i was buying them on the basis of pigmentation of color I would be satisfied.
