Review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks

I was lucky enough to receive the brand spanking new Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks at a recent launch event I attended. I have been eagerly awaiting for these for ages since I spotted some pics awhile back so these were definitely the highlight of my goodie bag and I couldn't wait to test them out and review them for you all.

If you want to read what I have to say about these new liquid lipsticks, them keep reading!

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Nude Thrill
A lovely brown nude, I find this colour similar to MAC's Velvet Teddy however slightly lighter making it more wearable for me. This has a slight peach hue to it.

Nude Flush
My favourite of the collection, this is a lovely pink nude shade. This is super easy to wear everyday

Electric Pink
This is an intense hot pink. Quite bright in tone, this is a great choice for summer and spring.

Orange Shot
In the tube it looks like a red orange, however when swatched it seems to look way more orange. 

Fuchsia Ecstasy
A gorgeous, blue toned fuchsia colour. This isn't as deep as it looks in the tube.

Rebel Red
A true red, this is a stunning red shade that would look incredible on pale skin.

Berry Boost
A rich berry shade, this is definitely perfect for Winter months for that "bitten" colour.

Possessed Plum
Another of my favourites, this is a beautiful plum, maroon colour. This isn't extremely dark to where it looks like a vampire.

The formula of these liquid lipsticks isn't what I was expecting. They are more of a moussey formula rather than watery. I have found they don't actually dry matte. They dry to a cream finish, very similiar to the Creamy Matte Liquid Lipsticks by Chi Chi Cosmetics and the Soft Matte Lip Creams by NYX. As a result, they are not transfer resistant and they will slip and slide around on your lips. 

They apply beautifully smooth and are beautiful for everyday use. I do find the more slippery, non-matte formula a little frustrating for the really pigmented colours especially trying to get a crisp line and no smudging. I like the shape of the doe foot applicator, it is larger than most liquid lipsticks I've tried so it does take a little bit of getting used to.

Overall, I think these brand new drugstore liquid lipsticks are a good choice for anyone wanting a creamy pigmented mouse lipstick. I've been getting a lot of use out of Nude Flush and think it is an absolutely perfect colour for everyday!

Have you tried these out yet? What are your thoughts?

  1. I was initially disappointed with the formula cause I was expecting it to be long-lasting, but i have to admit, it has grown on me and its quite comfortable!

    1. Definitely agree! I was expecting like... proper matte liquid lipstick. But I feel like these are more like a cream matte finish. In saying that, I love the way they feel on my lips and the way they don't accentuate any dry patches on my lips!

  2. These look so nice! Nude thrill is calling my name!
