Hello Pretty Ladies,
How you all been? August is here. It is my favorite month of the year. I just feel very happy from inside. My birthday falls in this month. It means I can buy stuff in the name of “Birthday Haul” without feeling guilty. :)
Alright let’s move to today’s review now. Today I will be reviewing one of the bold matte lipsticks from Maybelline. This, as the name suggests, is a beautiful shade of red. Red lips are classy and never go out of fashion. You can skip all the makeup but stick to red lips and you will have all the attention even at a crowded place. I bet we all have experienced this. I usually like bright reds. This shade is little bit muted red but I still liked it. Let’s get to know more about this lipstick.
Price: Rs. 375 for 3.9 gm
The lipstick comes in a very attractive red packaging. The packaging is also matte to comply with the nature of the lipstick. The packaging is quite sturdy as I happen to drop the lipstick many times but there are no cracks seen in the bullet yet.
Texture of this lipstick is pretty creamy. It feels very moisturizing. It goes very smoothly on lips. The finishing is matte. The lipstick is creamy but it does not melt even during summertime.
My sister recently got married and I found this lipstick in her kitty. I know I shouldn’t raid into a newly married girl’s vanity, but, it’s way out of my control seeing so much new makeup at once. So apparently I learned she accidentally got the same shade (Mat 5) twice and hence I could use the spare one. I gladly accepted.
This is a beautiful red matte lipstick. It is matte but it is very moisturizing. You don’t need any lip balm underneath this lipstick. I love matte lipsticks. Glossy ones don’t agree with my oily skin. The pigmentation of this lipstick is very good. But you can use two or more swipes to get a very intense color. I have worn this lipstick for 4-5 hours and it leaves a tint afterword. Some girls don’t like staining lipsticks but I actually consider it a plus since my lips are little pigmented.
Regarding the price, I have compared the lipstick’s texture with Lakme Absolute lipstick’s texture and I find Maybelline has priced this range very decently while the moisturizing effect and staying power from both the ranges are almost the same.
- Very creamy & moisturizing
- Applies smoothly
- Highly pigmented hence great color pay off
- Neither bleeds nor settle into fine lines
- Stays put for 4-5 hours
- Decently priced
- I didn’t find any hard core negatives in this lipstick. It has everything I want in a lipstick.
- Some girls may not like the matte finishing but its manageable by applying a clear gloss or lip balm over the lipstick.
- It leaves a tint which may be a negative point for some girls.
I am planning to pick more shades from this bold matte range as the lipsticks from this range are having really nice shades, pigmentation and matte finish.
