Packaging is similar to Colorsensational Lipsticks, just the cap has frost finish and is matched with the shade of the lipstick inside.

Shades – MAT 4 is an red base orange and MAT 5 is a red based pink. Both the shades are really beautiful, vivid and would suit majority of Indian complexions. Colors are rich and this is what I love about Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick. These lipsticks come in 5 bold shades.Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick (3)Texture & Pigmentation – Maybelline has called them Matte formulas though texture of these lipsticks is more velvety or silky than Matte. Formula is quite smooth and glides on the lips easily without tugging or pulling. It isn’t moisturizing but not drying either, however it tends to settle in fine lines and clings on to dry patches after 1-3 hours. My lips have numerous fine lines and after 2 hours lipstick turns slightly flaky and looks unpleasant.

Pigmentation – Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipsticks provides medium to full opacity. Formula is packed with pigments so you can build desired coverage by layering. Both the shades cover my lips fully in 2 swipes.Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick (7)Staying Power- Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick stays on for good 3-4 hours and stains lips a bit. I prefer to reapply them after 3 hours since the formula turns patchy after some time.

Negative Points –

  • Formula tends to flake and settle in fine lines after 2-3 hours.
  • Not matte.

Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick (8)Overall Thoughts

I liked the boldness of shades and they infact are pretty wearable. Formula glides on smoothly and feels comfortable on lips. Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick gives velvety/ satiny finish which isn’t matte at all. It tends to flake and settle in fine lines after sometime. So if you struggle with dry lips and looking for a matte lipstick these aren’t for you.
