Maybelline is one of the most trusted brands in india specially when it comes to affordable makeup. The brand makes sure to be on the top of the game and launches new products every other month. Few of my instagram followers informed me about the new launch – Maybelline Powder Matte Lipsticks. This is one of the most awaited launch after Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks. I did some googling and picked 4 shades that I thought would compliment my complexion.
Packaging is typical colorsensational lipstick one, except for one shade “Touch Of Nude” that has same blush toned cap (similar to creamy mattes). Shade name and number is written on the bottom of the case.
Shades – It was quite a challenge to pick shades that aren’t already there with me since there are reds, neutral, plum & pinks in this range. However after checking couple of swatches online I ended up picking –
Get-Red-Dy – A warm toned beautiful red
Plum Perfection – Beautiful Plum
Cherry Chic – Deep Cherry Red
Touch Of Nude – A peachy Pink (bit light for me)
Texture & formula – True to the name Maybelline Powder Matte Lipsticks are matte in texture. The formula isn’t very drying and I love wearing these all the time. The color swipes on without much tugging , just make sure to moisturise lips before hand.
The finish is velvet matte which is my favourite. Lips look smooth & matte. Since the shades are matte the lips will feel dry after a while. Also make sure they are well exfoliated or else the formula will cling on to the dry patches.
Pigmentation – I would call these medium-opaque coverage lipsticks. You would need layering to cover darkness or pigmentation. Colours layer well and none of them get patchy or crumbly whatsoever.
Staying Power – The formula of these lipsticks isn’t entirely transferproof, however the don’t move around and stay put for a long time. On me the staying power is good 4-6 hours.
