Maybelline Matte Metallic Lipsticks
Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallic Lipsticks ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is the newest finish in the Color Sensational range, and it’s supposed to pigmented, metallic, matte, and have a “comfortable creamy” feel.
The formula had a smooth, waxy feel to me–it glided across the lips with ease but was thinner and did not lay down as much color in a single layer. Most of the shades were semi-opaque with some being slightly sheerer or more pigmented, but they were typically buildable. The lipstick was comfortable to wear and lasted between three and five hours on me with some shades being lightly hydrating and others were non-drying. There was a subtle, sweet scent but was significantly subdued compared to other Maybelline lip products.
Though it was not perfect, one of my favorites was Copper Rose for the finish and color–I would pair it with a similar-colored lip liner to help even it out. Are you convinced to try these? Skip them? Have you tried any?
