Maybelline Hot Lava Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is vibrant, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and fine red pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied decently, but it could have distributed color more evenly. The lipstick felt smooth, lightweight, and had a more waxy consistency that was really comfortable to apply but made it harder to build up coverage. The color wore well for five hours on me and was non-drying.

The Matte Metallics 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.

Maybelline Royal Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss ($7.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable but not practical–it felt overwhelming with more than one layer, as the gloss itself was thicker and heavier. One layer was comfortable, as it developed into a more gel-like feel that did not slide around, but two layers made it seem more slippery to me. The gloss pulled into my lip lines and applied unevenly overall. It did wear awhile at six hours, was lightly hydrating, and left a fuchsia stain behind.

The formula is supposed to have “full coverage” that won’t “feather or migrate” paired with a “high-impact glossy finish.” The formula is light-medium in thickness–by no means a thin, featherweight gloss but not shy of being totally goopy or heavy-feeling–with moderate tackiness. I find that it initially went on feeling like a thicker, creamy gloss with a lot of slip, but it developed into more of a gel-like consistency that adhered better and did not slide around after 20 to 30 seconds. I did not experience feathering or migration with any shades tested so far (and I went for the deeper shades first!). The wear has ranged from four to six hours with a non-drying to lightly hydrating effect. The formula had a subtle, sweet scent but did not taste soapy or linger as long as I have experienced with Maybelline lip products in the past.

Maybelline White Gold Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, golden beige with warm, peachy undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which had even coverage on the lips but uneven texture–it seemed to bunch up i n places and appear almost crumbly at times. The texture was smooth, waxy, and it felt a lot more comfortable than it looked. This shade lasted for three hours on me with some color settling into lip lines over time, while the formula seemed to be neither drying nor hydrating.

Here’s a recap of how well (or poorly!) the ten new shades of Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Lipsticks ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) that launched this spring. I’m usually excited for new Maybelline lipsticks, as they are often quite pigmented and comfortable to wear, but a lot of these had a stronger white base and a more chalk-like appearance on (though many felt just fine going on!). The darker shades were definitely the better ones in the launch. Did you pick up any shades from this set?
