Maybelline Burgundy Blush ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color
Maybelline Burgundy Blush ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Burgundy Blush ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish burgundy with warm, brown undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on evenly but had a slightly drier consistency compared to most of the range. The texture was lightweight and slightly drying over time, but I only felt the drying quality kick in after four hours of wear, while the color lasted for closer to six in all. MAC Extended Play (DC, $18.00) is warmer. NARS Amsterdam (P, $26.00) is more muted. MAC Diva (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Deeply Adored (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Runner (LE, $16.00) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Cherry (08) (P, $50.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Hearts Aflame (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Studded Kiss (P, $16.00) is lighter. NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Fixed on Drama (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Maybelline Divine Wine (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer. Colour Pop Avenue (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy. Colour Pop Tulle (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter, warmer, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Nude Nuance ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with hints of warm orange and a semi-matte finish. It had fairly good coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. This shade had one of the more matte finishes within the recent additions, and the color wore for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Clay Crush (P, $7.99) is lighter. Colour Pop Parker (LE, $5.00) is lighter. Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler. MAC Mocha (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Clay Crush ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-brown with a semi-matte finish. It had subtler, warmer undertones but it lacks brightness so it ends up appearing less orange-based. The texture was velvety and applied evenly with smooth, mostly opaque color payoff. I had some issues with the color pulling into lip lines after three hours, though it wore for five hours overall. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is darker. MAC Oxblood (LE, $16.00) is lighter. NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is lighter. Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is darker. MAC Persistence (P, $16.00) is darker. Colour Pop Parker (LE, $5.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to “deliver a burst of bold lip color” with a “creamy texture” and a matte finish. In general, the formula has good color payoff with a velvety, creamy consistency that covers evenly and most shades seem to make lips appear smoother but some shades were prone to pulling into lip lines as the color wore away. The big thing about these is that they have a mostly matte finish and are more comfortable to wear than many matte formulas due to the velvety feel (almost like a silicone primer, but not quite as heavy and not clingy). The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had a sweet, plastic-like scent but no taste.

Burgundy Blush is definitely my kind of color! I already have the dupes NARS Amsterdam and MAC Hearts Aflame but will grab it anyway, always nice to have a matte version that lasts longer. I’m ok if it’s a little drier (actually prefer it) because I always put SPF 15 lip balm on top of lipstick, and if the lippie is too creamy, it can slide off.

What pretty colors, especially for fall! Nude Nuance and Clay Crush look like great everyday shades for autumn. Mattes are hard to nail, esp. for budget brands, so I’m continually impressed with how unique and comfortable this formula is.

Christine, you have Maybelline Nude Nuance is listed twice as a dupe for Clay Crush and it describe it as both lighter and darker? Was this a mistake?

Wow, Burgundy Blush applies so evenly for such a deep color! Such a lovely rich shade. Maybelline has truly done a wonderful job with their matte line!

I love all of these! I tried on Nude Nuance and it’s just so perfect. Maybelline did a great job with the shade selection!

If these were super hydrating and balm like, Burgendy Blush would be killer. But they are lipsticks. Killer balm.. They should do that, make a hydrating balm with intense color like that.

I just love Burgundy Blush – such a gorgeous colour. Why would you pay $50 for a Tom Ford one when you can get this for $8? It is the same colour. It looks lovely on you Christine. I really want this one!

this creamy matte formula is one of my all-time faves from the drugstore .

maybelline really did a great job with these . i hope they continue to expand the line .

nude nuance is my fave of this bunch . it’s the perfect nude for me .

i don’t really like clay crush on me by itself , so i definitely have to either pair it with a liner or a gloss . i love pairing it with nyx’s tres leches iblg .

Burgundy Blush reminds me of MAC’s Viva III, judging from the swatch. Diva on me looks a lot more red and less brown, but Viva III looks really similar.

Picked up Clay Crush at Walmart on Tuesday evening and I’m very surprised by how good it looks on me. All the other colors were gone at my local store but I’m on the hunt for Nude Nuance and Burgundy Blush (will be awesome for fall!) This is my perfect nude that’s actually nude…my perfect & favorite dark nude is still MAC Taupe.
