Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Lust for Blush Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. There is a fine gold micro-shimmer in it, but it’s hard to see. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly. It wore well for four and a half hours but could have faded away a little more evenly. It was neither drying nor hydrating when I tried it. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is lighter. MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $16.00) is warmer. Le Metier de Beaute Fiji (P, $32.00) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever #12 (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker.

Maybelline Ravishing Rose Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered fairly evenly. The color lasted for four and a half hours, and there was some minor settling into lip lines after three hours of wear. I didn’t find it hydrating, but it also wasn’t drying. Maybelline Lust for Blush (P, $7.99) is lighter. NARS Claudia (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Steady Going (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Bite Beauty Kumquat (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Silly (LE, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Faint for Fuchsia Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia pink with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly full color coverage that covered evenly and smoothly. The texture was a little more emollient than the other shades in the line, but it sat better on the lips as a result. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours and left a slight stain behind, and it was drying. Ardency Inn Twist (P, $25.00) is darker. NARS Yu (P, $25.00) is darker. MAC Pink Pigeon (P, $16.00) is more muted. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is cooler. Kat Von D Backstage Bambi (P, $19.00) is brighter, cooler, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Electric Pink (15) (P, $50.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Michiyo (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Kelly Yum-Yum (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Melt Cosmetics Shady Lady (P, $19.00) is darker. Too Faced Melted Fuchsia (P, $21.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Moscato (P, $28.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Mesmerizing Magenta Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightend, fuchsia-red with subtle, cool undertones and a violet pearl. It was almost a “warm” fuchsia, but it’s still leaning cooler to me. The texture was lightly creamy, so it applied well, and it looked smooth on the lips with mostly opaque coverage. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and wasn’t drying. MAC Moxie (LE, $16.00) is cooler, less glossy. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer. MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler. MAC Good Kisser (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is warmer, less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Pure Pink (P, $50.00) is darker. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is cooler. Chanel La Romanesque (50) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Bite Beauty Framboise (P, $24.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Cougar (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker. MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $16.00) is lighter, glossier.

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.

I’m so happy you are reviewing these. They are such a great formula at an amazing price ( target sells them for 5.49). All the colors you have reviewed so far I have but now I get to see the dups and it feels great cause many highend lipsticks in my wish list are dupes so I don’t need them.

I really like Maybelline’s matte formula. It’s very creamy and easy on the lips. But after last year’s release, I know to stick with the darker shades. Faint for Fuchsia and Ravishing Rose highlighted every imperfection and settled into my lip lines. I just: couldn’t pull them off. They actually look pretty good on you though

I’m glad I’m not the only one who found that some shades in the formula settled into lip lines! I had heard ONLY raves and was like, “Hmm, some of them are really good, but some of them don’t wear so great…”

I got Lust for Blush and Ravishing Rose because I was craving some mauve shades. Both shades look so much darker one me and my fair skin. lol I want to see more as I was only interested in the 4 shade out of 9 I’ve seen up here in Canada.

Also forgot to ask this, but did anyone else have batch mixing issue. The shade and formula is fine, but my two shades has got tiny chunks of pigment throughout the bullet. It’s not the first time I’ve seen this happen with a match lipstick but it’s so consistent between the two it just might be a repeating issue with others.

Yup, the same thing happened to me with Touch of Spice. The lipstick applies fine but I can see chunky balls of pigment itself in the tube. It smoothes out fine on the lips but looks in the bullet.

Very nice job, Maybelline! The more they make, the more I find dupes for many HE Favorites. I’m also happy to read so many are enjoying the formula and love it! It’s nice these are more accessible. Options are great! 🙂

All of these look exceptionally good on you. I know you often say those light milky pinks don’t look good on you but Ravishing Rose is perfect for ya 😉 . I’m kind of glad Lust for Blush didn’t get an A because now I’m not dying to have it. I’ll get Nars Anna and if that’s too dull on me I’ll come back for this one. It is somewhat of a unique color as your short dupe list shows.

Mesmerizing Magenta is so beautiful and bright! But not neon bright though, and I really like the micro-shimmer because it gives it dimension and a soft glow.
