I've seen the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick all over the web but somehow never seemed to find it in stores, until recently. I went over to the shopping mall with a friend to get her some new makeup and saw the Vivid Matte range, and obviously I had to get at least one. I picked up the shade Fuchsia Ecstasy which is a gorgeous pink that looks amazing on tanned skintones.
The Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick comes in a tube just like lipgloss. The lipstick is nicely pigmented which allows you to achieve a gorgeous lip colour in just one layer. The first thing I noticed and was really happy about was that it isn't sticky like regular lipglosses. It is moisturizing, easy to apply, glides on smoothly and doesn't clump if you add more layers. The fact that the finish is matte is something I was really excited about with this lipstick, and I wasn't disappointed. The lipstick is so matte that it was actually even a bit drying when applied directly to the lips without priming. Since I quite often use a lipbalm before applying lipsticks, I tried that and liked the results a lot better.
I've worn this lipstick to work and on a night out, and the stay is really good for a drugstore product but still isn't as long as I'd like. Depending on what and how much you eat and drink, you might have to reapply around 3-5 times. Either way, I still love this lipstick and I'm looking forward to getting additional colours. If you're looking for a new lip product to try, I would definitely recommend this because all my friends who have tried it, love it.
Price - approx. €9.
