Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids / review & swatches

Happy Wednesday loves!

I’m really exited to share today’s post, I think it’s safe to say that I’m absolutely obsessed with the new Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids* so keep reading to find out why!

The matte lip trend is still going strong and I’m loving the fact that so many drugstore brands have decided to come out with their own version of matte lippies and these ones from Maybelline are just lovely. There are 8 shades available in the collection, all beautifully pigmented and bold.


These lippies would give your lips a big pop of colour, they are very pigmented, they even leave a bit of a stain behind, so when the lipstick fades away a hint of colour remains, which I love about them. I like the packaging, it’s simple but chic, it comes with a long, thin doe-foot applicator with a flat edge that is pretty good/precise at applying the product. I really like the formula of these lipsticks – rich and creamy, with a soft velvety finish. I’m not normally a fan of really matte lip products as they tend to dry out my lips but these ones don’t do that. They are quite hydrating and give more of a semi-matte finish in my opinion, which looks and feels so comfortable on. To help achieve more of a matte look, I’ve found that it’s best to apply a smaller amount of product (if you put too much on, you’re not going to get the same effect) and to give your lips a quick blot after application so the colour dries better.

I’m really liking the reinvention of matte liquid lipsticks I’m seeing at the drugstores lately. They make mattes much more wearable and better for those of us with drier lips. Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids give a beautiful intense color with a velvet matte finish, they are easier to apply, easier to wear, and look incredible without ever feeling heavy or dry in comparison to the traditional matte lipsticks on the market, so they get thumbs up from me! They retail for £6.99 and you can get them at Boots and Superdrug.
