Well, it sure has been a while since I’ve sat down to do a beauty post!
I am pretty excited to bring you today’s post, featuring 6 shades from Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colours! I believe there are 8 shades in total, I’m just short Orange Shot & Nude Flush. But we’ve got the rest of the gang here!
You might’ve seen these lippies making their way around Instagram and the beauty world earlier this year. I was so kindly sent a few of them to try and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to introduce a bit of beauty back into Sunday Chapter.
Claims from the Maybelline website:
“Drench your lips in double the pigments for the ultimate colour payoff with a comfortable, matte finish. Bolder and fiercer than ever before, New Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color has a luxurious matte finish that’s never dry or flat.”
These lip colours act true to their name – they are incredibly vivid. Some are even a little too daring for my liking, but I can appreciate how intensely pigmented they are. The applicator wand makes them super easy to apply without lip liner and a little goes a very long way. When applied, they initially give a slight tingling to the lips but it should be noted that these do not dry to a completely matte finish as you can probably tell through my photos. They do dry up a little, but have a glossy liquid lipstick finish if anything. I was slightly disappointed about this as matte finishes are my favourite. The only time they start to go fully “matte” is when they wear off your lips and leave quite a strong stain.
What I do love about these lip colours is the pigmentation and lasting power. Like I said, even after the gloss goes it turns into a nice stain which lasts almost all day (particularly the darker shades). And for you fellow dry lip girls, I’m pleased to say they wont be drying out your lips.
If you’re after a super bold liquid lipstick, then these might just be for you!
And there you have it! 6 lip colours from Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid Lip colours! Have you tried any of these? Are these something you’d wear or are they a little too “out there”? I’d love to know your favourite?!
