The Maybelline matte lipsticks are finally available in my country. Sadly we got only four shades - 2 reds, a bright magenta colour (I liked this one the most, but I have a lot of similar shades) and a light pink colour (the one I bought). These lipsticks are supposed to be the best matte lipsticks in the drugstore and I really wanted to try them.
The shade that I bought 940 Rose rush is a light pink colour with a cool lilac undertone. I personally like it, but I was hoping to get a more natural everyday colour. The price of the Maybelline matte lipsticks is around 8 euro and they are a little bit pricier than some of the other Maybelline lipsticks. Maybelline released a few very affordable products this year, you can read more about them here and here.
These lipsticks have indeed a matte finish, the formulation is amazing. Color Sensational matte have the typical pleasant sweet scent of the Maybelline lipsticks. You almost can’t feel the product on your lips and the formulation is hydrating. They last on me around 5 hours. The only thing I don’t like about this lipstick is that it emphasises all imperfections of the lips. Not only your lips should be exfoliated, but also well hydrated. This lipstick will also emphasis dry patches. I can’t really commend whether it feathers or not, because I own one of the light shades. It wears off evenly.
If you are looking for a matte lipstick and you manage to like one of the four shades, you’ll like this lipstick.
