Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks review swatch swatches 50 nude thrill 05 nude flush 45 possessed plum 40 berry boost 15 electric pink 30 fuchsia ecstacy 5 rebel red 25 orange shot
I received these at the recent Maybelline Blogger Event and I have been loving them! They should be available in stores right now and I would definitely recommend picking them up. These Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks are all about bold, vibrant colours and they definitely deliver. 

The formula of these is quite unique but I find that I actually really like it. They don’t set down to a budge proof matte like other formulas from Stila, Jefree Star, etc. Instead they are actually quite moisturising. The downside is that they don’t last as long but I’m okay with that because they apply smoother, wear evenly, are easy to reapply and don’t dry out my lips. I will say that I don’t find that these dry down to a matte by themselves though. It might be a bit of misnomer because they can look quite glossy (like in the comparison swatch picture) but if you blot with a tissue, like I did in the lip swatch photos here, they will look a lot more matte.

Lip Swatches (Left to Right):
  • Top Row: 50 Nude Thrill and 05 Nude Flush
  • Second Row: 45 Possessed Plum and 40 Berry Boost
  • Third Row: 15 Electric Pink and 30 Fuchsia Ecstasy
  • Last Row: 35 Rebel Red and 25 Orange Shot

The application is incredible I found the formula and applicator very easy to work with. The pigmentation is really great too in all but the “Possessed Plum” shade which I found a little patchy. All the others though are excellent and are completely opaque on the first application. They are definitely very vivid, punchy colours that looks absolutely gorgeous one. I particularly like the shade range with these because there is a gorgeous range of nudes, pinks, reds and even an orange. I do wish there was a Ruby Woo style blue-toned red in this range though. Something halfway between Fuchsia Ecstacy and Rebel Red maybe. How gorgeous would that be?

All in all I really do like these! I would give the Possessed Plum shade a miss because it is quite patchy but the rest are great. It is also worth noting that these aren't totally matte without some blotting and they don't dry down and totally set like some other matte liquid lipstick formulas but there are benefits to that too so it is worth balancing the pros and cons as well as evaluating what you are looking for in the formula. They retail for $17.95 but I absolutely never buy Maybelline for any more than 30% off because there are always excellent sales all over the place so just keep an eye out. 

Will you be picking some of these up? Do you already have some? If you do let me know what you think of them.

    1. Aw thanks! I actually usually like really blue toned reds so I was pleasantly surprised by Rebel Red because it is a bit warmer. I tried on Fuchsia Ecstasy at the event and really like it. Good luck getting though all those goodies. It took my two days of straight photographing haha

  2. I agree that these don't last as long but they are so much more moisturising which is a huge plus for me! Love your swatches! xx

    1. Aw thanks so much! I am always so self conscious of my uneven lips but what can you do? I definitely love that they aren't drying.

  3. These look so nice! I love your swatches! We all like the non-budge formula for certain occasions and events but for everyday it's great to have something so moisturising! Great post.

  4. I wasn't too interested in these since they don't dry matte but the two nude shades are really gorgeous! I might have to check those out in the next big sale. I do wish the shade range was a bit more varied though, I feel like there are a lot of similar pink tones!

    1. They are really pretty. Hey, if you can pick them up for half price or something, why not? I do agree that there are a lot of similar bold pink shades though :)
