So I am back. Again. I am so bad in managing my time I couldn’t even update this blog. But anyways, I have here some lipsticks that I have been using for the past months. I want to share with you my thoughts and swatches as well of the Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipsticks by ColorSensational.
I forgot which month I received these but I am sure it’s around last quarter of last year. Honestly, I can feel that I already have a lot of lip products in my stash but I still enjoy trying out products different from what I already have.
Vivid Matte by Color Sensational is not a new line, I believe, but they added these new shades. And since I was not able to try this before, I decided to include a review instead of just giving you swatches.
At first, the colors look quite intimidating especially since I don’t normally apply extremely bold colors on my lips but I have gotten used to using them and I actually love Vivid 8!
The packaging is very similar to the other lipsticks from Maybelline. The product name and other information like ingredients and weight were printed on the plastic seal of the product. The only difference I see is that this the color of the cap which, I think, varies per line.
I also filmed a video (Tagalog) for this which is posted below. Feel free to watch it.
At first I thought these shades won’t look nice on me especially Vivid 13 but after some time, I have learned to like it as well.
I don’t want to mislead you by making at attempt to describe each color because I am not good with that and I will just let the photos speak for them.
What I like:
What I don’t like:
Here’s a proof that the Vivid Matte lipsticks from Maybelline leave stains which I like because I am the type who is not fond of reapplying makeup.
Overall, I enjoyed testing these lipsticks out and I am happy to say that I have found a favorite from this line (Vivid 8 FTW!). I prefer simple makeup but there are days that I want to add color, and since am not good with eye makeups, these are the easiest remedy for that. But if you will ask me if it is necessary to get all shades, my answer would be no. Get 2 shades that would suit your skin color and you are good to go!
