REVIEW + SWATCHES | Maybelline Rosy Matte Lipsticks

Picking the right shade of lipstick goes with my mood. Dark lippies if I want to look edgy and nude lippies if I want to look nice and sweet. So I tried these Maybelline Rosy Matte lipsticks by Color Sensational which basically are nude lip colors with a hint of rosy shade/tone.

Natural Beige, Soft Pink, Rosy Peach, Apricot Beige, Salmon Pink

Enticing colors, right? I became too excited when I saw the colors and hoped they will look good on me.

You will find the ingredients on the plastic seal. The shade name and manufacturing date can be found on the bottom part of the lipstick. The packaging is just too pretty to look at with the frosted cap and metallic tube that holds the bullet.

It comes in 5 rosy shades and, although I am not good in describing colors, I like the fact that shade names will give you an idea on how each shade would appear.

What I like:

  • Cute and girly packaging
  • With ingredients, manufacturing date and shade name
  • Packaging isn’t flimsy
  • Unscented
  • Pigmented
  • Creamy matte and easy to glide on the lips
  • Non-drying (slightly moisturizing)
  • Easy to reapply
  • Comes in 5 shades that I think will suit almost all skintones
  • Brighter shades lasts for 4 hours with eating and drinking (for a nude lip color, that’s just enough for me)
  • Rosy Peach and Soft Pink are my favorite shades from the line
  • Affordable (watch out because Maybelline goes on sale from time to time)
  • Available locally (Watsons, department stores)


  • It transfers

What I don’t like: 

  • Some shades need more swipes for me to get wanted opacity (Natural Beige and Apricot Beige)
  • Some shades have the tendency to settle on the lines and flaky lips (Natural Beige, Apricot Beige and Salmon Pink)

I may still use dark lip colors from time to time but I am happy that I have found one or two perfect rosy nude lip colors from this line. Overall, I think these lipsticks are perfect for everyday use. With the help of the rosy tones to each lipstick, pinays will now find it easier to go nude with their lip makeup without making them look washed out. I am happy to say that #iamgoingnude!
