Hey everybody! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I have been a little MIA on social media and on the blog, as I have had a death in the family, and spent all weekend in the hospital. That along with trying to get myself back in the blogging groove has just proved to be too much.
None the less, I did want to get a review up today, as these lipsticks have been around for awhile now, and I don’t want to be too far behind. These Maybelline Matte Lipsticks come in 8 shades, even though some blogs I have read say they have 10 shades. Maybe Canadians didn’t get sent the full line? Either way, there really is something here for everybody.
Shades from left to right: Ravishing Rose, Lust for Blush, Daringly Nude, Mesmerizing Magenta, Faint for Fuchsia, Touch of Spice, Craving Coral and Siren in Scarlet.
My favorites in the bunch are definitely Touch of Spice, Lust for Blush, and Faint for Fuchsia.
These lipsticks provide a matte finish, but their formula does have an oil base so they are very comfortable on the lips. Upon first application, you will have the slightest sheen on the lip, however a quick blot from a tissue will take care of that if you are after a true matte finish.
The wear time on these is definitely acceptable, however if you plan on having a meal, or drinking excessively, I would definitely bring your tube with you for some touch ups afterwards.
These lipsticks are really rivalling if not beating my higher end lip products, and for the price ($10.99 CAD) you can’t go wrong. Definitely try these out, if you are on the hunt for a matte lip color that won’t completely dry your lips out!
And as always folks, this is a drugstore item. Never ever, under any circumstance, pay full price.
Have you tried these lipsticks yet? What is your favorite shade?
