Recently Maybelline had launched Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks in 8 shades and I purchased 4 from the whole range.
Price Rs 475/-
Packaging is exactly same as the Maybelline Lip Polishes except that it has a matte black cap. It has a tilted leaf shaped applicator of which once you get hang of it you’ll love it as it gives an even application. There are 8 shades of Maybelline Velvet Matte by Colorsensational range of which I have MAT 1, MAT 4, MAT 5, MAT 8. I was more inclined towards pinks and corals rather that berry tones as I already have GLAM 6 lip polish and I love it as it is super pigmented.
Coming to the finish of these Velvet Matte Lipsticks they are true to its name AT ALL. They are not matte liquid lipsticks whatsoever. They have a thick balm like consistency and are really hard to build up as the whole situation gets messy. Maybelline Velvet Matte by Colorsensational Lipsticks are very thick in consistency and because of that they are very heavy on the lips. I did not like the quality at all as first of all they are not matte and secondly because of the thick consistency they feel heavy on the lips. If you want to build up the color best option is to wear a lip liner beneath. If not applied properly chances are there that it may stain your teeth, I know it’s the same situation with all the lip products but with Maybelline Velvet Matte one has it be extra pre-cautious because of its balm like texture.
MAT 1 is a pink color which I absolutely loved as sometimes pink shades when applied to lips give a coral finish on the pigmented lips but with the Maybelline Velvet Matte 1 I absolutely loved the fact that it was true to its color as I have slightly pigmented lips.
MAT 4 is a light coral color which I had to layer several times to get the intensity but somehow couldn’t get through. Its wear time was very poor as compared to the other shades. It can be used just to give a little hint of color when you are not in the mood of lipstick/gloss.
MAT 5 is a bright orange color. It is a tricky color and may not look good everyone it is slightly on the cool tone side.
MAT 8 was the brightest of all. It is an orange based red shade which had the most color intensity in just one swipe.
Overall Maybelline Velvet Matte by Colorsensational lipsticks are not for you if you are looking for a good matte liquid lipstick and if you want to get them just to add up your collection I’d say go for MAT 1 or brighter shades like MAT 8 or MAT 6/MAT 7 which are berry shades I guess. You can buy from here for a reduced price.
