New year and new launches! Maybelline New York is already out with new products. First was the Rock Nudes palette and now, the Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks. I will review the mascara in another post. In this one, I am talking about the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick Touch of Spice. These lipsticks are priced at Rs 575 and available in stores and online.
Maybelline New York introduces Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color, a burst of statement-making color meets a surge of creamy texture. Achieve beautiful-looking lips and statement-making color with this supremely sensational matte lipstick. These hydrating lip colors glide smoothly and evenly on lips keeping them moisturized all day long.
The Maybelline Creamy Mattes launched in the US nearly two years back and I was always attracted to the shade Touch of Spice. It is one of the most popular shades in the range and is a beautiful dark, dusty rose with mauve undertones. This color will work on all skin tones and is the perfect MLBB shade. You can wear it to work and at night, it will pair beautifully with dark, smokey eyes. Revlon Matte Balm Sultry is very similar to Touch of Spice and so is MAC Twig.
Packaging of the Creamy Mattes is similar to all the Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks except the lid is a frosted mauve. In terms of the formula, it is not a true matte and therefore, quite comfortable on the lips. It feels quite velvety, almost like a silicon primer. It has good color payoff and couple of swipes give an opaque coverage. The lipstick does not bleed, feather or emphasize my lip lines. It lasts for around four hours and do not dry my lips.
I am loving the formula of this range and the shade Touch of Spice. At Rs 575, it is a good buy especially if super matte lipsticks are not your thing. I have my eyes on the shade Vibrant Violet from this range and will buy it next. Let me know in the comments below if you have any other recommendations.
