8 limited shades
Last Fall Maybelline jumped on the all matte finish bandwagon with their release of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick by Color Sensational Collection. It was an instant hit due to its rich, creamy and extremely comfortable formula with a soft, matte finish. Bold matte lips are still a huge trend and were found all over the Fall/Winter 2015 runways. Maybelline is playing on their success by introducing 8 limited edition shades this season. It’s using the same great formula as the pervious lineup and will sure to be in everyone’s makeup bags this fall.
Maybelline Creamy Mattes are unlike any other matte lipstick you’ve tried. Forget that dry, stiff, non-moisturizing texture and experience a thick, creamy, almost buttery-like texture like no other. It glides onto the lips with ease, without pulling or tugging on the skin and takes the traditional matte lipstick formula to an entirely different level. This unique formula will make you rethink your old, out-dated matte lipsticks and leave you thinking… why can’t all matte lipsticks be this good?
Maybelline Creamy Matte has a super soft, buttery and creamy formula that applies and looks incredibly smooth and even upon first application. It’s incredibly bold, vibrant and saturated in colour from the moment you apply, until it slowly starts to fade without losing its intensity. It’s highly pigmented and truly opaque in a single swipe, although it’s buildable to an even strong colour payoff for evening wear. It provides up to 5 solid hours of wear time, maybe even 6 to 7, depending on how much eating and drinking you’re doing. Although it doesn’t claim to be moisturizing or hydrating, it doesn’t feel like it’s sucking the moisturize out of my dry lips, nor does it crack, feather or bleed throughout the entire wear time. It comes in 8 limited shades and retails for $9.99 each.
