I love that drugstore makeup companies are bringing out there own liquid lipsticks. I think it was about time. I have always been someone who has payed a little extra when it comes to splurging on the lip products. So when the drugstore companies starting coming out with there own, I was over the moon!
There has been a lot of talk of the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks, so I had to try them out to see what all the fuss was about. First impression: they aren't matte, but they are still amazing! The packaging is basic, it's small and petite which is great for on the go touch ups or even traveling. I do like at how simple the lettering is of the lipsticks. It's really catching the whole minimalism vibe, and I am all for that!
-they last forever!
-there is a wide color selection, so there is something everyone will like
-since the shade range is so vast, you can really wear them all year long!
-the dove tip applicator makes it super simple to glide on
I don't like:
-they aren't as matte as I would have hoped
-there is a slight glossy tint to the finished product
-the plastic packaging isn't so great, one of my lipsticks was a little cracked when I bought it.
I decided to try out some transition colors for the spring. I went with Rebel Red, Pink Charge and Electric Pink. I think I'll probably be wearing Rebel Red the most, since I love a good red lip! It's a color that can be worn night and day! For the spring, I am really excited to bring in some of the pinker shades into my look, therefore, I think Electric Pink and Pink Charge will be perfect!
All in all, I am very happy with the formula and the color pay off. I wish they were more matte, but that is something I can overlook! I have been a huge fan of the Maybelline mascaras for a while, and I can add these liquid lipsticks to my list of favorites as well!
