Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipsticks! (Review & Swatches)

Influenster did it again with yet another cute VoxBox, this time featuring the Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks collection by Maybelline. If you are into matte liquid as I do, please keep reading!

Matte Liquid lipsticks seem to still be the thing since last year (if I remember correctly, it was around fall last year when they started popping out everywhere) when popular prestige brands introduced them. Of course drugstore brands could not stay out of it and today we have nice options without breaking the bag. Maybelline presents us their line of this type of lipsticks with their Vivid Matte Collection, from which I received 2 shades.

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Flush and Rebel Red.

These liquid lipsticks are more on the lip creme side: they’re very creamy and moisture the lips incredibly well, which makes the formula really comfy to wear. They dry completely matte after a bit (if you’re always in a hurry to get your liquid lipsticks dry and run matte super fast, then these are not for you) and they are like a regular lipstick that you may reapply as needed, which is perfectly fine for me because I love to put on lipstick regularly through the day.

I also love the scents of these, it is like a sweet candy fragrance that will not overwhelm your nose even if you’re sensitive to scents.

The thing I would improve about these lip cremes is their sheerness. Not sure about the other colors available, but from the duo I received, Rebel Red seem to be a bit sheer compared to Nude Flush, which covers my lips very well with just one coat. But aside of that, nothing is wrong with these lip cremes, I assure you will love them as I do.

Here are the swatches under direct sunlight. Excuse the horrible squares I did, I had a toddler hanging from my leg who refused to let me take pics alone…


It took me 2 coats of Rebel Red to get the color as it is shown in the pic on my wrist. As you can see, both are super pigmented applied properly.

From both, Nude Flush is my favorite because it looks like a perfect nude for me and it is the color I’ve been wearing almost daily since I received this VoxBox (close to a month ago). I think it is a shade that suits well to all skin tones. I’m going to keep an eye on the store close to me to see if they have other shades available, because Electric Pink and Pink Charge seem like colors I’d love to wear too.

Overall I like them. They retail for $7.99 a pop and there are 10 shades to choose from.

So tell me, have you tried these? Which colors do you like from this line? Most important: are you an Influenster already? What did you get in your latest VoxBox? Let me know in the comments!
