Today I am excited to share with you the new Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. I love testing and reviewing a wide variety of products, but my favorite types of products to test are makeup — especially lipstick!
There are currently 10 Vivid Matte shades to choose from. The 2 shades I received in my VoxBox are “Nude Flush” and “Rebel Red.”
I am personally not a fan of red lipstick — I love it on others but I hate the way it looks on myself. So, as you can probably guess, “Nude Flush” was my favorite of the 2 shades I received.
One of the many reasons I have never been a fan of liquid lipstick is due to the wands that come with the product — not the product itself. I feel that the wands do not allow for precision when applying the liquid lipstick, so I always end up using my lip brush. I did not find that to be the case with this product! The wand’s shape allowed me to control exactly how much product was on the wand while maintaining precision.
Here is “Nude Flush.” Please ignore my awkward attempt at taking lip photos. I love lipstick, but I am terrible at taking pictures of my lips 😂
And . . . “Rebel Red” . . . which I am not a big fan of at all.
Applying the liquid lipstick is very simple. Simply line your lips, fill, and blot with a tissue. If you don’t blot, the lipstick takes forever to dry. The product applies smooth and is not tacky and sticky at all! — which in my opinion, is a HUGE plus. This is the first liquid lipstick I have used that didn’t feel sticky. As far as pigment goes, the product claims it’s “infused with pure pigments for high-impact color”. I found this to be true for “Nude Flush” but untrue for “Rebel Red.” I’ve read some reviews on this product that claim it has a very strong “perfume” type smell, but I don’t find that to be the case at all. It has a smell to it, but it is not strong — it honestly smells like makeup to me.
All in all, I think this is a great, inexpensive lip product. There is another shade I have my eyes on and I can’t wait to try it (Electric Pink)!
Have you tried the new Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid? What do you think about it? What’s your favorite shade?
I hope you all enjoy this review and have a lovely day!
