Review: Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick

Maybelline has to be one of my favorite drugstore brands.  There have been very few products that I have disliked from them.

It seems like every makeup brand is coming out with their own matte lipsticks and Maybelline was one of them!


Around $5.50

I picked up three shades.


Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color delivers a burst of bold lip color and a surge of creamy texture in make-a-statement shades, for mattes your lips will love to wear!

    (Left to Right: “657 Nude Nuance”, “691 Rich Ruby”, “696 Burgundy Blush”)

     (Top to bottom: “657 Nude Nuance”, “691 Rich Ruby”, “696 Burgundy Blush”)

The formula is definitely a creamy matte.  It isn’t what you would expect from your typical matte lipstick.  Matte lipsticks tend to be very hard to apply, but these go on like butter and are extremely opaque.  It doesn’t tug at your lips which is a nice change!

I also love that they didn’t dry out my lips.  I wouldn’t necessarily say they are hydrating, but they don’t sink into lines or feel uncomfortable to wear.

They did wear a little throughout the day, but I was surprised at how well they held up (even through meals!)  The deeper shades also left a bit of a stain behind which looked beautiful.

All in all, I’m going to say Maybelline hit it out of the park again with their matte lipsticks!  The formula is great, the wear time rocks and the colors are beautiful!  I definitely need to go out and purchase the other shades in this line!

Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!
