Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 5
In my previous FOTD a lot of you asked me about my lipstick. Well here it is ! Its Maybelline MAT 5 from their new range.I got this along with MAT 2 reviewed . This range has been well appreciated although the finish is not matte-but more of a satin finish.
Price: Rs 375.You can get it online.
The shade MAT 5 is a pinkish red which brightens up the face and doesnt look OTT. I am not a red lipstick person at all but I thought why not try this one. I like the fact that because of the pink undertones in it the shade brightens up the face.This shade is perfect for girls just venturing into bright makeup as it it bright without being in -your – face.
The packaging is a spin off from the regular color sensational lipstick packaging. The outer casing is brightly coloured with and shade number mentioned at the bottom. However,what I dont get is that maybelline has numbered them instead of naming them.
The texture is light weight and glides on well. At no point ,the lipstick feels drying on the lips .However,it has a tendency to settle into liplines if layered.
The pigmentation is great. One swipe gives you opaque coverage and covers lip pigmentation beautifully.
The staying power is decent. The little glossiness that can be seen on fresh application wears off after an hour or two and leaves a tint behind. It does fade slightly unevenly but nothing that looks unsightly.
Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 5 Swatches:-
I would like to reiterate that although these lipsticks are marketed as MATTE they are NOT fully matte.This is where the product loses points. But if this can be ignored ,its actually a very good lipstick at a pocket friendly price. Maybelline is playing it smart by keeping the prices reasonable as comapared to Lakme , Colorbar and Bourjois. Bourjois has actually touched MAC pricing with its new lippies.
I am not adding a FOTD here as i have a massive acne breakout. However,if you still wanna see how it looks on me –here it is.
