Last time I reviewed Mat 1 from the same range from Maybelline and now I am going to review Mat 3. Mat 1 was a total disappointment but read on to know how this one has fared. In spite of a few duds from Maybelline, I still feel this brand delivers what it promises and I love the fact that it is still economical. I love the shade range and the awesomeness this brand provides. So, enough with my blabbering; I should get back to the review now.

My experience with Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 3:
Packaging: I like the packaging of this lipstick. It is bold and young. The cover is Red and plain. The lipstick case is Silver; I like the young feel of the packaging.
Shade: This is a great buildable color; one swipe gives a lovable and sweet Coral flush to lips. While on swiping it a couple times, you get a bright Orange lipstick. This is quite wearable and I think would suit Indian skin tones very beautifully. This is a type of shade which flatters a huge variety of skin tones. It just brightens up the whole face, if you don’t have much time just wear this lipstick and be sure to get noticed in a good way .
Pigmentation: Pigmentation wise this is great! One swipe gives a wash of beautiful soft coral shade but when swiped more than once, it gives me full on Orange lips. I love wearing it both ways, as a stain it is a beautiful work friendly shade too.
Staying power: Not more than 2-4 hours. It gets easily transferred and goes off quickly . At this price I cannot complain much on this point though.
Formula: I like the creamy formula of this one. Maybelline was in a jolly mood when they named this range as I did not find this lipstick to be matte, but I am happy with this being bold. This gives a creamy finish and looks good. Basically that’s what matters to me when it comes to lipsticks. And I would take these any day as compared to the uncomfortable, drying matte lipsticks.
Since I also have Mat 1 and I am not happy with it, a comparison between both is much warranted. I can gladly say that this is way better in finish and feel than Mat 1. It flatters the lips and looks good, just use it on moisturized lips and you are good to go. If you are looking for one shade to buy from this range, do check this out. It is a two in one lipstick. Gives different results as a stain and a lipstick and looks good both ways.
After having a bad experience with Mat 1, my faith in this brand is once again restored.
What I like about Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 3:
- Nice Orange lipstick which would suit all skin tones
- Looks beautiful Coral when applied sheer
- Does not dry lips
- Brightens face
- Creamy formula and finish
- Easily available
- Not drying
- Has no irritating smell
What I don’t like about Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 3:
- Some of you might not like the low staying power but I am Okay with it considering the cost and non-drying formula
Even if this is not the best formula but the bright and beautiful shade makes up for it. Every girl should own one Orange lipstick and if you are looking for one, do give this a try.
