Packaging: This lipstick comes in a packaging similar to the Maybelline Lip Polish; however the matte black cap differentiates it from the Maybelline Lip Polishes. I really liked the chic packaging. The transparent bottle holds the liquid lipstick and it has a black cap that has the applicator attached with a small wand. The packaging is attractive and travel friendly.
The sponge applicator works great in picking the right amount of the lipstick and allows easy application. I really like the small wand, bigger wands do not work well with me.
It is a liquid lipstick that glides on lips smoothly. It is very light weight and is absolutely non-sticky. Maybelline claims that this is a matte lipstick with the comfort of gloss. But it is not an absolute matte and still has a bit of sheen. I do not mind that sheen at all as it is not like the gloss shine, but is something that makes lips appear healthy.
Once applied it is just like glossy lip color but after a minute or so it settles to a semi matte finish or may be even less of a matte finish and more of a creamy lipstick.
Mat 8 is a perfect blend of orange and red. This orangish red hue is perfect for all skin tones. Duskier skin tones who miss flaunting pure orange lip colors may try this.
This lip color is not very pigmented. The lack of color pigments with this shade kinda let me down; this lip color would have nailed it if it had better pigmentation
My Experience: The Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipsticks have been really impressive and I really like the fact that with such a collection of just 8 lipsticks, Maybelline created a perfect variation between the shades and yes even if you have all the eight shades, you are gonna have a purpose for each shade in your vanity.
As I have always been mentioned, this lipstick too is very light on lips and has a subtle hydrating effect.
This is a gorgeous red based orange shade and will flatter all skin tones. Duskier skin tones will love this orange lip color for them.
This lipstick stays for 3-4 hours with mild snacking and drinks. It will definitely not survive a full meal. After fading it leaves a very vague stain.
Overall, this is a good lip color for anyone who is looking for a delicate orange lip color, which is not very bold.
