8 New Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipsticks
Hello beautiful people
How’s the Valentine’s week going on? Mine has been going great so far and I expect the same for you all. To add more to the week of love and pampering, I am here to share my recent haul with you all. The haul may make you envy but the swatches will surely make it easier for you to pick your shade for this Valentine’s Day.
Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipsticks were launched in the end of 2015 and honestly the product had a well thought launch. The idea behind these is really apt.
Maybelline this time tried to add the glam of matte lip colors with the ease of glosses. There were eight shades of these launched in India and I grabbed them all to review these. Of course Anamika is the Santa who gave me this fabulous opportunity and many thanks to her for this.
What’s the wait now? Let me straight away share the swatches and product details with you all!

My Thoughts about 8 New Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipsticks
Packaging: These come in a packaging similar to the Maybelline Lip Polish. I really liked the chic packaging. The transparent bottles hold the liquid lipstick and they have a black cap that has a the applicator attached.
The packaging is attractive and travel friendly. The sponge applicator too works great in picking the right amount of the lipstick and allows easy application.
Texture: These are liquid lipsticks and glides on lips smoothly. These are very light weight and re absolutely non-sticky. Maybelline claims that these are matte lipsticks with the comfort of glosses. But these are not absolute mattes and still have 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 these are just like glossy lip colors but after a minute or so they settle to semi matte finishes.
These lip colors do not have names but rather have numbers. Starting from left to right the shade are:
Mat 1: It is a beautiful pink shade apt for fair to medium skin tones. It is not an OTT coral pink but yes, it has a bit of coral appeal.
Mat 4: It is a peachy pink shade. The perfect summery peachy pink lip color I would say.
Mat 5: Finding the right shade of orange is a mystery. If you are looking for an orange lip color which is not loud and the same time does not have evident red tones, then this is the shade for you, a face brightening orange shade.
Mat 6: It is a nice berry shade which is not very intense. This shade will compliment all Indian skin tones.
Mat 7: It is a gorgeous tomato red shade. It brightens up the face and is perfect when you wish to make a bold lip statement.
Mat 8: It 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.
Mat 10: It is a middle toned pink with the slight purple tint. This is one unique shade that too will go well with all skin tones.
Mat 11: It is a pure red shade. If you are a red lover Then you must absolutely checkout this deep red lip color.
This was all about the eight shades. Stay tuned for the upcoming reviews and more details about these lip colors. Do not miss the gorgeous sequenced black pouch that I received as a freebie. I love this pouch… how about you??
