Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1 Review & Swatches


Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1 – Hello ladies, I am going to review Maybelline Colorsensational Bold MatteMat 1 Lipstick today. I like Maybelline for their lipsticks as they hardly give duds and are cheap so it doesn’t hurt the pocket to try new shades. I got this when I wanted a try a bright neonish pink shade. I did not want to invest much as I was not sure I would wear it much or not, so buying a shade from Maybelline looked like an obvious choice. So how did I like it, read on to know?

My experience with Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1:

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: It is a true neon Pink shade. If you like the shade, you can absolutely rock this. In fact, this can be a good start if you want to venture into neon shades like me. It would look pretty on fair and medium skin tones, but if you are dusky and in mood to wear this you can rock this shade like nobody’s business. This reminds me of a lipstick Rihanna wore and looked hawt!

Pigmentation: Pigmentation wise this is great! One swipe gives the color but if you want this color in its true form, two swipes are a must.

Staying power: Not more than 2-4 hours. It gets easily transferred and goes off quickly :-(.

Okay, so till now you might be thinking that it is good lipstick to own which even I thought in the beginning but it is horrible! It settles in fine lines and gives a very uneven application! I have used this on primed lips, exfoliated lips but it does not work! Earlier I thought I got a defected piece but even one more shade I have from this range is equally bad. I love the shade, the packaging but this ruins my experience with this lipstick.

Well it is good that this is cheap but still it is not this cheap that we need to compromise this much! I am ok with less staying power but this is something I do not like in my lipsticks. Sometimes, on bad lips days it looks as if I have applied some cheap quality lipstick. When I got this, I wore it daily but as I started realizing how it is, I have stopped using this at all!


What I like about Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1:-


  • Trendy, eye catching color
  • Not pricey
  • Attractive packaging
  • Pigmentation is good
  • Easily available
  • Does not dry lips


What I don’t like about Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1:-


  • Uneven application

Well, this one con somehow outweighs all the pros this lipstick has. If you really like this color and want to buy this lipstick, I would suggest you to try this at the store and wait for some time before buying. If this works for you, you have a winner in your kitty!

I hope you found the review useful! Have you tried Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 1?



  1. I bought this today…really not happy with this one. It looks damn cheap after application. I had to apply lipgloss after applying this lipstick..doesn’t work too much. I hate this shade.
