Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4 Review


 Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4

When the new Maybelline Body Matte collection I was launched, I got pretty excited about it as I am a complete matte lover. Sadly, I was left disappointed by Maybelline after checking out some reviews and swatches online. It’s not about the shade or texture but their claim of matte finish, which  is completely false. I just don’t like brands which try to create sensation on false claims as it becomes difficult to trust them ahead .Its not that they aren’t aware that the range is not matte but they still prefer to promote it that way.

Anyways, coming to the lipstick Mat 4

As Shweta was all praise of the shade, so I got one for myself and its true that shades of this range are pretty interesting and decently priced.


About Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick Mat4 :-

  • Hydrating matte with honey nectar
  • Moisturising agents like rosa canina oil and jojoba oil
  • Powder less matte pigments ensure true vivid shades
  • Price – 375 for 3.5gm.You can buy it online.
  • Packaging– I like packaging which is almost similar to Maybelline colorsensational lipsticks, only thing is this one has a pretty dispersed red cap and silver tube. In fact its funny that even their color whisper range, which is yet to be launched in India, too has the same packaging.

Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4 experience:-

When I swatched the shade, I completely fell in love with it but sadly its not high on pigmentation. My upper lip is pigmented than the lower one and I need to glide the shade 2-3 times to match it up with the lower lip shade. Some of you might find it little drying and settling into fine lines especially for those who suffer from extreme dry lips.

Coming to the staying power , Lipstick stays around one or two hours but it leaves a strong tint behind which stays until removed by a makeup remover.


Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4 Swatches:-

I absolutely adore the shade .It’s an orange shade with red undertones. It glides beautifully .


As I told you that it doesn’t look as bold on my lips as in the swatch  but I can get bit close to  the shade after layering it 2-3 times.

What I like about Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4:-

  • Decently priced with beautiful shade
  • Glides easily
  • Pigmentation can be built up which won’t work on highly pigmented lips.
  • Average wear time but tint stays for long long hours.
  • Pretty packaging.

What I do not like about Maybelline Bold matte Lipstick Mat 4

  • It’s definitely not matte
  • Lipstick get vanished with in two hours but the tint stays for eight hours
  • Won’t work on highly pigmented lips at least shade MAT 4 won’t

Will I recommend it to others – Weigh the pros and cons and decide for yourself. I personally liked the shade on myself 🙂
