My Thoughts About Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 5

Packaging: This lipstick comes in a packaging similar to the Maybelline Lip Polish; however the mat 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 Applicator: 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.

Texture: 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.

Shade: Mat 5 is a fiery orange shade.  This shade will go well with most Indian skin tones.

Pigmentation: This lip color is not very pigmented. It will not go completely opaque in couple of swipes but will cover around 90% of lip pigmentation. I have a bit of pigmentation on my upper lip and you can see how this lip color covered it.

My Experience:

As I mentioned earlier, it is a pure orange lip color. If you are a true orange colors lover, then you just can’t be without giving a share of space in your vanity case to this lip color.

This lip color is very forgiving on lips and is slightly less glossy than the other shades in this range.

This lipstick stays for 3-4 hours with mild snacking and drinks. It will definitely not survive a full meal. After fading there is no strong stain that it leaves, but yes the slight stain is evident.

Overall, it is a nice orange lip color which most college goers will look for. I am not sure any girl in late 20s or early 30s would give this shade a try.

What I like about Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 5?

  • Chic packaging.
  • Travel friendly.
  • Smooth texture.
  • Feels light on lips.
  • Does no dry lips.
  • Fabulous shade for fair skin tones.
  • Reasonably priced.

What I don’t like about Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 5?

  • Not very long staying.
  • Its not absolute matte as per claims.
  • Not very pigmented.

Rating: 3.5/5
