Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 7

Hi everyone,

I know you all have been wondering where the red lippie lover inside me has vanished. Well, my love for red lip colors is never gonna subside, it is just that I have saved the red lipsticks reviews for the last. As it is said properly, save the best for the last.

Leaving aside the popular saying, this particular red lip color form this range is not the best but is not bad either.

About Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick

Get petal smooth lips with Maybelline New York’s New Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks

This season is all about Mattes! Give your lips a petal smooth finish with Maybelline New York’s New Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks.

We bring to you a Liquid to Matte sensation with New Color Sensational Velvet Matte. This innovative “Liquid to Matte” product is a hydrating cream color that glides on smooth and sets with a matte finish. It comes in 7 trendy colors that are not only designed for long wear but are also lightweight. The velvety, buttery cushion-like texture keeps lips in comfort all day. Here’s your go-to matte lipstick, that will always make you look chic and classy.

Here’s why you’ll love it

  • Its hydrating formula keeps lips non-sticky, non-chalky and hydrated all day long
  • Available in 7 vibrant, richly-pigmented hues.
  • It is lightweight, making it perfect for long wear.

Price: Rs. 475

Shades: 8 shades are launched in this range.

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.

My Thoughts About Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 7

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 or may be even less of a matte finish and more of a creamy lipstick.

Shade: Mat 7 is a gorgeous tomato red shade. It brightens up the face and is perfect when you wish to make a bold lip statement.

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.

My Experience with Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Mat 7

Needles to say I love the Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipsticks, because they are very light on lips and do not feel heavy at all like many other liquid lipsticks.

This is a gorgeous tomato red shade, a very favorite shade of most makeup lovers. This shade is a brightening shade and just a splash of this color on your lips without much makeup will make you set to go.

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 noticeable stain.

Overall, this is a great lip color for all red lip color lovers. The only thing that makes me cringe is the lack of pigmentation.
