I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Creamy Mattes before — Clay Crush and MPK04 (or Rosy Peach). Its nothing new to me but what I have for today’s post are 3 shades I wear most of the time.
CREAMY BUT MATTE
Color Sensational® Creamy Matte Lip Color. Creamy matte-finish lip makeup available in gorgeous hues. Achieve beautiful-looking lips in just moments.
Nude Nuance is a straight up warm-toned, medium brown. I’ve been looking for a medium brown like this, one that doesn’t look too ashy on me. It sits just right on my pale lips. It’s not too dark either that relatives of mine will look at me in a weird way
Touch of Spice has more warmth compared to Nude Nuance and has rosy tones to it. I apologize for not taking a photo of it in its pristine condition. I just got too excited after I bought it. As soon as I got home, I immediately opened it, applied it on my lips and promptly fell in love with the shade. This is my favorite out of all my Maybelline Creamy Mattes. In fact, this is one of the lipsticks I bring with me everywhere and it has a home in the pocket of my handbag.
Touch of Spice
I was drawn to Mesmerizing Magenta because in real life and at first glance, it seems to have a bit of a purple undertone to it. But on swatching, it’s more mauve-y and fuchsia like. I do have to build it up to get that really strong cool-toned magenta color on me because cool-toned shades just brighten up my face.
I mentioned before that these last 4 hours at most on me without eating or drinking. These are not transfer-proof ladies so expect them to fade faster if you’re going to have a meal, especially a greasy one. Despite being creamy, I still put on some lip balm before these to prevent any dryness. Here are the swatches of the three on my arm.
In general these are good lipsticks for everyday wear that won’t break the bank. These retail for Php 299 here in the Philippines but I always buy them when Maybelline has a sale and they usually have one every month. Like this August for instance. For the whole month, they’re celebrating National Lipstick Month so their lipsticks are at Php 100 off. Go here to know all the lipstick lines included.
