PRODUCT REVIEW: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

I was introduced to matte lipsticks in 2013 and since then, they’re literally the only type of lipsticks I purchase. I’ve heard many women complain about the drying effect of matte lipsticks, but that’s actually why I like them. Now some shades are more dry than others but I don’t mind the dryness. I also like them because the colors are so much more pigmented and they make my lips look plumper.

When I received two Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks to try I was super excited. I received Nude Rose and Rebel Red to test.

Here are a few features of the lipstick:

  • Smooth, easy application
  • Applicator has soft bristles and is contoured to fit your lips
  • Vivid colors/very pigmented
  • Matte effect without the drying
  • 2 coats will give you a glossier effect
  • Smells awesome
  • Available in 10 shades


Vivid Matte Liquid retails at only $7.99 and comes in the following shades:

  • Nude Thrill
  • Nude Flush
  • Pink Charge
  • Electric Pink
  • Fuchsia Ecstasy
  • Orange Shot
  • Rebel Red
  • Berry Boost
  • Vivid Violet
  • Possessed Plum

I really liked both shades but I liked Nude Flush more than the Rebel Red. The nude seemed to have more of a matte finish but it could’ve also been because I applied a thicker coat of the Rebel Red. A thicker coat will give you a glossy finish, which is not something I like at all.

The product is not 100% matte, it’s drier (for lack of a better word) than most lipsticks but it still has a sheen.
