Ohhhhh Maybelline, how I do adore you! Maybelline has released The New Mattes Lipstick Collection for Fall 2014, which consists of 10 shades, and are to be part of their permanent line. The collection is popping up in the US, and is expected to be released in Canada in October 2014. Mattes lipsticks are trending this Fall season, and after being somewhat disappointed in the Milani Bedazzled Matte Lipsticks (see my review), I was anxious to try my luck with Maybelline. I was able to pick up a couple of shades while traveling in the US. I do believe I heard the voice of Angels when I spotted them! But….buyer beware, as I purchased one from Walgreens and the other at Target, with the Walgreens price $2 more than at Target!
Here are the two I purchased:
These matte lipsticks have a creamy texture that apply so smoothly onto your lips. I found them to be much more comfortable to wear, as they are buttery and do not dry out your lips, or make them feel like they are screaming out for moisture! Instead your lips look matte and smooth and any cracks or dryness on your lips isn’t quite accentuated. There is great pigmentation, with just one swipe and they have provided on average 3 to 4 hours of wear. Like the other Color Sensational Lipsticks, their is a slight scent…..almost like play-doh, but it doesn’t linger. I highly recommend these lipsticks for those, like me, who would like to wear a matte lipstick, but find the traditional mattes too drying and uncomfortable to wear. I know I will be hunting down the other shades in this line as they all look so gorgeous! What do you think? Have you had the chance to try them out yet?
Fellow Canadians, look forward to October!!
Thanks for stopping by……until next time:
