My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Cherry Chic Powder Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: Like all other Maybelline lipsticks, the Powder Matte Lipstick also comes in a maroon colored matte finish cap with a silver base. The name of the range is printed on a plastic wrap. Also, the lipstick comes with a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube, which indicates the shade. I have so many Maybelline lipsticks, and they all look similar in my tray, so it is really difficult to spot a particular shade from my stash. I wish they come with a new packaging. However, I find the lipstick to be absolutely travel-friendly.
Shade and pigmentation: The powder matte range has 12 beautiful shades for all skin tones. The shade, “Cherry Chic” is a unique and beautiful burgundy color with a hint of brown. It is not a usual cherry shade, it is a little different and is a warm shade that will look beautiful on all skin tones. I am not a fan of pure red shades. I love this beautiful burgundy color, and it is a gorgeous shade that goes with all kind of makeup. It is neither too dark nor a light color. I’m really impressed with its subtle look. Also, the shade doesn’t have any shimmers in it, and it is a super pigmented color that needs only a couple of swipes for the perfect color pay off. The best part is, it can hide the pigmentation on the lips really well.
Texture and quality: To follow the trend of super matte finish lipsticks, Maybelline has come up with the powder matte range. This lipstick has a beautiful ultra matte finish which looks stunning on lips. It doesn’t have any shine like their other matte lipsticks. Though it provides a powdery matte finish, it has a super soft smooth texture that glides effortlessly on the lips. It provides an even looking finish and feels extremely lightweight on the lips. It is one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks that I have ever tried. It doesn’t feel patchy or dry on the lips. It never highlights my dry patches too. I absolutely love this non-drying matte finish.
As it settles into a beautiful matte texture, it doesn’t transfer or smudge. It is also a waterproof lipstick. It provides a decent hydration to the lips, but after a couple of hours, it makes my lips slightly dry. Still, it doesn’t feel uncomfortable. The formula is perfect for those who feel uncomfortable to wear matte lipsticks just because of dryness. Also, this lipstick has a very nice smell in it that is good for all.
Staying power: Now, coming to the staying power, it stays good for around 6 hours with a meal. It can survive lunch, but it fades away slightly after a heavy lunch, though I don’t have any problem to reapply it because the reapplication never makes it patchy and it doesn’t look messy on the lips. Also, the shade is easy to remove with a makeup removing wipe. The lipstick never settles into fine lines or creases.
Conclusion: I love its formula and finish as it feels very comfortable on the lips. The lipstick is a perfect choice for this summer. I don’t know why they have named it “Cherry Chic” as it is more of a warm burgundy color, which looks amazing. In this entire range, if you want to try a different shade, Cherry Chic is one of the best options to go for.
