Hello gorgeous ladies,
When I got a chance to try out the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour, I did pick up a few shades. Today, the shade that I am going to talk about is Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour in “N*de Thrill.” Let’s have a look.
Lip color glides on smooth to a matte finish. Infused with pure pigments for high-impact color. Creamy liquid base for a soft, cushiony feel. Drench your lips in Vivid Matte. Bold, vivid color glides easily onto lips for a velvety matte finish. Formula is comfortable and creamy with a smooth feel upon application. With full color coverage, the result is a rich, intense lip look in a range of colors from N*de Flush to Pink Charge to Vivid Violet. Available in 10 vibrant, matte shades.
CAD 9.99 (approximately INR 520).
My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Nude Thrill Vivid Matte Liquid:
Packaging: The Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour comes in a square plastic tube which is clear and is hence colour coded to the shade of the lipstick. The tube does not come wrapped in a protective plastic paper which does not assure hygiene. The cap of the tube is black and contains a flat sponge-tip application wand.
Color: “Nude Thrill” is a beautiful warm-toned n*de shade with a tinge of pink which gives the lips a healthy flush of colour. This shade is absolutely pretty and wearable, thus can be used on a daily basis. I am not pretty sure that if you like n*de lipsticks, you are definitely going to like this shade. This shade will suit most Indian skin tones I believe, especially fair to medium skin tones.
Pigmentation: This lip cream is intensely pigmented and delivers full colour payoff in just one swipe on the hand, but while applying on the lips, the application is a bit streaky in the first swipe and it needs some more to cover that up for an even application. The shade gives enough coverage to hide pigmented lips as well.
Texture: The texture of this lip colour is super creamy and feels very buttery, like cake frosting. This baby is not as watery or drying as standard liquid lipsticks, and also does not contain any shimmer or shine. They are ideally supposed to be matte, but even after a few minutes of application, it does not dry completely, but remains creamy. Hence I prefer topping it off with translucent powder to mattify and prevent any transfer of lip product.
Longevity: The staying power of this lipstick is around 4-5 hours after which it starts to fade unevenly. If you want to wear this lipstick for the whole day, you need to have this baby handy for re-application; else it will give a shabby look to the lips. Since it does not dry down completely, it does transfer to cups and mugs.
