My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 1:
I am a Maybelline girl. Most of my favorite makeup products are from Maybelline. How could I miss out on these new lipsticks! This new Velvet Matte lipstick’s packaging reminds me of the lip polish range; I love them. It comes at an affordable price, and is totally worth the price to me.
Packaging: Maybelline Velvet Matte comes in a clear, plastic tube packaging with a very bold matte black cap, which indicates the theme – matte. The tube is really cute and from the outside, it appears as if there is a lipstick bullet inside the packaging. It’s very easy to identify the color, owing to its color-coded packaging. The fact that they have mentioned the shade name on their website and not on the packaging has left me confused though. Only the shade number is present on the packaging. It also contains a nice small wand with a uniquely shaped sponge applicator. The applicator glides easily on the lips and packs good amount of product at a time. I love this attractive glam packaging.
Shade: I think this is a lipstick range which goes with all skin tones. There are so many good options for all types of complexions. I have two shades – MAT 5 and MAT 1. MAT 1 is a very gorgeous hot pink shade. I have so many pink shades in my collection still I couldn’t resist myself from buying it. It has a neon touch in the pink. The pink in this one looks very bright on the lips and makes lips look picture perfect. This pink will work well for almost all skintones. I have noticed that every shade in this range has warm undertone, so basically they are perfect for Indian skin tones. This is MAT 1 is another very good pink with warm undertones.
It changes its color with light in photos, and at times it looks deeper. But in daylight, it is a perfect neon pink shade. It instantly brightens up my skin tone, and looks so pretty on me. There is no shimmer present in the product. It reminds me their Pink Alert range. It is quite similar to with Pow4. It looks different under different lights, but it mostly looks eye popping bright. I love it!
Texture & Quality: Maybelline always offers good quality products, and this is the case with this range too. It can be rightly called a liquid lipstick too. It has a super creamy texture with a velvety matte finish – semi matte finish, to be more precise. But it take some time to become matte, and it actually never dries out completely. It glides smoothly on the lips, and keeps lips soft the whole day. After application you need to wait for almost 10 minutes to get the actual matte finish. It provides an even and smooth texture.
It provides an even smooth texture. Quality of the lipstick is really great. It can hide you dry lips. Also after a long day, it never feels dry like the other matte lipsticks. I feel that the Mat 5 is more matte one than this Mat 1. This one gives juicy pink lips. The most interesting part is the pigmentation; it offers great pigmentation. One swipe gives nice pink lip. The product gets distributed evenly and looks superb.
Staying Power: It can’t stay like the normal matte lipsticks. Due to its creamy texture, it stays little less time than other hi range matte lipsticks. It stays on my lips for almost 5-6 hours nicely. But after having meal, it starts to fade. The velvety finish goes away a little after 4 hours, and still the color nicely stays on the lips. Basically it does not completely vanish from the lips and the color is still noticeable. The shine of the color goes away after around 4 hours. It never settles into the fine lines. It can be easily removed with a makeup remover. It has an average staying power; to make it last longer, you need to reapply it after 4 hours.
Overall it gives a very natural finish with healthy-looking lips. I must say that it can be used in winter also. It is almost like a creamy lipstick; it has a super creamy formula in it which keeps lips very healthy and moisturized. The shade has just won my heart too as it is such a pretty pink shade. If you put this lip shade on the lips, you won’t need any other extra makeup. Love love love it! 🙂
