My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11:
Maybelline mostly had glossy and creamy ranges, and I am so happy that they came out with some matte ones for matte lovers. The velvet mattes come in a fancy packaging as same as the lip polishes. They have transparent square bottle with the shade easily visible which helps me to pick the one I want to rock for the day. It has a black matte cap which totally complements the bottle. These look very cute and being so tiny, they can be easily carried around in the pocket, clutch, handbag; would just occupy a little space in the vanity. Coming to the price, can Maybelline ever go wrong with pricing? Not really. The price is very reasonable for everyone to get velvety lips and stun the day.
The shades I picked are Mat 6, Mat 8 and Mat 11. Why do they call these this way? Wouldn’t some cute names have been better and less confusing? The wand is nicely shaped but we have to be a little careful during application because it is intensely pigmented and any mistakes will cause a lot of smudging. The consistency is thick and creamy. The shade is totally opaque without any shimmers in it which is the best part. It is actually velvety smooth and glides very smoothly on the lips without settling into fine lines. The shade “MAT 11” is a classy deep red with slight hints of maroon which adds that depth to the colour. It is one of the best shades from the range to try out.
It screams boldness and elegance. My face looks absolutely beautiful the moment I apply it and it complements my skin-tone very well. It also makes me look fairer than usual. It is a perfect Christmas red for those who don’t like carrying blood reds with orangey hues. If I could perfectly describe this particular red, I would call it the red of a red velvet cheesecake because the shade is exactly the same and gives that velvety look as well. It pulls all the attention towards my lips making them the eye candy. This red shade is made for all of us! It will suit you no matter which age group you belong to or which skin tone you have. In fact, this will complement the Indian skin tones very well.
Initially, it looks semi matte with a mild glossy sheen and a lot of creaminess. Yes the shade does not turn completely matte at any point, but settles to a semi matte finish. What I observed is that this shade is more matte than others in the range. It does look like velvet on lips because it looks super smooth and not gritty. What I really liked about the velvet matte range is that we just have one issue with matte lip colours and that is that they turn very dry after a couple of hours and that is where this nailed it. It does not dry out the lips at any point, in fact it keeps the lips moisturised till the time it stays.
It stays for 5 hours on my lips with a lot of talking and munching. If you have a full meal, the intensity will be lost and there will be just a stain left on the lips. After a meal, it bleeds a little from the corners of the lips and somewhere I feel that this shade in particular bleeds a lot more. The colour from the middle portion of the lips goes away. So a touch-up might be needed after 4-5 hours. Overall, I think these are a good deal and I really like using this, but if you want the ultimate matte ones, then this is not for you.
Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11:
• Tiny size makes it travel-friendly
• The packaging is flawless because the see-through packaging makes it very easy to spot the shade for the day and also the wand is perfectly shaped and is of good quality
• Perfectly priced for the quality and the formula
• The shade is a classy and bold deep red which looks very stunning and hot
• Very unique shade to try out if you aren’t comfortable carrying blood red shades
• It creates a vibrant pop on the face which looks very beautiful and makes my skin tone appear brighter too
• It will complement each and every skin tone and is suitable for all age groups
• The consistency is velvety smooth and the pigmentation is super awesome
• It does not settle into fine lines nor does it highlight chapped areas
• It is a semi matte formula, but it does not dry out the lips at any point; it gives good amount of hydration actually
• Stays for 4-5 hours which is good enough at the price
Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11:
• I wish they had some nice names, instead of numbers
• The formula is not completely matte
• It transfers a lot and bleeds more than other shade from the outer corners after a full meal
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11?
Yes, I do recommend this range strongly because these give a bright and a vibrant pop to the pout making the makeup look fresh and glam. I will get some other shades surely if not this. It is a super sexy red to try out this festive season.
