Hello make-up junkies,
A few days ago I introduced you guys to the all new range of Maybelline that is the Velvet Matte range! These are super fun to use and I am totally into these currently because they work really well for me. I picked up the most demanded shade first to review for you guys and it is “MAT 6”. So here is the treat coming up!
Price: Rs 475

My Experience with Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte Mat 6:
Maybelline mostly had glossy and creamy ranges and I am so happy 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 compliments the bottle. These look very cute and being so tiny, they can be easily carried in the pocket, clutch, handbag or 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 it this way? Wouldn’t some cute names have been better and less confusing? Anyways, we have to bear with the series named.
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 6” is a beautiful berry shade with perfect hints of mauve and pink blended together. It is a pretty pinkish plum shade which adds elegance and sophistication the moment we apply it. I have not really been into berry shades but I have to say these are a must in the vanity. This shade gives an instant perfect pout which I can flaunt all day. This stunning berry shade adds brightness and spice to my make-up making it look glamorous. It makes my skin-tone appear brighter and pulls all the attention towards my lips. This particular shade is made for all of us! It will suit you no matter which age group do you belong to or what skin-tone you have.
In fact this will compliment the Indian skin-tone 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. 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 they turn very dry after a couple of hours and that is where this range 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 4-5 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 the colour from the middle portion of the lips goes off. 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 these are not for you.
Pros of Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte Mat 6:
• Tiny size which 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 good in quality.
• Perfectly priced for the quality and the formula.
• The shade is a beautiful berry shade with a perfect blend of mauve and pink which makes it look better than ever.
• It creates a vibrant pop on the face which looks very classy and makes my skin-tone appear brighter too.
• It will compliment each and every skin-tone and is suitable for all the age groups.
• The consistency is velvety smooth and the pigmentation is super awesome.
• It does not settle in fine lines nor does it highlight the 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 that price.
Cons of Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte Mat 6:
• I wish they had some nice name.
• The formula is not completely matte.
• It transfers a lot and bleeds from the outer corners after a full meal.
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
Will I Repurchase/Recommend Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Mat 6?
Yes, I do recommend this range strongly because it gives a bright and a vibrant pop to the pout making the make-up look fresh and glam. I will get some other shades surely if not this!
I loved these cute little velvet mattes from Maybelline! I love how nicely Maybelline innovates and offers us all their amazing products! Way to go Maybelline.
