Every high end and drug store brand is launching liquid matte lipsticks in recent times. You can define it a new TREND as these matte liquid lipsticks are fast becoming the favourites of beauties all around the Globe. When you hear the term LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK, you expect two things the most…first is matte finish obviously and second is long staying power. BUT the MAYBELLINE liquid matte lipsticks fails to fulfil both of these criteria. I admit that L’oreal Color Riche L’extraordinaire Matte lipsticks  are also creamy but at least they set into matte finish after a wear time of an hour. Lets jump to the detailed review.

Maybelline’s claim:

This season is all about Mattes! Give your lips a petal smooth finish with Maybelline New York’s New Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks.

We bring to you a Liquid to Matte sensation with New Color Sensational Velvet Matte. This innovative “Liquid to Matte” product is a hydrating cream color that glides on smooth and sets with a matte finish. It comes in 7 trendy colors that are not only designed for long wear but are also lightweight. The velvety, buttery cushion-like texture keeps lips in comfort all day. Here’s your go-to matte lipstick, that will always make you look chic and classy.

My Review:

Color: Maybelline ColorSensational Velvet Matte Lip color Mat 6 is a berry toned lip color.

Packaging: Packaging consists of transparent plastic body and black cap. Below picture will give you a pretty clear idea about how the packaging looks.

Texture/Formula: Viscosity of the texture is so well balanced that it helps the wand to take out right amount of product. The texture is perfectly thick and creamy. Formula is downer though because of non matte properties, I soooo wish it was satiny matte <3

Application: The smooth, thick and creamy texture makes the application very easy even for beginners.

Longevity: Wear time is a turn off as well but that is obvious considering the soft and creamy texture. I had a wear time of 2-3 hours with no meals or snacks in between.

My Verdict: If you are expecting it to be Satiny Matte lipstick, you will be disappointed BIG Time. Other than that it is a good option as a Lip Gloss.

Rating: 2/5.

Faces Ultime Pro Starry matte Lip Crayon-Obsession 03: Review and Swatches

Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip Crayon Obsession 03

MRP: Rs. 799

Faces have recently launched Matte Lip Crayons in 6 Shades and Starry Matte Lip Crayons in 4 shades.

Packaging: I found the Packaging very similar to the Chambor Extreme Matte Long lipcolor which I reviewed here. Faces Ultime Pro Starry Matte Lip Crayon Obsession comes in chubby Crayon packaging with transparent plastic cap, the transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling. All Crayons have the same color coded packaging as that of the bullet/lipstick. Faces has done a commendable job of providing the sharpener with the lip crayon unlike Chambor ones. I had to separately buy the sharpener of worth Rs. 350 for Chambor Lip Crayon.

I was looking for an orange matte shade so tried all the shades from orange family and picked Obsession. Below are the swatches.

Faces Lip Crayon Orange Swatches

Color: Faces Starry Matte Obsession is a very vibrant orange color with shimmer. The Shimmer is very subtle and not over the top. Faces is probably the only brand in Indian Market providing these beautiful glittery shimmers in lipstick/lip crayon. The shimmer can be turn off for few but I loved it totally.

Texture: Texture is soft and not crumbly and lipstick sits very well on the properly moisturised lips. Why I am paying emphasis on moisturised lips because it is very vital to properly cleanse and moisture your lips before applying any matte lipstick. Remember, if the base is clean the finish will be superb.

Application: Faces Starry Matte Obsession glides smoothly on lips and application is very fuss-free if you have smooth and moisturised lips. BUT if you have dry and chapped lips don’t even think of applying this beautiful lip color, you will ruin the end result.

Opacity: It is very opaque, one swipe provides the full color coverage.

Longevity: I wore it to the office and it stayed on me for 6-7 hours with slight fading around the corner of the mouth.

My Verdict: Personally I loved the color and texture of the lipstick. I understand people with severe dry lips will not find it too favourable but then that is the case with all matte lipstick. The faint hint of shimmer provides the enough drama to create a visually appealing look. I Recommend it!!

Rating: 4.5/5
