Oh my, it’s March already! Art season is still in the air so I am still busy at SIAMESE that I almost forgot about my backlogs. My sister got sick as well last month so I had to accompany her every now and then for her check up. That means I had to skip a couple of events including Maybelline’s Powder Matte Lipstick launch. But don’t worry, the Maybelline Angels heard my cry and also sent a kit for me so I could still share with you my thoughts and initial review on this latest product.
So last month, Maybelline finally unveiled Powder Matte Lipsticks by Color Sensational. These lipsticks give a powdery, matte finish yet they moisturize lips at the same time.
The packaging is very similar to Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick. I mean, the matte cap. You’ll easily get confused if you don’t read labels.
But why do I love this lipstick? It glides smoothly on the lips so it’s very easy to apply. It’s surprisingly weightless so you won’t even feel that you’re actually wearing lipstick. Yes, I used to hate that warm creamy feeling of lipstcks! With the ultra lightweight formula, I think this is so comfortable to wear and perfect for everyday use.
There are 15 shades available ranging from nudes to pinks, reds and even plums. I got one of the bests from each range: Mauve It Up, Touch of Nude, Noir Red, Make Me Blush and Plum Perfection.
Here’s a one-swipe swatch for each shade:
I think I fell in love with Mauve It Up shade!
Have you tried the Powder Mattes already? Which shade is your favorite?
