Review: Maybelline New York Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

Hi everyone!

It’s Wednesday, which for all my stay at him moms means absolutely nothing. πŸ˜‚ But, if you’re a working girl, it’s hump day! You’re half way through the week and almost to the weekend. There’s no better time to check out a product review, than the present! πŸ˜‰

I bought two of these Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks, from Maybelline at Walgreens. They were a decent price & I’m obsessed with matte lips at the moment so I totally wanted to try it.

Unfortunately, I am not a fan.

First impression, I liked it. It has a smell that is light and enjoyable. The color is pretty and pigmented. It’s not too thick sticky. The wand was a decent size, not too small or large but it is kind of an odd shape.

When I put it on, I found it kind of annoying to manage how much product was coming off the wand and hard to apply it only where I wanted it. I fumbled with the wand a bit. After it was applied, it looked ok. I went out and while I was running errands, it bled out of my lips and onto my face. I looked like Bozo the clown! πŸ˜‚

I had a very hard time keeping this lipstick in place and after it did get on my skin, it was a pain to remove. It stained my skin until I could remove it at home. The best I could do while I was out is cover the stain on my skin with foundation.

The top photo here shows the product bleeding immediately after application.

The second shows how hard it is to apply 1 good layer. You see how quickly theres no product left on the wand?

The third shows how easily I was able to smudge it after 10 minutes with just a quick light passing of my other hand.

The 4th shows how hard it is to get it off my skin. This is after scrubbing with one wipe. I just find it so odd that it’s so hard to get off of my skin and pretty much acts as a stain (it is not a lipstain) but when it’s on my lips there’s absolutely no staying power.

So, with all of that being said I would give this 2 out of 5 hearts. I like the colors and I think if the formula was fine-tuned it could be good. If i had this in the bottom of my purse while I was out and about and really needed a quick touch up on my lips I might use this. However as it stands I will not be buying this again.

Final:

  2. I have been eyeing these for a while now because I’ve heard great things about the pigmentation and staying power. I might reconsider if it bleeds easily. I doubt it would look good when I’m out and about with smeared lipstick! Thanks for the post! Excited to see more product reviews! πŸ™‚ xx – Kavi
