Review-Vivid matte liquid lipstick 

First I have to say I am a hardcore Maybelline fan. Really good quality products with greater price tags! But this product was a total FAIL. The color I’m reviewing is the 05 nude flush!


But let’s start with the good stuff!

  • Beautiful, sturdy packaging
  • Great color selection ( ten honestly lovely shades from nudes to reds and even some extravagant purples)
  • Does not dry your lips at all. On the contrary it’s pretty hydrating!
  • Easy to use applicator that glides on the lips.


Sounds like a dream right? Well…

  • It does NOT dry matte. No matter how thin of a layer you put , no matter how long you wait it will never be completely matte. (Hence the not drying part). In the end I guess we can’t have the best of both worlds.

  • The color is significantly lighter on the lips and it’s not at all buildable.
  • It transfers like crazy and you’ll have to reapplicate every ten freaking minutes.

Even if I could look away from the fact that it’s not matte the formula is still really bad. I will not be repurchasing!

What is your favorite matte lipstick? Do you have better suggestions?
