Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipstick Review

[UPDATED REVIEW]

This is a review for the Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipstick and I have the shade Mat6 (Maroon Red) which is the darkest red colour in the line. There are 4 other shades in this range, Mat2 (Sugar Pink), Mat 4 (Vivid Coral), Mat5 (Bold Red), and Mat7 (Nude Beige). I would advice deep, warm, Indian skin toned people like myself to avoide Mat2 and Mat7; these two colours will wash you out! I chose this colour because a deep red colour on the lips is a common constitute of classical Indian dance makeup.

This is another picture taken in which I was wearing the lipstick. However, its tiny because this is a cropped picture from a group shot. You can still see that the lipstick is still there. This picture was taken AFTER a performance which attests to its staying power.

Description: It is a long lasting matte lipstick that is devoid of taste and scent. There’s 4.2g of product in it; similar to the other Color Sensational lipsticks. The shade Mat6 is a deep maroon red colour which will flatter many skin tones albeit difference in intensity. It also does not appear completely matte.

Price: Anywhere between MYR 17 to 32 depending on where you buy and factoring in discounts.

Where to buy: Anywhere there’s a Maybelline booth set up; Watsons, Guardian, Caring, Tesco, Aeon…

 

Pros:

It glides on smoothly and does not tug on the lips AT ALL!

Highly HIGHLY pigmented!

VERY opaque; it is a swipe-one-layer-to-get-colour-payoff kind of lipstick.

Long lasting and as you have already seen, it leaves a stain on the lips.

Comfortable on the lips.

Does not emphasize fine lines and dry patches on the lips.

 

Cons:

It is not smudge proof and hence will transfer.

When wearing dark lipsticks that transfer, lipstick stain on the teeth is a highly possible phenomenon, as is with this lipstick.

 

Rating:

8.6/10

I simply LOVE this lipstick! When using it I’ll usually do the suck-a-finger trick to remove excess product from my inner lips to avoid teeth stains!
