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.
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…
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.
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.
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!
