Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor Velvet Matte review (Mat 5)

I love lipsticks, but I hate lipgloss. Coincidentally today’s product looks exactly like a lipgloss. BUT it’s not a lipgloss lipgloss, it’s a velvety matte lipgloss.

I just dun have a thing for glossy finish, if you ask me I will choose matte anytime. I just dun have a thing for glossy finish, if you ask me I will choose matte anytime.

I was walking around Guardian the previous weekend and I thought I saw something new. I have been trying very hard to avoid looking at makeups because your girl here need to control her spending you know! But when I saw this I know I had to buy it. One because it’s an interesting product, second because it’s advertised by GIGI HADID!

She’s my favourite model right now. (im always changing)

Oh another thing it was on sale, I guess the timing was quite right so I decided to just buy it!

I wanted to get MAT 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 and ended up getting MAT 5 because I only got one orange lippie and all the others are reddish or pinkish tones.

It appears to be very bright when I swatched on my hand though, but Gigi was the one who push me to buy. Cos she is wearing the same one for her ad. LOL! I thought she looked natural so why not?

I know it looks super bright here. But when I applied on my lips, it does settles in and I look pretty natural with it.

I was quite worried that it will be another lipgloss with glossy finish, but after applying it I really like how it looks and feels on my lips. It is lightweight and ends with a smooth and matte finish. πŸ˜€ I did some research about this product and got to know that the hydrating formula here helps to keep the lips hydrated, non sticky and non chalky the whole day.

I agree with this as my lips did not crack and does not appear to be dry at all.

This is how my lips looked like with MAT 5. sorry if it looks too smooth here. LOL

It doesn’t look very bright right? It’s a very nice bloody orange color and it sorts of perk up your whole face as well.

Most of the times I go to work with only eyebrows drawn, this really helps me to look more like a human.
I’m thinking of getting MAT 2 next (and of course maybe more), will post here once I get them it! πŸ˜›

I really love this product and if you try it I will be happy too. πŸ™‚ If I’m not wrong the retail price should be $21.90.
