I was recently chosen to receive the Maybelline Vivid Matte VoxBox from Influenster. Influenster is a free program that puts out occasional "VoxBoxes". These are boxes full of complimentary products sent to you to review the items on your blog and/or social media accounts. To qualify for a VoxBox, you need a decent Influenster score and you must be in the demographics selected for that particular VoxBox.
I was really excited about Nude Flush because it's so pretty in the tube but on me, it is an unflattering peach shade. I prefer nude shades that lean more brown than pink or peach. Also, it really accentuates the dryness on your lips. As expected, Rebel Red is a bright red. Sidenote: please excuse the messiness of my lip swatch for Rebel Red, I'm not even sure how that happened.

Overall, I would say the Maybelline Vivid Matte Lip Colors are good but nothing special. I would love to try another neutral shade like Nude Thrill.
These retail for about $8 and can be found at Ulta and anywhere that Maybelline products are sold.
*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
