Maybelline Vivid Matte Lip Colors* - Review

Welcome to another edition of Frugal Friday!

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.

From Maybelline:
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
A high-impact lip that stands out! Drench your lips in vivid color with a matte finish. Pure pigments collide with a creamy liquid base for a soft, cushiony feel.
WHAT IT IS BEST FOR
  • Glides on smooth to a creamy matte finish
  • 2X the pigments for vivid color
  • Available in a collection of super-saturated shades

The formula of these liquid lipsticks is very velvety and a bit moussey.  They are definitely not transfer or kiss-proof.  In fact, they don't last much past a few sips of a drink in a cup or a few bites of food.  They dry down to a semi-matte on my lips and don't feel dry at all.  They have a floral scent that dissipates a little but even after several minutes I can still catch tiny whiffs of it.

I received the shades Nude Flush and Rebel Red.

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.
