Hello and welcome back to my thoughts!
Today, I have a new makeup review brought to you by Influenster! If you aren’t familiar with Influenster, Influenster is a website where you can test and review new and exciting products. As an Influenster member, I received the opportunity to try Maybelline’s Color Sensational Matte Metallics lipsticks.
Maybelline’s new matte metallic lipsticks are available in ten different colors. The two colors I received are Smoked Silver and Molten Bronze. My personal favorite, Smoked Silver is a shimmery lavender purple with silver undertones. Molten Bronze is a brownish-red color with silver undertones. I probably wouldn’t have picked these out for myself. But, I’m glad Influenster and Maybelline gave me the opportunity to try something out of my comfort zone. Both of these colors are perfect for fall and winter!
My first impression of these lipsticks was how hydrating they are for matte lipsticks.They glide on smoothly and are very comfortable to wear. However, this comfort may be due to the fact that they aren’t really as “matte” as they claim to be. For matte lipsticks, it sure comes off easily and has to be reapplied within an hour or two of wear. Another downfall is the color payoff isn’t that great. In order to get the true vibrancy of the color, I had to apply a few coats.
Though these lipsticks aren’t very long-lasting, they’re pretty, comfortable to wear, and still make a statement. The bold shades, metallic hues, and affordable price make these lipsticks worth buying. If you’re looking for a gorgeous metallic lip that won’t break your bank, Maybelline’s new collection is for you! They can be found on Amazon and in drug stores & major retailers for just under $10.
