When it comes to lipsticks I tend to be a little bit of an “outfit repeater” or I guess “lipstick repeater” in this case. I have a pretty ridiculous collection of lipsticks but on the day to day I tend to reach for the same few over and over again. At least 50 percent of the time I find myself reaching for one of my Maybelline Colour Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks.
Maybelline completely changed the drugstore lipstick market with the introduction of their Creamy Matte lipsticks. They showed that is wasn’t necessary for a matte lipstick to be dry, uncomfortable and stiff but that they could be creamy, comfortable and buttery smooth. I immediately fell in love with the formula and quickly built up a healthy collection to include my absolute favourite go to lipsticks. When I found out that Maybelline would be releasing 8 new limited edition shades just for the holidays I gave myself a mission to hunt them down!
I was able to get my hands on 5 of the new shades and they are just as amazing as the original but for a little recap on the formula here is some information from my original review (which you can read here).
Each lipstick is created with a base of pure pigments for intense colour and three precious oils that help them to glide smoothly across the lips without tugging or patchiness. Those pigments mean that every shade is opaque in one swipe and will become even bolder and more saturated when built up in thin layers. While they are not moisturizing they are really quite comfortable as they sit lightly on the lips without any tightening or cracking. They actually last a good 5-6 hours at complete intensity – through drinking tea and eating lunch – before fading evenly so you don’t get that dreaded ring around the outside of your lips.
Overall, the newest releases in the Creamy Matte line are gorgeously creamy, super smooth lipsticks that apply in quick even swipes and set to a velvety matte finish that doesn’t look or feel dry. They are intensely pigmented and completely opaque and they come in a range of stunning shades.
The newest shades that I have are Rich Ruby ( a stunning deep red), Electric Pink ( an ultra bold hot pink), Blushing Pout ( a dusty mauve), Nude Nuance ( a warm red brown), and Clay Crush ( a warm deep nude).
I am absolutely in love with the new shades, Rich Ruby is the perfect sultry holiday red, Blushing Pout is the perfect mauve shade that everyone is obsessed with right now and Nude Nuance and Clay Crush are stunning browny nudes.
I still think the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks are the best of the best when it comes to matte lipsticks and it just seems like they keep getting better. If you haven’t tried the original line then I highly suggest you go try Touch Of Spice, Daringly Nude or Lust to Blush. If you are already a fan then run out to your local drugstore and try to find some of the new limited edition holiday collection!
The Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks retail for $10.99 CAD and can be found at your local drugstore or cosmetic retailer for a limited time!
