|Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid|
These retail for £6.99 each, which I think is the average price nowadays for a drugstore liquid lipstick or gloss. The collection consists of eight wearable shades including,
Nude Thrill - a taupe nude
Nude Flush - a pink nude
Possessed Plum - a deep berry plum
Berry Boost - a vibrant fuchsia
Electric Pink - a serious bright pink
Coral Courage - a neon coral
Orange Shot - a red with an orange undertone
Rebel Red - a true pillar box red
The packaging is lovely and simple so that the colour in the tube does the talking, which I like. The doe foot applicator is long and thin which is great when applying the lipstick as you can outline the lip with the tip and then fill in the rest of the lip with long part of the applicator.

These glide on easily and feel beautifully smooth on the lips. All of the shades are super pigmented and dry matte, but I do recommend applying two thin layers for an even coverage, especially with possessed plum as this is not as pigmented compared to the others and can be a little harder to work with because of the colour. For the pinks, red and deep plum I also suggest applying a lip liner to prevent bleeding out of the lip line, but overall all of the colours look stunning on the lips and three of my favourites are Nude Thrill, Nude Flush and Rebel Red.
These are transferable but the colour still lasts really well until you eat, so just make sure you have one to hand to re-apply after lunch or dinner. Like with most liquid lipsticks, especially the matte formulas these can be super drying on the lips and I often end up with a super wrinkly non-attractive lip look! But because of the lovely consistency of these, they don't feel drying at all on the lips and stay beautifully moisturised throughout the day.
The Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid's are a great addition to the drugstore liquid lipstick market and with a terrific, wearable colour selection, admirable price tag and beautiful colour pay off, these are defiantly worth a look at if you've been wanting to try out a drugstore liquid lipstick.
I award the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks 4.5 out of 5
