I’ll be the first to say that I was never the biggest fan of drugstore lipsticks. A few years ago when I first started getting into makeup, drugstore lipsticks weren’t that great. They were usually very sheer/glossy and I was, and still am, interested in more pigmented matte lipsticks.

But, I’ll also be the first to admit that I am in love with the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks since the formula is just amazing and they don’t have that potent crayon scent, which was a big deterrent for me.

The Good |

  • Creamy
  • Matte
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Lasts well
  • Inexpensive
  • Variety of shades

The Bad |

  • Can get drying

The Full Slice |

I have the shades Daringly Nude, Clay Crush, Nude Nuance, and Touch of Spice. All 4 shades fall in the nude-ish category because I love me some nudes.. lipstick that is!

The formula is very pigmented and creamy, yet matte. I honestly even prefer this formula over some matte MAC lipsticks. Since they’re more on the creamy matte side, they don’t pull or tug on your lips nor do they over accentuate dryness– something I’m thankful for since we’re heading into winter and my lips can get pretty chapped if I don’t take care of them.

Although they are creamy, I find that after a few hours these can get drying (granted, I do have naturally dry lips), but that’s expected since they’re technically still matte lipsticks. These do last pretty well considering they are pretty creamy. On me, they last anywhere from 4-5 1/2 hours, but that comes down to what/how much you’re eating and drinking.

I really hope Maybelline releases more shades– granted, they have 20 shades in this collection– because I want more of them, but the other colors just don’t really speak to me, which is why I only have 4. However, that’s just a personal dilemma and I’m sure they’ll have more shades you might be interested in!

The Verdict |

These lipsticks are really great quality and are definitely worth the price, which varies anywhere from around $6-$8 depending where you buy them from. I’m honestly really happily surprised by how great these lipsticks are, and recommend them 100% to everyone!

  • I love this lipstick! Daringly Nude is my favorite!

  • These are my favorite lipsticks from the drugstore! You should get Lust for Blush and Divine Wine next just so you add some color to your collection :) Oh and the collection actually has 20 shades you just need to hunt them down.

    • I know, these 4 were just the only ones that I really wanted. The only other one that kind of appeals to me is Lust for Blush.

  • I still haven’t tried these! I don’t know what’s wrong with me I always forget to pick one up when I’m in the drugstore! Gorgeous swatches!

    • Haha hopefully you try them out soon! I always have to try and avoid the makeup section while at Target lol

  • I love the creamy matte range, such a lovely formula! I’ve only got one (can’t remember what shade) but I really want to pick up some more!

  • I agree that these can definitely be a little drying (pretty much everything is on my lips though haha :) ) but I love all the shades! Touch of Spice is so gorgeous!

    • Everything is dry on my lips too lol, but they’re not as drying as some matte lipsticks I’ve tried!

  • I still haven’t tried any from this range. It is really hard to find a good matte lipstick in the drugstore so I should check them out!

    • Definitely! These are the only matte lipsticks I could find that I really like from the drugstore.

  • These aren’t available in Australia yet, we are so behind! But they sound fantastic and I love the nude shades you picked! xx

    These lipsticks look so pretty. Being Australian means you’re automatically behind when it comes to the release of new beauty products, i can’t wait till these get here.

  • I actually want all Matte lippies form Maybelline :)
