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 |
- Glides on smoothly
- Lasts well
- Variety of shades
The Bad |
- Can get drying
The Full Slice |
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!
