SWATCHES + IMPRESSIONS: Maybelline VIVID Matte Liquid Lip Colours

Took me such a long time to get to, but now we here. 

I've received the entire shade range of these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colours from one of
Maybelline's Blogger Event yonkssss ago.

note: Clumsy me, misplaced the 3 other shades so I can only show you the 5 I have on me!

I remember, when we saw these lip colours, we were ALL so excited. I remember most of us having high hopes that they'll make affordable yet quality matte lip colours like many other brands, such as Colourpop, The Balm, Too Faced and so on.

Sadly, "matte" is the last thing that comes to mind when I think of these products.

(L-R) Electric Pink, Orange Shot, Fuchsia Ecstasy, Berry Boost, Possessed Plum

The formula is very much like a highly-pigmented lip gloss. It sits on top and stays glossy for a good 3-4 hours. Consistency is thin and velvety on the lips. Can glide around sometimes, so therefore, prone to bleeding, smearing and transferring.

With the formula it has, I find that the applicator doesn't really help nor offer a precise application.. It's unusually long and flat.

Won't lie, the shade range is great though. Covers wearable cool-toned and warm-toned shades, although there are only 8 different shades. However in saying so, I think all colours are pretty average. There's not really a stand-out colour for me.


ELECTRIC PINK: A bit more cool-toned on me, but still wearable.

ORANGE SHOT: Listed as orange, but on me and to me, looks more like a bright fire-engine red. Orange-toned, yes.

BERRY BOOST: A pretty and wearable, deeper pink.

FUCHSIA ECSTASY: Easily confused with 'Berry Boost', but diz is warmer.

POSSESSED PLUM: Not too dark, surprisingly. Very wearable! Would be good for those who wants to give dark lippies a first-time go.

All in all, if these products were really matte as marketed.. they'd go OFF! But for what it is... not really a hit for me. (ᗒᗣᗕ)՞

Have you tried this range by Maybelline?
Do you prefer them as is, or would you change the product's formula?
