Other Locations: Available in all leading department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets

THE VERDICT:

Feelin' a bit under the weather lately, not to mention I'm kinda' stressed just because...holiday deadlines! Good thing I've a couple of new lippies to play with (And swatch for you guys!) to take my mind off work and to help me relax; makeup is always fun and play for me, therefore it is one of my top stress relievers. 

I recently received a set of Maybelline's new Mat Velvet Lipstick for review; Now let's swatch these.

MAYBELLINE MAT VELVET LIPSTICK IN DETAIL

According to Maybelline, Mat Velvet is a revolutionary matte lipstick as it yields none of the dryness, heaviness, and waxiness of traditional matte lipstick.

The whole packaging is similar to Maybelline Lip Polish; this is just the sexier, sultrier sister.

MAYBELLINE MAT VELVET LIPSTICK IN DETAIL

Mat 12

- a beige-peach shade.

Mat 12 is a crowd favorite-a lot of my followers on Instagram (@thebeautyjunkee) gushed about this shade when I uploaded these lippies on my page; What's not to love? It's an MLBB/Nude shade that looks pretty good on Filipina skin tone!

Mat 1

- A watermelon Pink shade.

This summery Pink hue will come handy in the next few months to some. It's a pretty shade, but I just don't dig tropical pinks too much. :p

Mat 10

- A cool, midtone Pink with a hint of violet.

Now this shade is a more warm skin tone- friendly version of Mat 1, thanks to the Violet undertone. Violet is really a great neutralizer.

Mat 6

- A berry shade.

One of my favorite shades in the bunch. It's such a wearable fall shade that's great for daytime!

Mat 9

- A red orange shade.

Red-Orange shades are great, but I find them a bit ho-hum already.

Mat 2

- A bright Coral-Pink shade.

Off topic: Oh hi there, puffy cheeks. Gosh, can I just  share that I'm suffering from swollen lower gums here, hence the puffiness. Trying my best to not look it in the photo! :D

Mat 11

- A bright, true red.

Ooh, what a lovely true red! Another favorite of mine from this collection. It's one of the super nice drugstore reds I've seen so I would recommend that you get it for yourself (that is, if you're into reds. But who doesn't like Red!??!).

Mat 8

- A hot orange shade.

If you're looking for a vintage orange lipstick without hurting your wallet, this is an option!

These lipsticks have excellent pigmentation and are very moisturizing, no doubt about that. However, I have a problem with the matte claim. You see, when I read matte, in my head, it's bold, shine- free or at least, demi-matte; the boldness is there, but it didn't quite pass even the demi-matte mark; it goes on glossy in the beginning and when I allowed it to dry for at least 20 minutes, final finish was satin.; staying power is okay. Still and all, it is a pretty good lipstick because of its superb pigmentation and moisturizing finish; just don't think of it as a matte lipstick, but as a regular liquid lipstick; this one's going to be the best friend of dry lips!

12 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Mat 12 for the win! It's been sold out for so long now, I'm not sure if they have been restocked.

  3. Maybelline released pretty colors again! Moisturize lips for ber months! However, I would go with Ann this time, I hope it's really a matte one. :)

  5. They're most definitely NOT matte! Not at all. I hate how they claim these are matte. The colors and pigmentation are good, though! They're on sale for P250 until December 31, I believe.

  7. I tried swatching a couple of shades and yes, they are not matte. The first shade that i looked for was MAT12 but the SA said that they don't have a tester for that shade. I guess MAT 12 is the most popular and saleable shade of this collection.

  8. Mat11 and 12 are such a steal! Though most of the shades are little bit the same with the Maybelline Rebel collection. still I would love to try this one.

  9. My sister was pretty bummed that it wasn't "matte" like it's a little hard to remove kinda matte. Still the shades are pretty..

  10. I agree! i was like, "parang di naman matte" when i saw the first photo. I didn't expect there would be 'shine' once you apply them.

    Still, the colors look great! I like the pinks and the oranges. I can't pick a specific shade because I like them all! Hehe

  11. They all look so good I can't choose just one!

  12. Same as with the bold matte collection, this isn't that matte. :/ Though the shades are so pretty, and it's affordable. So okay pa din. I love Mat 2, 6 and 11! :)
