Hello Ladies, am super excited to try the Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick, so got 3 shades in this line. Here’s the first one. The shade name is Mat 6. I really wish they would come up with a creative name instead of these boring numbers. However, the performance of this product compensates for the distasteful name. On with the review…. I have been using this lippy for almost 3-4 months now. I know it’s late. God!!, the amount of procrastination by me is ridiculous.
Enough ranting, read on to find out what I think of this one.
What Maybelline Claims:

Here’s your go-to matte lipstick, that will always make you look chic and classy.
My Thoughts on it:
I have a love-hate relationship with Maybelline. This is because, when I buy two products, say lip glosses from the same line, they behave completely different from each other. It could be the pigmentation, consistency, etc. Usually, this puts me off, but with this line, I’m more than happy and am totally happy with the Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick.
The name is bit confusing, as it comes in a tube-like packaging but is called a lipstick. Lipstick or lip gloss, I love the packaging, especially the matte finish square black cap. The packaging is cute and small enough to sneak it in your bag or even a clutch. A mirror on the side would have completely sold the deal. Maybelline, please take note of this.
The product mentions that its ‘matte’, but I don’t see that. It gives a satin-ey finish, which I like a lot. It’s good that it’s not matte, as they always dry out my lips like crazy.
I love the doe-foot applicator. It does a pretty good job of applying evenly on the lips. The consistent of the lip gloss/ lipstick is thick, so a little goes a long way. It is best to start with little and build up if necessary.
The velvet matte finish is awesome and my lips look sexy wearing it. It hides the lines well enough to give an almost smooth finish.
Now, about the shade, let me see if I can explain it well.(I know I suck at that). It is a plum shade, leaning more to berry shade. This is not an over-the-top kinda shade and looks good on my dusky skin. I personally feel that this shade will look good on anyone. It is not overtly bright and adds color to my face.
The wear time for this lip gloss/ lipstick is about 3-4 hours. It leaves a nice pigment after munching on food and drinking. I really like this in a lippy as I don’t want my lips to be stark naked after eating something.
- Hydrates the lips.
- Cute and sturdy packaging.
- Universal shade – Will compliment everyone.
- Brightens the face.
- Sexy velvet finish
- Gives a smooth finish to the lips.
- It’s not matte. I love the satin-ey finish instead of the moisture-zapping matte ones.
- Uggh!! The names…
- Not-so-strong staying power. (Not poor either)
Seriously, there is not much to complain about the Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick. I love this line and am interested to try the remaining 4 as well.
Hope you liked the review, Ladies. Feel free share your experience/thoughts on this product.
