First Impressions // Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Nude Flush & Electric Pink

Another day, another liquid lipstick. I know I keep going on about them and I am aware that if I continue to purchase them then I will be bordering on the obsessive but who cares? I like em'. Today's post is all about the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Nude Flush and Electric Pink. I first saw these matte lipsticks in America back in Feb and I really wanted to try them but after swatching every single shade on the back of my hand, I wasn't really drawn to any of them so I decided to buy a few from NYX instead. That was 4 months ago and now they have reached the UK, I decided to buy a couple to see how they compare to all of the other matte liquid lipsticks I own and trust me when I say there is a lot to be compared to!

Available in 8 different shades, these Maybelline Matte Liquid Lipsticks come housed in a 8 ml little clear tube which, like all of the other liquid lipsticks I own, has the doe-foot applicator within the twist-up lid. The applicator included with these products is really long and thin compared to the standard doe-foot which is slightly thicker in width. So far I have actually found this applicator slightly easier to use, especially in comparison to the applicator within the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I find to be too wide which causes a messy application.

The shades I purchased were Nude Flush, which is a very pretty and wearable pinky nude and Electric Pink, which is a very bright pink. It is actually brighter in real life than in the photos above so yep, it certainly is electric! I think as pretty as both shades are, they aren't particularly shades which are unique to my ever-expanding make-up collection. I think it would be great to have each of my matte liquid lipsticks swatched against each other as I imagine I have a few dupes in there for the more expensive and pricier matte lipsticks, ie, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and the Kylie Lip Kits.

I am really looking forward to trying these lipsticks out properly and to see how they translate onto the lips as when swatched above, I didn't find them to be very matte at all. In fact, they look a lot like pigmented lip gloss rather than matte lipstick and even after waiting around for the swatches to dry, I didn't find Electric Pink to dry matte at all. This is just a first impressions post so hopefully in a few days I will have some positive things to say about them!



  1. The Nude Flush shade is one of my favourites from the collection, it's such a wearable everyday colour. They certainly aren't as long lasting as other liquid lipsticks, but they are still nice lip products )

  2. I purchased one of these when they first came out and have figured out that they are definitely pigmented glosses. They transferred a little bit too much for me.

    I hope they work out better for you!


  3. Nude Flush looks like a great everyday shade! From what I've heard, these are not really matte.

  4. Great post! It was lovely to hear your first impressions! The colours look so pretty! I can't wait to hear if they turn out to be matte! X

  5. Those are so pretty. Love the pink, but I'm not sure it would suit me.

  6. Pretty shades. I have three of these. These never really dry to matte, these are more of creamy liquid lipsticks. I love creamy liquid lipsticks so I love them. Waiting for the review :)

  8. I've swatched these in store and they didn't seem to dry matte at all! I like the idea of a really pigmented lip gloss so that probably wouldn't bother me much, but it's not a traditional liquid lipstick.


  9. It is so weird that a matte liquid lipstick does not dry at all haha, I havent experienced this before. However, Electric Pink is gorgeous! Matte or not, I love it :)


  10. I have the Nude Flush one, and it does wear quite nicely. It's more of a satin finish than a true matte, and it doesn't dry/set like a traditional liquid lipstick. It also gives you a bit of a lip tingle feeling when it's applied. I'm a fan though!

  11. Picked one of these up and whilst I do like them they don't dry down matte enough for me and find they transfer! I think the Bourjois and Sleek liquid lipsticks are fantastic :) x
