Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick Review & Swatches

When these first launched I started seeing them all over social media and the commercial on tv as well. 

I was instantly intrigued, a drugstore liquid lipstick?! Yessss!!

So of course I was thrilled to get these from Influenster! 

I received two shades in Nude Flush and Rebel Red.

I like that they included two shades a nice everyday nude and a bold red. 

You know I'm partial to my bold lips so I was most excited about Rebel Red.

The packaging is a standard lipgloss/lipstick tube. It includes a flocked doefoot applicator. 

Nude Flush and Rebel Red

Nude flush is a pinky nude and Rebel Red is a orangey warm red.

While these two shades are opaque, Rebel Red is a bit more sheer in comparison to Nude Flush.

These are named a liquid lipstick but they do not dry down like a long wearing matte liquid lipstick. Because they never "set" they do transfer. If you eat or drink they are going to smear all over everything. 

They do feel very hydrating on the lips and glide on smoothly and opaque. 

I love both shades that I received. I like how they feel on my lips but the one major negative thing for me about them is the smell! 

It is so potent! It just hits my nose hard every time I open the tube! It really is almost headache inducing. 

I've reviewed a lot of products on my blog that are scented and I generally don't have a problem with them. It's just never a big deal to me because usually after application the scent fades away but with these it just lingers! 

It has a really heavy floral scent that I just can't deal with. 

Other than that I do like these. The colors are gorgeous and while they are not long lasting they are very hydrating and comfortable on the lips.

They come in a variety of shades to choose from and are very affordable and easily accessible. 

You can find these are your nearest drugstore for anywhere from $6 to $8. You can also purchase them online at Ulta and Amazon.

I have Nude Flush. I think the reason I hardly wear it is because it does transfer. I'm really into long wearing lipsticks right now. I hate having to keep reapplying my lip color!

I agree! I've become so accustomed to my lipstick lasting throughout the day with typical long wearing liquid lipsticks as well! It makes it hard to go back to a more traditional type of lipstick nowadays!

I wanted to try these but I also want it to last all day. The fact that the you said it has a strong scent kind of not makes me want to try them. Great review!
