Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick Review

3:23:00 PM

Assalamu'alaikum, 
Hi February :) time flies fast and here I'm in the 1st day in February 2016 *lol. I never get enough of matte lipstick, don't you? :P. I picked this lipstick last year and I though this is new that time. I'm crazy of matte lipstick so why not if I grabbed two velvet matte lipsticks, btw Maybelline Velvet Matte has 12 shades.

Here you go, I picked pale nude which is mat 12 and mat 6 *which I though it's fuschia when I saw at store. If I talked about the packaging, I think it's simple and sleek, I love the transparent tube, so I could notice which shade it's. These made from plastic so you don't need to worry for bringing everywhere or maybe drop it sometimes *kidding. They were definitely fine when I dropped them couples times because I'm such a careless person :P. Honestly, I bought that because the packaging seems interesting, I didn't buy Maybelline creamy matte because they have a packaging as same as others Maybelline lipsticks, I mean the usual Maybelline lipstick packaging *you know what I mean. However, Velvet matte has an applicator like a liquid lipstick. The packaging like the color sensational glosses *cmiiw.

MAT 12 
I like the applicator even the shape isn't slim but flat, I feel this applicator makes this formula applied evenly on my lips. I didn't need brush or finger to apply this lipstick evenly. This color is peach tend to pale. It's paler when it applied in my lips than the swatch. But, I still love it :)

Just comparison with others peach lipsticks. Not to pale but believe me it's paler when I applied on my lips.

MAT 6
To be honest, I'm disappointed with  this shade T,T. It's hot pink not fuschia like when I swatch at store but it wasn't that pretty in my lips. When I used this lipstick, I look a like a sissy *lol and the formula isn't that comfortable :( *I will talk about it later. The packaging and the applicator are fine like MAT 12.

They have 10 shades more to choose. You see the claim they named it velvet matte, but I think those aren't exactly matte, huhu

Let's move on to the formulation, it's creamy and smooth. When I swatch in tiny bit in my hand and spread with my finger is matte, but when I took more, it didn't dry fast and it took a longer time to dry *I mean become a matte finish. I feel it's slightly oily in my lips, it took so long to become really matte, especially  MAT 6, God I haven't feel it would dry as matte finish and I hate it :(. MAT 12 has better formulation as a matte lipstick. I change my mind about matte finish but it's glossy finish and will turn to velvety matte when it run evenly in tiny amount. When you want velvet matte finish maybe you can applied it in thin layer, spread evenly with your finger and wait until it's drying and repeat your steps. However, I'm so sorry I didn't have time to do that. Do they transfer? Yes, those exactly transfer in tissue or glasses when you're drink. However, velvet matte is lightweight, smooth, vivid/pigmented and it didn't make my lips dry. How long it stays? It didn't stay that long because it will transfer into my glass anytime I drink, so the longevity is based on your activity, how many times you drink and eat :D. Maybe I can say that it stays until 3 hours.
I almost forget talk about the smell. The scent is so chemical like crayon, but it isn't that strong. So, If you didn't really smell it, I mean you just applying it without smelling the applicator, even you won't notice it has a smell.
MAT 12 
As you can see it has smooth finish and hardly to say it will turn into velvet matte *lol
MAT 6
You can still notice the glossy shine as well. What do you think about this color? maybe it looks fine on picture but in real it doesn't match with my skin.

I love MAT 12 even it's paler than the swatch, but I look so much younger with this color *lol. My brother said that I look like a college student, hoho. I know I'm crazy of dark plum lipstick right now, so that's why he said that.

I think MAT 6 makes my skin tone bit dull, I'm not sure  but I feel this shade doesn't suit for me. What do you think?
How much? I got them IDR 89000 each
Where you can get them? in every drugstore or Maybelline counter, you can also buy them online at www.sociolla.com. You  also get benefit IDR 50000 off, using UK50 code when you're checkout, with minimum purchase IDR 200000 

The verdict:

Pros
- it has lightweight, smooth, and pigmented texture
- doesn't make my lips dry
- the packaging is travel friendly and the applicator is great
- they have 12 shades that you can choose
- easy to get 
Cons
- it has glossy finish that will turn into velvet matte finish, but I think every shade has different formula. When you're looking for deadly matte lipstick, it isn't what you're looking for.
- it's transfer
- the longevity is so-so

Have you tried it? lemme know at the comment below :)

    kesampaian juga komen di blog ini, dari dulu jadi silent readernya aja :)
    Btw, aku juga baru beli MAT 6, dan cari MAT 12 ga ada di kota aku, sold out terus, padahal matte 12 cakep ya warnanya, cocok buat dipakai ngantor
    aku setuju kalau ini keringnya lama, dibanding bourjois rouge velvet aja lebih lama ini, dan jadi gampang transfer kemana-mana hiks..

  11. I'm not really a fan of matte lipsticks because it always seems to dry out and you can see all the fine lines. But the color of these lipsticks look really good especially the darker shade on you
