Hi Beauties!

How are you all doing? Well I am doing pretty good, have done loads of shopping this weekend, huge discounts and offers are going on Pantaloons, I couldn’t resist myself and bought some clothing for me and my mom. J So yes obviously it was a happy weekend for me! :-P Today I am here to review two lipstick shades from Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Lipstick in ‘Violet Pink’ and ‘Scarlet Red’.  

Let’s jump into the review now

What the product claims:

A single swipe can’t hide pigmented lips but two or more swipes are more than enough to achieve the actual bright color with good coverage.

Staying power:

It has decent staying power as it can stay up to 4 to 5 hours, afterthat it starts fading and leaves a prominent stain behind.

My take on the product:

Swatches on 'Scarlet Red' and Violet Pink'

Lipstick comes in a red outer sturdy plastic cover with black inner part which holds the lipstick bullet and carries the brand name. Shades are mentioned in the bottom of the packaging. I love the unique packaging which is quite handy. Now coming to the texture, lipstick is very smooth, glides on my lips easily without any hassle. It is very light weighted which feels like really light on your lips after application. It is little creamy in nature and you will feel a semi matte effect immediate after application but after sometime it settle down into a perfect matte finish look as desired. Initially you will not feel any dryness but after an hour or so it will start little crumbling over your lips, making the application uneven or settles into fine lines. So my friends with very dry lips need proper moisturisation to avoid flakiness or patches. it has good pigmentation, two or three swipes are enough to get the desired bright color with good coverage. It has the wear time of almost 4 to 5 hours with little fading after meals and leaves a strong stain behind and you need a makeup remover to remove it. This range comes with four shades and I have got two of them, ‘Violet Pink’ is a pretty gorgeous hot pink shade with violet undertones, ‘Scarlet Red’ is a beautiful bright red with orange undertones which can be the perfect shade for parties, weddings etc. I think both shades are suitable for every Indian skin tones.


·         Handy cute packaging
·         Creamy smooth texture which glides easily on lips
·         Good pigmentation, two three swipes are enough to get full coverage
·         Decent staying power
·         Gives the desired perfect matte finish look
·         Beautiful shades suitable for every Indian skin tones.
·         Budget friendly


·         Little drying and makes application uneven after sometime of application


Overall, a perfect matte finish lipstick range within this price range, creamy in texture which glides with less effort, good pigmentation and decent wear time. Both of the shades are pretty wearable and suitable for almost every Indian complexion. I would like to recommend these shades to all my matte lover ladies to try for.



That’s all for today darlings!
