Review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipsticks Part Two

08 January 2017

When we welcomed the new year, I promised myself and the world wide web that I won't purchase a new lipstick until I'm done reviewing every single tube I already have. Yes, a girl can never have too many lipsticks, but this girl does not have a big enough storage room for all of them. If you know me and my love affair with lip colors, then you know how challenging this is for me. On one hand I'm glad to get usage out of all my lipsticks while freeing space as I let go of others, but on the other hand I am praying to the lipstick goddesses that no new can't-be-missed shades or collections are released to the market until I've made a sizeable dent in this undertaking.

Right now I'm just glad for the chance to rediscover old favorites and play with swatches.

What better way to start this habit than by sharing one of my favorite Maybelline collections from late last year? If you remember and if, like me, you liked the Vivid Matte Lipsticks and its bright and bold colors and intense pigmentation, you'll be thrilled to know that Maybelline released new shades under this line!


Maybelline's kits are always something to look forward to. ♥



Vivid 5 • Vivid 6 • Vivid 7 • Vivid 8 • Vivid 13

They're bright, they're bold, they're guaranteed to perk you up!

I love my nudes and my browns and my MLBBs, but my love for bright colored lipsticks is immeasurable. Shocking pink pouts! Plum kissers! Scarlet reds! Gimme all of 'em!

Here are the individual lip swatches (´∀`)♡


Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick in Vivid 5

Vivid 5 is a blue-based red that looks darker on the tube than on the lips. It's not a unique color and I'll be okay with letting this go in favor of my other reds.


Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick in Vivid 6

Vivid 6 is a hot pink that instantly brightens up the face and flatters all skin tones. It will make an excellent gift for your kikay sister or friend.


Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick in Vivid 7

Vivid 7 is a nice candy apple-red that reminds me of those summer days I spent in the visiting carnival that used to go to our little city during fiesta. I like this red better than Vivid 5.


Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick in Vivid 8

Vivid 8 is a loud purple pink that can take you from day to night depending on the eye makeup you pair with it. It's a much better version of my Maybelline Amethyst Ablaze!


Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick in Vivid 13

I didn't expect to like Vivid 13 as much as I did mostly because I thought it would make me look pale or sickly! Instead, it was able to strike the perfect balance and I got the perfect Barbie pink lipstick for me. ♥


Like their older sisters, the new additions to the Maybelline Vivid Matte line are infused with bold saturated pigments plus honey nectar and give a creamier touch and "vividly sensational" color finish. They stay on my lips for four to five hours without eating. I still apply lip balm before putting them on but as you can see on the photos, they did not settle on my lip lines. For only P299 a pop, you can't go wrong with any of these, except perhaps skip Vivid 5 if you already have a similar shade and go for any of the other four instead.

What will be your signature lip color for 2017? Did you even think of choosing one? I change my lip colors depending on my mood so I can't really choose, but it'll definitely be a bright colored lippie for me. After all, my ultimate favorite lipstick is a hot pink hue.
