Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Berry Boost

As much as I'd like to make it my life's mission to try out every liquid lipstick there is out there I wasn't planning to try any of Maybelline's new Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks. But for some reason I decided to swatch them in store one day and I kinda had to have Berry Boost. I walked away but of course I couldn't stop thinking about it so I had head back to get it. So there you go.

The Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid's come in a square shaped tube with a black lid and a see-through lower half so you can see the shade of the lipstick. You unscrew the lid to reveal quite a long doe foot style fluffy applicator. The applicator itself is pretty good and I find it allows quite precise application, although as with any product like this you do need to be careful when applying it. There is a very slight scent to this one but I'm not quite sure what it is. It's not a fruity or vanilla type scent, more like slightly plasticy, but it's very subtle. The shade is a lovely slightly darker red berry shade and as I said I kind of fell in love with it when I swatched it in store. 

I really wanted to love this but the problem I have is that it doesn't actually dry down. When I think of liquid lipsticks I always assume that they dry down to a true matte or at least velvet or satin finish that then can't budge, unless of course they flake off. But this stays liquid and this then means that there is a high potential for accidentally smudging it across my entire face. I also can't really see how a product is matte when it doesn't dry down because this then means it still has a least a little bit of a gloss finish to it. 

So as much as I do like this product I won't be picking up any further shades because I would much prefer if it dries down and effectively 'sets' on the lips.

Have you tried any of the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids?

    1. I'd probably be so happy with it if it dried down (as long as it doesn't flake) but I'm concerned about smudging it without realising! x

  2. I haven't tried any of these yet but I do love the colour. They sound quite similar to the Revlon HD mattes, they dont quite dry down either ( I am a big fan of those though).

    1. I was thinking of trying one of the Revlon HD mattes but if they don't dry down either then I don't think they're the sort of product for me x
