Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick | Review & Swatch

Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick

Hi there Beautiful, doing well? In this post, I’ll be talking about Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick. They are quite new in Maybelline yet here in the market for 2/3 months now. When I first got them in hand I thought it will be like other typical liquid lipstick but no they are not. Let me explain you why within a few.


Maybelline says:

A liquid lip color which creates a liquid-to-matte sensation while providing petal smooth comfort.

I have two shade here to talk about, shade 2 and 12 (I really wish they had a name than the number).
Shade 2 is a pink shade, almost a bright baby pink, depending on lips pigmentation it might come darker. Shade 12 is a warm nude shade, the hue is deep and subtle enough to go with any skin tone, perfect for everyday wear.

First of all, I love their packaging. They are classic, high-quality plastic yet glass like square tube comes with soft doe foot applicator. Shades of the product and the color on tube might vary a bit, but it is possible to determine what shade is inside. No funky smell but the product has a nice cooling smell in it.

It says it is matte(velvet) but I find it quite glossy, the shine tones down slightly over the time but they don’t go matte ever. There I understand why Maybelline says ‘cream-to-matte formula that promises you hydration’. Yet again whenever I wear it I feel, “it says it’s matte, it’s not turning matte!”


However, Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick has decent pigmentation though it varies on the shade. I find my shade 12 appears more pigmented than the shade 2. Upon application, the feels exactly like a gloss but more pigmented and not sticky or tacky like a normal gloss would feel. They glide on smoothly, gives even pigmentation on the lip, no patchiness or else, doesn’t settle into lip lines, extremely hydrating, but they are not transfer-proof.

As because they aren’t transfer-proof and doesn’t have that regular matte lipstick nature, their wear time is low, around 2-3 hours, kinda like a lipgloss. Although there is some kinda soothing smell but that’s is not noticeable upon use.
Overall, Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks are definitely not a matte lip product but a lipstick in a liquid form. They are very comfortable/ lightweight to wear and gives decent pigmentation. They work wonder as a topper, you can wear them on top of any other lipstick of similar shader to retain hydration or top of a different shade to create another shade.

If you are not a fan of discomfort all those regular matte lipstick gives then Maybelline Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick is for you.

    I thought they might be similar to Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick but it doesn’t look a like but still they looks good as lip gloss.

    i love their color-sensational-creamy-matte lipsticks very much….the pigmentation & color payoff is like high-end….but had high expectation for the liquid ones too….hope they will improve the formula in future…. :(

      ha ha ha exactly that’s how I felt at my first thought. It could’ve been so nice to get a regular liquid matte lipstick from Maybelline.
