My experience with this product:I will be reviewing MAT4 shade from Maybelline color sensational bold matte range. I bought this way back in summers, when it was newly launched. I loved this lipstick very much, i wonder how i forget to review this. As they say, better late than never and this lipstick surely deserve some blog love. So let's zoom in to find out more:
Packaging:This lipstick has an interesting frosty translucent red and mettalic silver color packaging. Details like manufacturing date, shade name is provided on the bottom of the pack. The cap is sturdy and locks in properly making this easy to carry along in purse/bag.
Color:MAT4 is a dark orange red warm undertone color that surely would be loved by red lipstickholics like me :p
Pigmentation and Coverage:The MAT4 shade has a great color pay off. In one sweep you get this gorgeous intense color. In two sweeps this shade gives 100% coverage to lips.
Texture:The lipstick has a creamy, moisturizing texture that glides on the lips smoothly. Feels light on the lips, does not cake up in the lines.
Finish:As the range name suggests, this lipstick gives a matte finish but without the side effects of a matte lipstick,(you know what i mean right?) thanks to its moisturizing quality. The finish is not complete matte, this has a little shine of a moisturizing lipstick but it turns completely matte when you eat something. As it is not transfer proof, so chances are when your lips touch something.., that takes away whatever shine it has and so it becomes completely matte :)
Lasting stay:As said earlier, it s not transfer proof and goes off little every time when you eat, drink or kiss. Thanks to it's great color pay off, even after transferring here and there this can still be seen on the lips very well.. very much there!
This shade MAT4 lasted about 2.5 hour surviving drinks but got wiped off almost from the inner part of the lips. So recheck and retouch is definitely needed. I also love the stain it leaves behind when it is completely worn off. I generally don't prefer stains of lipstick on lips but this one leaves an even stain which looks pretty, so i like it.
Pros:1) Attractive and travel friendly packaging
2) MAT4 is a beautiful orange red color.
3) Does not cake up
4) High on pigmentation
5) Keeps lips moisturized
Cons:1) Lasting stay is average
2) Transfers badly.
Verdict: A beautiful shade!! A must try for red lipstick lovers <3
