Maybelline vivid matte liquid - 05 Nude Flush || Review




The Maybelline vivid matte liquids. Are they matte? Or are they just falsely marketed? We have loved this product for quite a while, yet when a reader commented on our lip collection & swatches post, saying that they were disappointed about this not being as 'matte' as they expected, it got us thinking: are they matte or are they not? Following on from this, I've used this product all week to get a definite feel of it's potential consistency to share with y'all (because you're worth it).

When you think matte, you think drying, uncomfortable and clingy. This product though, is not that. (Not #spon, promise). Your lips won't end up like a camels foot, do not fear. Therefore, I can see how some may see this as not actually being what it says, but we've come to the conclusion that it actually is. Just a creamy matte, more like the NYX Soft Matte lip creme rather than a MAC Ruby Woo. 

Even though previously commenting on this as being completely contrary, we've changed our mind, you just need to stick with it. Originally, I can totally see this as coming across as a gloss rather than a matte, as you can see on the picture on the left. Yet once dried, and left to alter to your lips, it feels more like a light and smooth liquid lipstick; it is by no means an ULTRA MATTE, heavy formula. It does not look like a gloss, but it does give sort of a satiny feeling on the lips, if that makes sense? 


Lasts for hours, feels beautiful, and is a gorgeous colour. Definitely one to give a go.

Have you tried these? What did you think about how mattifying they are?

  1. I LOVE this collection and I know its not matte matte but I don't care mostly because everything else that I have tried was just too drying on me. This is perfect and has been my go to for a few months now :D

  2. Matte or not, the idea of a liquid lipstick being actually NOT drying and having good lasting power gets a firm yes from me. Thank you for the review!

  3. Haven't tried this one but it sounds quite nice. Maybe it's not matte but if it's good lasting and not drying, then I'm up for it! x

    1. Definitely! To be honest I think I prefer the fact that it's not matte, it feels so much nicer to wear. Thanks for the comment <3

  6. I'm not too sure what was going through their minds when they were writing matte on them..maybe they were creating a different product and got the two names mixed up..oo how spooky!

    1. I feel as though this product is a little matte once it dries, but I see where you're coming from!

  10. I agree, the formula is more like the Nyx Soft Creams. I have one shade of the Maybelline liquid lipstick, the orange one and I'm quite disappointed as it applies patchy and doesn't last long at all. The shade you have is beautiful though! x

  11. That's really interesting - I avoided buying these from Maybelline when I was recently pulling together a collection of matte liquid lippies from a comparison post. I'd read reviews saying it was more like a gloss so I passed it by!

    1. Yeah it does have quite a glossy feel, but it definitely does look matte once it has sat for a while. Worth giving a try:)

  15. I do love the colour but I prefer wearing lipstick as it lasts longer. How long did it last for you?

    1. I have to agree I do prefer a lipstick too. I did think this lasts quite a while considering it's price, though; I wore this for my prom where I ate and drank and the colour still lasted at least 3 hours, as I found this to kind of stain my lips, leaving the colour there. You should definitely give it a whirl:)

  22. I love when a matte lipstick is not too dry and feels comfortable on the lips. I have experienced too many dry liquid lipsticks and I cannot wear them at all! This one sounds great, I also love the shade you chose :)

  26. Maybelline products in general are usually hit or miss for me, but these sound like they would be nice. The fact that they're non-drying is especially appealing. Great post!
