In Detail Maybelline Bold Matte Colorsensational Lipstick MAT 5 Bold Red 692 Review and My Experience
Basic but classy packaging. I love how the cap is a long one almost runs through its entire length. The shell is made of a shiny metal material with Maybelline printed over it. Looks really nice. On the top, it has a really shiny surface, almost like a mini mirror which is really cool. The lipstick does close with a slight click, so its pretty much travel safe as well. Overall no complaints with the packaging of the product.
Formula and Texture
The lipstick is sold by name of “Bold Matte” Bold because of the bold colour selection and Matte because its supposed to give a matte look. But, it more feels like a creamy matte texture rather than true matte. The formula is creamy and really nice to apply as it glides easily on the lips. Does not accentuate fine lines. In fact even if you have slightly dry lips, this turns out looking good and hides the dryness. It gives a lovely finish on the lips. Basically is very moisturising on the lips which I really love about this lipstick.
Shade MAT 5 Bold Red 692
I am clearly in love with red lipsticks. This one in particular as the name suggests is a very bold red shade. It is very pigmented however I like to go 2-3 swipes to get the colour of my desire. This has no shimmers in it. It has a good colour pay off. It makes the lips look very supple in fact. I just want to call it a highly pigmented and creamy lip balm instead of a matte lipstick.
The staying power of this lipstick is anywhere between 3 to 4 hours with light meals. This does not qualify for a long wearing lipstick however for a creamy and moisturising formula, I would say the wear time is decent. It fades evenly and leaves a faint tint behind. If the tint bothers you, it can be removed with a good quality make up remover.
Although they claim to be super matte, I guess the shades are not clasically matte in the Bold Matte range. They want to make me call them “Creamy Matte” instead of true matte. They do have a slight glossiness to them. Still matte as compared to non matte lipsticks. I really like the texture of the lipstick which is smooth and glides on easily on the lips. Does not accentuate fine lines. The wearing time is long enough somewhere around 3 to 4 hours which is not bad. Overall pretty happy with the lipstick, however I wish they had chosen a different name for this formula. So if you want to go for a really pigmented creamy red lipstick, you might want to check this out.
