We made it! It’s Friday! YAY!
Today I have four of the five new Maybelline Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick colors. These are their new super, duper extra matte shades with 2x more mattifying powders than their other matte lipsticks – so they say. These are most definitely matte. Stay tuned for my review on the feel below.
Nocturnal Rose is a medium rose pink.
Concrete Jungle is a dark taupe/grey.
Carnal Brown is a light cafe au lait brown.
Smoky Jade is a dark mossy green.
Let’s discuss the formula of these. As I said earlier, these are powder mattes, which is more matte than their other mattes. Does that make sense? I haven’t tried their other mattes, so I cannot compare them. I can say that for me, they definitely tug on my skin quite a bit at first. Once they kind of warm up on the skin, they apply a little more smoothly. They are nicely pigmented though. These are the kind of lipsticks that I would have to wear a lip balm underneath or over since my lips are so dry.
As far as these colors, though, very unique! Loving the “weirder” shades here, especially Concrete Jungle and Smoky Jade.
You can find Maybelline Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick at Ulta, and where ever else Maybelline is sold and they are $7.49 each.
What do you think about these kinds of colors? Do you like that they are expanding the color range into “strange” shades, or would you never wear these?
