I love the soft feel of velvet, therefore as soon as I noticed the Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks on Nykaa, I added one to my cart. I went for the shade Flaming Fuchsia (MAT10), which in my opinion is a gorgeous tulip pink shade. The formula, however, is another story altogether.
The texture of this product is light and smooth. It glides on the lips to provide a satin finish that does have a unique softness to it, doing complete justice to the Velvet in the name. It is very hydrating but tends to slide around on the lips. It does last for around five hours but you will notice that it collects inside the creases and gives a very patchy finish. The pigmentation is pretty good but not completely opaque, and a few imperfections are visible through the color. Reapplication is also a little difficult due to the slippery nature of the formula.
Personally, I am not a huge fan of the formula because it gives an uneven finish. However, if you are able to look past that then the color is extremely stunning and you will enjoy the texture of this product. Priced at INR 475, the product comes in a cute 5ml packaging with a doe foot applicator. If you want a moisturizing lip color that has a semi-matte finish then you can buy this one but if you want a perfect matte liquid lipstick then give this one a pass.
I hope this review was helpful. You can buy this lip color here.
