Maybelline color sensational bold matte lipstick mat 3: bright velvet pigment honey nectar
Hello all the beautiful readers of Makeupera. This is my first review you guys and I will try my best to be very honest about the product. I have always been in love with Maybelline lipsticks particularly because of their moisture rich texture and light feel on the lips. After using a lot of moisture extreme lipsticks I have now tried a couple of shades from the Color sensational range.

Packaging of this lipstick is in form of a silver bullet with an Orangish cap. The base of this lipstick is squarish that allows the lipstick to stand on my dressing table. I am a cleanliness freak so, love thing that can be neatly arranged. The cap closes well so, the product is travel friendly.
The texture of the lipstick is creamy and it glides on lips quite comfortably without tugging or pulling

My experience with Maybelline color sensational bold matte lipstick mat 3:
The colour of the lipstick, as is evident from the pictures is of from Orange family. It is a faint Coral Orange shade with a fair amount of pigmentation but not bold as mentioned on the pack so, that ways the name is somewhat misleading. However, on pigmented lips the colour might not show up well as it is more or less sheer. So, in case you have darker lips, you have to coat your lips with some concealer first so that the proper shade of lipstick can show. This shade instantly brightens up my complexion. The staying power is not so cool. It stays on me for an average of 3 hours after which it fades and needs touch ups. I require 3 to 4 swipes to get the proper shade on my lips. The lip stick does not have shimmers and thank god for that. Finish wise, it is a fine balance between glossy and matte.
It feels light and non sticky on my lips. It would not survive meals, though. So, after meals touch ups are definitely needed. Overall, I have no major complains with this product and am fairly happy with it. This lipstick is worth its price quality wise as well as quantity wise.
Whether I would recommend this product again?
Yes, I recommend this product to anyone from fair to wheatish skin tone as I feel they can flaunt it confidently.
