My take on the Maybelline Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick in “Up To Date”-
Packaging: Unlike the creamy matte which comes in mauvish brown cap, this one comes in dark maroon cap and inside silver color bullet. This is color coded at the end so in case you have more than one you can find easily. This shuts with a click which makes this a travel friendly product.
Texture: Coming to the texture this lipstick lends an ultra matte finish which looks so glamorous and stunning that you will immediately fall for it I bet. Though this lipstick is matte but it’s not drying like the MAC lipsticks these give you a smooth texture. This lipstick glides on lips effortlessly and are super light on lips. I have so many matte lipsticks from different brands but trust me this is the most comfortable matte, it doesn’t settle in fine lines, never becomes flaky, and doesn’t transfer. Best part it is water proof.
Shade: This shade is a bright actually hot pink which will flatter every skin tone no matter if you are dusky or fair it will suit all tones. I am impressed by the shade.
Pigmentation: If you are do not have lip pigmentation, one-two swipes is enough to get full color with intensity and if you have pigmented lips only two-three swipes are enough to get full color with full intensity.
Staying power: It stayed on me for more than 6 hours and after that also faded only from center after having heavy meals and left a dark stain which lasted for 2 more hours after which I removed with remover. So, I have completely fallen for this it stayed for 8+ hours so perfect office lipstick. No touch ups needed full day you will look picture perfect.

I am in love, I don’t mind ditching other lippies in my stash for these from shade to texture, to staying power everything is perfect. This, Maybelline powdery matte lipsticks are better than the high end lippies that cost 1000-1800rs and still dry your lips badly. It is cheap for the quality it comes, try it yourself and you will agree with me. Maybelline has NAILED with these ultimate matte range.I will try different shades, for sure will buy and it’s highly recommended! If you don’t have this Maybelline Color Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick in “Up To Date” your collection of matte lipsticks is incomplete!
