Entire Collection of Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquid Swatches And Preview
Hello girls. I am super excited cause I grabbed these Vivid Matte Liquids from Maybelline ColorSensational range from Priceline at 50% off. 😉 Isn’t that amazing! 😀 These were launched last year in Australia. They had launched 8 shades initially,but have added few new shades sometime back. I spotted 12 shades in Priceline. However 2 shades were out of stock so I could only pick 10 of them. Thankfully the OOS shades were a grey (Sinful Stone) and a magenta pink (Electric Pink), so I am not missing out on much. 🙂
Coming to the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquids I have, the colors are all amazing and cater to a variety of skin tones and color families. Though these are not launched in India yet, I am hoping they will be adding these to their collection soon.
Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquid Price: 17.95 AUD
These are priced a little lower than the vivid matte lipsticks (19.95 AUD) in Australia and going by the trend I have seen so far, these should be priced around INR 450/- whenever they launch in India.

Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquid Swatches And First Impression :
Packaging: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipcolors have a very sleek square packaging that I personally love. They are really classy to look at. The size is very handy too and being transparent these are easy to locate if you have more than one shade in your stash. However few colors look similar from outside and in that case you will have to refer to the shade name printed on the cap. 🙂
The flat doe foot applicator these liquids have is not one of my favourite to be honest. Takes a lot of effort to apply the colors precisely on my lips, but that’s not entirely the applicator’s fault. More on it later. . .
Texture: The texture of Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids is very creamy. It has a lot of silicone in the formula and I can totally feel it when I smack my lips together. Few shades even feel goopy and keep sliding on lips and are very prone to bleeding. The colors don’t set or dry at all hence prone to transfer. They remain their creamy self till they wear off hence the finish is nothing close to matte. Am not sure why these are named vivid mattes! These are actually lip creams with satin and glossy finish which vary from shade to shade.
Pigmentation: Pigmentation is mostly amazing even with the subtle nudes. However some shades are patchy and some need a couple of swipes to go completely opaque.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick Shades:
The shades have different numbers assigned to the same shades varying from country to country. So don’t get confused if you see 25 as Orange shot here and 30 as orange shot in another country. Thankfully the names are universally same. At least I haven’t come across different shade names assigned to the same colors so far.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 02 Grey Envy:
A greyish mauve pink. It is an unusual shade and would wash out most Indian skin tones. However this can be worked upon by playing around with your makeup. If you like experimenting with your lip colours then you may want to check this out.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 05 Nude Flush:
One of my favourite colours. A medium neutral pink that would suit medium to fair skin tones. This starts out looking too stark but adapts in few seconds to something much more wearable.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 12 Twisted Tulip:
A mauve pink with lilac tones that surprisingly works for my skin tone too. These vivid matte liquids have this amazing feature. The shade may look something totally unwearable, but once in lips they mellow down to a very wearable version of the shade. 🙂
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 25 Orange Shot:
A happy bright Orange that would look good on a variety of skin tones. I can see myself wearing it a lot this coming summer. This has a better formula in terms of opacity and evenness on lips.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 30 Fuchsia Ecstasy:
A red toned fuchsia. I have too many red toned fuchsias with me to really appreciate its beauty, but if you don’t own as many, this can be a wonderful option for you. Cause the colour is gorgeous and perfect for Indian skin tones.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 32 Red Rebel:
A clean bold red. The most pigmented and the smoothest of them all. If I have to recommend just one shade, I will recommend Red Rebel. And I am not being biased because of the colour. It’s because, this is the best in terms of formula, feel on lips, longevity. . . Ticks the right boxes for every single aspect you expect from a lip colour.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 35 Coffee Buzz:
A deep chocolate brown. This is one of my least favorites from the vivid matte liquid range. It does not compliment my face at all. I can make it work by balancing other aspects of my face makeup, but to be frank I am not too keen on such browns.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 40 Berry Boost:
One of my favorites again. 🙂 A berry toned fuchsia that will suit all skin tones. It brightens up my face immediately and is an apt colour for both summer and fall. This is again one of the good shades with nice and smooth formula.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 45 Possessed Plum:
A deep plum with a hint of brown. Looks gorgeous on my complexion. Somehow it does not come out as vampy as it looks in swatch, hence a very wearable shade for those who are not too comfortable with deep plummy hues.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid 50 Nude Thrill:
A peachy nude. It almost looks non existent on my lips after a minute or two. A perfect shade for days you want your eye to do all the talking. Surprisingly I kind of like this color too.

Overall Thoughts on Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids :
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks have an amazing collection of shades to offer. The texture is creamy and very comfortable, however totally not matte. So do not expect these to be your typical matte liquid lipsticks. The formula and opacity is not consistent throughout the range, hence you can not pick shades blindly just because one of them worked amazingly well on you. But don’t you worry. I will be reviewing each of them individually in the coming days so you know which of them are the safest bet for you! 🙂
Do let me know if you want any of these shades to be reviewed on priority.
