Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” Swatch And Review
I am back with another shade from the vivid matte liquid range. 😀 I showed you all 10 Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids that I own a while back and today I have the only brown from the range. So without much ado, let’s get to know Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” better.
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.
What Maybelline Claims:
Drench your lips in vivid color with a matte finish. 2X the pigments for intense color. Color Sensational® Vivid Matte Liquid™. Rich, intense lip color that glides on smooth to a matte finish. Drench your lips in vivid color. Pure pigments collide with a creamy liquid base for a soft, cushiony feel. The result? A high-impact lip that stands out! Available in a collection of intense shades.
Application Tips: Step 1. Apply lip lacquer with the applicator wand in the center of your upper lip and follow along the contours of your mouth. Step 2. Glide the lip gloss across the entire bottom lip.
DIMETHICONE BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2 DIISOSTEARYL MALATE DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE PHENYL TRIMETHICONE KAOLIN HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER ISOSTEARYL ISOSTEARATE POLYETHYLENE VINYL DIMETHICONE/METHICONE SILSESQUIOXANE CROSSPOLYMER NYLON-12 PENTYLENE GLYCOL
My Experience with Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz ” :
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids come packaged in a sleek, stylish rectangular packaging that’s easy to carry and travel with. The transparent body works well if you have many from the range. 🙂 The flat doe foot applicator coats lips evenly and works well with this shade unlike most of the lighter neutral shades.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” is a Chocolate brown suitable for all skin tones, however it will look it’s best on medium and dusky skin tones IMO. This colour leans towards being a little vampy, so lighter skin tones need to play around accordingly. Personally I like my browns with either a little peach or red tone and this has none.

The texture is a similar gel cream formula that I have described in my previous reviews. The consistency is thicker than “Fuchsia Ecstasy” and thinner than “Nude Flush” . Coffee Buzz does have a tendency to feather around lip corners. So it’s a good idea to use a lip liner before proceeding with this colour. Pigmentation is good, but I need a couple of swipes for opaque coverage. Like all Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids, Coffee Buzz doesn’t set into a matte finish. It sets into a satin finish.
I get 3+ hours of longevity out of this shade. It also depends on how soon you eat or drink. When given a while to set before munching anything, the colours in this range tend to last longer. Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” stays fresh for 2.5 hrs after which I see the colour fading uniformly into a semi opaque coverage. After lunch I can see it fading even more from the centre. At that point, it does not look nice at all and a touch up is needed immediately.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” has a faint chemical fragrance that can be easily ignored.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5
My Recommendation: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Coffee Buzz” is a deep chocolate brown that will suit most Indian skin tones. If you like wearing browns then you can give this a try, however there are better options available in Maybelline as well as other brands in the brown color family. So this is not a must try!
