Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Grey Envy” Swatch And Review
Another day. Another shade of Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks. 🙂 The shade I have today is my least favorites, but if you belong to the category of women who are always ready to rock ramp perfect shades, this one is for you. So let’s find out more about this greyish mauve lip color, Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Grey Envy”.
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.

My Experience with Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Grey Envy ” :
Grey Envy also has the typical classy rectangular packaging you all have been seeing a lot these days on ETM. 😛 The flat doe foot applicator works kind of okay with this particular shade.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Grey Envy” is a Grey Mauve suitable for fair skin tones. Even though it is a mauve, the grey tone makes me look a little dead to be honest. The color looks more mauvy when swatched on hand, but the grey-ness can not be ignored on lips. I think if you are very fair or if you have pink undertones to your skin, this will come out a lot better. If you have medium skin tone yet you fancy this color, I will say go ahead cause these kind of shades are tricky to find in drugstore brands. It may not be the regular shade you wear, but worth a try if you have a knack for experimental lip colours. And this is way safer than a green or blue. 😉 A muted pink lip pencil underneath does help in making this color a lot more wearable.

The texture is a similar gel cream formula, more like “Nude Flush” . Once you apply it evenly (which takes a bit of effort) it doesn’t feather or bleed. The finish stays glossy sans the shine for a long time.
I get around 2.5 hours of wear out of “Grey Envy” . 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 “Grey Envy” fades uniformly and completely vanishes after a meal. So you need to carry it for touch ups.
Like all the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids, “Grey Envy” also has a weird chemical fragrance. Either I have gone used to the fragrance or it is not strong enough to bother me. I think its the later though!

My Rating: 3 out of 5
My Recommendation: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Grey Envy” is an unusual shade, mauve with a mix of grey is not really something that will look very flattering on Indian skin tone. However, it still can be wearable when paired with complimenting makeup or a lip pencil underneath to balance out the grey tones. Does not make a sense in trying if you want the grey tone to be gone, so depends on your temperament totally.
