Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Twisted Tulip” Swatch And Review
Hello girls. I showed you the swatches of all Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids that I own a while back and have already reviewed 3 shades. . . Nude Flush, Fuchsia Ecstasy and Coffee Buzz to be precise. Today I have a lilac pink that is a very flattering shade for fair skin tones. Let’s find out if Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Twisted Tulip” is a hit or miss .
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 “Twisted Tulip” :
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 more than one lip colours from the range. 🙂 Even though the flat doe foot applicator works fine with most of the shades, it kind of struggles to give even application in case of the lighter shades. Twisted tulip is one of those shades sadly. However the formula evens itself after about 5 minutes, So not a huge con.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Twisted Tulip” is a lilac pink suitable for medium fair to fair skin tone. Most lilacs look horrible on me, but this has enough pink, or rather does not have enough violet in it to clash with my warm undertone, hence works just fine. 🙂 I have actually gone out wearing this shade and I am quite liking the change as I usually don’t wear such colours.

The texture is a similar gel cream formula that I have described in my previous reviews. The consistency is as thick as “Nude Flush” . It moves around the same way Nude Flush does while application, but thankfully does not bleed or feather. Pigmentation is good, but I need a couple of swipes for opaque coverage. Unlike all Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids, Twisted Tulip actually sets into a soft matte finish. 😀 The color looks great mostly due to the finish in my opinion.
I get 3+ hours of wear out of “Twisted Tulip”. 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 “Twisted Tulip” fades uniformly around 2.5 hours and stays like that for most of the day unless you have a meal.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Twisted Tulip” has a bearable chemical scent.

My Rating: 3.75 out of 5
My Recommendation: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid “Twisted Tulip” is a lilac pink that would be most suitable for fair skin tones, however it has enough of pink in it to go well with medium skin as well. The soft matte finish works really well for this shade. Honestly, these kind of shades are not easily available in drugstore brands. If you want to experiment with different shades or have pink undertones, then Twisted tulip can be your pal!
