Maybelline creamy mattes

Hello! For today's post I wanted to share with you the new Maybelline Colour Sensational: The Creamy Mattes. I absolutely loooove matte lipstick, seriously I'm addicted... The collection includes 3 red shades; 'divine wine', 'siren in scarlett' and 'craving coral', 2 pink shades; 'magnetic magenta' and 'rose rush' and also 1 nude shade 'nude embrace'. I got divine wine and nude embrace, all the other shades are quite bold and bright so not really my thing.

So what do I think? From the swatches above you can tell the lipsticks have good pigmentation and one layer provides great coverage. It's not patchy and the application is easy enough as the texture is lovely and soft, this is because it is a 'creamy matte'. Under normal light it does look more or less matte, but under the flash there is a sheen. On the packaging it does just say 'matte', which could be a little misleading. Saying that, you can easily fix this and make it appear more matte by simply blotting your lips with tissue after applying. 

I love these two colours. Nude embrace is perfect for the day time. It's one of those 'my lips but better' shades. Divine wine is a beautiful deep red and an amazing shade for the night time, or equally perfect for a day time vampy look.

The staying power of this lipstick is actually alright, I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of matte lipsticks do stay on pretty well but because of it being a 'creamy matte' I wasn't expecting much, however I only had to reapply a few times through the whole day. I must admit I had to be a bit more careful with divine wine moving about as I didn't want red all around my face!!! Also this lipstick is not drying at all for me and kept my lips feeling soft, because of the lovely texture.

Overall I would recommend this lipstick, only thing is if you want a reallllyyyy matte lip then maybe this isn't the best choice for you. For the price of £6.99 I think it is a good buy and worth the money!
