Maybelline Creamy Mattes


These lipsticks have been out for quite a while in the states and I’ve been eagerly awaiting their arrival so imagine my excitement when SIX of them arrived on my doorstep, yay! From the colour selection I’m guessing we’re only getting this 6 for now but there are 20 in the US right now (so their website tells me) so fingers crossed we get the rest as well because they might be my favourite drugstore formula. Very, very similar to the Revlon Matte Balms in texture but a little creamier and easier on imperfections. They don’t last QUITE as long and the darker shades DO bleed but if you’re looking for a comfortable matte lip these should be your first stop!


The pay off of the paler shades isn’t quite as good as the bolder ones but over a liner I think they’ll be perfect. Really every one of these would benefit from a lip liner but I’m really only just getting in to that trend. I do like a nice crisp, sculpted lip line but who has the time? Brows and mascara takes long enough!!! I think my favourite of the bunch is probably Magnetic Magenta but I’ve been wearing Divine Wine all day and it’s so very seasonal I think it will get the most wear time for now. I can’t find these online yet so I’m not sure when they will hit stores but if you’ve spotted themlet us know.. especially if you see any additional colours!

    These look gorgeous. I love Craving Coral. They look quite similar to the Revlon HD lipstick I just picked up.

    Nice review, very helpful! These are wonderful colours, especially Divine Wine and Rose Rush 🙂 however some of them do seem quite drying… I’ll have to look into that to see if I get one!

    These are available in Ireland for about a week or two. I picked up divine wine, siren in scarlet and rose rush. Love them! Rose rush is hard for me to wear on its own so I use mac soar lipliner or essence satin mauve lipliner underneath and it’s perfect. Craving coral and magnetic magneta are next on my list!

    I love these lipsticks! They are super creamy and pigmented. I also have a review of some of the older shades on my blog!

    I picked up nude embrace at the weekend in my local boots. It’s great over a lip liner. They only had those shades and most were sold out.

    Craving Coral looks fabulous! It reminds me a lot of M.A.C’s Lady Danger!

    I love the Maybelline Creamy Mattes! My favorite is Divine Wine and Touch of Spice here in the US. If you get Touch of Spice there you should definitely grab it, you won’t be disappointed! 🙂

    They look lovely!
    Except that is one strange toned nude, not just on you, but in general!

    Beautiful shades! Divine Wine looks like a gorgeous Autumn/Winter shade that will come out a lot over the holiday season! I sometimes struggle with matte lipsticks but the Revlon Matte Balms are usually okay. If these are a similar formula they should be good. Will definitely try them. Thanks for the swatches!

      if anything they’re actually nicer

    The second one was my favorite! Have you gotten to try them over some time? Do they easily smudge?

      well they’re not super dry so they could but they aren’t messy and don’t bleed on me

    I have been wanting to try this brand, but I wish they had more selection the nudes. I am always drawn to a stone mauve.

    After seeing these swatches and seeing them mention in by a few youtubers I went out and brought Divine Wine and I was not disappointed 🙂
