|Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Electric Pink|
It's no secret that matte lippy is trendy again for the first time in ages... I blame this 90's revival we're currently experiencing with chokers, Gilmore Girls, slip dresses and scrunchies all making comebacks lately. I pretty much swore off matte lipsticks back in the 90's because of the horrific peeling and dry lips I'd experience, but it's wise to never say never and I found myself hunting down matte options a couple of weeks ago to embrace its recent resurgence. From the wildly popular Kylie Lip Kits to scores of Instagram photos of pouty lips with matte nude shades, I guess somewhere along the line I drank the Kool-aid.
Though I did come home with a few nude options, I was most taken with all the brightly colored matte lip colors on display at my local pharmacy. Everything from red to purple and even blue is available and they aren't all lipsticks - some are liquids. It was the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Electric Pink that grabbed my attention and though it's not what I'd personally consider a color for every day, it's quickly becoming a favorite of mine for nights out and occassions when I need a little oomph!
This lush liquid lippy glides on easily with an applicator that's just pointed enough for outlining the lips nicely. Unlike my matte experiences in the 90's, it doesn't leave my pout feeling dry and peely - it's actually quite comfortable to wear. As for the color - it's quite bold with only a thin layer and just what you want from a matte lip liquid like this. It lasts ages and Electric Pink is my pick for a night out... It's a little punky while still looking chic and classy. In short, I'm in love and will quite possibly end up buying the Vivid Matte Liquid in every color.
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid is £6.99, comes in a variety of colors and can be found online via Superdrug.
