All I can say about the new Maybelline Matte Lipstick collection is drop everything (especially your plans to buy a £25+++ lippie) and grab one. The colour saturation is phenomenal, the shade selection is great – you can be shy in baby pink or fierce in fiery red – and the price at £6.99 puts over priced ‘luxury’ lipsticks to shame.

The shade selection I have is: Siren In Scarlet, Divine Wine, Nude Embrace, Magnetic Magenta, Craving Coral and Rose Rush. They’ve got a slight vanilla scent to them and the texture is ultra creamy. You wouldn’t take these for mattes on texture at all – when I think about all the dry old mattes at the beginning of the trend and their evolution to satin feel now, they’re just a world apart.

Over in the US Maybelline have just brought out a Babylips Gloss – hurry up – and also some liquid lipsticks seen backstage at Jason Wu. Just me, or is this brand upping its game? You can find the Maybelline Matte Lipsticks HERE (buy one, get one half price).
