A couple of days ago I told you about me getting on the liquid lipstick bandwagon - I'm very very late!
I reviewed my first Catrice liquid lipstick, which was a good experience for me. I enjoy that liquid lipstick and it made me even more excited to test the second one I got that day: my Maybelline liquid lipstick in the colour "05 Nude Flush".
The packaging of this liquid lipstick is quite simple. It's just a rectangular tube. I do like that they made the top of the liquid lipstick matte, it's a small detail, but it makes sense if you're trying to sell a matte product, make your packaging matte as well. That's something some other brands haven't thought of.
This liquid lipstick came out a lot pinker than I thought. I actually thought it was going to be more nude.
"Nude Flush" has a good coverage, it's not one of those lipglosses or lipsticks that are streaky and take hours to apply evenly. The colour payoff is amazing and the texture is very soft. It does feel quite thick and it is rather sticky on my lips. I'm personally not a big fan of that but okay.
Aside from the gorgeous colour payoff and the very smooth texture, I do have some negative things to say about this Matte Liquid Lipstick (unfortunately):
The first thing I don't like about this liquid lipstick is that it doesn't feel like a liquid lipstick to me. I thought it'd dry - because that's what the product description says it will do - but it doesn't and it's quite sticky, which is a bit annoying, like I said before.
I thought it'd be a matte liquid lipstick and the best thing I can compare it to is the Nivea lip balms - the really creamy ones. That's what it feels like. I've tried keeping this liquid lipstick on for a couple hours, but they don't seem to go matte.
The second thing I absolutely hate is the taste of this product. You know, sometimes it'll get on your teeth or you might accidentally get a bit of product in your mouth... Most brands have lipsticks that smell nice and don't taste very bad, but this Matte Liquid Lipstick tastes like hell - and we all know that's not a good thing when it comes to lip products.
I'm not as impressed with this product as I thought I'd be. I really wanted to like it, but I don't think I'll be getting another one of these. Ever.
