PRODUCT REVIEW: MAYBELLINE'S POWDER MATTE LIPSTICK IN TOUCH OF NUDE
Its Valentine's Day! Love is all around wherever you look. I am sure girls prepared for this day more than the usual. For the makeup of this special day, what lipstick did you choose for your date night? Me, I chose the new Powder Matte Lipstick in Touch of Nude for my look. I want to achieve a simple and natural look for a young and fresher face. My boyfriend and I had been together for 11 years now (and turning 12 this 2017!) and I want to look like how we met years ago, back to the time when I wear natural looking makeup and the period wherein I am not yet exploring to dark lipsticks, contouring and highlighting. The shade of Touch of Nude from the new Maybelline Powder Matte Collection is perfect for this look and today I will be sharing my thoughts and swatch for this lipstick. This is also my second pick from the collection. (For my first pick in Maybelline's Powder Matte Lipstick Collection, back read it here.)
The Touch of Nude worked well with my complexion and warm under tone. Its one of the best Maybelline Nude Lipstick that I was able to try. Touch of Nude Lipstick is my favorite of the month and I use it almost everyday.
I will not give you detailed review about it.
Type: Powder Matte
Shade: Touch of Nude
Product Description: Not indicated
I love the smooth and silky feel of the lipstick and the term Powder Matte is perfect for it. My lips look smooth and line-free whenever I use this lipstick. Its super easy to glide on my lips, no tugging at all!
For a matte lipstick, it works great in filling out my lip lines and it does not settle on dry patches. Yay! Its hard to look for a nude matte lipstick that looks smooth when worn. (Check out my swatch below.)
The color is highly pigmented even with one layer of application. It did not made me looked pale even without full makeup when I use it.
The quality of this lipstick reminded me of a MAC Matte Lipstick and it have few similarities to the shades of Kinda Sexy (but the Touch of Nude has a hint of pink than brown) and the limited edition Enchanted One (but the Touch of Nude is a little darker). (Back read my review for MAC's Kinda Sexy here and Enchanted One here.) You can get the same look and quality in a much more affordable price for only 299php.
This lipstick is almost transfer-free. It also lightens after eating but not fully removed. The lipstick does not leave any stain on lips after removal.
Most matte lipsticks require exfoliation before usage but this one does not need it because its a little creamy, at least in my case.
Since its a matte lipstick, it made my lips a little drier after use. Make sure to moisturize.
