Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Mat 2 Coral 326 Review, Swatches & LOTD

Review By Arshita Dhara,
Hello Friends!
I am fond for matte lipsticks since I was a kid! So, I keep looking for lipsticks that are in matte range, and lucky me Maybelline Colorsensational has lauched its first matte range in India! So, with Radha’s recommendation, I bought Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Mat 2 Coral 326. Now, let us move on to the review...

The Swatches:

My Experience with Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Mat 2 Coral 326:
The packaging of this lipstick is quite attractive and chic. The beautiful red and steel color packaging makes it look very classy and trendy. At the bottom, the shade number and name is written on a sticker which is of the same shade of the lipstick. This makes it easy to recognize shades among many.

The bullet is quite sturdy. The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and to my fancy, very velvety! The creamy bullet helps to glide on the lips very smoothly and evenly. Though it is called matte and it looks also like it; but it is not at all dry. The soft velvety lipstick keeps the lips balanced in moisture and does not cause any chapped lips afterwards.

The shade of this lipstick is coral mixed with a tint of red. The shade is very bright and attractive. The matte finish gives a proper nice reddish coral shade that will look very appealing on medium to fair skin Indian tone, like me. Some ladies might feel under-confident about wearing it and carrying it off; I did too but when I wore it with my popping red color dress, I rocked in it! :P

My Take:

The staying power of this lipstick is amazing. Including my lip smacking and drinking liquids, it stayed intact for 6-7 long hours. It does not settle in fine lines (one great thing about any matte lipsticks!) or fades. The velvety and satin finish makes it look very nice and attractive. The only anomaly is it leaves a coral tint on the lips after wearing it for long hours.

Final Verdict:
I loved the bright reddish coral shade, the lovely packaging, and the soft creamy texture of this lipstick. In my opinion, this shade will look very nice on medium to fair skin tone. This particular shade might not suit dusky beauties. The staying power and the whole experience is more than satisfying for me. So, my both thumbs up for this one!
