Hi guys! I’ve been given these two lip shades by Maybelline from Influenster, called matte metallics. They are complimentary as Influenster kindly sends me a few items to test out and review for them. I love sharing what Influenster has sent me every now and again with you guys since the products tend to be relevant to my blog and sometimes they are newly released beauty items. If you are ever interested in trying out beauty items for free in exchange for review too, feel free and check out their website for more info.
These matte metallics lipsticks from Maybelline are relatively new in the drugstore and online as I’d only recently learned about them from receiving them. They’re a part of the Color Sensational lipstick line from Maybelline and I’ve had a lipstick or two from the same line that I liked a lot. Let me tell you how these lipsticks are the ideal drugstore lipsticks if you’re looking for a good one! They are inexpensive, have a wide range of color choices, and have a nice consistency, gliding on the lips easily.
As for my personal taste in lip products, lipsticks aren’t my first choice. I would first pick a lip crayon which I find more functional as they’re super easy to apply without using a mirror while also being moisturizing with just enough of color for a more natural look. But, when it comes to lipstick, I would definitely choose one from Maybelline at the drugstore. I usually wear lipstick on special occasions or days when I want to mix things up a bit, otherwise on most days I opt for a lip balm, lip crayon, or sometimes a gloss.
Anyways, talking specifically about these two matte metallic lip shades, I’ve got to be honest with you all, I’m not a fan. I don’t really enjoy matte lip products as they can be drying most times. Also, I think metallics are trending for lip products and I’m not really on the bandwagon. Maybe it’s because I prefer metallics be for my accessories like in jewelry or sometimes in clothes, just not so much on my lips. I like to stick to more natural shades and these were just a bit too bold for me, especially with the metallic shine to them. I prefer no metallics or sparkles on the day to day beauty items I gravitate to. The colors, as I said were too bold for me. The molten bronze was too deep brown to compliment my skin tone, while the smoked silver appeared more purple and I just don’t like purple.
I’ll admit, it was quite fun trying out lip shades I’d never see myself purchasing or trying out! I’m now thinking of finding a deeper shade of a lip product to wear on occasion this fall for a bit of fun! It’ll most likely be a burgandy shade as I find brownish colors make me appear a bit like I’ve aged ten years. Not so much my style, haha. So, after my brutally honest review, I’d give these lipsticks a 2 out of 5 stars. This is my review, which means that there is a possibility that these lipsticks may suit your style and you can give them a go! If you like metallics and darker shades for fall, I’d say you most likely will enjoy these as the Color Sensational line from Maybelline is a reliable choice of lipsticks from the drugstore.
