Hello hello! These have been some of my favourite lip products not just recently but probably ever so I’m super excited to share this review with you all.
I haven’t always been a huge fan of Maybelline, probably because I always think of their Dream Matte Mousse that everyone had and it just reminds me of early teenage self-esteem issues and foundation tide marks…
However, recently they’ve been climbing back into my good books, mainly because of these lip products!
I have 3, in the shades – ‘140 Minimalist’, ‘630 Nude Perfection’, and ‘410 Fab Orange’.
The packaging is really great, they’re super sleek and small enough to fit in almost any bag, which is always a plus if you need touch ups, and at 4.99 each they’re a great price too!
‘140 Minimalist’ seems to have a slightly different formula from the others, it is a teeny bit glittery, which makes it not as creamy for me and slightly harder to apply. The other two however are so so creamy, and the colour pay-off is insane. I normally don’t like matte lip products as I find them too drying, but I have none of those issues with these.
The staying power is also great – I wore the ‘410 Fab Orange’ to a house party and didn’t need to reapply, despite constantly sipping on my wine throughout the evening. It transferred a tiny bit at first, but after a blot it was totally fine!
Out of the three, ‘Fab Orange’ is definitely my favourite. It’s much more red than orange in my opinion, but I feel like it really suits me as most reds are too pinky or plummy, which I don’t like as much.
‘Nude Perfection’ is pretty much what it says in the name – a perfect browny nude which is very in right now and also super wearable. This one also smells so so good.
‘Minimalist’ is just a really simple, low maintenance pink that I find great for when I want a nude lip.
Have you guys also picked these up?
Much Love xoxo
