Fall means one thing for lipstick junkies – intense lip colours, and for me, the bolder the better. This is why when I heard that Maybelline was launching a limited edition Maybelline Creamy Mattes Collection for fall/winter, the excitement was a little too much to contain. After a few squeals hearing the news, my husband turns to me and says, “you have 100 lipsticks, why are you so excited about another 8?”. I remember hearing this quote and I’ve never forgotten it, so I turned to my husband and simply said: “men may come and go honey, but lipstick is forever”. So there! 8 new limited edition beauties to add to my collection.
If you’re new to the Maybelline Creamy Mattes family then you need to know that these lipsticks have a unique formula that offers a soft looking, matte finish while giving lips a creamy, comfortable feel with no dryness (which is rare for matte lippies).
The colours in The Maybelline Creamy Mattes limited edition Collection are gorgeous for fall: from intense pinks to lush burgundies and neutrals – they’re all so yummy!
Definitely brighter and cooler than Pink N Chic, I do find Electric Pink (above) to be extremely similar so I don’t think you need to add both to your collection. This one might be a tad brighter and bolder.
No collection is complete without the perfect red (Rich Ruby above). This red is cool in tone and if you can believe, looks almost identical to Louboutin’s classic matte red lipstick (swatches coming soon). For a fifteenth of the price, this might be calling your name.
An intense burgundy that stays just where you put it, I’m in love with Burgundy Blush (above). I’ve never worn burgundies in the past but my new year’s resolution (for fall) is to wear more of this colour, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I get. The trick though? A really good lip liner so that your lines don’t bleed.
Serious Lipstick Perfection! Maybelline Creamy Mattes are available in Canada now (launched October 27th) and retail for $9.00 CAD – but don’t wait too long because these 8 shades are limited edition!
Until next time,
