Hi everyone! My exams are hot on my heels and I feel as if the blog has been feeling a little stale recently, so despite all this stress on the horizon I have decided to take an hour or two just to finally put out some posts that just needed a finished write up and get into this properly and enjoy it.
Today I have a review of the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks. As far as I know, these launched in the US first with an extensive range, then they launched here in the UK with a far more limited range. They’ve extended the UK Creamy Matte line two times if I have been paying attention properly.
Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks cost £6.99 each. I picked these up as part of Superdrug’s 3 for 2 deal whilst Mom was repurchasing her favourite blush.
Clay Crush is from the first extension to the UK range and Brown Sugar is from the second – not that anyone cares about that, right? They’re both nude browns. If you had told me last year I would be wearing lots of nudes I’d have scoffed but here we are.
Clay Crush is a night nude colour in the MAC Velvet Teddy family if you get my drift. Not too peachy or too pink or brown, but just a touch too light for my personal liking (I prefer colours that are noticeable!!).
Brown Sugar is a cool brown tone that can be applied lightly for an effortlessly cool vibe or applied heavily for a more striking outfit.
As you might have noticed, I’ve completely forgotten about arm swatches and colour comparisons but I’ll be sure to update this post sometime after exams with those!
True to their name they are creamy and lovely to wear. They do sink a little into my lip lines but it’s not obvious, and they are more forgiving on flaky areas.
Have you tried the Creamy Matte range before?
Until next time,
