Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color Review!

Vivid Matte Liquid

Happy Thursday everyone!  I was at Target the other day and was thrilled to find the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colors on the shelves. Here’s my review on it.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color in Nude Flush 

Described as, “bold, vivid color [that] glides easily onto lips for a velvety matte finish. Formula is comfortable and creamy with a smooth feel upon application.”


Budget friendly

Good pigmentation

Good color selection



Made my lips feel numb

Not matte

Fragrance might be bothersome to some

Easily transfers/comes off when eating

Overall: Unfortunately, this didn’t work at all for me as I think I had an allergic reaction to it.  As soon as I applied it, my lips felt very numb.  At first I thought my reaction was similar to what I get when I apply lip plumping glosses but the numbness never faded away.  The second day I tried it, again my lips felt numb and this time they really started to hurt so I immediately wiped it off.  This applied like a gloss and isn’t really sticky but it never dried down to a matte finish.  About 2 hours into wearing them, I could still rub my lips together and get a glossy feel. Upon drinking and eating, the lipstick wore off completely, so this product doesn’t last long.  Even if I didn’t have a reaction to this, I would still return this as the name is misleading, and, in my opinion, you’re better off sticking to the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Colors.

  1. Oh that’s weird this made your lips numb. Maybe you’re slightly allergic to it? It’s good that you can return this! I really like the the tube design of this though – too bad about the product inside!

    • I think so. I actually read yesterday that a couple of people have actually had the same reaction. Yes, the concept/design is great but ultimately it fails to deliver and the fact that it made my lips numb is no bueno.

  2. Such a shame to hear you reacted to this product because the colour is very pretty! I suppose it’s better you found something else wrong with it so it makes returning it easier than loving a product and not being able to use it 🙂

  3. The product did the exact same thing to my lips too! I left the color on long enough for a photo and then I wiped them straight off. Maybe that’s part of product’s formula or something. Mine never dried down matte either.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that Taylor. In a way though I’m glad to know it’s not just me. I wonder what ingredient causes that. Yeah over all, I can’t see it being considered a matte.

  4. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard some You-tubers say the same thing about the numb lips, so it might not just be your reaction to these, which is actually kind of concerning. The pigmentation is impressive though!
