Maybelline Bold Matte ColorSensational  Lipstick

Bold Matte may sound like the name of a font you would want to title your project report with, and MAT02 may sound like some statistical software that helped you make that project, but worry not girls. Its just Maybelline has gone all tech on us with their spanking new Bold Matte Lipsticks by Maybelline Colorsensational !! And What better way to Celebrate Independence day than with a touch of orange from Maybelline’s Bold Matte Range Right ???

Maybelline Claims :

Hydrating matte with honey nectar 

Moisturising agents like rosa canina oil and jojoba oil 

Powderless matte pigments ensure true vivid shades 

Maybelline says its their first ‘Matte’ Lipstick in India. Umm Hello? Did you forget about your other kid- the 24 hr Superstay Lipstick– those were mattes too right? But for now lets cut right to it- MAT 02 is a bright, bright, vivid coral !!! If you are a lover of all things coral and can handle a little oomph then this is definitely the color for you – Im looking at all you Warm skinned cuties– from pale to dusky! Infact its kind of similar to their Stay With Me Coral from the Superstay range, except that i think that was more neon, and this one is more wearable. Going into ‘Bright Lipsticks i Lové’ List!

When you hear matte, you expect thick pigment covering your lips giving you that intense matte color. These give you that intense matte color alright, but they aren’t thick, or heavy AT ALL. Infact, they kind of feel like a stain- just feathery and light. They look like a lipstick, they feel like a lipstick but really i think these are just great, pigmented , opaque lip stains. You know like the Nyx Soft Matte Lip creams??? Yeah, these have a finish like that !! They last ages (Iv been wearing it since the morning since i started watching ‘Gandhi’ on tv and it 6 pm now and i just returned from the mall)– i can only notice slight fading after 7 hours and they feel pretty comfortable to wear, although just a tad (very very tiny) bit drying after two hours.

Pros of Bold Matte Lipsticks by Maybelline:

  •  Very Pigmented- two swipes to opaque
  • Feel very light and weightless
  • Give a nice, stained effect
  • Lasts long- over 7 hours with just slight fading and withstands meals as well
  • The finish is really pretty too
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Glides on effortlessly


  • Its just a slight bit drying (im being overly critical here honestly its a very tiny amount  for a matte lipstick)

Verdict: A

Price: Rs 375/-

Recommendation: I think MAybelline has cracked the Matte lipstick code with these new cuties on the block !! MAT 02 is a stunning, vivid coral  with reddish undertones and it lasts ages without being excessively drying (just a tiny bit) and feels so super light on the lips. They give a pretty, stained effect and have great pigmentation. Miles of improvement from the Superstay range and cheaper too!

Looks like a nice matte lipstick. How many shades do they have? I have 2 from the longstay 14 hr range and although the colours are super-pretty, they aren’t the easiest to apply! Is this one better than that range?


mehak August 15, 2013 at 7:43 pm

I like this much better than the super stay range ! I found the superstay range very dry and dragging on the lips!


anusha August 15, 2013 at 7:08 pm

Chris August 16, 2013 at 7:13 am

The color is pretty! I’m happy to hear it’s not too drying for a matte. That’s the very reason I don’t like wearing matte lipstick.

nad whats “honey nector” written on the cap.. isn’t that the name of the shade?… just wondering


mehak August 16, 2013 at 11:00 pm

Hi Meenu! Honey Nectar i think is listed as the ingredient so i guess they just promoted it!


kiransingh August 16, 2013 at 8:09 pm

mehak August 16, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Hi Kiran, I didnt use anything:(
It was a good hair day- my hair are naturally wavy!,


kiransingh August 17, 2013 at 3:43 pm

Bipasha August 16, 2013 at 10:36 pm

They seem really nice! I have a question ! Is your hair curly? or are those called waves? because my friend has the same type of hair and she can’t tell if it is curly or wavy! Weird right?


mehak August 16, 2013 at 11:53 pm

Ummm..i struggle wih that myself..well actually theyr wavy…but if i scrunch them when wet, they become curly!


Rima August 16, 2013 at 11:32 pm
