So, I’m still coming off of my Memorial Day weekend high! Also, cannot figure out what day of the week it is for the life of me! Those Monday holidays always get the best of me. We had SUCH a fun and relaxing weekend and I didn’t want it to ever end. But.. here we are… already half way through the week! And it’s crazy as well. I’m getting ready for a garage sale (my first one ever!) and getting organized for that is TIME CONSUMING! But hopefully the de-clutter will be worth it.
Anyways, my favorite part of blogging and the platform for Sweet and Modern will always be product reviews. I LOVE trying new things. And I love when I find something so good, that I can share with you all (and buy over and over!) There are so many new things out that it is hard to know what to look for. That’s why I LOVE a good review. So, let it be known, my reviews are never biased and they are completely, 100% my own opinion.
Lately, like everyone else, I am loving the pigmented, matte lip look. It seems so modern and classy to me and I love how it can tie together a whole “done up” face. So, of course I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to review a complimentary Vivid Matte Liquid by Maybelline!
Here’s what I received in the mail:
|Nude Flush & Rebel Road|
Gorgeous shades. Highly pigmented. The nude is so pretty and the red is so bright and bold!
No scent (pro or con depending on the person!)
Eeeeekkk.. that’s where it ends for me. I told you I am always honest!
Doesn’t dry like other matte liquid lips do (I’m looking at you NYX! Love that stuff!)
I had to blot my lips to get the “matte” look.
Within the hour I had the “looks like my lips are flaky and dry” look. And they aren’t.
Sort of difficult to apply. I don’t know if it’s because it doesn’t dry as quickly but I was having issues with smudging onto my face.
So there you have it. If I were going to go for a matte cream, I would highly suggest trying the NYX Soft Matte Lip cream over this particular brand. But that’s me!
Has anyone else tried either product? Thoughts?
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
