Red is usually the last lip color I reach for but that may soon change! The Maybelline Divine Wine Color Sensational Matte Lipstick is so beautiful and makes me feel so sexy I could wear it all the time. I just love it!
Divine Wine is a mid-tone brick red with a slight brown undertone and creamy matte finish. It’s like the most perfect shade of red for fall and winter! It’s not too dark and it’s not too brown so it works well with a variety of skin tones too. And the formula? Heavenly!
The Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks are some of the most easy to wear mattes in my collection. The formula is incredibly smooth and creamy. Divine Wine glides effortlessly across the lips without tugging or pulling with full coverage in a single swipe. I could do without Maybelline’s signature baby powder/pamper scent but Divine Wine is still a treat to wear.
The color doesn’t emphasize flakes, settle into lip lines, bleed or feather much at all. Divine Wine also doesn’t dry out my lips like most matte lipsticks either. It wears rather comfortably for around 4-6 hours before fading into an intense stain that lasts all day. I know the Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks were a little tricky to find at first but they’re being added to the permanent line so they should be easier to track down soon. If you happen to come across Divine Wine I totally recommend grabbing it. It’s THE red lipstick of the year for me!
