Another day, another line of matte lipsticks! Maybelline has doubled down on the matte lip market this season with 10 new shades of Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks and a brand spankin’ new line of ColorBlur Cream Matte Lip Pencils. A girl can never have too many matte lipsticks, right?
So here’s the scoop on these babies:
Lip Studio Color Blur redefines the rules of color with a cream matte pencil and blurring smudge. The cream matte pencil feels extremely smooth and comfortable on lips, while the blurring smudge creates your own looks from full-on bold to softly blurred. Color Blur comes in 10 shades ranging from vivids to neutrals.
I picked up 5 of them, including:
- 15 Berry Misbehaved
- 20 Orange Ya Glad
- 40 My-My Magenta
- 45 I’m Blushing
- 50 I Like to Mauve It
I know you’re probably still over there thinking, “Why would I want to smudge my matte lipstick?!” It was certainly a thought of mine. Until I saw smudging instructions on the tube and looked it up. Apparently, the inspiration behind the ColorBlur Cream Matte Pencil is this this reverse ombre lip trend that’s pretty hot overseas. I suppose I could dig it. But I think I’m gonna rock with these babies as regular ol’ matte pencils for now.
Will you be trying any of the new Maybelline ColorBlur Cream Matte Lip Pencils?
