Maybelline Velvet Matte (Mat 12) Review and Swatches (Holy Grail Product)


Save the best for last. This is my favorite Velvet Matte shade, alongside Mat 2, but well, I love this more. This is why I am bestowing a now rare holy grail status to it. I am an extreme sucker for nude shades and I really love the very unique nude-ness this has. I never thought nude would work this well with me. 

So yeah, this is Mat 12. This is a standout in the whole collection because it's the only nude one. Every other color is all about vivid, in your face colors. And then this one is all about a nude so pigmented you can't live without it.




It's got a base of a brownish-peach color. Since my arm is more or less a pale patch, it shows its true color. 

But the moment you apply it onto the lips, the product plays with the lips' natural color in perfect harmony. I know this is not a satisfactory result for some people who really want to see the color itself, and would go to the lengths of using a lip concealer to get the color more accurately. 

It has a neutral effect on the teeth, too. I don't feel that my teeth seem whiter with this one.

 This is among the most flattering MLBB shades I have ever used, and I really will be looking to this whenever I want a natural looking lippie.
