Maybelline Rosy Matte Roundup Reviews and Swatches


It's rouuunduuuup tiiimeee!!! I am sooooo smitten by this nudy pink collection by Maybelline!!!


And before the actual review this is Georgina's very sexy ad for this product line!

Here are the ingredients: 

This is how the packaging looks like. It's sooooo cute!!! I like how they made pink cases and bodies for this collection!!! 

For this photo and the ones that follow, I have them all from Mat 1 to Mat 5, from left to right. For my lip swatches, skin swatches and overall look, feel free to check out my reviews for each shade! 
Mat 1 (Natural Beige)- A light strawberry mauve.
Mat 2 (Salmon Pink)- A creamy coral pink, or salmon pink for that matter!
Mat 3 (Rosy Peach)- A muted and milky mauve, or counts as a dusty rose.
Mat 4 (Apricot Beige)- Melon ice cream turned lipstick!
Mat 5 (Soft Pink)- A creamy strawberry milkshake pink.






These are the swatches from Mat 1 to Mat 5 side by side. 

The following are my headshots from Mat 1 to Mat 5 respectively <3 






And so here is my feedback on the different aspects:
Shade Selection: This is a five shade collection of very creamy and mellow pinks, mauves, and nudes. I'm certain there'll be some criticism thrown at Maybelline given how close the shades are to each other. But I think the explanation is that this product line is meant to be the MLBB lipsticks of Pinays. What counts as "MLBB" (My Lips But Better) differs depending on the person you're talking to. Some people think that if the color "fades" into you, then it's MLBB. I personally consider lippies with the same color as my gums as MLBB shades. Some others consider all light colored muted rose and mauve shades to be MLBB. And to be honest, all three definitions of MLBB are what this collection is all about. So for MLBB lipsticks, this is a great collection. 

Texture and Comfort: This is among the newer generations of Maybelline's lipsticks, so this behaves in a very matte manner. Since this isn't a liquid lipstick the texture is light, spreadable, and emollient in general. I wouldn't say this glides as much as Maybelline's Vivid Mattes, though. Of course Maybelline's lip balms will be more comfortable, but this is comfy enough for a matte formulation. 

Color Payoff: What you see is what you get in terms of when you look at the tube and actually use the product. Since this is very creamy, this will really be very opaque and will be able to cover up whatever your default lip color is. I could use a lip tint and have very reddish lips, but the moment I put this on all the red will disappear and I'd have a creamy color on my lips. 

Longevity: This behaves a lot like the current Maybelline lipstick formulations, and will last 2-4 hours on average depending on activities. In terms of whether this will leave a tint or not, this will not leave a tint in general as the colors are too mellow and creamy to do so. 

Value for Money and Price: This retails for Php299 a pop in Maybelline counters nationwide, but keep your eyes open for flash sales and discounts because you never know!!! Each tube is 0.13 oz, or 3.9g. In general this is the usual size of lipstick so I don't have any comments over the amount I'm getting. I personally love pinkish and mellow tones, which is why I really see myself buying these lipsticks and buying replacements if need be.
