Maybelline Creamy Mattes Lipstick (Touch Of Spice) Review

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lipstick Collection is arguably one of Maybelline's flagship collections in this era. Maybelline has been around for over a hundred years, so they've already released so many lip collections, but as far as the past five years are concerned, this collection is probably the most iconic. The idea of matte lipsticks but in a buttery soft and extremely comfortable formulation is something that can transcend trends and time. I'm so excited to be finally having reviews for this collection! This is the review for the shade Touch Of Spice

Overall Feedback: 
Maybelline really put a lot of eggs in this collection, as they came up with a massive range of shades, really comfortable formulation, and an affordable price range. As the name implies, this is one of the creamiest and butteriest lipstick ranges out there. The texture is powdery, but the lipstick is a bit thick, plus it's soft and moves, which makes it a very forgiving matte lipstick for people with dry lips. As this doesn't dry nor set, there's also no instance of it ever flaking off. This is also not does give the exact effect of a liquid lipstick, giving wearers a look that works on all occasions across trends and time. 

The color pigmentation is good, and most shades have good color payoff. It doesn't take a lot of effort the lipstick's color to fully cancel out the natural color of the wearer's lips. It also helps that this range always has so many shades, and they seem to always add more, so there is surely a shade for every kind of buyer. 

This is one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks out there, as it doesn't skid, doesn't feel sticky, and doesn't feel hot. It's everything people with dry lips have asked for in a matte lipstick. However, since the formulation moves, it's also not Maybelline's longest-lasting lipstick. One will realistically need to reapply this throughout the day.

At Php299, there's good value for money as this is really a step above other lipsticks in terms of comfort and texture. And of course, there's also the fact that there are so many shades to choose from.
