My first ever Maybelline lipstick was in a deep shade of mahogany. And it made me look like I had barely survived from a plane crash and out of desperate hunger gobbled down a handful of poisonous berries.
I was 13 – and clueless. @_@”
And then I never owned another Maybelline lipstick in my life after that. Lol.
So I was pretty skeptical when the range of Bold Matte and Neo Nude Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks came into my possession – hopes were low.
Now that I’ve tried them on, I must say I’m impressed with the quality of the lipsticks from these two collections, especially those in the Bold Matte range. I’ve never seen lipstick shades of such intensity coming from Maybelline before – so luminous, so bold!

Bold Red | Vivid Coral | Hot Pink | Cheeky Coral | Sugar Pink
These lipsticks claim to ‘deliver superior color saturation, and hydrated with honey nectar that nourishes lips’, but they still do leave my lips dry and flake a little – not a lot, in fact, a lot less than other brands. I guess that’s the trade off for matte lipsticks. You just have to remember to exfoliate beforehand to get rid of as much dead skin as possible.
