In this episode of the Hot or Not series I’ll be reviewing one of the most hyped lipstick launches of the season, Maybelline Sensational Inti-Matte Nude Lipsticks. I received samples of all 10 shades from the brand and decided to test how well these nudes perform and whether they actually enrich natural lip color.
Promise: “Maybelline’s creamiest mattes. Warmer, more sensational nudes for every skin tone. Pucker up to radiant, confident color that highlights one’s natural beauty.”
Packaging: It’s a standard Maybelline package with the only difference that the tube comes in a translucent neutral brown shade.
Formula: Very creamy and pleasant to wear. Inti-Matte lipsticks do not feel dry while wearing. In fact, Maybelline lipsticks are some of my most favorite drugstore options.
Color Range: Maybelline website features 10 shades in this collection:
- 530 – Hot Sand
- 535 – Purely Nude
- 540 – Peach Buff
- 545 – Beige Babe
- 550 – Honey Pink
- 555 – Naked Coral
- 560 – Raw Chocolate
- 565 – Almond Rose
- 570 – Toasted Truffle
- 575 – Brown Blush
Longevity: Since it’s a moisturizing lipstick formula, don’t expect it to last all day long. It requires re-application after every meal and throughout the day. The formula makes it very easy to add each layer though so your lip makeup looks neat.
Scent: Very mild, not irritating scent similar to other Maybelline lipsticks.
Transferability: It transfers (and it’s okay as this product doesn’t claim to be transfer-proof).
Removal: Easy to remove with micellar water; doesn’t stain the lips.
Price Point: $7.99 at Ulta (current promotion: buy 2, get 1 free).
The Best Part: The formula and a color range is amazing! I think it’s really great lipstick, especially considering the price.
The Worst Part: The product is not cruelty-free and not vegan.
Conclusion: Overall, it’s a great product to have in your collection. The lipsticks are easy to apply and comfortable to wear. These do not make your lips dry that makes them suitable for everyday wear. Even though the line comes in just 10 shades, there are plenty options to play with—especially considering the affordable price of the product.
530 – Hot Sand
(this shade is way too pale for my skin tone and makes me look washed out)
535 – Purely Nude
(has a bit more color in it, but still too light for pale skin girls)
540 – Peach Buff
(beautiful nude with pink undertone)
550 – Honey Pink
(one of my most favorite shades from the collection with a bit of coral and pink undertone to it)
555 – Naked Coral
(I believe it’s my perfect nude lipstick shade!)
560 – Raw Chocolate
(a bit more brown than I usually prefer, but still a very good one!)
565 – Almond Rose
(this shade looks like a slightly darker shade of #555 and I adore it!)
570 – Toasted Truffle
(I would not call it “nude” because it looks dark on my pale lips, but it’s a gorgeous shade that I often reach out to)
575 – Brown Blush
(love the plum undertone of this shade; again, it doesn’t look “nude” on me, but I love the shade anyways)
