Get That 90's Look with Maybelline Creamy Mattes Brown Nudes

I have been experiencing internet problems lately, hence, the lack of blog updates. I have been trying to blog for the last week but my attempts to be productive have gone to waste because PLDT service is obviously one of the worst. Okay enough of my rant.

One of my favorite lipstick formula is the Maybelline Creamy Matte. I got my very first tube last year way before it was launched here in MNL. I probably included Touch of Spice in my 2015 Hit List. Maybelline recenty launched the newest shades of Creamy Mattes in Brown Nudes. This is a much anticipated color range from the Creamy Mattes Line since the 90s lip color are back in the beauty scene. The Creamy Mattes Brown Nudes comes in 5 beautiful shades that are wearable from daytime to night time. Before Maybelline sent me the whole line for review, I already purchased Nude Nuance and Burgundy Blush during the sale of Watsons where I got each lippy for 199 pesos instead of its normal price of 299 pesos.

These lipsticks are creamy as the name suggests but has that lightweight feel. It goes on butteryand velvety as it glides on the lips. It has a thick consistency and the pigmentation is great. The color pay off is very opaque except for the lighter shades that needs three layers to show up on my dark lips. Compared to other matte lipsticks in the market, these creamy mattes are very comfortable to wear. My lips do not feel dry at all. It wears very well for hours and does not feel drying when worn. It does not give me crack lips too at the end of the day. This does not bleed nor migrate outside the lip lines even sans a lip liner. The colors look full even after several hours of wear and its color intensity does not wear off or fade.

These lipsticks have a strong sweet scent. When I first got my Touch of Spice a year ago, I was not bothered with its scent. However, now that I am pregnant, the scent just bothers me because I find it very strong. The scent eventually goes away after application.

Shade Description:

Nude Embrace: This is a true nude perfect when paired with smokey eyes. It goes on brownish beige on me with a slightest hint of warmth, that explains why the shade looks wearable on my yellow skin tone.  This shade needs a bit of work on my lips. It is not as pigmented as the darker shades. 

Daringly Nude: This is a dainty peachy shade. I have high expectations on this shade because the color is beautiful but this particular color looks patchy on me. This shade in particular (as shown in my lip swatches) looks very uneven on my lips and does  highlight my lip lines and dryness. I could not get the opacity that I want despite three layers of application. 

Clay Crush: This is one of my favorite shades in the range. I did not expect that it would look good on me and it is a color I would probably wear on a daily basis to hearings and meetings because of its subdued natural hue. This has a gorgeous semi matte finish and goes on a medium peachy brown on my lips. I need not apply any lip liner to cover up my dark lip lines. 

Nude Nuance: This is another favorite in the line. It is a medium dark brown with reddish terracotta undertones. (ang hirap idescribe ah!!!!) This color is looks so beautiful on my lips and compliments my medium skintone very well. 

Burgundy Blush: This is a vampy reddish burgundy shade. It very pigmented but I have a hard time evening the color on the lips to prevent patchiness. It works well with a lip liner to ensure that it will not bleed on the outer lines. 

I recreated the 90s look using the Maybelline Creamy Mattes and here are some of the photos:

  1. I have Clay Crush and it truly is the perfect everyday lip color! My sister has morena skin tone, so her color of choice is Nude Nuance. All of the shades are gorgeous and I have yet to try the other three shades. :)

  2. Definitely getting Nude Nuance talagaaa! Thank you for the lip swatches Ms. Donnarence! They're very helpful because I also have pigmented lips! :) Burgundy Blush also seems like a great color pero parang mahirap nga po iapply nang pantay! What lipliner do you suggest with this one? :)

  3. Nude Nuance and Burgundy Blush are so pretty! Will definitely purchase them once available, always always out of stock kasi!

  4. Pak na Pak ang Clay Crush and Nude Nuance! loveit
