maybelline "the mattes" | beauty

When I think of fall, I think of changing leaves, cozy scarves, and bold, matte lips. I recently came across a new lipstick line by Maybelline called, "The Mattes" and I just had to swatch them for you to see.

I wore a couple of these this past weekend and fell in love. They are incredibly pigmented, stay in place, and remain buttery at the same time. The matte finish is on trend right now and really set off a perfect fall look. The lasting power is impressive, too! My favorites are a mix between #4 and mostly #5.

1. Nude Embrace (650)  2. Daringly Nude (655)  3. Ravishing Rose (670)  4. Lust for Blush (665)  5. Touch of Spice (660)  6. Faint for Fuschia (675)  7. Mesmerizing Magenta (670)  8. Siren in Scarlet (690)  9. Divine Wine (695)

Maybelline sent me these products to review if I so decided, but I received no payment in return for this post!

  3. Ohh gorgeous! Maybelline lipsticks are always great :)


  4. I would love to know which colors were your favorite/ see them on you! Seeing them on skin helps but it's still a little hard to picture. Also, how was the wear on these? Sorry for all the questions! I love a good drug store beauty buy!

    1. Hi Olivia! My favorites are a mix between #4 and #5 (mostly #5 with a little #4 patted on top). I also love #6. They last a LONG time--probably better than any of my higher end lipsticks.

  5. So I haven't tried Maybelline lip color before, but now I am on a mission to find color 1 and 2, they both seem like perfect "nudes." I love a matte lip right now!
