If there is one thing very consistent with this beauty blog is that never a week goes by without me reviewing lipsticks. That's how much I love lipsticks!
I was so thrilled when I got home and saw a pink box from Maybelline! I knew in an instant that it contains lipsticks because of the images! What got me even more hyped up was the fact that it's their latest lipstick collection which is the Rosy Matte. They are all nudes!
With lipsticks, I really prefer nudes and vampy red shades. You will usually see me with a nude lipstick on like the ones on the images above. The shades are so me. It's like Maybelline created a whole line of lipstick for me. Haha, I wish!
Rosy Matte lipsticks have 5 different shades from the same family. Does that even make sense? LOL. I'm glad that they didn't include a deep brown shade. That's no longer nude. I don't understand why other brands release a deep brown shade in their nude collection. Whhyyy.
The lipsticks shades above are the shades the ladies are wearing before that have gone nude. While they're colourful and sexy, you also can't deny that the nude shades (first photo) are sexier.
Don't be fooled with the darker shades at the bottom. I wish they matched the shades at the bottom with the actual shades of the lipsticks. It's easier that way.
I am really digging this new packaging of Maybelline when it comes to their matte lipsticks. Smoked covers with printed name on the tube.
Natural Beige, Soft Pink, Rosy Peach, Apricot Beige, and Salmon Pink

No more detailed description for every shade because I am in love with every shade! I think they all look good on me. None of the shades washes me out despite being nude. Maybelline was definitely not kidding when they said these are all nude shades. It's heaven sent to someone like me who are into nudes. It's perfection! I can't believe I'm saying this but I am actually having a hard time choosing a favourite.
Just like Maybelline's Creamy Matte lipsticks, Rosy Matte also has a creamy matte texture. It's not drying on the lips and glides smoothly upon application. I also tried to compare my Rosy Matte lipsticks with the lighter shades of Creamy Matte lipsticks and none of them are the same. The only con I could think of this is the staying power as it fades as soon as you eat. But that's about it.
This is, hands down, the best nude lipstick collection I have so far!
Maybelline Rosy Matte lipstick is available at all Maybelline counters nationwide starting today (June 2, 2016) for PhP299.
