Snaps & Swatches: Maybelline Powder Mattes

February 13, 2017

PRETTY is a supreme understatement. Maybelline Color Sensational's The Powder Mattes will surprise you in many, many wonderful ways. Locally, Maybelline New York launched 4 nudes, 5 reds, and 6 pinks. Compared to most if not all matte formulas I've tried, every single shade from this range has a nice velvet feel. While some shades were faint versus others that were very opaque in a single swipe, all 15 hues were buttery smooth to apply directly on the lips. True to its name, the finish looks powder matte both in the photos and in person. See some photos below for yourself! :)



NUDES
Barely There, Nude Illusion, Make Me Blush, Touch of Nude

Of the three colour families, the pinks are my favourite. All 6 shades are SO pretty and universally flattering. I immediately wore Mauve It Up in this K-love snap with Christine:




REDS
Cherry Chic, Get Red-dy, Noir Red, Plum Perfection, Red-dy Red

Could this range be better than our all time fave, Creamy Mattes? If you're after comfort, Creamy Mattes come second to Powder Mattes. These are so light, I can almost forget wearing them. Longevity wise, Creamy Mattes last longer on me. Powder Mattes fade nicely into the day (4-6 hours on me) so long as you avoid eating anything oily. What looks better in person? I think it's a tie!


Don't know where to begin your Powder Matte collection? You can start with the crowd favourites: Make Me Blush, Touch of Nude, Mauve It Up, Noir Red and Plum Perfection. All 15 shades are now available nationwide and over at Lazada for only Php 299 each.
