Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Review, Swatches, & Giveaway!

Maybelline Creamy Matte Bold in Brown Clay Crush Review Swatches - (c)

My favorite matte lipstick line from Maybelline New York – now has nude shades. It’s the Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes collection and available in 5 colors. I also have a review (5 of 10 shades) of their first released creamy matte lipsticks. Now I have the complete collection and I’ll be updating that post soonest.

I wasn’t really into nude lipsticks before (say when I was in college and haven’t gone to makeup school) as they make me look like I haven’t slept for days – pale and washed out. Until I finally learned how to properly match it with my eye makeup and overall look, then I fell in love with nude makeups.

Btw, let’s all welcome the newest Maybelline Girl – Liza Soberano for Maybelline New York! Ohh how I love her! I finished watching her Teleserye with Enrique Gil, Forevermore on Youtube and now I need to watch Dolce Amore. I also watched their first ever movie! I’ve been a fan ever since I saw her in a shampoo commercial if I’m not mistaken, and told my cousin “This girl is pretty, I have a feeling she’ll make it big in showbiz one day” and I was right. I find her perfect for the brand that’s why when I got the invitation to the event, I already have a feeling Liza is the new face of Maybelline!

Back to Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes, the packaging is similar with the previous collection. The cap is transparent matte, silver tube with shade name and code at the bottom.

Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes

Nude Embrace
Daringly Nude
Clay Crush
Nude Nuance
Burgundy Blush


Has buttery-soft formula that glides smoothly without tugging the lips. It’s very creamy, easy to apply, velvety finish, long-lasting, and leaves a nice tint when it fades.

Pigmentation / Opaque

Opacity depends on the shades. Nudes or lightest ones tend to leave little patches so you need to put around 2-3 layers to make sure full lips is covered.

Lasted me around 6 hours (without eating nor drinking), then it’ll start to fade. The lipsticks can be a little drying to some people after around 4-5 hours so I highly recommend to condition your lips with a lip balm or better, a lip scrub if you have.


5 Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Collection Nude Embrace Review Swatches - (c)

Nude Embrace

It’s peachy / beige shade with satin finish. I didn’t expect I’ll like it and it’ll look good on me since it’s lighter than what I prefer. Since this one is really light, I needed about 2 swipes to fully cover my lips. It also settle on my crevices after 3-4 hours of wear which I find normal whenever I wear light color lipsticks.

6 Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Collection Daringly Nude Review Swatches - (c)

Daringly Nude

A peachy-pink shade with warm undertones. It reminds me of candy pink lippies. This shade instantly brightens my face and make me look fresh for some reason. But then since it’s a light color, it’s still a little noticeable when it settle on my lip lines after a few hours. This reminds me of MAC Kinda Sexy. I don’t have that shade but I’ve seen photos online and they seem very similar.

7 Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Collection Clay Crush Review Swatches - (c)

Clay Crush

I’m not a fan of coral nor orange-based lipsticks and Clay Crush is somehow close to that with its peachy-brown shade with warm undertones. As you can tell from the photo, my teeth appear to be yellowish than usual. I mean I don’t have super white teeth but it’s my thing with coral shades, my teeth look yellow. Since this is darker than the first two above, product setting on the crevices of my lips is not as noticeable. It’s also not as drying and lasted on my lips around 5 hours before it starts to fade. This is a muted version of Mac Oxblood.

8 Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Collection Nude Nuance Review Swatches - (c)

Nude Nuance

This seems to be everybody’s favorite and the next “Touch of Spice”. If you’re not aware, Touch of Spice is a very popular shade from The Creamy Matte lipstick line that it’s sold out almost everywhere for months! It’s a muted medium brown shade that fits almost a lot of skin tones and perfect for everyday look. It’s not drying and leaves a nice healthy looking lips when it fades. It’s also very similar to MAC Whirl only that the latter is darker and has more brown undertones.

9 Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes Collection Burgundy Blush Review Swatches - (c)

Burgundy Blush

This shade is a love at first sight. The moment I saw it during the event, I already fell in love with it and I know we’ll be together for such a long time! Burgundy is one of my favorite shades when it comes to lipsticks. This has brown undertone and the color can make anything look brighter like my teeth and face. It makes me look I had complete sleep whenever I wear it plus I really love the sexy vibes it gives me everytime. It’s a little hard to apply compared to the other shades so I suggest to use a lip liner underneath to hold the lipstick in place and avoid bleeding. This shade reminds me of MAC Diva and Maybelline Divine Wine.

Overall, this Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes collection will surely be a hit to a lot of Filipinas especially these days as girls are loving nudes – from fashion to makeup. The lipsticks have semi-matte finish and very long lasting. It won’t leave you pale as it stains your lips while it fades. It has a scent by the way, tho it’s not that overwhelming and is very tolerable. I like scented products / makeups but if this is your concern you better check it in the counters first before making a purchase. The scent fades after a while so I think you’ll be fine with that.

Application is really good. It doesn’t tug (unlike other brands) and glides smoothly on the lips. It also passed the falling test. It fell from my arms but the tube and actual product is not broken plus the lipstick is still intact inside. For only 299.00 per tube, these lippies are definitely worth the money.
