Maybelline Powder Mattes Lipsticks – First ever lightweight Matte Lipstick!

Beauty 9 Comments

I know how much you guys loved one of the best selling lipstick collection by Maybelline, The Creamy Mattes. I’ve experienced how Touch of Spice has been sold out for countless months in almost all Maybelline counters nationwide, being the most favorite shade by most girls from the collection.

Now they recently launched another lipstick collection that you guys will surely be interested to try! The First ever lightweight Matte Lipstick, The Powder Mattes!

Packaging is almost the same with the rest of the Maybelline Color Sensational line, it’s just they are slightly matte. The color of the tube cap depends on the shade range –Β nudes, reds, pinks.

Texture & Finish
Powder mattes are powdery smooth. It feels like the result whenever you do the Tissue + Powder technique on top of your lipstick = Powdery Matte. Smooth and easy to apply.

It feels very lightweight on the lips, like you’re not wearing any lipstick. Great for everyday wear.

Not pigmented as the creamy mattes. I think their goal to make these lipsticks lightweight and powdery smooth, the pigmentation suffered a little. Though they are very easy to apply, you need to work on a few layers to achieve the opacity that you want. For dark colors like Up to Date (Pink) and Get-Red-dy (Red), they are more pigmented than the rest of the shades.

In fairness with the lipsticks, even if they are not that pigmented, I find them long-lasting. Even if I eat, my lips are still stained and I’m not bothered if I won’t be able to retouch my lipstick right away.

Above are my favorite shades from the collection, Touch of Nude, Mauve it up, Pink Potion, Noir Red.

Overall, for those who like lightweight lipsticks with smooth powdery finish, you can try this one. But if you’re someone that put product pigmentation on top of their priority list in choosing a lipstick, then you can give this one a pass and get any shade from the creamy mattes instead. I think the selling point of these lippies is even if they lack on pigmentation, they don’t feel heavy on the lips even if you layer them more than your usual routine with lipsticks.

Here are some photos during the launch

The Newest Maybelline Girl, Kelsey Merrit

Kelsey will be the lead endorser for their lip products while Liza is for their eyes and face makeups. This is not the first time that Maybelline will be working with Kelsey Meritt as she was already given the opportunity to shoot a Maybelline commercial alongside the ultimate Maybelline and hottest IT girl, Gigi Hadid in New York.

Have you guys tried any shade from the Powder Mattes collection? Let me know your thoughts! Are you on Team Creamy Mattes or Team Powder Mattes? πŸ™‚


  1. I have six shades from the Creamy Mattes and I am yet to try the Powder Mattes. I think I’ll try Mauve It Up and Touch of Nude once I purchase. I have so many reds and plum lipsticks na, and since it’s summer, gotta sport that fresh look naman πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Ms. Genzel, I love your swatches 😍😍😍 I belong to Team Powder Mattes and my favorite is Pink Potion 😘 it’s a shade between red and pink in my eyes. Thanks for sharing about the products longevity because it really matters to me a lot because as a mom, my time for makeup retouch is very limited that’s why I love lipsticks that state longer even if you drink or eat. 😊 Thanks for this review. God bless.!

  4. Love the swatches, Ms. Genzel! Thanks for the review. Two thumbs up! πŸ‘πŸ‘ Very informative. πŸ™‚ I’ve tried and fell in love with Maybelline’s Creamy Matte. But if I were to try (buy) these lippies, I’d go for The Nudes. The shades are very tempting! 😍😍😍

    Another lipstick to be raved about from Maybelline. I wanted to have one, particularly the Touch of Nude. But I’m kinda practical when it comes to buying makeup. I won’t be using it that much just like my other lippies that is why I’m giving it a rest on buying it. But for sure this powder mattes are great just like other Maybelline lipsticks. Tho, for me its not just as pigmented like the creamy mattes but the lightweight feel as if your not wearing one. Maybe next month I’ll probably buy it.

    Team Creamy Mattes 😊

    I have Clay Crush, Touch of Spice, Nude Nuance and Burgundy Blush!!! It is so creamy, easy to apply, very pigmented and long lasting but it is not transfer proof. But it is ok. I also love powder matte collection. I have Touch of Nude my favorite 😍 , Plum Perfection and Get Red-dy. It is so lightweight but not just pigmented like Creamy matte.

    Thanks for the review 😊

    Want to purchase Mauve It up and Make Me Blush next πŸ˜…
