It was really exciting when I received my invitation from Maybelline to London Fashion Week. I've never been to London Fashion Week and I was really excited to experience what it's like. We were invited down to their suite and given the low down on the makeup trends for Spring/Summer next year. Their makeup artist showed us two different looks for the season, including how to create the perfect red lip with the Vivid Matte lipsticks.
The Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks* were the official lip colour of London Fashion Week and they were getting a lot of attention in their suite! The Vivid Matte collection features eight different shades, meaning that the collection includes every shade a girl needs. There are pretty nudes, daring reds and perfect plums for Autumn. I've swatched every beautiful shade for you below. From top to bottom we have; Nude Flush (05), Nude Thrill (50), Berry Boost (40), Orange Shot (25), Rebel Red (35), Electric Pink (15) and Possessed Plum (45). There is one additional shade not swatched here, which is Coral Courage (20), a lovely Coral Pink.
They are packaged in a pretty rectangle tube and they have a handy doe foot applicator, which makes application dreamy. You can tell by the swatches above that these lipsticks are super pigmented, which helps you to achieve a high impact colour. The Vivid Matte formulation is all about achieving beautiful colour, with a vivid matte finish, but without creating dry, flakey lips. The colours are so vibrant on the lips and leave the lips feeling moisturised. The formula allows you to use these lipsticks in three different ways. For a classic matte finish swipe off the excess on the wand and apply sparingly to the lips. If you want to have a more stained look, apply and then dab the lips with a tissue. For a more vivid, shiny look apply generously.
The Maybelline Vivid Matte collection is available now, retailing at £6.99 a shade here. However, Maybelline were kind enough to gift me a second set of the Vivid Matte Collection, which I've decided to give away to you guys!
