Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Lipsticks in Mat 11: Review & Swatches

As I mentioned in my previous post about the Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Lipstick review, I had picked a couple of shades when they were launched. I have already reviewed the MAT 4 which a beautiful Coral lip color a few days back and today I am going to tell you all about MAT 11.


Price: Rs 475 for 5 ml

The Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11 comes in a rectangular transparent tube packaging with matte black screw on cap. The cap has a small leaf shaped applicator attached to it. I honestly love the packaging of this range and thee small size ensures that you can carry it around  in your purse without the product taking up to much space. 


The texture of these velvet matte lipsticks is pretty creamy, almost gel like and they glide on the lips without any tugging or pulling. The product is pretty moisturizing on its own so I do not use a lip balm directly under this. The finish is more glossy than matte even after you give it time to settle.





The shade of Maybelline Colorsensational Velvet Matte Mat 11 is a beautiful red with maroon undertone. MAT 11 is one of the most gorgeous reds I own and it is pretty pigmented so 2 coats leads to a nice rich coat of the classic red lips. The color is very flattering to most Indian complexions and the maroon undertones ensure that it is not the in your face kind of red.


The color stays for a good 3-4  hours, transfers a little due to the creamy texture but there is no feathering or bleeding. Due to the heavy pigmentation, the lipstick does tend to leave behind a nice red tint after fading  so even after it wears off, you have a pretty tint on your lips.


All in all, it is a good product even though it doesn’t give me my favorite matte finish. I like how light it feels on my lips and that I do not have to worried about prepping my lips before I wear it. The color is obviously another factor  that makes me happy and I would totally recommend it of you are looking for a nice red to add to your vanity.
