I’m not a fan of orange lipsticks. I feel oranges doesn’t look good on me. I always go for orange-red type of lip colors instead of a proper orange shade. My first orange lipstick was Maybelline Rebel Bouquet Reb 5. Then after reading a few reviews I picked up Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick Rosy Orange. Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the same.

My thoughts about Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick Rosy Orange:
This lipstick comes in typical color sensational packaging. The bullet is matte black with a red matte cap. There are only 4 shades in Vivid matte lipstick range. The shade rosy orange is a bright orange with a hint of pink. It has warm undertones and make me look more yellow in artificial light which I don’t like. However with full face of make-up it doesn’t look like that. Unlike other orange lipsticks which make me look dark and weird, this looks really good.
This is one of the wearable oranges which I have found. It is well pigmented and in one swipe you get around 90% of the color. With 2 swipes you get perfect opaque color on the lips. I don’t like the fact that these lipsticks are called as matte and even reviews online says it is matte but it is not matte. When I first apply this lipstick, it looks a bit shiny and not at all matte. Unlike other matte lipsticks which applies glossy and settle into matte finish in a couple of minutes, Maybelline Vivid matte lipstick Rosy Orange takes more than 30 minutes to settle into a semi matte finish.

The formula of the lipstick is very comfortable. It applies easily even on the dry lips. Even though this lipstick is moist, I have seen it settling into fine lines on the lips. About the staying power, it does survive light snacks and drinks with a bit fading but with full meal, it fades from the centre leaving thick outline on the lips. I don’t like this so for me reapplication is a must. I believe it lasts for around 4 hours with a bit snacking. It does transfer, not much though so you can predict the staying power.
- Glides easily on the lips
- Comfortable on lips
- Nice color
- Well pigmented
- decent staying power (around 4 hours)
