Maybelline The Powder Mattes Lipsticks Swatches

Before we go to the bolds, let me show you one of my most favorite lipstick collection from Maybelline New York, the Powder Mattes by Colorsensational.

Here, I swatch all the shades from the line starting from the nudes to the pink to the reds. The collection is composed of 15 all wearable colors.

 Nude Illusion, Barely There, Touch of Nude, Make Me Blush, Mauve It Up, Technically Pink, Pink Potion, Pink Shot, Up To Date, Fuchsia Flash, Cherry Chic, Red-dy Red, Get Red-dy, Noir Red, Plum Perfection



Here is Kelsey Merritt, Maybelline Girl wearing one of the Powder Matte lipsticks during the launch.


Let’s put the spotlight on the lippies. Here are the shades:

 Nude Illusion


I thought that this was a real nude lip shade. I would wear this for really bold eye makeup.


 Barely There


I thought that Barely There was very similar to Nude Illusion, except Barely There has a pinkish shade.


Touch of Nude

One of the most flattering shades. It’s not exactly nude because it has a warmer brown tone. It compliments Filipina skin, in my opinion.

 Make Me Blush


If you’re into coral, here’s the lip shade for you! It’s actually a wearable coral shade.  It also brightens the look!


 Mauve It Up


One of the lip shades that I’m sure everybody loves. This is similar to Touch of Nude except this has a pink undertone. It’s an everyday staple!

Technically Pink


Technically Pink is a soft warm pink. The most wearable one for everyday.


 Pink Potion


Pink Potion is the deeper warm pink shade.


Pink Shot


Pink Shot is the hot pink color. I personally don’t see myself wearing this. Masyadong bagets. :p


 Up To Date


This is my favorite pink.It’s a dark warm pink that really flatters my light skin. I like wearing this when I’m wearing minimal makeup.


Fuchsia Flash

Here’s a cool pink shade. Also very pretty!


Cherry Chic

Cherry Chic is a red that has a blue undertone so it makes the teeth appear whiter. It’s an easy red to wear also.


 Red-dy Red


Talk about an orange red shade, this is it. It actually looks really nice as it pops! But it also makes the teeth look a little yellowish.


Get Red-dy

Red-dy Red is the true red, in my opinion. Think “apple” and Snow White red.


 Noir Red


Noir Red is a deep maroon shade. It’s very buildable so you can layer it to make it bolder.


Plum Perfection


Plum Perfection is the berry shade of the bunch. You all know I love berry shades.


The Powder Mattes have become my favorite line from Maybelline so far. They give off that semi-matte finish without the drying property. I like that it stains the lips and the lips don’t look as flat at using matte lippies. I’ve got so many favorites from the line. But if I had to choose one per color (one from the nudes, pinks and reds) I really like Touch of Nude, Up To Date and Cherry Chic.
