Maybelline Almond Pink Powder Matte Lipstick
This is the first shade that I wanted to buy when I saw the Maybelline Inti-Matte Lipsticks. I'm really into MLBBs and I think it looks very close to MAC Mehr but PHP 800 cheaper than MAC because I got this lipstick on sale. I kind of gave the SA a hard time because she had to look for Almond Pink as it's always out of stock. It's one of the bestsellers. 

Mauve-pink with cool undertones and yet it still looks great on my oriental skin. It's super wearable. I love it!

Toasted Brown was a surprise to me. When I saw it in the bullet, I thought either this would be too dark on me or this would wash me out. But it didn't. Toasted Brown was a perfect brown lipstick on me. It's a warm peachy brown on me and it really complemented my skin tone. It's a perfect everyday lipstick for work. I'm so glad I bought this shade!

Maybelline Chili Nude Creamy Matte Lipstick
Last but not the least, I thought Maybelline Chili Nude would just be another red lipstick that I'd stash in the corner... but I actually found myself wearing this a lot more like a tint. I've seen a lot of people compare this to a Peripera lip tint shade and that's actually the reason why I bought it. It's a super wearable red orange lipstick and I'm willing to trade my Lime Crime Red Velvet for Chili Nude any other day. I'm actually trying not to wear this shade too much because I fear that I might use it too quickly. Haha.

Maybelline Powder Matte Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick Review
Packaging-wise, they're similar to my Maybelline Touch of Nude Lipstick (click here) which can be confusing because I now have four lipsticks which look completely alike. I've learned to place them in specific slots in my lipstick organizer, but it's still a little hassle when you're on the rush to grab the correct lipstick shade. I always have to look at the bottom and check if it's the one that I want to use for the day. 

As for the formula itself, it's very different compared to the creamy mattes like Clay Crush and my previous Touch of Nude. I find those two lipsticks to be super soft to the point that they'd always break on me and it's honestly such a waste. With these Maybelline Inti-Matte lipsticks though, it was a bit soft, but it's definitely more solid compared to the creamy mattes and the first powder mattes. It truly is a new generation of matte lipsticks.

I love how it's powdery matte but not drying. The color is very buildable, so I can wear it sheer or gradient just like a lip tint, and I can also layer it up to achieve the full color. And lastly, it's also very light and feels smooth on the lips. For me, considering I've learned to eat like a goat for the sake of lipstick, it lasts about 4 to 5 hours with in-between-drinks. I usually re-apply after lunch. It leaves a tiny bit of a stain, but it can be removed with plain tissues. 

Overall thoughts? These three shades, the Maybelline Almond Pink, Chili Nude, and Toasted Brown Powder Matte Lipsticks are my new favorite lipsticks. And they're actually my favorite formula out of the whole Maybelline lipstick collection. Don't get me wrong, I love the Maybelline Creamy Mattes, but it was just too soft for me and I don't want to have that "is this lipstick going to break on me today" feeling whenever I use Clay Crush or Nude Nuance. 

I really love the formula and how the Maybelline Inti-Mattes complement my skin tone. I really want to have more of these!

Bought this on sale for PHP 199 each at Watsons Festival Mall. Retail price is PHP 299. 

What's your favorite shade from the Maybelline Powder Mattes Lipstick line? What should I try next? :)
