It’s been a little while since we’ve had some lip swatches happening on MTA! When I seen that the new Maybelline 24hr Bold Matte Lipsticks were finally in stores I made sure to get some pictures to help you guys out.


These are not to be confused with the original Super Stay lipsticks from the Maybelline line up as these do have a matte finish. Not only are they super long-lasting they have a matte finish which is what I really liked about the line. Obviously it is only a small range consisting of four shades but hopefully Maybelline are planning to release more colours in the range as time goes on. These are a dual ended product so the application process is applying the colour then waiting for that to dry before following with the balm product. It’s also recommended that you apply the balm end throughout the day.


Now these are not for the faint hearted because once dry, even before putting the balm on, they do not budge. You NEED an oil base make up remover or a very stronger make up remover to get this off your lips! It sounds intense but I feel like it needs to be said if you’re going to purchase them. In saying that they do last super well and with continuing to top up the balm throughout the day they are quite comfortable. In terms of pigmentation they can be quite sheer and require a little layering and moving around on the lips to get a good opaque coverage. Although the colour does appear super bright in the tube because of the sheerer formulation you can tailor the colour to the level of brightness you’re after. The above swatches are all done with one layer.


With proper lip care and preparation before using the new Maybelline 24hr Bold Matte Lipsticks they’re a great, long-lasting product. Just make sure you have a good quality oil-based make up removed at the end of the day! Now fingers crossed the colour range expands….

      I have a bright light directly in front of them plus I wasn’t allowing them to dry down because they are so hard to remove once set. IRL they are matte :)
