Today’s review would be about Maybelline Liquid Matte Lipstick Best Babe. These Maybelline Liquid Matte lipsticks are comparatively new in the market and were launched just a few months back. The lipsticks are available in 11 shades all of which have been swatched on the blog earlier. In today’s review, I will be sharing my experience with shade 06, called ‘Best Babe’.

As this is an affordable lipstick, this does not have an outer packaging. The lipstick tube comes wrapped in a plastic sheet that needs to be removed before using the product. The wand of the lipstick is also a regular-shaped doe foot applicator which is helpful in applying color evenly on to the lips. Overall I won’t say that there is anything special about the packaging of this lipstick, but it is sturdy enough to travel with.
My Experience with Maybelline Liquid Matte Lipstick Best Babe:
Maybelline Liquid Matte Lipstick Best Babe is a pinky nude lipstick that can easily qualify as every day, easy to wear shade. The shade, like all the others in the collection, is completely free of any sort of shimmer particles. Pigmentation wise, the color has good pigmentation and gives an opaque lip in a single swipe. But if you are someone like me, who likes to add a second layer in order to make the lipstick look even more opaque, a second swipe of the formula works really well.
The formula of the lipstick is non-drying, and lightweight even after 2-3 layers. The lipstick is completely transfer-proof and hence has an amazingly long staying power. Not all the shades in the collection have the same consistency, some of being really patchy. But the shade Best Babe is one of my personal favourite shades. It glides on really smooth on the lips and is not patchy at all.
The only not so amazing thing about this lipstick is the fact that these are really a hassle to remove. If you have a long day then these are the best option. But if you want your lipstick to stay just for a couple of hours, then you would have to remove the lipstick using a makeup remover which in itself is a big task.
Overall, for the price point of Rs 349, these lipsticks are an amazing buy and the shade Best Babe is something that you will love to use every day. It’s beautiful and goes well with any makeup look and even looks pretty without makeup. If you are someone who is not too comfortable wearing a bold lip and is on a budget but want your lipstick to stay a good 6-7 hours, then this formula is for you.
