It’s no secret that supermodel Kelsey Merritt loves the Maybelline Powder Mattes. (She’s told us herself!) Suffice it to say, we’re totally on the same page.
The 15 shades range from plums and reds to roses and nudes, all of which are perfect for every day (depending on your mood). Yet the diverse color spectrum is hardly the selling point of this collection. It’s a huge plus—but the formula is what sets these puppies apart. These 100% flat mattes have a powdery, suede-like finish that somehow doesn’t dry you out. They’re infused with honey nectar, a moisturizing ingredient that our lips want, no, need. So in spite of the no-shine pigment and ultra-saturated payoff, this lip paint stays comfortable—and stays put.
Brace yourselves, ladies: only P199 a pop (sob!). See the swatches on the girls at the BeautyMNL office.
