Maybelline Velvet Matte Lipstick MAT6 Review, Swatch, Details, Price, FOTD

Hi everyone,

Few days back I did an exclusive first look post on these newly launched Maybelline Velvet Matte lip colors! Today I will do a full review of the shade I bought from this range, MAT6.

What Maybelline India Official Website Says..

My take on the Product:

Though Maybelline official site shows only 7 shades, but I have spotted total 8 of them. Again, Maybelline has described each one of them with pretty names. But I have seen them labelled with boring numbers instead. Strange, no?

Anyways, I have already written about the packaging and available shades here. The shade I got is named as MAT6.

Texture is very similar to how Maybelline has described! Creamy matte, with a hydrating formula. So if you like matte lip formula but hate the dry feeling it imparts to your lips, then these are the products you need in your life! The liquid creamy formula, light weight and non-sticky feel on lips, the hydrating consistency- there is absolutely nothing NOT to like about them!

I am a sucker for matte lippie formulas! I have quite full lips and matte lips only accentuate them. But most of the matte formula feels uncomfortable on my dry lips and at the end of the day I do see lip color getting accumulated at the dry areas and making my lips look flaky L But thanks to Maybelline for this innovation! Wearing matte lips were never easier than this! Initially it looks semi matte immediate after application but within couple of minutes it settles into a gorgeous powdery matte finish which feels hydrating and looks so good!

Insane! It goes fully opaque upon a single swipe of the applicator, as you can see in the hand swatch. It stains quite a bit, being a dark shade. But nothing serious which a good makeup remover cannot handle.

Staying Power:

As it stains, so it stays! It fades evenly and the stain itself looks quite flattering. To make it 100% matte, I dab it with my fingertips, after application! This further elongates its staying power! Also it becomes almost transfer proof this way! One day I applied this early in the morning, travelled a bit, then went to an amusement park and there I hopped skipped jumped whole day like a wild animal! But still I could see a hint of color on my lips after returning home! Do I need to say anything more?

Here's how the shade looks on me immediate after application! First two images are in natural light, third one under artificial light! If  you are interested seeing how it stains and looks after few hours, check this out!


MAT6 is a gorgeous pinkish plumish shade with a soft hint of red to it! I took too many words to describe the shade and hope it makes sense to you! If not then please refer to the hand swatch and FOTDs. I am bad at describing colors, I know! But this shade is beautiful and quite versatile. And I do see it working across wide spectrum of skin colors.

Summing up everything for quick reference:

  • Gorgeous powdery matte finish
  • Hydrating and does not require prepping of lips
  • Stains beautifully and stays for long
  • Stunning shade
  • Pocket friendly price tag
  • Compact packaging and functional applicator
  • Good pigmentation, sufficient for pigmented lips

  • Confusing numbers instead of catchy shade names

Final word:

Hope you have understood by now, I am head over heels in love with this little wonder! I just cannot wait to grab all other shades. They hit all the right points to be a perfect lippie! Keeping the frequency with which I am using this lip color in mind, I will finish 5ml product sometime very soon. And once that happens, I will most definitely repurchase this particular shade as well. For a normal day when I want to dress up little bit, this is THE lipstick I have been reaching out for of late!

This range has array of beautiful shades with stunning pink coral brown and red hues. And they are well worthy to invest in. I still do not see them available on any online sites. But if you can spot them, grab some without any second thought. 

Rating: 5/5

Have you got your hands on these gorgeous lipsticks? If yes, please suggest me which shade I should get next.

Lots of love,
