Maybelline New York Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes Lipstick- Almond Pink

If I say there are so many of reds, pinks, browns, nudes, berry, mauves etc…only a Lipstick lover like me can really understand it.

Once upon a time I was all into nude shades but after that my love for bright shade started. But that never stopped me in hoarding nude colors. So when Maybelline launched its Inti-Matte range in India I had to try one shade atleast and after research I got this Almond pink shade. Let’s see whether I liked it or not.

Price- Rs 450/-

Packaging- just like other Maybelline color sensational range Lipstick which I like overall.

My View-

I think this is the perfect kind of nude shade for me or is it a nude shade even. As of now nude shade mostly washed me out or my skin looked pale. There was none which brighten my face and that is the reason perhaps I avoid nude shades.

So when I applied this shade it was love at first go. There is everything I love in this shade and formula. It’s powder matte, if given choice I am more inclined towards powder mattes. And it’s extremely comfortable on lips. It glides very smoothly and stays good on lips for 4-5 hours. It’s pink brown based kind of nude. I have tried this on my cheek too and a little on cheek gives a very natural flushed look. But just use a little. It’s good as even eyeshadow though you need to apply a primer before else staying power will be very less.

These days I mostly try my lipstick as blush and eyeshadow too. Let me know if you do this too. In swatches below I have also attached a lip pic without any Lipstick or lip balm to give you clear idea about the color pay off. I have pigmented lips and it covers my pigmentation very well. It will suit every skin tone.

Bare lips-


Ohh I so love this. It’s my perfect shade.
