Maybelline Colorblur Cream Matte pencil I like to Mauve it (50) and Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Flash (10) REVIEW and swatches

It has been a while since I bought something and loved it in terms of lip color. I am an avid user of lip balm, but I use lip color a lot less often. I love the idea of lipgloss, but they are usually too high maintenance and usually do not show up on my lips. These new Maybelline lip products changed the game. Both the Colorblur Cream Matte pencil and the Vivid Matte Liquid show up nicely on my lips as a my-lips-but-better and natural shade. A few of the liquid matte lipsticks in the past have always looked odd on me due to the stark and washed-out color it gives me. This one, however, looked quite natural.

I picked 'I like to Mauve it' (50) for the Colorblur and 'Nude Flash' (10) for the Vivid Matte Liquid. Both are similar colors of a rosy mauve shade.

On my hand, the Vivid Matte liquid looks a bit shiny, but on the lips it is a true matte.
