Selfies are mandatory during a girls’ day out… And so are lipsticks!
The Daily Vanity team tested the new Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks, a range of limited edition, Christmas-exclusive creamy matte lipsticks. Since they’re designed for rocking at every festive party, the best way to test how they look is with selfies!
Read on to see how all eight shades in the range fared with and without Instagram and Snapchat filters, and find out what we felt about wearing them.
1. Kylie Jenner signature lip look with Touch of spice – #660
The selfie + filter test: This shade looks great on its own as a my-lips-but-better shade, but turn on a high-contrast filter like Lo-Fi and you get a bold shade that adds definition to your features. And if you’re looking for an affordable alternative to achieve the signature Kylie Jenner lips, this is the perfect brown-mauve shade to do that!
2. Vampy lip look with Divine Wine – #695
The selfie + filter test: This bold and dark shade turns on the glam for the perfect night-out look. We particularly love how filters give it a 3D effect that makes lips look even more luscious and kissable.
The lipstick glided on smoothly and was really creamy. Despite delivering a matte finish, it doesn’t dry out my lips like many other matte lipsticks I’ve tried! It’s very comfortable to have on. I love that I could get an amazing colour payoff with just one swipe. The colours also managed to last on my lips after a cup of coffee, and even lunch!

3. The Shim Chung lip look from Legends of the Blue Sea with All Fired Up – #687
The selfie + filter test: This pretty candy-pink shade is tuned up to a hot pink colour when we applied high contrast filters. With airbrushed filters, it transforms into a muted pink that gives a girl-next-door vibe.
4. “No makeup” makeup look with Lust for Blush – #665
The selfie + filter test: To avoid looking washed-out while rocking the no-makeup makeup look, try this beautiful shade! It gives the my-lips-but-better effect on a #nofilter selfie, and makes sure we don’t look too pasty when we add filters.
I love how the colours actually brighten up my complexion without needing to put on heavy makeup.
I find these Maybelline lipsticks very comfortable to wear and easy to apply. I love how the colours actually brighten up my complexion without needing to put on heavy makeup. Due to my dry lips, I must carry my lip balm wherever I go, but with the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick, I could give my lip balm a rest because it’s really moisturising!
