Before I was obsessed with MAC I was a Maybelline queen! Then the quality just couldn't compare for me. Recently though I decided to venture into drug stores just to let my readers know what measures up and what doesn't!
I picked up two Maybelline matte nudes, and I tell you now, I'll be going back for more! These are gorgeous matte finished lipsticks. They're fragrance free, extremely pigmented and last 10-12 hours. Compared to the retro matte and matte lipsticks from MAC I'd give these a 7/10. The only down side is they aren't kiss proof (ask Mino and Nelly!) or as touchable, but for $6 (or less if you catch a sale or coupon!) these are definitely worth every penny! Check them out and let me know which shades you got. I'll add swatches as I purchase more.
