Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks : Better Than NYX?

maybelline liquid lipsticks
I've written about a few different liquid lipsticks on my blog recently - such as the cult favourite NYX lip lingeries, but one I had always wanted to try when I'd been browsing the Boots counters is Maybelline's Vivid Matte liquid lipsticks. Liquid lipsticks have highly increased in popularity in the past year, dare I say now more popular than your avarage lipstick, with almost all makeup brands seem to be offering their formula. Since Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands, I had to give theirs a go.
I have two shades of the product, the two 'nude' ones - nude flush and nude thrill. 
The first one I purchased was Nude Flush. This shade is much more pink toned, I'm pretty sure it's more a pink than a nude, therefore I find it quite out there. It's a really nice pink shade but because I'm not as confident wearing it on the everyday, I later picked up Nude Thrill because that was much more my shade, a beige toned nude. Although Maybelline don't offer the hugest range of shades in their liquid lipsticks, they offer enough to cater for everyone.
The packaging of the lipsticks is really nice, and why I was drawn to them in the first place. I love how you can see the exact colour of the product through the bottle and I think they look very sleek. 
Onto the products themselves! The applicator is similar to that of the NYX lip lingeries, very easy to make sure the product is coated all over your lips. The colour is very pigmented and the colour certainly lasts a long time and does dry matte.
The Vivid Matte lipsticks do take longer to dry than others I've tried and I do admit it does tend to cling to dry parts of my lips a bit. However, it isn't overly drying and does feel comfortable on my lips throughout the day.

Swatches of the two shades below. As you can see, although they are both classed as nudes they are entirely different. 

Do I recommend Maybelline's Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks? Yes, I definitely think they are worth trying if you're a huge liquid lipstick lover and need something new to add to your collection. However, do I think they are the best liquid lipsticks I've ever tried? I have to say no, they haven't quite outdone NYX's lip lingeries for me!


What are your favourite liquid lipsticks? I really want to try some high end ones soon!
