Review: Silkygirl & Maybelline Matte Lipsticks

Okay people, I know I have been missing in action on blogging for quite a while, I mean, for months and that's a very long time. I was MIA since the pandemic. You know, online class is freaking exhausting. I can adapt & I honestly love online classes but when examinations are replaced with continuous assessment, that's the real thing. 

Back to my topic, I have been wanting to do this for a very long time but the time constraints. You know, since I'm a cheapskate especially to beauty products, specifically makeups, I bought everything from drugstores. Ngl, my preferred brand would be Silkygirl since the price is very affordable (that's why it's hard to find Silkygirl items with discounted price) and usually it will only offer you a maximum of 30% discount either in Watsons or Guardian. 

I bought Maybelline's lipstick because of the trend and other's review, thus I think it would be an honour to review both since these are the most popular products and brands in drugstore, and it will also help the newbies to choose which lipstick is the best to use.

Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream

The texture is creamy and lightweight, not chappy when you wear it but it comes off a bit easily. It matte but it doesn't stick to your lips for a long time (unless for me cuz I concern a lot about lipstick on my lips hehehe). Packaging is too small I guess for the price of RM 24.90, it is kinda worth it. My ultimate colour will be Retro 01 - an orange-nude colour which suits my medium skin tone. 

  • Price: RM 24.90
  • Matte: 9/10
  • Rate: 7/10

Silkygirl Gen Matte Lip Cream

The texture is very light, I really love this over Matte Junkie & istg this is a great bargaun! The texture is light & it doesn't comes off easily. It is matte but not chappy at all. The colour absorbs well to your lips. My ultimate one and always favourite colour will be Cinnamon Kiss-10. Bigger & better packaging compared to Matte Junkie.

  • Price: RM 28.90
  • Matte: 9/10
  • Rate: 10/10

Silkygirl Matte Cushion Lip Powder

I forgot to put this one in the photo however, I mus say that I was excited for the idea of this Matte powder because i think it is unique. However, I hate it somehow as the the texture is not breally so good to me & it is uneven when is applied. I bought a colour of red tone in code 05 - Cherry.

  • Price: RM 27.90
  • Matte: 8/10
  • Rate: 4/10

Silkygirl OMG! Powder Matte

When it comes to Powder Matte, I am a little bit excited about it because the finishing is very nice & I really love it. For this one, I would say I bought a lot & I can't even count how many of this I have purchased. My most favourite after all but it comes off a bit & it is lightweight too. Favourite shade 02 - Mocha.

  • Price: RM 26.90
  • Matte: 8/10
  • Rate: 9/10

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink

I need to be freaking honest when it comes to this one because this is my worst purchase of Matte Lipstick. It doesn't comes off easily however, it is toooooo hard for you to wipe it off. Even if you're using an oil-based cleanser, it still needs a little effort to clean it. Then, my lips look darker after wearing this. Not going to purchase this anymore, however the colour choices are a lot. I bought code 75 - Fighter.

  • Price: RM 37.90
  • Matte: 10/10
  • Rate: 5/10

Maybelline (idk the name)

Been searching on the Internet what is the name of the lipstick but I just couldn't find one. I guess the product has been discontinued??? I don't mind at all since I think this is another worst purchase. It is sticky, glossy but- I don't know how to actually describe it but I think this will be the last time I put this on. I either would like to give it away or just, in the bin. 

  • Price: -
  • Matte: 4/10

Maybelline Colour Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick

This is my another favourite! I really suggest you guys to purchase this if OMG? Matte Lipstick from Silkygirl is run out of stock since they more likely to be the same, but Maybelline's is better since it is more lightweight than Silkygirl. Idk really know the difference between these two but I love them both. I choose colour Red-DY Red to pair with my nude lipstick to make a new shade.

  • Price: RM 27.90
  • Matte: 9.5/10
  • Rate: 9/10

Overall, I would say I love powder matte a lot & the most important thing to me is a lightweight one because I gets too annoyed with heavy lipstick on my lips. In a nutshell, I would recommend (on my personal opinion) Silkygirl OMG! Matte Powder Lipstick, Silkygirl Gen Matte Lip Cream and Maybelline Colour Sensational Powder Matte Lipstick.

  1. One of my favourite drugstore brand for lips is Silkygirl too. I tried the Matte Junkie Lip Cream a few years back and I have a love hate relationship with this one. It was patchy and dried out my lips. But the colour shades seems quite nice. The one I love the most from Silkygirl is I'm Matte LipColor. I have two shades from this range and I would say that I will add some more in the future.

  2. Masa mula2 matte junkie keluaq pasaran. it a-must-buy item okay! Wajib beli. not sure why skrg kalau sales pun still up RM20. a few years ago RM10 boleh dpt masa sale lah.

Beli sekali cukup. idok mampu ler teman RM30 utk Lipstick hehe. Btw nice sharing! <3

Review : Silkygirl Magic BB Cushion

Well here's a thing : as you guys know that I really, really hate to put on foundation to my face, so I always change my BB or CC cream products, eventually. Then I decided to choose something that is full coverage with light texture just to make sure my skin can breathe well.
