Maybelline Rich Ruby Creamy Matte Lipstick is one of several new, permanent shades in the Creamy Mattes Lipstick by Color Sensational Collection. I adore Rich Ruby! You so need it if you’re a fan of red but don’t be scared if you hate matte because the Creamy Matte Lipstick from Maybelline is one of the best mattes I’ve had the pleasure of using!
Maybelline Rich Ruby Creamy Matte Lipstick is a warm, rich ruby red that provides opaque coverage on a single application. This is a gorgeous red and exactly the shade of red I love.
The Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick formula is incredible. If you haven’t tried it yet, please do! It’s a great formula and I find it hard to believe that it’s a drugstore one as it has a very high end feel.

You know I’m not much of a matte fan but this texture is incredible. It isn’t quite matte in the traditional sense but does combine the velvety texture of a matte along with a thick, creamy, buttery formula. The lipstick glides onto lips easily and the creaminess provides smooth, even, seamless color. I think mattes have a bad rep of being stiff, dry, and sometimes they do tug during application. Maybelline’s formula re-imagines the traditional matte lipstick and transforms it even with a soft, creaminess that truly is a pleasure to use and wear. The wear is a good five hours (or in the case of this shade I can easily get six hours in). During that time I never felt like the color lost intensity or that the formula became drier or even cracked and migrated. It wore beautifully for that time and looked as amazing as the initial application. Now if you’re sensitive, yes, these do have a bit of a play-doh taste and fragrance you might already be familiar with if you use the original Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick line so just a head’s up on that!
I’m happy to see the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick Collection has been extended with new shades. The formula is a solid one and a great value at around $5 to $6 per a shade. Can’t beat the price, can’t beat the amazing formula.
Rich Ruby gets a big hooray from me!
