Packaging & Appearance: Talking about the packaging and appearance of the product, it comes in a cute little tube which is color coded. I absolutely love the packaging!
It comes with a applicator which which is quite helpful while applying the lippie. The lipstick is a liquid one which has a decent consistency, neither thick nor thin, just the perfect.
Smell: It has a sweet citrus fragrance which I personally like. Not so overpowering or bothersome.
Shades: Available in 8 different shades, I purchased Vanity Violet 07. It’s a pretty pink color with purple vibes to it.
I feel this particular shade will suit the Indian skin tone well as it is not too bold but still a brightening color. The purple tone mixed with pink makes it a refreshing and popping shade.
Swatch: In the image below.
Claims: Maybelline claims that Color Jolt Matte offers:
1. More pigmentation
2. Matte finish
3. Intense color
My Experience: I got this shade because I love the color of the tube. Yeah, that is how I make decisions. But on another note, don’t buy lippies for the color of the package, especially if it’s color coded. Don’t be Aisha, lol.
First thing first, it’s so cute and tiny (5 ml). I love cute stuffs to another level. Also, it’s from one of my favorite drugstore brand, Maybelline.
I like the felt tip applicator, helps in precision. You don’t need any brush for the edges or anything. I think it will be useful while applying even if you’re a pro or a beginner.
Obviously you’re here for a detailed review, so let’s get into that!
Texture: It has a creamy texture which glides smoothly on to your lips and settles to give a comfortable semi matte kind of finish.
Consistency: It’s a liquid lipstick having a creamy texture. So it’s neither runny not too thick, just the perfect buttery smooth!
Transfer Proof: It did transfer when I kissed the back of my hand for testing. So yeah it transfers a little.
Finish: It settles to give a matte finish which is not drying but also not hydrating. It does not settle into the lip lines.
If I miss out on my exfoliation and lip balm, I tend to have super chapped and dry lips. So, it’s good to prep your lips beforehand if you have same kind of lips.
But the formula of Maybelline Color Jolt Matte doesn’t makes you feel bad even if you skip it. Although if you want a beautiful finish, prep your lips!
Lasting Capacity: Long lasting you guys! Will easily last long enough upto 4-5 hours without meal. Will last all day through college!! Yaasss!! But feel free to go fresh room for touch ups cause we are sassy.
Fades or not: It does fade a little, especially if you’re having a meal. So ya touch up is needed. But the color is still there if you did apply a good dose of Maybelline Color Jolt Matte. I tried meal with a light layer of the product, it faded almost completely with just traces of color here & there.
It won’t survive heavy meals. So ya do carry it with you and it won’t be a problem as it’s travel friendly.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is amazing and you’ll love how it looks on your lips.
On dry lips, it looked patchy when I applied without a lip balm. My lips are another level dry, you guys. But otherwise, no patch or streakiness is there.

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 3.75/5
Will I Repurchase?
Maybe, another shade.
Do I Recommend?
Yes! Do give it a try if you want a lovely summery color which isn’t completely matte & drying.
Overall Summary: To wrap up, I love Maybelline Color Jolt Matte Intense lip paint! My only concern is the price to quantity ratio, which I feel isn’t apt as Maybelline is supposed to be a drugstore brand. Other than that, the color, pigmentation, texture and finish coupled with the felt tip applicator makes it a must try!
Love Maybelline? Then don’t miss on these!
