Maybelline Matte Brown Lipstick Swatches: Which One is Right For You?

The Maybelline matte brown lipsticks from the Color Sensational Creamy Matte collection are so versatile that you can’t go wrong with any of these. For less than $6 a lipstick, it’s easy to just grab and get all of them! But if you can only treat yourself to one to two lipsticks, this quick guide with Maybelline matte brown lipstick swatches will help you overcome your choice paralysis and pick the color that’s right for you and your lipstick needs!

FINISH: These Maybelline matte brown lipsticks have a creamy matte finish and are infused with oils, so they’re never drying. This formula has beeswax and honey, moisturizing ingredients that you’ll find in a Burt’sBees lip balmThe texture isn’t completely matte, they have a semi-glossy finish, especially if you wear a lip balm underneath.

PIGMENTATION: While it feels lightweight, one swipe is all you need to get an opaque color.

PERFORMANCE: Without eating or drinking, this lipstick would last anywhere between 3 to 4 hours on me.

Maybelline Daringly Nude is a nude pink lipstick with warm undertones. If you have fair skin and warm undertones, this will look great on you as this will help enhance your natural lip color. If you have medium skin, you can make this work and avoid looking washed out by adding a rosy blush or a stronger but still neutral eye color ranging from taupe to plum browns. You can also use Daringly Nude to tone down a dark or bright pink lipstick.

Maybelline Nude Embrace is a beige nude with no pink or peach undertones. This shade would work for ladies with ladies with olive or yellow skin tones. I don’t see this working if worn alone. Emphasize either your cheeks or eyes by using a pink or peach blush or creating a brown smoky eye look.

Bright lipstick colors not showing up correctly on your lips? You can use Maybelline Nude Embrace to neutralize your lip color. Apply it underneath your bright lipstick to make the real color show through. Like Daringly Nude, you can also use this on top of dark or bright lipsticks to soften the color.

Maybelline Clay Crush is a soft reddish brown lipstick. This is a brown lipstick that fair-medium skinned ladies can wear alone without looking washed out because of its red and warm undertones. This is the perfect nude lipstick for ladies with mocha or dark skin tones. Clay Crush is a safe color for school or work.

Maybelline Clay Crush is a dupe for MAC Taupe.

Maybelline Touch of Spice is a rosy brown lipstick with warm undertones. For ladies with fair to light-medium skin tones who are afraid to wear red lipsticks, this is a good starting point. This would work for any skin tone and the rosy hues will enhance the lips’ natural pink color. Like Clay Crush, Touch of Spice is a suitable, my-lips-but-better color for school or work.

Maybelline Nude Nuance is another rose brown nude lipstick, but compared to Touch of Spice, this has stronger brown tones and has a dusty rose color. This is the dirty pink brown shade that was popularized by Kylie Jenner. Maybelline Nude Nuance is flattering on many skin tones, and is a great pink nude for ladies with medium-dark skin tones. It is a sophisticated color for school or office, especially when paired with a beige pink blush like MAC Blushbaby or CoverGirl Natural Twinkle and brown eyeshadow.

Love the 90s lip? Maybelline Nude Nuance is also great for recreating that 90s-inspired lip. On fair-light skin tones, this shade can be used to create gothic looks.

Quick Tips When Using These Maybelline Matte Brown lipsticks:

EXFOLIATE: Exfoliate your lips before using Matte lipsticks to prevent flakiness.

DEFINE: Define your lips by using a lip liner following the outline of your lips.

LAST LONGER: Make it last longer by wearing a lip primer or applying a nude or similar color lip liner on your entire lips before lipstick application.

MOISTURIZE: If you have dry lips, apply a non-glossy lip balm like Burt's Bees or Carmex lip balm underneath prior to lipstick application to keep your lips looking matte and moisturized.
