My views on the Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick:
The search for a pretty coral can surely end for many out here with this Mat-2 from Maybelline but still texture-wise, it could have been a little better.
Shade: Mat-2 is definitely a pretty coral shade with a hint of pink. There is a neonish tinge to this color so I use applying it using a lip brush which gives me a better color suitable for everyday wear. So in a more muted version, this color would suit most skin tones.

Texture: The shade though being promoted as being matte is not a true matte in quality. It is quite creamy and applies well and sets more with a semi-matte finish. The color is quite pigmented but still if you have pigmented lips, you may have to swipe it 2-3 times to cover the pigmentation fully. But the problem is with layering up the color which becomes creamier and tends to settle in lines easily.

The shade transfers pretty easily and I don’t find it moisturizing too. At the end of the day, I find my lips dry and can’t skip the lip balm later.

Staying power: The lipstick stays on for 4 hours easily on me. The glossiness fades within 2 hours and leaves a pink stain behind that stays on for another 2 hours. It survives a meal in between too but does transfer easily which is bothersome.

Packaging: The Bold matte lipstick has a matte red cover with no marking whatsoever. The bullet inside is sturdy and won’t melt easily.
