I researched its review and swatches online and after getting convinced about the shade, I ordered it.

Maybelline Inti Matte Nudes Lipstick Toasted Brown Review & Swatches
This lipstick comes in a color-coded plastic top matching the shade with the silver metallic bullet. This packaging has a distinct luxe feel to it. The lipstick shuts tight with a click.
It has a non-existent fragrance that isn’t distracting at all. If you look at the texture of the lipstick it will look like a dry matte one but after I apply it glides very smoothly and softly on lips. It has a powdery texture which isn’t drying but if I don’t exfoliate my lips well before the application, it accentuates the fine lines on lips and looks uneven.
So scrubbing lips is recommended before using such powdery-matte lipsticks. I also apply a light coat of lip balm under my lips so that they don’t feel dry. It gives a completely matte finish to lips.
Toasted Brown is a warm-toned terracotta shade which will suit every skin tone except some very deeper skin tones (above MAC NC 45). On my dusky skin, it looks quite neutral and appears to be a perfect nude for my skin tone. However, It will show differently on different skin tones. It is highly pigmented and in one swipe you get an opaque finish.
The lip color doesn’t transfer if you apply it the right way. I apply one coat then press tissue lightly on lips and then go for the second coat. This way, the color pay off and staying power is optimized. It stays on lips for 5-6 hours if I don’t have a meal. With meals, it fades a little from the inner corners.
- A powdery-matte texture which glides easily
- Sits comfortably on lips
- It provides full-on color pay-off
- Stays for a decent amount of time
- The matte formula is a bit drying
- The color tends to transfer
Final Word I’m truly, madly, deeply in love with this shade because it perfectly pairs up with my dusky skin. It has a comfortable formula which can be a little drying but can be taken care of by applying a lip balm underneath. It is fully pigmented and a rich color-pay off. It has a good staying power. It’s one of the best nude lipsticks I’ve tried so far.f you’re looking for a neutral, nude, MLBB shade for your lips, grab it!
