Swatch: Maybelline Colordrama - Nude Perfection 630


Maybelline ColorDrama is marketed as being a slim lip kohl, I would describe it as being a bigger lip pencil, one you do need a larger sharpener to sharpen as this isn't a mechanical pencil.

The texture of the lip pencil is creamy and very similar to a regular lipstick. You can feel it on your lips but it isn't drying the way in which you may expect from a kohl pencil. The wear time is that of a standard lipstick, it doesn't claim to be long lasting.

Nude Perfection 630 is as the name would suggest a nude colour. This is apparently a dupe for MAC Velvet Teddy. I found that this had enough pink undertones to it that it didn't have that concealer, dead look to it on my skin tone. I didn't find this particular shade stained my lips whereas other shades in this range did.


My lips are quite pigmented and so I also swatched Nude Perfection, along with Keep it Classy and Berry Much from the same line on the back of my hand.




  1. I swatched it on my hand and, although I hate the concealer look on the lips, this one is too brown/too dark to be a nude, so I didn't buy it! x

    1. Yeah I think sometimes its the best way to see the colour against your own skin tone. Especially with nude lip colours.
