PERFECT 10! – Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Reviews & Swatches

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Hey Beauties,

I LOVE bold, statement lips! Some make-up looks are hard to master, but anyone can pull off a bold lip. When these were first released, I immediately ran out and bought the whole collection. I rock them all year-round!

Pink Pop (860) is a cool-toned Barbie pink with a soft frost finish. It is creamy, but a bit streaky and settles into the lines on my lips. This one is not flattering on me and looks a bit chalky. It is best suited for fair-skinned beauties.

Fuchsia Flash (865) is a bright, fuchsia pink with a glossy finish. This one is almost florescent in person and not for the faint of heart. Hot color!

Shocking Coral (870) is a warm, coral pink with a soft, glossy finish. I really like this color, just not on me. I tend to choose cooler pinks for my lips.

Vivid Rose (875) is a bold, mid-toned pink with a glossy finish. It is very pigmented and beautiful.

Electric Orange (880) is a soft, true orange with a natural sheen finish. It is surprisingly very flattering and wearable and glides on easily.

Vibrant Mandarin (885) is a mid-toned orange-red with a natural sheen finish. It leans coral on my lips.

Neon Red (890) is a brilliant, red-orange with a glossy finish. This one is gorgeous! It has a light, slightly slick texture and is the perfect warm red!

On Fire Red (895) is a rich, blue-based red with a natural sheen. Most red drugstore lipsticks that I’ve come across have matte or satin finishes. I really appreciate that this cool red has a glossier finish.

Hot Plum (900) is a cool, magenta with a slightly glossy finish. This one is easily my favorite! I’m wearing it HERE. It is very pigmented and so easy to wear.

Brazen Berry (905) is a cool, magenta fuchsia with a soft, glossy finish. This one is less vivid than what I expected from this line, but still very pretty.

I am in love with this collection! Of all my lipsticks, this might be my favorite line. These have the same packaging as the other Maybelline ColorSensational lipsticks, but the caps are neon orange. Fun! All of these lipsticks are rich, creamy and very comfortable to wear. They do have a light, fruity scent, but I kind of enjoy it.  These last about 3-4 hours on me and fade uniformly to a beautiful stain.

For a toned down look, I apply them with my finger as a tint and top it off with a gloss. Lovely! They are all permanent and at $5.50 a pop are a steal.  My must-haves: Vivid Rose, Neon Red and Hot Plum. Pick up a few and see what you think.

Later Beauties,

  1. The shocking coral is beautiful. I wouldn't even consider it based on the name but damn it is hot!
