Purchased by me

Hey lovelies,

These poor lippies have been lingering in my drafts folder for far too long, even though I absolutely adore them! Today I'll be showing you my first 6 shades from Maybelline's popular Colorsensational Vivids line (because being me, I naturally had to accumulate more).

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids - Neon Red, Vivid Rose, Fuchsia Flash, Hot Plum, Shocking Coral & Vibrant Mandarin

The Colorsensational Vivids line is packaged in translucent almost neon orange and silver. The lids close securely and the brightness makes them easy to spot in a cluttered makeup bag. I really like the design of these lipsticks, I can store them with the shade names upright to make them easily identifiable - you can see my lipstick storage here.

The formula on these lipstick is consistent; they all have spectacular, even colour pay off with a slight gloss to them. If they were MAC lipsticks they'd be Amplified or Amplified Creme finishes. I find them to be long wearing (4 hours or more) without being drying and they all leave a strong even stain. The only shade I experience feathering with is Neon Red, which is pretty par for course with me and reds, and can be kept in check with lipliner and concealer.

Hot Plum


Hot Plum is a hot pink with purple leanings. It read more pink than plum overall to me, but the purple tinge keeps it from being just another bright pink.

Shocking Coral


I seem to have misplaced my FOTD with Shocking Coral, sorry! It's a beautiful luminous pinky coral.

*

Fuchsia Flash


Fuchsia Flash is a cool blue toned pink - you know, the kind you think you'll never be able to pull off? But I absolutely adore it! It's such a fun colour to wear.


*

Vivid Rose


Vivid Rose is aptly named, a juicy deep pink. This is one of my favourite hues of pink for everyday wear, it goes with a lot and is easier to wear than the colour shy might think.


*

Vibrant Mandarin


Vibrant Mandarin is a glossy orange that pulls a little red. Another one I really love on my skintone.

Neon Red


And our final shade, Neon Red, is a glossy orange toned red. I don't really see any neon to this shade, but I like it nonetheless! 


What I liked:
  • Great colour pay off
  • Long lasting
  • Not drying
  • Leaves a strong even stain (this may be a con for some!)
What I didn't like:
  • Neon Red feathers a little on me.
Where to buy:
  • Anywhere Maybelline is stocked - kiwis can find it at Kmart, The Warehouse, selected supermarkets and pharmacies, Farmers etc.
  • I bought mine from skatestuff on Trade Me.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Vivids? Which is your favourite?
