The Vivid Lipsticks♥

Lip products were my genuine weakness a few years ago. I couldn't contain myself in Boots or Superdrug - I was guaranteed to leave with at least a lipstick or two (or more!) The pretty packaging, stunning colours and incredible deals were constantly drawing me in. Within my lipstick obsession period, I happened to buy the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks. I was more than willing to try these after hearing about them everywhere.

I guess there must have been a special deal on that I got two - who can resist a tempting buy one get one half price deal?! I settled for 906 Hot Plum and 910 Shocking Coral. Both are ever so slightly out of my comfort zones and aren't ideal for day to day wear, but I make them work, somehow. They are bright and colourful but how could I resist injecting some colour to my makeup look?!

Hot Plum is possibly the brighter, more out-there of the two. The gorgeous colour must have caught my eye. I cannot even explain how vibrant and pigmented this is - honestly, the colour payoff is not even on the scale. The true colour is what you literally see in the bullet - now how often does that occur?! I wouldn't necessarily say it's best suited for any season - it looks fantastic in Autumn and Winter because it's bold but also Spring and Summer because it's bright and colourful.

Shocking Coral, in my opinion, isn't an overwhelming coral. Toned down, it's a beautiful orange-toned pink, but wore normally, it's a bright pink. It is much more wearable for everyday wear as pink tends to be easier to pull off. It doesn't require as much attention to application as Hot Plum as it isn't quite as bold. This is the lipstick out of the two that I am more inclined to using in the Spring and Summer as bright pinks are right up my alley.

These lipsticks as a whole are brilliant quality for their money. At £6.99 each, I find the pigmentation to be out of this world, the colour selection to be vast, the packaging to be sleek yet efficient and the application to be phenomenal. As they are creamy, they apply so well and don't feel drying on the lips at all. I do like when my makeup smells good (none of that chemical smell, no thank you), but these smell super sweet! 

I'm seriously thrilled and smitten with these lipsticks. At the price, I highly suggest you pick one (or two) up - you won't regret it!

Have you ever tried the Maybelline Color Sensational range? Any shades you recommend?

    1. It looks bright but in fact, it's not strikingly bright! Definitely more wearable than it looks! x

  7. I've always gone back and forth about getting something from this line, as I don't usually like lipsticks from the drugstore but you might have convinced me. I still think that Colourpop might be better though!

  8. Love both shades but Hot Plum is my favourite! I am obsessed with lipsticks too, I cannot help it when I go to a store and I swatch everything at the back of my hand and of course, I cannot decide which one to buy haha! It is a struggle! :)
