Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids Lipstick

Bright drugstore lipsticks are always welcome in my collection! When I first saw Maybelline release photos of the Vivids lipsticks on their Insatgram, I instantly wanted to try them. Let me start off by saying these are the best neon lipsticks I have ever tried from the drugstore. 


Just look at how stunning the colors are! At first I didn't think that they were going to apply as brightly as they appear, but I was wrong.


Swatches from left to right: Neon Orange, Brazen Berry, Fuchsia Flash, and On Fire Red

Pigmentation: The pigmentation is fantastic, as you can see from the swatches. Each color applies boldly and is opaque within one swipe. I could rave on  for days about how great the color payoff is!
Finish/Texture: The lipsticks all have a cream finish, my favorite! The texture is very smooth, silky, and hydrating.
Scent: The Colorsensatinal lipsticks have a sweet scent to them. It doesn't bother me because it fades throughout the day. Sometimes they can smell like play-dough which is a bit odd. 
Lasting Power: Since the Colorsensational formula is so hydrating, there is only about 4 hours of wear before they start to fade.  Reapplying doesn't bother me, since these lipsticks feel so comfortable to wear! I have never experienced bleeding, this formula stays put. 
Price: I paid $5.50 at Target

I have never seen such a vibrant line of lipsticks at the drugstore! The Vivids collection is definitely something you will want to check out if you like intense color, and for the price it's completely worth it! The rich and creamy texture makes these lipsticks super comfortable to wear. This collection has 10 shades to choose from that will compliment any skin tone.  I really wish that the Vivids collection would become permanent, because now I feel the need to stock up on some of these amazing colors!

  6. Hey,

    I'm from fuelmyblog.com :). But those lipsticks look really great! I usually shy away from lipsticks but these look exactly the same on your arm as they do in the previous picture. My favorite color is the bright pink, might have to try it!

    2. I LOVE bright lips, and these colors look great, but I won't buy Maybelline because the company tests on animals.
      Is there another company that offers a good selection of bright lipsticks?

    3. Milani Colorstatement lipsticks are super bright, and come in many finishes. They're a cruelty free brand, so it would be perfect for you! I have a review on all of the purple shades which you can find here: http://eatinglipstick.blogspot.com/2013/03/milani-colorstatement-lipsticks-plums.html

      I will be reviewing all of the other shades too :)
