Here are the four new, limited edition lipstick shades from left to right: Electric Fuchsia, Infra-Red, Orange Edge, and Pop of Cherry. I bought three of the four new shades!
From left to right: Infra-Red, Electric Fuchsia, and Pop of Cherry
Swatches from left to right: Electric Fuchsia, Infra-Red, and Pop of Cherry.
Electric Fuchsia is a cool toned bright fuchsia. Infra-Red is a bright true red that has hints of blue tones. Pop of Cherry is a bright warm coral. All of these shades have saturated color!
On the left are Electric Fuchsia and Fuchsia Flash. They look nearly identical! However, Electric Fuchsia looks a tad brighter than Fuchsia Flash. On the right are Neon Orange, Infra-Red, On Fire Red, and Pop of Cherry. On Fire Red is similar to Pop of Cherry, but overall it's darker,has more red in it, and is less coral.
Claims: "Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar. Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish."
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is amazing, as you can see from the swatches. Each color applies boldly and is opaque within one swipe.
Finish/Texture: These lipsticks all have a cream finish, and give a little bit of shine. The texture is smooth, buttery, and very moisturizing. I didn't experience bleeding or feathering either, yay!
Lasting Power: The creaminess of the formula wears the color off rather quickly. I only get about four hours of wear, but I don't mind reapplying these since I love the colors!
Scent: The Colorsensational lipsticks all have a sweet play-dough scent to them. I know that's a bit weird, but they really do. The scent is a bit strong at first, but it wears off after an hour or so.

I'm just as impressed with these new shades as I was in the original vivids lipsticks. Infra-Red is my favorite shade, and I feel like it stands out from the original line. Electric Fuchsia and Pop of Cherry are beautiful colors, but they are similar to the previous shades, as I showed above.
I really enjoy the creamy, smooth formula that Colorsensational lipsticks have. I've always been a fan of the line in general, and the Vivids shades reminded me of how much I adore this collection all over again! I have never seen lipsticks this brightly pigmented at the drugstore before, these lipsticks really are neon. I definitely suggest picking up a few of these shades if you're interested in bright, affordable lipsticks.
The Maybelline Spring 2013 Color Goes Electric collection has been my favorite spring release so far! I also bought some of the limited edition High Shine glosses, which I'll be reviewing soon!
