Maybelline Limited Edition Colorsensational Vivids Lipsticks

The Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids collection is possibly my favorite line of lipsticks ever released at the drugstore! When new colors were released, I had to get them and see how they compared to the original colors, which you can read about here. The four new lipstick shades were released as a part of the Maybelline Limited Edition Fashion Week 2013 Color Goes Electric Collection, along with other new products! 

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.
Price/Availability: I paid $7.19 for each of the new lipsticks at Rite Aid 


  • Bright, pigmented color
  • Smooth formula
  • Creamy finish
  • Hydrates the lips/comfortable to wear
  • Neon colors at drugstore prices
  • 14 shades to choose from (10 original, 4 limited edition)


  • Lasting power is below average (4 hours)

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! 


  1. Wow, these look amazing. Pop of cherry is calling my name. Your lighting is great also. Do you use natural sunlight? Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yep, only natural sunlight :)
      No problem!

    2. It looks really good. I saw these at Walmart, but every single one of them was TOUCHED!!! UGHHHH. I'm the type to not buy it if its opened, even if I can sanitize it. I am determined to find unopened ones though. They look so pretty.

    3. I HATE it when that happens! I don't blame you, I wouldn't buy them either.

  2. wow look at those shades, so pretty! I'd definitely compromise on short wear time for such great colours. Love your clear swatches x

  3. First of all- I LOVE your blog <3

    Definitely can't wait to see new posts and go through your older ones.

    Love <3

  4. These look very pigmented and glossy. Very vibrant colours. I am impressed.

  5. I snagged Infra-Red on clearance at Walmart back in like February. I don't care that much for red lipstick but I love this lipstick. It's the only vivid I own.

    1. I love that red, it's a great one to have:)

  6. Gorgeous colours. I wonder when, if ever, they will be launched in India. The permanent Vivids collection hasnt launched either. Your blog is ur newest follower :)

    1. I hope that you can try them, maybe look on Ebay.
