Review & Swatches- Maybelline Color Senseational Vivids

Hey guys,

So I’m totally in spring mode at the moment. I’m just absolutely loving anything colorful, bright and fun. So I thought I would share my impressions of the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids line. I believe there are in fact 10 color options in the range, but my local drugstore only carried about 5 or 6 shades which I’m totally sad about :( but i still managed to pick up three of them: Hot Plum, Shocking Coral and Electric Orange

Review&Swatches-_Maybelline_Color_Senseational_Vivids_Lipstick Review&Swatches-_Maybelline_Color_Senseational_Vivids_Lipstick_1As the name suggests its a line full of vivid and bright colors. I of course chose the brightest colors that were available. I just love these lipsticks. To be honest i’ve never tried any of the other Maybelline lipsticks from the color sensational line but I think I might just have to now. They are so soft on the lips and definitely feel nourishing, I guess that’s thanks to the honey nectar ingredient. And they give a beautiful high shine finish 😀 They have very little smell, really nothing noticeable, if anything it smells a bit like coco butter, but only if you stick your nose right into it!!! LOL which I wouldn’t recommend for hygiene reasons 😀 And most importantly the color pigmentation is out of this world..its totally comparable to many high end brands out there for a fraction of the price. I’m so happy that a drugstore brand has come out with some truly fantastic, bright and pigmented lipsticks for us beauty junkies!!! Well lets get to the swatches and more in depth review of the colors themselves.

Review&Swatches-_Maybelline_Color_Senseational_Vivids_Lipstick_2Review&Swatches-_Maybelline_Color_Senseational_Vivids_Lipstick_3Hot Plum: Bright purple with a blue base. Great color pay off, easy to apply and moisturizing.

Shocking Coral: Bright coral leaning more on the pink side. This one is also highly pigmented and soft on the lips. I think this color would look great on so many skin tones.

Electric Orange: Well that’s exactly what it is…an electric bright orange. Full of color pay off and comfortable to wear.


10/10 for these bad boys. They are highly pigmented, great color payoff, nourishing, high gloss finish. But don’t be scared because for those of you who might be going into epileptic shock from these shockingly vivid colors, they are totally sheer-able too. What do you think of these little gems? Have you tried them out, or want to?
