Review-Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids

I just decided to try the Maybelline COLORsensational  Vivids only two nights ago and I love them so much that I had to write about these lipsticks now! When I think of companies that carry brightly pigmented lipsticks, I generally think of MAC Cosmetics and Limecrime. The brightest lip colours I own are all lip glosses from Limecrime or MUFE so branching out into brightly pigmented lipsticks is a very bold step for me as I always feel like all eyes are on me whenever I wear something bright. I am so glad these wonderfully affordable beauties have made their way into the lipstick world! 

Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish, in 8 super saturated lip shades.
Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments.
Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.

Out of the eight colours offered in the COLORsensational Vivids collection, I picked up the three that I felt most comfortable wearing on a regular basis: 865 Fuchsia Flash, 870 Shocking Coral and 875 Vivid Rose.

Price: $9.99 CDN (I picked these up for $5.99 on sale at London Drugs!)

Packaging: At first I was confused because the colour of the tubes is identical for the entire collection and I was looking for a hint as to what each colour looked like. It would have been nice if the colour of the tubes matched the lipstick colour inside just a wee bit.

Formula: Wow. So creamy and pigmented in just a few swipes! I have read that the Vivids rival the MAC formulas, but since I only have one MAC lipstick, I can’t really say whether that’s necessarily true. All I know is that I have been wearing these even in the house while cleaning because they feel so comfortable on the lips and most importantly feel incredibly moisturizing thanks to the inclusion of honey nectar. The wear time is a few hours at most as I had to touch up around the 3 hour mark.

Final Verdict: The colour payoff of these lipsticks is stunning and feels so lovely on the lips. The colour selection includes something for everyone and I feel like for the price, I will happily use these instead of a MAC one for now. I wasn’t expecting the wear time to be very long on these as pigmented lip colours tend to require more frequent touch-ups. A bold lip has brightened up even the most neutral of my make-up looks so that even on a casual day, I still look like I’m working it! I was so pleasantly surprised by my love for these that I highly recommend them to everyone!

  7. Yes yes YES! I picked up Shocking Coral this past weekend and LOVED it (also got it for $5.99 at London Drugs!). I totally wanted to get Vivid Rose too, but I think it might be a bit too bright for me...but your swatch is totally tempting me..ahhhh!!!!!

  8. Question for ya - how do these wear? Do you get the dreaded ring if you eat/ drink or does it stain somewhat? I love those colours but they make me so nervous I have to check on my lips every 15 minutes!
    Thanks! Angela

    1. You do get a bit of a ring and if you drink, your glass will have a mark on it. I just had to reapply, but I know it can be a pain!

    1. You love pigmented lipsticks, so I think you'd love these!
      I have these crooked lips so that's why I never post pics of my lips!

  14. They look so vibrant and pigmented! I'm so tempted to try them now. I never seem to buy lipsticks anymore since they're getting expensive, I fee like for a few more dollars you could get a high end one! (Not that that convinces me to!) I also never seem to find colors that I'm "in love" with either. P.S I love the swatches too! :)

    1. Thanks!
      I've found that if a drustore lipstick is under $10, I'm fine with it. When they get to be more than that, then yes I'd rather buy the luxury lipstick.

  15. Wow! Such vibrant colours ^^ I don't really like lipsticks, but I love seeing them in others and looking up swatches... I'm a weirdo haha xx

  16. I picked up Vivid Rose and Shocking Coral over the weekend and I'm in love with both (especially Vivid Rose)! The formula is really amazing and they are really wearable for such bright colors! Can't wait to go buy more :)

    1. Hmmm, I would have to say Vivid Rose because it's more of a purple-toned red which I prefer with my skin tone.
      I know you'll get these Helen, you love lippies!!
