Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks


Hi Divas!

I went a little crazy this past Easter with lipstick purchases. I was out buying a dozen of hot cross buns and came home with almost a dozen of lipsticks too. I have been searching for the perfect hot pink lipstick for a while now and finally found what I was looking for plus more. The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks have been on the shelves for quite some time. They are vibrant rich creamy lipsticks with honey nectar that gives the most amazing look of bold colour on your lips. I am truly in love with these lipsticks. They glide on smoothly and the pigmentation is intense. 

Each lipstick is encased in a see through plastic red casing with the lipstick formula in a silver tube. The size of the actual lipstick is perfect and would apply easily across the lips with minimal smudging. I love colour as some of you may have noticed, so I really like the packaging of these lipsticks. They are sturdy and bright which is great to pop in your handbag and can be easily fished out in an over sized one too. This is probably a weird fun fact to add but I love the smell of this lipstick. I would find myself opening the lipstick cases just to have a sniff. Is that weird? I think so. I am never bothered by lipstick scents but for some reason these lipsticks have really caught my attention in the olfactory department. I'm going to struggle to explain the actual smell to you, but it smells like a really sweet crayon. If that makes no sense, I am so sorry! Lol.



The Shades I purchased:




Fuchsia Flash (902)
This is the perfect hot pink lipstick for my skin tone. It is not too light that it screams tacky candy floss. It is the perfect balance of a bright bold fuchsia shade that can be worn with a sexy, playful or sophisticated outfit. It is definitely a colour that is not for the shy at heart. You will stand out of the crowd when you wear it.

Vibrant Mandarin (914)  
I actually expected this shade to be a more coral/orange tone, but it leans more to a light red transitioning into a coral shade. If you want something bright that is not too red then this would be a great choice. The colour is bold and vibrant but not too sexy and dominant as a red lip. This would be great for the office.

Hot Plum (906) 
This colour is very similar to Fuchsia Flash. It is slightly darker with purple undertones yet still bold and bright to make a statement. From afar the lipstick shade reads as a dark pink lipstick but up close you will be able to notice the difference and see the plum tones. I really love this shade. It is perfect if you still want to have a bright bold lip but not too playful or girly as the hot pink lipsticks.


Neon Red (916)
This is a classic red shade. It is definitely not neon in colour but it is perfect for a classic red lip. The lipstick does look glossier in texture compared to the other shades. It is pretty with a glossy finish.

I prefer to do lip swatches instead of arm swatches when it comes to lipsticks. I think you will be able to make better judgments on whether you like the lipstick shades or not. Plus I have really FULL lips so the product is shown in all its glory. Hehehe :-) I am still trying to perfect the swatches so please excuse my photos if they are not perfect.

These are truly my favourite lipsticks right now. I have been wearing them everyday rotating the colours. They feel creamy and look great on the lips plus the colour pigmentation is wonderful. They do rub off slightly after you have eaten so be sure to glide the colour back on after lunch or dinner.  Have any of you lovely ladies tried these lipsticks or have any colour recommendations for me? Let me know below.



Wishing everyone a fantastic week. 
Lots of divalicious kisses.
