Hey there, hi there! I think it was about time I reviewed these beauts as I raved about them little by little when I hauled them and then in my last month's favorites. The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids line is amazing. So amazing that I'll go so far as to say they're maybe the best line of lipsticks the drugstore has to offer (for the spring and summer, at least!) All the colors in this particular range are bright and vibrant hues of pinks, purple, oranges, and reds! All of them are right up my alley and those who are ready to embrace the neon trend for spring/summer! I think the crazy bright red packaging was perfect to represent the amazingness that awaits you inside.
I ended up picking up two colors, although I could have easily walked away with them all! I got Shocking Coral which, like the name suggests, is a bright coral! It's almost like NARS Orgasm in a lipstick form (only a tad more bright!) I also got Vivid Rose which is a gorgeous (GORGEOUS!) pinky red! I used to think I loved blue based reds but there's something so fun about reds that have a little bit of pink sass to them! The only reason I didn't get more is because I have so many brights that some shades offered were really close dupes to ones I already had and I was trying to be good! The color pay off is sensational (pun, most definitely intended!) It's glides smoothly onto the lips and leaves opaque color in just one swipe. I love that these are such bright colors, yet not drying! They leave a sheen on the lips and while I know some beauties adore matte brights, I personally love them more when they have a little shine and moisture to them. It makes it easier to wear because you can barely feel it on your lips.
If you love wearing brights and bold lip colors I'd tell you to definitely check out this line of colors! They're going to be amazing and so much fun to wear when the weather starts to warm up. Even if you're not totally comfortable wearing such vivid colors just yet I'd say check them out anyway! You can dab this lightly on your lips so the color is bright but a sheer wash of it! You'll ease your way in to the full beautifulness of it all! These lipsticks get a big ol' two thumbs up from me! I may get some more if I'm feeling cheeky and want more of these red lipstick tubes lying around in my collection!
