Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks - Review

I get so excited when I see a brand releasing some gorgeous new lipsticks. I get super excited when it is an affordable brand and the colours are so bright and pretty! Maybelline got me super, super excited about the Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks. You know about my lipstick addiction so you should also know I had to get my hands on these ASAP! 

Maybelline have released eight shades of the Vivids lipsticks in Australia and I have purchased six of them. It took trips to a few different stores to collect them all up - they seem to be pretty popular.

The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids shades I purchased are:

900 Pink Pop - a bright soft pink

902 Fuchsia Flash - a bright blue based pink

904 Vivid Rose - a bright rose pink

906 Hot Plum - a bright purple pink 

910 Shocking Coral - a bright coral red 

914 Vibrant Mandarin - a bright orange red

As you should be able to tell by now - these are all bright (and VIVID) shades. Perfect for me, maybe a little bright for some (but dare to try!). The other two shades I don't own are 912 Electric Orange and 916 Neon Red

These lipsticks feel lovely and smooth on the lips. They glide on easily with no tugging. I have found they are not overly moisturising but not drying either (which is always a good thing). 

The pigmentation of the Vivid lipsticks is amazing. They are nearly opaque in one swipe. On average I have found these lipsticks wear for around 4 hours before wearing away. Most of the shades leave a slight stain on the lips. 

The swatches below are in the same order as above.

I am so pleased Maybelline released these lipsticks. It is excellent to be able to buy fantastic bright lipsticks at an affordable price. They are great quality and the colours are amazing. I highly recommend you check them out!

The Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks retail for $16.95 at all Maybelline stockists.

Have you tried the Color Sensational Vivids lipsticks? Are you a bright lipstick wearer? 


  1. Great review. I just bought six of these today and now I'm even more excited to use them. I love how insanely bright they are.

    1. I love the brightness too! Bright shades just make me happy. :)

  2. I have been fighting my urge to buy them!!! I think I NEED Rose, Coral, Plum and Mandarin!!

    I just swatched them today and those four were my favourites. :P Now I just need someone to talk me out of these, lol.

    1. I will never talk someone out of buying a good lipstick. You need to buy these! Haha :)

  3. I've bought the Shocking Coral but haven't used it yet (oppps). I'll have to try it this week. Thanks for reminding me I have it :) Great review.
