Review: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Shocking Coral and Vivid Rose

A makeup post! Ermahgerd! I know I'm a little late with these Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids but late is better than never. I was already a big fan of the regular line of the Color Sensational lipsticks so I figured I would have an affinity towards these. Bright lipsticks can sometimes be the perfect accessory to complete a look and these are perfect for anyone who wants to experiment some louder colors without spending a ton of money.

It was a tough decision for me to settle on only two, but I picked the two that I thought would best compliment my teeth and skin tone. I may venture towards the Electric Orange in the summer when I'm tanner but I will settle for these two for now. There are a total of 10 permanent shades in the Vivids line. 

Shocking Coral and Vivid Rose
I'm in love with these. They don't dry out my lips and go on opaque and smooth. I find no issue with the product settling into lines. There was only one issue when it came to one of these lipsticks for me. I think depending on the pigmentation of your lips, the color may appear different. For example, Shocking Coral is suppose to be a bright coral red, but it pulls quite pink on me. It looks more coral in the tube than it does on my lips, which makes me a little sad but I still love the color. Vivid Rose is pretty true to color on my lips. It's a great choice for girls who don't want to go with red but want a bright lip!

-Bright, opaque color
-Reasonably priced
-Variety of bold shades
-Creamy feeling
-Has the same scent as regular Color Sensational lipsticks so if you hate those, you'll probably not like these
-Some may find the packaging tacky
-Colors may pull differently on different people


  1. OMG vivid rose is like the perfect strawberry reddish color <3 I went looking for these the other day and could NOT find them!

    Thanks for the review! I saw these at the drugstore recently and was wondering how they wear. The shades you chose are so boldly vibrant and they both look very pretty on you.

  3. Wow, vivid is right! I love a good bright lip colour.. I've been wearing more lip stains than lip sticks lately, but after seeing the colour payoff, I can't remember why!

  4. Vivid Rose has to be one of the brightest and most unboring reds ever!


Thank you so much for taking time to read my blog. I read all my comments and appreciate each and every one! ^_^
