I’ve been stalking the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick for weeks but it was sold out all over the place. After seeing tons of reviews and swatches online I decided that I didn’t need them because the shades are similar to shades that I already have in my collection. The only color that called out to me was Hot Plum and I just couldn’t shake the lemming so I finally picked it up this past weekend. I can’t believe that I waited so long, It’s pure hotness!
The Vivids Collection of lipsticks boasts exclusive vivid pigments for bold color and honey nectar to moisturize and nourish lips. They are housed in a sleek coral colored tube with a silver bullet.
Hot Plum is not plum at all but a bright, slightly cool fuchsia pink so don’t let the name fool you. It has a cream formula with a slight sheen and is very pigmented and completely opaque with a few swipes. It glides on smooth and the formula is indeed moisturizing and does not dry out my lips.
The color lasts and lasts and leaves a slight stain when it wears off, I only need to touch it up between meals. I love it. I don’t know why I even opened the flood gates as now I am tempted to get all of the shades lol.
The Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids retails between $5.50 and $8.99 and can be found at a drugstore near you that carries the brand.
