MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL VIVIDS LIPSTICKS REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Finally, a new range of lipsticks that has actually caught my eye and quite literally at that! 

Pigmentation:
So let's talk the most obvious first, pigmentation. The intensity of these lipstick colours is due to the "pure pigment formula" which helps create such bold and pigmented shades.Whatever that formulation is, it's working because these lipsticks are crazy bright!

Application:
I find that since these lipsticks are so creamy, you really don't need a lip liner. I didn't use a lip liner in the video where I was swatching these lipsticks on my lips and as you can see, there are no issues with feathering or over-lining; I think the shape of the bullet has something to do with the precise application.

Consistency:
What I love about the consistency is that it's a very rich and creamy texture that's quite moisturising on the lips. These are made from a nourishing honey nectar so they have a very creamy feel which helps them glide on with ease.

Colour Range:
They currently have 8 different vivid shades to choose from; all being absolutely incredible! This is one of the first ranges of lipstick I have actually wanted every single colour, not even with the Revlon Lip Butters did I want them all but every shade from this range is so stunning!
Scent:
Unlike most lipsticks, they actually smell great! They have quite a strong vanilla scent which somewhat reminds me of the MAC lipsticks but overall the scent is amazing.

Price:
For such a vibrant lipstick you would usually find it hard getting your hands on it in a drugstore and have to go to MAC ($36) or YSL ($55). These Vivids are actually really reasonably priced at $16.95 and Priceline even has them on sale at the moment for $13.95, BARGAIN!

Packaging:
They come in a squared red tube which is very sleek and pretty to display. Functional features of this package include; correct to colour labels on the bottom of the lipstick so you can store them in a way you see the colour and a reflective panel on the top so that you can have a mini mirror to help you apply the lipstick on the go.

Availability:
As you girls probably know, Maybelline is pretty much stocked everywhere these days; chemists, Target, Kmart, Coles, Woolworths and of course Priceline.
So those are my thoughts on the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks (wow, that's a mouthful) and as you can tell, I am a huge fan of these. I think every aspect of these lipstick are great and Maybelline has done a great job at bringing super colourful and good quality lipsticks onto the drugstore market for such an affordable price.

OOH BRIGHT BRIGHT LIPSTICKS!
Unfortunately I'm on a lipstick ban right now but I am admiring Vivid Rose. It looks like a good dupe for MAC Impassioned. Not a fan of creamier formulas though - they tend to slip and slide around without lipliners, but that might just be me. Great reivew! xx

I'm pretty hooked on these as well. At first I felt bad for buying so many (especially when I have so many lipsticks already), but they are really something special for being relatively affordable :)
