REVIEW: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks in Shocking Coral and Vivid Rose

I love sporting a bright lip! I think it instantly makes the face look more beautiful and glam. Today, I'm going to be reviewing the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Shocking Coral and Vivid Rose. 

WHAT IT CLAIMS: Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish, in 8 super saturated lip shades. Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar. 

WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT: First of all, the packaging is really sturdy and eye catching. I can easily spot these in my huge collection of lipsticks. However, I'm not a huge fan of the orange tops as it makes it impossible to differentiate between the colors without looking at the bottom and going through the lipsticks. 

Now, on the lipsticks themselves. Shocking Coral is indeed a very bright coral with warm undertones. Vivid Rose is a stunning rosy pink with red undertones and a slight sheen. I personally like the color of Vivid Rose better as I think it looks more flattering on me.

Both of these lipsticks were super comfortable to wear. They didn't dry out my lips, accentuate any dry patches, feather or bleed. I did wear a lip liner to prevent feathering and bleeding, though. They go on very smoothly and they didn't tug at my lips at all. 

The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids are very long lasting. Both the lipstick last for up to 5 hours and even leave a slight stain behind after they've faded.

These lipsticks are vanilla scented- think of the MAC lipsticks. The scent is a bit strong and you can still smell it once the lipstick is on your lips. I personally find the scent appealing, but I know that some people might find it a bit unpleasant.
