First Impression: New Maybelline Vivids

Products from 2013 are already popping up in various stores. My recent trip to Walmart ended up in finding various products that are not technically released until January, and yet there they were! One of these finds is the new Maybelline Vivids lip colors. I picked up four of the shades. For my first thoughts on these lip colors stick around :)




I purchased the colors(in order from left to right):
 Shocking Coral, Electric Orange, Vibrant Mandarin, and Brazen Berry.



First Impression:

I was pleasantly surprised to find that these colors are actually VIVID. I was hoping I would not be disappointed by the promise of vivid color, but for the most part these do deliver a great color payoff. I am very glad these are not bright-looking with sheer color and that they actually are colorful! As you can see, I choose three of the orange toned lipsticks. Shocking Coral is a very slightly neon pinky-coral. Electric Orange is a bright true orange. Vivid Mandarin in a red-toned coral. All three have a great color payoff and have a nice silky texture.
The fourth color I chose was a purple lipstick, naturally. I am a purple lipstick junkie! Brazen Berry looks very purple in the tube, and I was surprised to find that this is a very soft purple color. This is both bad and good. It is bad because it is not as vivid in color as the other shades. It is good because this soft purple that is not too overwhelming.

The only other notable aspect of these lipsticks is their smell. These smell exactly like the Maybelline Sensational lipsticks, and I am not a huge fan of the smell. It is a tropical scent which should be fine, but for some reason it bothers me. It is quite overpowering though, so if you are sensitive to scents you might want to be way of these.

  2. These are so pretty! Great colour choices. I too love purple, so I'd probably get that one anyway, despite not being as bright as the others.

  6. Wow, the pigment on these look amazing! Somehow I wish the tubes were the same colour as the lipsticks though, so that they'd be easier to identify.

    1. Yes! I think that would have been better too. Although I think they didn't because they already have the same lipstick tubes with different colors to separate the various lipstick ranges that Maybelline has.
