Review: Maybelline Vivids in Shocking Coral (870) and Vibrant Mandarin (885)

, , , ,

It's finally spring and I'm on a vibrants kick! As I'm slowly transitioning to my low buy, I've started to shop my stash to see what I've glossed over in winter. After looking through, it seems I've neglected these two lovely colors for too long.

Maybelline Color Sensationals Vivids Lipcolor are $7.49 at drugstores and Ulta, so they're priced like other drugstore lipsticks. Drugstores occasionally have BOGO 50% off or 40% off entire lines, so they become even more affordable.

These lipsticks are very vibrant, as you can see in the swatches, and the staying power is not too shabby. In order to make these lipsticks stay on longer, I usually put the lipcolor on, blot, pat it on again, and cover my lips with a tissue while I dust them with setting powder.

Sometimes I do put gloss on over these lipsticks, as they do have a satin-y matte finish, but that affects the longevity of the lipstick quite negatively, so I don't do it often. I'm more of a mattes kind of gal anyways.

 I do love these two very much, and I'm thinking about maybe getting the Maybelline Vivids in Brazen Berry, only when it's on sale though! What are your thoughts on these lippies?

See you next time!
