Whilst browsing the shelves of Superdrug, during my ritual late night Thursday shopping, these little pretties stopped me in my tracks - Maybelline Coloursensational Vivids. I am m sure these are no stranger to your shopping trolley!
I picked up 916 - Neon Red & 910 - Shocking Coral, they are absolutely gorgeous, so vibrant the pigmentation is stunning. The packaging Maybelline have used instantly took my eye with their see through neon lids and silver bullet tubing. Talk about bright! Extremely striking - for a few moments I wondered whether they would be a little garish, but this isn't the case at all. The Maybelline Colorsenational range are definitely this Spring/Summers must have - nothing better than a bold lip to finish off your look, whether it is day or night.
These smell lovely, creamy in texture, I would recommend moisturising or using a lip scrub before hand to reap the full benefits of these - if your lips are a bit dry they will emphasise the small lines/cracks.
The colours are very easy to work with whether you are after the bright bold full lip or something a little subtle, it is build able. If you want just a tint, enough to highlight your lips, use your finger or a small brush to lightly dab on for the toned down look.
Neon Red - 916 has quite an orangey tone through it and 910 - Shocking Coral is very pinky. I can't resist a red or coral lipstick, by far my favourites.
I was also very impressed by the durability of these, they lasted hours - not a word of a lie. Obviously, they will fade slightly if you have something to drink but still very eye catching.
I am now really excited about picking up the Colour Whisper Lipstick, I don't have any of them yet.
Have you tried these? what do you think?
