I have literally been dying to share these amazing lipsticks with you.
Originally i had seen that these were available only in the US and of course was pretty upset i would have to wait a month or 2 for them to arrive in the UK, until the day later popped into my local Superdrug and saw these 4 shades on display, i must admit i did let out a little squeal!! We all know i love lipsticks and we all know i love highstreet/drugstore make-up so these little gems have my name written all over them.
So come on Sophie just get on with what they are....
Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids
A new line of incredibly bright and pigmented lipsticks added to the ever famous Colour Sensational line.
Love the Colour Sensational Line? You will be sure to fall in love with the Vivids.
The Vivids line has been treated to a new technology using neon coated pigments which produce Colour Sensational's brightest most vibrant colour ever. What is also great is that they contain honey nectar which helps to keep lips feeling smooth, never dry or leave a chalky or cakey finish.
The packaging is the same as the original Colour Sensational line but they have just turned it up a notch with the colour of the packaging, bright neon see through orange. So bright and eye catching and i absolutely love it.
In the US there is 10 shades available and currently in the UK i believe there is 5. The only shade i don't have is Electric Orange as the colour was just definitely not for me, a pure bright vivid true orange.
These really do glide onto the lips beautifully and have a slight sheen texture, which makes them comfortable and wearable while still providing great longevity. The colour pay off really is out of this world, i literally can't fault it (other than when you do swatch them on your hand and they leave a slight stain) Out of the 5 shades available i am really impressed with the range of colours and really love each one, now just fingers crossed we eventually get all the colours available as the lighter pinks look stunning! What i really love most is that the colours are so gorgeous and bright but because they contain the honey nectar and are so moisturising you don't have to be so careful with applying them and can easily touch up without a mirror, with some bright lipsticks i really worry that they have ended half way up my cheek but not with these!
I am so super happy that Maybelline are taking this direction, its about time that highstreet/drugstore make-up really stepped it up and i think these bad boys will really fly off the shelves and make people realise that you really can find some gems in the drugstore. I wouldn't say these were for the nude lovers and they are very bright and neon but if that's what you love and like these must be yours!
I can't wait for the Spring so i can start rocking these daily. I will of course do some photos of me wearing each shade in due course, I'm currently suffering the flu so lets just keep it at that.
Please check these out if you haven't already you honestly will not be disappointed. Its slightly worrying how over excited i can get over a lipstick geeeeeez!
I actually can't seem to find them on the Superdrug website however they are here on the Boots website RRP £7.19 also with an offer of buy 1 get 2nd half price!
Do these excite you? Have you tried them yet?
