Maybelline Vivid Rose Color Sensational Lipstick Review

When I first saw this lipstick I was definitely intimidated. 
I remember seeing the Vivid Collection when they first started appearing at drugstores and told me friend, "WOW now those are bright!"

I decided not to pick up any of the Vivid lipsticks as I thought they would not be wearable.
Little did I know.

After seeing these everywhere on the internet I decided I needed to pick one up to try. 

I went with Vivid Rose and I'm super happy with my selection.

Vivid Rose is a medium pink with warm undertones. It has no shimmer but the lipstick has a nice sheen to it. 

The name of this collection is truly accurate. Vivid Rose is highly pigmented. No need to build up the colour. Even with it being so opaque it isn't drying on the lips. This wears comfortably without drying them or settling in fine lines. Also this lipstick stays in place. I know with a lipstick this bright one may worry about it moving around or bleeding. I had no problem with this. Even without a lip liner this lipstick did not bleed. 

The only downside I find with Vivid Rose is the smell. To me it smells like play-doh. But the smell doesn't linger too much on the lips so this isn't too big of a problem.

Overall, Vivid Rose is a great lipstick for spring and summer. It's opaque, long lasting, and comfortable to wear. Highly recommend this lipstick! I have my eye on Shocking Coral next!

Have a great day!
