Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids | REVIEW

I bought this Maybelline lipstick on a mad swatching session with my fellow beauty obsessed friend. I had swatched a pretty lipstick in MAC (I can't remember the name!) and was on the hunt for a drugstore alternative. Enter: 'Shocking Coral' from the Color Sensational Vivids range. And, unsurprisingly, this has rapidly risen to the top of my favourite lipsticks list. It's so, so pigmented, leaving a gorgeous bright pop of colour that stays on your lips for hours, and is the most beautiful coral-pink shade for summer. It's only downside is that it can be slightly drying so make sure your lips are exfoliated and prepped with a bit of balm before applying and you'll be fine! I've found this lipstick to be so versatile too: it works straight from the bullet for full impact, over balm for a diluted colour, and dabbed on with my finger for a pinch of colour. I'm not wild about the packaging but I can overlook that for such a gorgeous product. I'm glad I saved money on the MAC one and got this instead!
