As you may know, the other day I took advantage of Boots’ 3 for 2 offer and treated myself to a couple of Maybelline Kohl Liners and this Color Sensational lipstick in Neon Red.
This colour instantly jumped out at me as it was so vibrant and bright. I have a few red lipsticks but they are either more of a ‘true’ letter box red, or deeper burgundy reds. This is more of an orangy tomato red, with a fantastic intensity and shine.
I couldn’t find too much information online about these lipsticks, Maybelline describes them like this: ‘Exclusive vivid colours are brighter – Honey nectar formula nourishes lips’ And that’s about it! The Vivid range of Color Sensational Lipsticks includes loads of gorgeous bright colours, I’d really like to try Brazen Berry too, which is a bright purple 🙂
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this lipstick as I don’t like to get my hopes up, especially with a brand I have been disappointed with before. Surprisingly though I was very impressed! This lipstick was a dream to apply, it has a very smooth and creamy texture, like nothing I’ve tried before in fact. The texture was verging on a gloss, but without the stickiness. The colour applied true to how it appears in the bullet, and had fantastic pigmentation and staying power.
I usually shy away from orange hues, but I love this lipstick! It’s just the right shade of red-orange for me 😉
Have you tried Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipsticks?
