Maybelline’s newest range of lippies are their Colour Sensational Vivids. They’ve been a bit slow to pick up on the bright lip trend, which has been around for years now, and have continuously brought out the same old glossy neutrals, so we’re pleased they’ve finally cottoned on!

We chose the shade Neon Red, but it was hard to pick out of all the fantastic options! They’re all really bright and the silver tubes make the colours pop even more. Neon Red is, as the name suggests, a bright red, with orange undertones. It’s a universally flattering shade, and being so vibrant it helps make skin and eyes look bright and healthy. The formula is slightly sheer, so it took us a couple of coats to build up to the intensity of the bullet itself, and we blotted after each application to keep it satiny, rather than the ever so slightly oily finish it had by itself. With Lipcote it lasted us a good 8 hours of eating and nattering away! The packaging is ok, and for this red one we think it works great having the clear red lid that covers most of the tube, but as the lids are red for all of the shades, we think it would have made more sense matching the lids to the lipsticks inside.

All in all we’re loving this lippie, and are going to be pairing it with bright fuchsia nails this weekend for a cool neon clash! And just a reminder that we’re updating our competitions, so this isn’t available to win this week, but if you keep a look out you’ll see it included in a bumper beauty giveaway with loads of other goodies when our new competition format arrives!

Love, Lipcote x
