I have found thee brightest lipsticks known to man (or woman as the case may be)! These are the new Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivid lipsticks, I have three in the colours "Shocking Coral", "Neon Red" and "Fuchsia Flash" (listed in order as they appear below).
I'm not always brave when it comes to lip colours, I think it would scare the mums on the school run, but I'm trying to be more adventurous and test colours out to see what works for me and suits me best. So I chucked myself in at the deep end and bought these 3 bad boys (£7.99 at Boots/Superdrug).
Shocking Coral is a bright but pastelly orange if that makes sense. This is the one I'm most afraid of as I think corals can be hard to pull off. Neon red is exactly what it says on the tin, although in my swatch below it appears more orange than in real life. Fuchsia Flash is a bright bright pink which reminds me of the colour all my Barbies used to wear. If its good enough for Barbie...!
You can see how strong the colours come out below which is brilliant pigmentation, the formula is really creamy, but it lasts well and doesn't bleed or move around. The only thing I would say is that you definitely need a lip brush to apply these colours, they stand out so much that any minor mistakes will be noticeable. There are other colours in the range which weren't on the stand at the time I bought these but I want the bright pinky purple too. What do you think of them? I think they're a welcome fun addition to my makeup bag and I can't wait to wear them if/when the weather brightens up a bit...maybe even in public if I'm brave enough!
Thanks for reading, Love Steph xxx
