The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipstick collection is a line of bright, neon lipsticks with great color payoff. I know that these kind of colors are more for summer, but I wanted to review them anyway. I got Shocking Coral before I started this website and I reviewed Electric Orange a while ago (I don't even want to look at how bad that post looks!) so I wanted to review them both. Shocking Coral is a bright warm pink and Electric Orange is a bright straight-up orange.
Shocking Coral & Electric Orange have the same rectangular tube and long lid that the other Color Sensational lipsticks have, but the Vivids line has a bright orange lid.
These colors may be intimidating for some people, especially Electric Orange, but I think they can be quite wearable when mixed with a nude lipstick or neutral gloss. I really like to sheer out Electric Orange and wear a peachy gloss on top. Just like the rest of the line of lipsticks, Shocking Coral and Electric Orange smell exactly like Play-doh.
Both of these lipsticks do not glide on very easily, as you can probably tell since the swatches are a little on the messier side. They aren't very creamy and they have a dry feel, but they are actually surprisingly comfortable on the lips. I am fine with the not perfect application, because these lipsticks have great color payoff and wear.
