I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so excited about a full-blown bright lipstick. In the past year, I’ve been obsessing mainly over somewhat sheer, creamy and moisturizing lip products like Revlon Lip Butters, L’Oreal Caresse Lipsticks and Clinique Chubby Sticks, but I haven’t really worn any strongly pigmented bold lipsticks in quite a while. Until now.
The lipstick I’ve been obsessing over for the past month is Maybelline’s ‘Shocking Coral‘ from their Color Sensational Vivids line. As the name sugests, the colour is very out there. It is strong and vibrant, which makes it perfect for summer. The swatch here looks very coral, but on my lips the shade actually looks a bit more pink. You’ll be able to see that in tomorrow’s post/video.
The lipstick has a creamy formula that doesn’t dry out your lips. The application is very smooth, and the lipstick continues to feel smooth on your lips while you’re wearing it. Also, it is VERY long-lasting and doesn’t budge. But when it does fade away eventually, it leaves your lips with a very strong matte-like stain.
I can totally see why this lipstick is so popular at the moment. It really combines all the best qualities a bold lipstick can have, but to experience it in all its glory, make sure that your lips are thoroughly exfoliated before applying it. This little baby sticks to every single little flake you might have!
