I like that this lipstick is pure color, and not glittery and slimey. It comes out matte and tho the shades are very bright, you can apply very little and dilute the brightness. I apply very little color on my inner, lower lip and spread it around by smacking my lips together. It's great because the color is so pure that you still have the color even tho it's toned down. I have olive-tone, Asian skin which gets easily tan during the summer months. I love that you can control the brightness very easily and the color lasts ok. It's also great because it doesn't dry out my lips. It doesn't moisturize either but that's why you buy lip balm. And it doesn't have a taste.
These have become my favorite lipsticks since I bought them and I'm a huge lipstick addict! I bought Fuchsia Flash,Shocking Coral and Vivid Rose and they have all left me speechless! I love their texture and their smell,plus they have great longevity and price. Only disadvantage is that while they're very sheer and shiny,they tend to dry my lips a little bit,so remember to moisturize your lips well before applying them! A specific thing I want to point out is their amazing shades,literally vivid! Unfortunately,only 6 of the 10 shades were released in my country,so I didn't get to try Infrared,Brazen Berry,Hot Plum and Pink Pop,but I fathom they'd be the colors I wouldn't have liked that much :Ρ . Anyway,fantastic bright colors especially for the summer, I totally recommend them :)
I have several of the shades from this collection and quite frankly they have been getting more play than my beloved MAC lippies. Affordable and beautiful I pray that Maybelline doesnt discontinue and they release new shades in the near future.
Very nice lipsticks! Honestly this is the only lipstick that i keep using everyday! Colors are so gorgeous.. Super pigmented and buttery.. I dont even use a lipgloss on top of it. I own two right now and i'm probably going to get all of them!
I have been hearing about these everywhere. I went to Rite-Aid today and went straight to the clearance (as always). I was so freaking excited when I saw one of these bad boys back there. I got "Infra-Red" for $3! Holy cow this is now my FAVORITE red! Since I never payed any attention to these I had no idea this one is Limited Edition. Looks like I am going back tomorrow to get the rest!!!
Oh my God.
Out of all the new products I've tried this year, this is probably my favorite. As a self proclaimed lipstick addict I was ecstatic to bring these home.
I bought two of them, Shocking Coral and Vibrant Mandarin. Next time I'm at a place that sells makeup I plan to bring home even more because I can't get enough of these bright colors.
Long lasting, great price, clean packaging, and amazing color.
BUT, make sure you put some lip balm (I suggest Burt's Bees Mango Lip Balm) on and let it sit for 5 or so minutes before putting the lipstick on. Given the bright colors, the product will bring out every little flaw.
These are BOSS, man. The formula is awesome--smooth, creamy, super pigmented, not too thick, and doesn't dry my lips or settle in lines. And the shades are absolutely gorg. I own Vivid Rose (bright warm-toned pink), Shocking Coral (which isn't really a coral at all, but rather a brightish warm pink--warmer than Vivid Rose but not enough orange to dub it a coral shade. It's clearly a pink shade), and Electric Orange (bright in-your-face orange). I plan on picking up Vibrant Mandarin (bright orange-tinged red that reminds me of MAC Lady Danger) as well. I would prefer it if these were matte, but the satin finish isn't bad, and I can easily lightly blot it for less shine. My only gripe is the packaging...It's your standard cheap-looking Maybelline lipstick case, and it's not of good quality either. I once pulled open the cap and the inner part of the tube (the part where the actual lipstick is) came flying out. But other than that, these lippies are fantastic, and cheap too. Would I repurchase? Yes
I brought this in rosy dream, I love the colour so beautiful. Cons are it doesn't have a lot of staying powder, even when over foundation lips and under clear powder I am still puting more on every few hours. But I will continue to repurchase simply because I am in love with the rosy dream colour. Considering trying out more colours once I get my braces off (red lipstick+braces=ugly) but for now this is the only colour I can suit. So barbie pink makes me feel so pretty!
I wish the packaging was a little more secure. No plastic wrapping makes me frown a bit.
I snagged the On Fire red a few weeks ago. I am always on the look out for a blue based red that goes with my pale visage. It's the goth in me, I can't help it. I finally started wearing red lipstick last year and I haven't looked back, but I digress.
These lipsticks are fantastic. Because they are so bright, lip exfoliation is a must but other than that, they wear well, leaving a stain before disappearing at the end of the day. Easy to reapply, and absolutely fun to wear out paired with a neutral eye.
I love the colors they are so rich and pigmented
