I'm so in lovvvve with these lipsticks !!!
The colours are so pigmented, they glide on so smoothly, the texture is so smooth and creamy, so many colours to choose from and they smell really nice and modern kind of cocoanutty love it! Have tried high-end lipsticks and these ones are in my opinion better, they do not bleed AT ALL which is fantastic! they stay put on your lips really well, and the colour fades evenly throughout the day.
I have 5 shades to my collection so far:
Warm Me Up - a really natural Pinky Nude colour that looks so matte, chic and natural. (Noticed many places are not selling this shade anymore, and I think its not being continued. :-( Luckily I have three tubes and they have lasted me over 2 years).
Are-You-Ready - A classy, sexy vibrant Fire-engine Red which I love.
Pink Peony - A lovely, modern pearly frosty Pinky-Peachy colour that really complements a smokey eye.
Fuchsia - one of the new shades from the vivid's range I'm obsessed with. A really bright, hot Fuchsia Pink that really looks good with my pale skin, grey-blue eyes and naturally blonde hair.
Pink Pop - Another one of the vivid's really really bright neon pink that is so bright and amazing. It really suits ladys with darker skin ! You must have confidence in wearing this lipstick and its pretty out-there which I love
The only problem for me being a student in New Zealand these lipsticks are approx $20-$25 so collecting these is not a cheap hobby for kiwis. :-( Luckily though they last for ages so as long as you don't lose it in my mind its worth it. Its really handy that most supermarkets here sell these lipsticks.
Packaging of these lipsticks is study and makes a nice sound tube sound when you close them, I like how the lid is coloured and see-through, so you can see the silver tube through it. I've noticed the packaged pink pop lipstick Ive brought unlike the others has mirror on one end, I hope they start making them all like this - super handy for touch ups! :-)
Very impressed, good job Maybelline!

Usually these are around about $15 at target but I found them for $5 at a local chemist and they were 50% off, so only $2.50 which is amazing! There was only one shade left and it was #950 pink beam and it was a gorgeous light pink nude colour. I'm actually in love with it. It feels so soft and creamy. It's not sticky.Tthe colour although nude is quite pigmented and is so pretty! The packaging looks good too and I have had no faults with the packaging.It last a really long time too. I'm definitely going to go get some other shades because this is amazing! Best lip

So I work at a drs office, and this patient walks in who was of carribean decent and had brown skin. Her lipstick was bright pink and really popped. I complimented her and asked her the brand thinking she would say Mac or some other high end product. When she told me maybelline I was shocked!!! It was a wait for the Dr, she was there over an hour, when she was leaving her lipstick was still as vivid as when she walked in. Naturally I ran to target to get my fix and will forever be happy I did. This is the best lipstick Ever!!! The colors really Pop and the Lasting power is excellent. Even after eating or drinking it fades evenly. Currently I have 645 red revival, and 900 sugar plum. There's actually pics in my album of me wearing both :) I plan on getting ALL the shades, and at the price (under $7 at target) why the hell not!!!!

I have this lipstick in pink punch and pleasure me red and I love them. I like bright colours and these are! They are my favourites and I'm defiantly going to try more of the colours.

I have this lipstick in red and I absolutely adore it. Stays in place and lasts all day. I've used it several times so far and I would reccomend it to everyone.

I have this in two shades, my favorite is fuschia, I can't remember the exact name of the color, but it is fuschia with no shimmer. I love the texture and it lasts a pretty long time if you give it time to "set".
ETA: I just got this in Red Revival, it is the best red lipstick I have ever used. The color is a perfect cool red, and it stains very evenly. There is not even a hint of shimmer, and it feels like balm. It is my HG lipstick, I have to buy a few backups in case it gets discontinued.

I was looking for a cold-toned shade of red lipstick in which I wouldn't look like a clown and I bought this in shade #547 Pleasure Me Red. It looks so good, my teeth look whiter and I'm pretty pale. My hair is dark brown and it just looks too good, it's kind of a bluish-red, it's a really lovely color, not too screaming. It's not very long lasting, though. It is a little bit drying on the lips, but it helps if you use lip balm underneath. The packaging is actually nothing extraordinary and it's a bit difficult to apply straight from the bullet, I haven't tried it with a brush yet.

I love this lipstick! I bought it from a local Shop Rite in Coral Lustre and it's beautiful. It's my HG, mainly because it's the perfect everyday color. At first swipe it goes on sheer, but it's very buildable which makes it versatile when you want more coverage. It also lasts all through the day for me. I don't mind the smell, it's actually kind of fruity to me and I like it very much. I think one drawback would be some of the glitter/shimmer stuff in the formula, which makes it dry sometimes and a little rough to apply(as is typical with glitter products) I won't let that affect my rating as I don't really mind it that much at all.
I'm about halfway through the tube and I plan to buy other colors when I have the chance.

My shade: 630 Velvet Beige
Good colour payoff.
Not too drying.
Lasts as long as a normal lipstick.
Smells slightly odd.

Love the color but it's not moist enough as I have naturally dry lips. And it's not worth the price, I got this for about $20 here in Switzerland(I know the price is crazy here!), really not worth it. Although it doesn't work bad on me.. Just average, nothing special. I guess I'll find something better. xD

For some reason, not many too people are fond of Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipstick line... For me I really like it! It doesn't settle into creases and the color is pretty long lasting for a drugstore brand. I don't find the formula too drying at all but pretty moisturizing compared to most. Yes, you still need to put lip balm on beforehand but it is pretty brainless, that it is a must. I have been repurchasing Warm Me Up (Nude pink, more blueish pink toned) and Totally Toffee (Nude pink, more brown toned) for years!
Cheap! Around $5
Doesn't settle into creases
Large selection of colors
Not as long lasting as high-end brands
Matte color may seem unnatural
People might find it to smell or taste weird? I don't personally mind...
Contains Alumina and Aluminum Hydroxide (for the amazing consistency) :(
Would I repurchase?
Yes, I am in love with Warm Me Up and Totally Toffee!!!

Pretty much a perfect drugstore lipstick. Creamy, long-lasting, great colour choices. I'm very pale but I like a deep colour lipstick and my choices from each of the four colour groups were - Red Revival, Warm Me Up, Party Pink and best of all, Plum Perfect.

This lipstick has an odd smell, sort of like the smell of clay, although it doesn't really stay around after you apply it and is taste-free thankfully. However it did irritate my lips a little, so if you are sensitive, this may not be for you. It is very long wearing, but has a fairly dry texture and is not the smoothest or easiest to apply. Overall, I was not a fan.

This is a review for the limited edition Fall 2012 Color Sensational lipstick, In Style Sienna.
It is a brownish-burgandy shade with subtle greenish shimmer. I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle in the summer). This, when swiped once, makes for a very nice evening lipstick for fall. The shade tone is just right to compliment cool tones. Not too purplish burgandy, not too brownish.

I have this in 815 Tenacious Taupe and I love it! too bad its Limited Edition (Fall 2012 Scene on the Runway) collection. I need to get back ups. This is the perfect nude lipstick for my medium skin tone, it feels moisturizing, creamy, smooth, no yucky smell & the color is opaque. It really shows well on my lips without making me look dead. I am surprised I like this more than my MAC nude lipsticks.

I have this in 547 - Pleasure Me Red and 325 - Cinnamon stick
I love both colours. They are long lasting, smell nice, go on smoothly and both have been complimented. They have a nice subtle sheen to them, not 'shiny' but enough to make your lips look soft and full. They are available pretty cheaply online and I'd say its definitely worth a try!!

i have this lipstick in 547 Pleasure Me Red and 143 Pink Fizz and i love them both. it lasts almost all day or night and only occasionally needs to be touched up. its creamy and soft to wear and has a nice shine to it.

I love this lipstick It feels good looks great on my skin tone.
I pair it with a lip gloss and it comes off looking like a stain.

I bought this in 35 pink peony. It is a very pigmented hot pink color. It would be nice except its so shimmery, it's almost frosty. It is very drying and it does not last long at all. It wears off unevenly too. It makes my lips look thin and wrinkly.. :( I really don't like it. I gave it 2 lipsticks because the actual pink color is gorgeous.

I searched all over the place for these once I heard people on youtube rave about them. I should have saved my money! I purchased the porcelain pink lipstick. It smells worce than crayons, the color pay off looks cakey and almost like the play makeup you had as a kid. My lips felt extremely dry there was no mostiure pay off at all. I wouldn't even want to exchange it for another color it is so horrible.
