This is a review for shocking coral (910). I generally wear Coral Crush in the regular colour sensationals, but the store was out so I picked this one up instead.
The GOOD: Like Coral Crush, I would say this is a pink toned coral, making it a lot more wearable. The colour is, as the name implies, very bright. It goes on faily smoothly, has a nice satin finish and lasts 3-4 hours (without eating)
The BAD: if you lips are dry or cracked this will totally show that, packaging is nothing special. It's a bit OTT for everyday wear.
If you want something that really "pops" I recomend this. Wear with flushed cheeks and natural eyes.

Absolute rubbish. I have Shocking Coral and the finish is patchy, uneven, drying and highlights any dryness on the lip. It is near impossible to get right and wearabilty is zero.
If you are used to high end quality (YSL, Dior, Guerlain and even the mid range goodies like MAC or Clinique) then don't even bother. The worst lipstick I've ever bought.

I LOVE these. The colors are amazing, they wear a good five hours on me, and the texture is nice. These are every bit as good as high end lipsticks. I bought four and so far have worn and love Pink Pop and Hot Plum.

Great lipstick! I managed to pick up two of these at Chemist Warehouse for 8AUD. Less than half price (YAY), so i picked up pink pop and shocking coral. I picked them up because they are right alley. the formula is amazing, it applies quite smoothly and dosent tug or anything. pigmentation is excellent, leaves a satin finish on the lips. but, if you want to sheer it out just a little, i advise putting some vaso underneath and then applying it, as it makes it less pigmented and more shiny.
Pink pop is a light bubblegum pink with small shimmer particles. Not as obnoxious as mac saint germain, as it is not as pigmented. I swatched it against 'Rimmel Pink Blush' and it is just that little bit darker.
Shocking Coral is truly a wonderful coral shade, which leans more to the pinkier side. If i had to compare, it would be a solid dupe to mac impassioned, which my mum has.
Overall, great lipstickss for the price if you snag them on a BOGF offer.

This is a beautiful, blue based red. The color is amazing and easy to build on. You truly need to exfoliate before you apply for maximal effect. Don't forget this.
I like to push the color into my lips with my pinkie as opposed to applying from the tube. This leaves my lips feeling very natural and great.
I will definitely be buy this again!

I was ECSTATIC when I discovered that they sold these here! Foreign makeup usually takes about 5 years after everyone else around the world is enjoying it to finally bump its way into the Spanish market (if it ever does at all), especially out here far away from major urban centres, where I live. I usually only use MAC lipsticks because I have super dry, always chapped lips and MAC is the ONLY brand I can use that doesn't give me dry, chapped lips. I can't even use other high end brands. Anyways, I wanted something with vivid and vibrant COLOUR without having to shell out MAC prices. I was so HAPPY to find these lipsticks, I got 2, Pink Pop and Fuchsia Flash, since they say that Fuchsia Flash is a dupe for MAC's Candy Yum Yum which I've always wanted. I haven't tried it yet, but I tried the Pink Pop. I LOVEEEEEEEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It gives you the perfect pop of colour that really lifts up your face, especially with neutral makeup. It went on really smoothly, and I don't use lip brushes. I didn't use lip liner either, because I usually put on lipstick on the bus on the way to work. Not the best place for doing your makeup lol. Just a few swipes gave me super colour and it didn't bleed. I do use a lip balm underneath, of course, how could I avoid that with the Saharan lips that I have? However a bit bummed that I can't really use this lipstick where I work (low level position in a super conservative, traditional, family-run company). Not the lipstick's fault, of course. I had to wipe most of it off in order to look presentable at work, and make it look like a stain. But the colour and opacity were GREAT, and I am so looking forward to being able to use these lipsticks when I go out for FUN (as opposed to work).

These are going back. I needed a little bit of springtime color lift so because they are so highly rated here, I bought two, On Fire Red and Pink Pop. If the red is any indication, these aren't much different from cheap $1 lipstick. The texture is waxy, they bled, and there isn't any superamped vividness/color pigment. SO disappointing. They were buy one get second at 50% off at the already overpriced CVS so in a down moment I thought, yeah. Alas, no. Back to Revlon, Besame, MAC and Chanel for me.

I am so smitten with these lipsticks. With hundreds of high end lip products in my stash, I *may* possibley love these more. They are creamy, pigmented, and feel great on my lips. The finish is smooth without slipping and bleeding out of the lip line and these last great on my lips. I've done individual reviews for the shades I purchased, but overall, my one complaint is that these are not as true to color as I would have liked. I don't mean they're sheer, I mean they pull more pink than the color in the tube. Still, I love them. Drugstore lipsticks are really coming a long way.

I bought this as a fun shade to wear on vacation. Since I'm so pale, I wouldn't normally go for such a bold color, but I have heard people rave about these, and I saw them at the store and just couldn't resist. I got "Vivid Rose", which is a hot pink shade. The actual product itself was pretty standard, not really anything to write home about, but the colour was gorgeous! It was vibrant without being fake-looking, and the intesity was nicely buildable so you could go from a sheer wash of color to an opaque stain.

I bought a bunch of these lipsticks ordered from the USA based on positive reviews. A big risk, but I'm so glad I did! They are amazing. I have really dry lips, these don't aggravate them and keep them quite moisturized, and the lasting power is superb. Definitely on par with - or perhaps even better than - my beloved MAC lippies. The colours themselves attract so many compliments because they are just perfectly bold, bright and saturated. Can't recommend these enough. Also they have two awesome purples in the range, and my stars if I don't love me some purple lipstick. <3

I purchased several of the Vivid lipsticks. I purchased the following: Electric Orange 800, Vivid mandarin 885,Neon Red 890 and On Fire Red 895. Overall, these lipsticks are very moisturizing but for me- moisturizing lipsticks means I will be re applying often throughout the day- and I did. Did I think they were " Vivid" not really. Perhaps its because I am a NC 50 woman - who knows.. All I know is I have worn brighter, bolder lipsticks than these. Neon Red and On Fire Red were very similar on my skin tone. I almost could not tell them apart. Would I buy any more- no. Would I wear them -only if I want a dewy lip look -that mean not very often. The grade I give them- B-

I got this colour in "fuschia flash" from a friend who initially bought it for herself, but found it "far too pink" and thought I might be able to repurpose it. Given it's incredibly vibrant colour, I thought I might just have to throw it out, but I only had to use it once to discover that it's likely my favourite pink lipstick I've ever used.
It is a very eye-catching shade, but it's muted enough that you don't get the tacky-Barbie effect from it. It looks great with my blonde hair (which was what I was initially worried about -- I have blonde hair and slightly yellow skin, but I don't get the 'fake' look at all with it.)
It wears great as well, although I would say my one beef with it is that it doesn't survive food or drink wear-and-tear all too well if you haven't been wearing it for a while before you eat. On an average day, however, I'll just carry this with me and not have to apply it more than one, or maybe two, extra time(s.) It doesn't dry your lips out, which is a plus for me, as my lips are almost always chapped. The colour won't "sink into" your lips if your lips are already chapped when you wear it, either.
One thing that's great about this lipstick is that it's easy to control the colour -- if you just want a subtle pink, it's easy to just swipe it on and be done, although you can easily "add" more, without it being waxy and hard to build up.
The packaging is nice as well. It's nothing fancy, but it actually stays closed in my purse and I don't fear that the lipstick will break when I open it (as that happens far too often.)
Overall, the only complaint is it's lack of resillience against food and drink. I'll definitely be buying this again, and I might even get another colour or two.

Picked this up in vibrant mandarin. Actually thought it was a balm type. It smells strange, not a fan of plastic robot grandma crayon. But it is so nice and smooth and sheer enough that u can't mess up an on the go application. Beautiful color payoff and not drying which is a huge plus in my book as my lips react badly even to balms like the revlon lip butters. I plan to pick up a few more since they are so cheap and the colors look perfect for spring and summer.
Update: went crazy and swapped/bought more:
Fire red: way too many compliments for me to handle. Creamiest red that doesn't bleed or require crazy maintenance
Pink pop: 80s baby prostitute. Very wild color great for theme parties but my teeth don't look very brilliant
Shocking coral: love the color, formula is a little more drying than others
Electric orange: beautiful for summer

I love some of these lipsticks, others, not so much. Some seem almost too pigmented and are hard to wear. You really need to exfoliate your lips and I moisturize with balm prior to application. I would buy them again, but I can`t see myself running out of any of them any time soon. Not my every day lippies, but great for long lasting night time wear. My one beef is the colour of the packaging...it looks cheap imo, I hate it! Here is a by colour breakdown.
Pink Pop: This is hard to wear imo, too pigmented, slightly drying, settles into fine lines. Shows up any dryness of your lips
Fuchsia Flash: Very pretty, easier on the eye than Pink Pop. Slightly sheer, moist, good staying power.
Vivid Rose: Likely my favorite. An intense reddish hot pink, very long wearing, stains lips evenly, smooth, moist,pigmented, just a beautiful lipstick.
Hot Plum: Another wower, similar to the Fuchsia Flash but leans a bit more purple. Moist, long wearing, pigmented, very pretty on cool toned skin.
Brazen Berry: Goes on a little more pink than it looks in the tube, surprisingly easy to pull off on my fair cool skin, slightly more sheer than most of the colours. Long wearing, stains lips evenly,moist. Just gorgeous.
Maybelline really needs to seal their lipsticks. It`s a PITA to have to go through half the rack to find one that hasn`t been opened and swatched. Very annoying.

I have Shocking Coral, Vivid Rose, Hot Plum and Brazen Berry. I like these! Brazen Berry is my favorite and leaves a nice stain. I like purples. Hot Plum is more of a bright reddish plum. I have to agree with other reviewers about shocking coral. (What is the difference between this and Coral Crush?) It is out of my comfort zone to wear corals as most pull orange on me but this pull more pink and sheer. I don't mind, because I can build it up. Vivid Rose, whooo boy, this is bright! But I love it! It brightens up my face and also leaves a nice stain. These don't dry my lips and I like the scent and taste, as I have the other CS colors in the original line. Now, to find the Not so Red that isn't compromised and used, as I need a red!

I don't HATE this lipstick, but I don't like it. I picked this up in shocking coral because the colour looked beautiful, but it's different on my lips. Maybe it's just me, but it wasn't true to colour- it LOOKED coral but went on pink. Second, you should know that these, though bright, are actually kind of sheer. The formula isn't drying and also isn't long lasting, maybe an hour or two, but it settled into cracks and lines that I didn't even know I had as soon as I put it on, even over a balm and a liner. It has a strange sent, kind of vanilla-y sweet, that I am personally not bothered by, but it may be a downside to some. The packaging was awful- the lid just fell right off and I had to go through a bunch in the store before I found one that wasn't untouched, so beware before you buy! I really wanted to love these because of the gorgeous colours but I just couldn't do it! I hope these work out best for some others.

I bought this color in Shocking Coral and the color is BRIGHT. I wasn't expecting it. The packaging is bad and you should check if it's unused before purchasing. I would buy this product again but maybe in a lighter color.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I was excited to try these. I bought electric orange and pink pop.
cons-they're sheer.not vivid at all according to the name.they're not really true to color on the lips.maybe its just these colors,but i'm not buying any others.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Wow! I love these!
I have always been a very pink or coral lipstick kinda girl and I was too shy to venture into bold bright colours but I am so glad I am finally coming out of my shell.
The lipsticks are so creamy and intense! I swatched Hot Plum and knew I had to have it. It's a deep flushia with berry undertones and looks so pretty on - nothing garish I promise.
The only complaint I have is the packaging. It's not sealed so I found so many non-testers already used. Not great but it's stunning pigmentation and truthfully leaves a stain on your lips. The formula is not drying either I find.
I can't wait to try Vibrant Madarin or a red too!

ive found it pretty hard to find lipstick from department stores that i like. but last night i found this at walmart and instantly knew i wanted to try them out because the colors were bold and bright(id been looking at similar colors at MAC). i got the hot plum and fuchsia flash, (wearing hot plum today!), the colors are amazing, has stayed bright all morning and hasnt dried out my lips at all! this is the best makeup find ive had in a while and it didnt cost an arm and a leg to get a great product. and its a great way to put some color into this awful winter weather!
im going to try to get my hands on the brazen berry next!
