Maybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lip ColorMaybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color ($6) is a vibrant fuchsia pink with a creamy, balm-like finish. It's fairly pink for a lipstick named 'Hot Plum', so if you're expecting something more plum/purple, this won't be it. It's really gorgeous never-the-less, and if you love bright, cool-toned pinks, you'll love this lipstick.
The formula is wonderful. The lipstick applies smoothly and the color is almost opaque in one pass. It's also hydrating enough where I don't need to apply a lip balm first, though I wouldn't particularly consider it to be moisturizing (very few lipsticks are with my dry lips). It's lightweight, has a little slip to it and feels good on the lips.
What's impressive is the lasting power. The color stays strong for several hours and leaves a lingering bright pink stain behind on the lips once most of the lipstick wears off.
Would I recommend? Heck yes! I want every single shade in the Vivids line. They're all beautiful! If you want to see swatches of every shade, check out Beautezine.
Maybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick on my lips
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Vivids? Any favorites?
- Very bright, opaque color
- Lightweight and comfortable on the lips
- Cute lightweight packaging - perhaps a little bulky, but I like the neon cap and silver tube.
- Great price - affordable
- I'm not a fan of the scent of Maybelline lipsticks - I wish they were unscented. This usually keeps me from purchasing Maybelline lipsticks.
