Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Shocking Coral [Review]


Ever the Maybelline Vivids were launched here I'd been googling the shade swatches to find out which one to get for myself! When our Beauty Bloggers Secret Eid Swap was announced I immediately included a Maybelline Vivids in my wishlist, and to my utmost delight I got the most amazing color in the range thanks to my lovely swap partner Sidra <3

Maybelline Claims:
Now bright goes gorgeous, never garish.
Brighter color from our exclusive vivid pigments.
Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.
Come in 10 super saturated shades

My Thoughts:
Beauty Gurus and Bloggers the world over have raved and raved about this particular shade of the Maybelline Vivids, some have even termed it as the best color in the range!

The packaging is the same as the Maybelline Color Sensational line except for the cap which is a bright translucent orange in the case of the Vivids.

Shocking Coral is a beautiful coral color when you look at the lipstick bullet but it translates more pink on the lips with slight coral undertones. If you look at the lip swatch above you'll get what I'm trying to say, the bullet looks more coral right? I feel the sticker at the bottom gives a more accurate representation of the color which appears on the lips.

It's extremely pigmented, you get a nice wash of color on the first swipe. In one coat it's more pink and less coral in subsequent coats it becomes a gorgeous NEON pink with the slightest coral undertones!

The texture is soft and smooth, it really glides onto the lips and gives a glossy finish to the pout; given that, the lipstick may slide a little if you're not too careful, the lips stay moisturized for as long as the lipstick starts to fade.
It loses it's vibrancy within a 2-3 hour period considering that it's a moisturizing formula, to keep the color popping you have to frequently touch-up.
Very comfortable to apply and wear; leaves behind a medium "pink" stain. Has a yummy smell, sort of like Vanilla, I sometimes wanna eat it!! 

Price and Availability:
Priced at PKR 750, available at Maybelline stands in supermarkets across the country, you can also get it from
I love it so much I might actually get another one for backup just in case :) you can also see me wearing it here!
