Wait… is this another lipstick post?
While on a totally unecessary spending spree (that I’ve probably talked about way too much) I noticed these new Maybelline Vivid Lipsticks and absolutely had to pick one up for myself because you all know how much I 1) love lipstick and 2) love BRIGHT lipstick. Clearly this product has my name written all over it.
I luckily found the display fully stocked so I had my pick of every color Maybelline offers. After spending several minutes contemplating my decision I finally went with Vivid Rose which is a bright pink/red combination that just screams “buy me now!”
I’m going to sum this product up in one word: OUTRAGEOUS. These are totally outrageous in a great way!
I have worn this to work a few times this week and let me tell you – I put it through one heck of a challenge. I work in a busy, upscale salon in New York City and work an average of 10-12 hours each day. I am constantly running around like a crazy person and talking non-stop so needless to say, my lip products (and makeup in general) need to LAST because I just don’t have time to be touching my makeup every hour or so.
I’m proud to say that I only touched up with this lipstick one time during a full shift! Isn’t that amazing! The Maybelline Vivid lipsticks wear incredibly well and more importantly, they wear off well so you never look crazy when your lipstick isn’t looking so fresh. You all know that look… spotty, smudged, and just overall “bleh.” I’m not a fan. I touched up about 6 hours after my initial application and it was only because I had just eaten lunch and figured I might as well refresh my makeup while I had the chance. I definitely didn’t need to touch it up at that time, though. How great is that?!
So anyway – I wore this a few times and got a ton of compliments from coworkers and clients alike! A few people called the color unique and said that they hadn’t seen anything like it before. I do think that this color is unique if nothing for its vivid nature so I was definitely pleased to hear that feedback from people at work. It just confirms that these products are great!
So what do you think about the new Maybelline Vivid line? Are you a fan of bright lipstick or do you stick to muted tones? Comment below and let me know!
Until next time 🙂
