Maybelline Vivids Lipstick Swatches & Target Haul


Hey everyone! I recently went to Target to pick up some new Spring drugstore makeup releases which I've been so excited to try. I grabbed a few lipsticks, an eyeliner, and even a new mascara so check out my entire haul below including lip swatches of the new Maybelline Vivids lipsticks!

Out of this whole haul, the stars of the show are obviously the Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids lipsticks which are creamy and extremely pigmented. Since these colors are so fun and dramatic, I wanted to swatch the three I picked up for you. 

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Neon Red

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Hot Plum

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash

And because I always find full-face pics to be more helpful in seeing what a lipstick would actually look like on, here they are again in context.

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Hot Plum

Maybelline Vivids Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash

I'm positive my favorite shade of the three will be rotating soon, but I'm currently loving Neon Red while my husband's favorite is Fuchsia Flash. I did notice from swatching and from initial wear tests that both the pinker shades stain significantly, which can be either good or bad depending on your preference. It does make the color last longer but it doesn't look too great when lips dry out or peel. Those who have tried the other Vivids shades, let me know if this staining effect is consistent throughout the line! In all likelihood, I'll be back at Target scoping out more shades soon.

Readers, are you into the bright lip trend? Will you be picking up any of the Maybelline Vivids lipsticks? What is your favorite shade of bold lipstick to wear? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Hot plum and fuchsia flash look extremely similar in the pictures. Would you recommend one or the other or both?

    1. I personally think Hot Plum is more flattering on me but the two actually look very different in real life! I think it just looks similar in the photos because they are next to each other. Fuchsia Flash is a lot lighter than Hot Plum. :)

    2. Thanks for the tip. I will keep that in mind for the next time I go to Target :]

  3. Ii've only tried Vibrant Mandarin and that definitely leaves a stain but its not bad after you put some lip balm or gloss over (if your lips are drying out that is)

  26. Hi Jen! I have a question which I struggle with when I buy lipstick!
    What's the best way to try on and figure out which lipstick suits me, at a store like sephora? I find that trying it on my lips become deceiving because no matter how much I try to wipe it off after each try, the color stays on and it becomes a mix of colours. Drawing it on my hand also doesn't help as I still can't tell how it looks on my face. There are huuundreds of lipstick colors and it's so overwhelming sometimes! Help! How do you pick?

    1. The good thing about Sephora is that you can test products out while you are there, but you're right it can be tough. Sephora should have waterproof makeup removers at the tester stations, so I recommend using that to wipe your lips between lipsticks! It works better than just wiping with tissue. :)

  27. I went and bought 3 Vivids because of your haul video... you're right! They're AMAZING! Thanks for the find!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I bought the Revlon Color Burst lipsticks. They're sooo cute and creamy. Especially the Creamsicle and Cherry Tart colors. You should try them :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Jen, did you use a lipliner with these lipsticks? If so, what color lipliner did you use for the Hot Plum and Fuchsia Flash lipsticks?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jen, I completely agree! The Maybelline Vivids are a Great find. I have Vivid Rose and Neon Red so far, and totally in love with them. Great pigmentation, lasting power, and price point! All the colors look great, especially the hot plum, will definitely pick that up next time!

  31. Hi Jen, I just want to let you know that your picture from this post is being used by an online shop on facebook. I'm not sure if you are aware of it, since they used my picture without my permission I thought they might do the same with you. Here's the link to their fb page https://www.facebook.com/twlcosmetics/photos_stream ... they also use the same picture on their instagram.
