Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick Violet Pink- Review, Swatches,FOTD

Maybelline has finally listened to my heart and came out with the Colorsensational Vivid range of lipsticks in India. The launched the “Vivid” range three years back in US. I have two from that range and was eagerly waiting for the range to launch here. But only four shades have launched here and the colors are also not exactly the same as what is available in the US. But whatever, the color launched here are no less pretty.

Shades available:-
The range has four lovely bright shades – Neon Pink, Scarlet Red, Rosy Orange and Violet Pink

Rs 475 each.

The lipstick comes in a black twisted rectangular case with a glossy red colored cap. Shade name mentioned at the base.

Violet Pink, as the name says, is a pink with hints of violet/magenta.  It is bright and bold, but nothing that you can’t pull off. I wear this in the mornings too, and with ease. Violet Pink of India is close to Vivid Rose of US.

It is extremely buttery and glides so smoothly on lips. After a few minutes it settles into a semi-matte finish. I just love creamy matte finishes. It keeps lips soft, moisturized, and also gives the lips sexy velvety matte finish.

Just 1 swipe for those luscious lips. It is superbly pigmented. I swiped only once on the lip swatches and FOTD.

Staying power:-
It stays around 6 hours on me and leaves a strong tint behind which stays for another few hours. The stain stays even after yummy yummy heavy meals.

Summing up my Likes and Dislikes:-

What I liked about Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid- Violet Pink:-:-
  • A stunning color that would suit everyone.
  • Soft, buttery texture.
  • Glides easily.
  • Settles into a semi matte finish.
  • Well pigmented.
  • Stays long.
  • Nice packaging.
  • Easily available.
  • Budget friendly.

What I don’t like about about Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid- Violet Pink:-
  • Highlights dry patches after few hours, so exfoliating lips before application is a must.

Final Thoughts (Would I Recommend/Repurchase?):-
The lip color is so rich, so stunning…it’s sensational. It has enough pink and violet to suit all skin tones and is beautiful on every season. I adore the shade and love the moisturizing semi-matte finish. I am definitely getting another one or two from the range..


Have you tried any from the VIVID range? Let us know. I just wish Maybelline launch a few more shades in the range; at least a peachy nude.

So did you like this color? Then grab it before it runs out of stock.
