Maybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline 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.
I actually found this shade marked on clearance at my local Target for a little over $3. I’m not sure if this shade or the line in general is limited edition.. Does anyone know?
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.
Price: $6-8 at your local drugstore. Price may vary based on location.
