Maybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color Review, Photos, Swatches!

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.

Maybelline Hot Plum Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick on my lips

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?

The Round-Up


  • Very bright, opaque color
  • Lightweight and comfortable on the lips
  • Moisturizing
  • Long-lasting
  • 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.

  1. What a great color. I have one of the Vivids in Neon Red. It is a gorgeous, glossy red that has slight orange pull to it. I love it for a summer red because its not too deep, just bright and happy.


  2. I have vivid rose and I was shocked by it. The intensity after one application and how gorgeous it was! You should try that one..I think it would look great on you!

    I think I need this one too now! 🙂


  3. Color looks great! But will there be any…conclear etc posts in the near future? You always post about lip products!


  4. I believe the Vivids line is “permanent” but they have limited edition colors every season. I'm obsessed with these lipsticks as well. The color payoff is huge, the color lasts, and they are super affordable! Neon Red is a great shade to try!



  5. This hot plum color is gorgeous. I'm going to recommend it to my best friend (bride to be), for the bridesmaids to wear!! Our dresses are black, so this color will definitely stand out.


  6. Love pink lipstick but it seems this color is not easy to wear! Thank you for sharing!
