Bright lips with Maybelline! Color Sensational Vivid Shocking Coral & Color Sensational Coral Tonic - photos, swatches, review

I don't know, it must have been the sunshine or something, because I went to Boots and came out with two really really really bright lipsticks.... But I couldn't resist, they were gorgeous and I was feeling brave, so into my basket went Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid in Shocking Coral and the Color Sensational in Coral Tonic.  One is labelled vivid but they both should be because they are ba-right!

And yes, they both have "coral" in the name which makes the whole thing sweeter as I am the self proclaimed coral queen.


Shocking Coral is one of the new Color Sensational Vivid shades that I first saw over on DollyRouge and knew it would be mine.  It's even more bright and vivid in person so get swatching and you'll see what I mean!  Because Boots had a deal on at the time, buy one get 50% off, I searched for a second lippie, wondering if I should go wild and get the orange vivid shade.  I don't really wear plum shades so ended up going outside of the Vivid range and back to Maybelline's regular Color Sensational range before finding Coral Tonic.  This, my friends, is what it's all about.  And when I say "it", I mean life.  Beauty life.  Coral Tonic is the perfect balance of coral and orange with the barest hint of pinky undertones, this is going to be perfect for summer time!

Both shades are creamy, opaque and feel really comfortable on the lips.  Shocking Coral definitely looks more pink than coral on me, but nonetheless is a stunning shade that will look gorgeous with a slick of black liner and tonnes of mascara.  Coral Tonic warms up my complexion and suits my skin tone perfectly and is going to look even better when I have a bit of a (fake) tan!

Both shades last about 3-4 hours on me if I'm not eating or drinking and leave a light stain on the lips than can be topped up with more lippie or lip balm.

Both of these lipsticks are available now at €10.49 and are worth every penny.  If you're looking for bright shades this summer, then they're definitely worth checking out.  Is it bad that now I'm regretting not getting the Electric Orange shade?!

Have you tried either of these colours yet?

  5. Both look great on you! I thought I would be able to pull off Shocking Coral but even when I try to tone it down, mixing with a neutral (which I thought would work at first) it doesn't look that good on me. Lucky you! :)
