Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids – Pink Pop Review

Hey Friends,

Hope all of you are doing fine and excited about 14th February :) I guess many of you must be set to surprise your valentine with sweet surprising gestures and gifts.  Well, I am also busy doing the same and tried to rehearse before the finale, my bad!! Gals, I am talking about New Maybelline Color Vivid Lip Color “Pink Pop,” which broke my heart before Valentine’s :P Please read on further to know my disappointment.

Price:

$ 7.49 for 0.15 Oz (4.2 g), may vary from store to store.

Pink Pop 1

Product Description:

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color:

  • Brighter color from exclusive vivid pigments.
  • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.
  • Bright goes gorgeous, never garish.
  • Be bright and gorgeous.

Packaging:

Pink Pop 2

The soft, creamy, matte lip color comes in a bullet type tube packaging. The semi opaque cap color is orange for all shades. It looks like any other Colorsensational packaging, which is travel friendly and sturdy. However, its heavenly scented which remains on the lips for a few hours. I personally love mildly scented lip goodies.

My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color – Pink Pop:

As you all know, I have gone crazy for makeup, so its but natural for me to get a nail paint or lip color every weekend  :P “Naya naya shauk hai, sar chad k bolega,” is what my hubby thinks after rubbing his CC at beauty stores. :P Well this time, I genuinely picked just one youthful color just for him :shy :P We usually visit malls every weekend just to walk and shed my baby weight and enjoy window shopping. However, I never come back without bag full of goodies!

Pink Pop 4

So insane of me and I am sure someone is going to kill me :P Anyway, Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids is a new range of lip colors from the “Colorsensational” series which is more bright and long lasting according to the SA.  I was looking for a fresh and youthful shade, apt for a romantic Valentine evening (if Aadya madam permits :P) when the SA introduced me to the “Color Vivids” lavishing luminous shades!

Pink Pop 5

I must tell you I lost all my senses and thought of buying all the shades especially “Fire Red,” “Fuchsia Flash,” “Neon Red,” “Vibrant Mandarin.” See my luck, I left all of them behind and came home with “Pink Pop.” Pink Pop in itself is really a gorgeous soft baby pink shade with subtle shine, but I look dull after wearing it. However, I was literally drooling over this pink as I hardly own any baby pink color.

Pink Pop 6

Coming to the texture, its extremely creamy and soft matte kind of color.  It glides smoothly on lips, but imparts a frosty matte finish on the lips.  I guess matte finishing gives that unusual harsh look to my face overall as I am not used to pulling off matte colors.  Moreover, when my hubby came back from office, he was about to faint and totally refused to click swatches for me :P

Pink Pop 7

According to him, I looked like a ghost (sob sob!).  Actually, I feel this particular shade is very tricky and may look dull or soft on fair-skinned beauties along with harsh matte finishing! Still, I was courageous enough to wander here and there around him hoping to get some positive comments! Sadly, it did not happen and finally I wiped it off from my lips at the end of day. Yes gals, I do not have issues with its long lasting and extremely creamy and hydrating nature except the finish.  Even with meals, this lip color stays for 6-8 hours leaving a stubborn stain behind with subtle shining at last.

Pink Pop 8

I felt my lips smooth and silky throughout the day.  I should have opted for either “Fuchsia Flash” or “Vivid Rose” for the desired pink stain, as I feel other shades are not matte.  Moreover, my desire for having a pink is increasing by the day and I am stocking it in my kit just for eye candy as those look so cute.  I usually wear light brown shades beneath Pink Pop for subtle pink lips.  I am planning to get a decent pink as well as other shades from the “Color Vivids” before Valentine’s for sure :)

Summing up the pros and cons:

Pros of Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color – Pink Pop:

  • Gorgeous and bright baby pink shade.
  • Extremely soft and creamy texture.
  • Velvety matte finish on the lips.
  • Keeps lips smooth and hydrated, leaving behind a stain even after washing it off.
  • Long staying power, up to 6-8 hours.
  • Heavenly vanilla smell, remains for an hour or so.

Cons of Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color – Pink Pop:

  • It does transfers.
  • Fair skin tones may not pull off this particular tricky shade easily.
  • Pink Pop has an unusual frosty matte finish, which looks dull on fair skin.
  • Ingredient list is always missing in “Color Vivids” and “Color Whisper” goodies.
  • Non-availability in India.

Overall, I would say that for a velvety textured matte finish one, you can give this a try, but please swatch on lips if possible before opting for “Pink Pop.” Let me tell you Neon Red, Fuchsia Flash, On Fire Red, Vibrant Mandarin, Vivid Rose are some of the gorgeous shades from the “Color Vivids” on my wish list.  I will be back soon with more hot shades :)

Till then stay beautiful and glowing!!
