Hey all beauty geeks!!! Did you guys check out the new song of Priyanka Chopra – ‘I can’t make you love me’??? God, the woman is super-talented!!! I am a huge fan of her style, acting and now singing. Loved both her earlier songs as well – the first one more than the second 😉 Anyways, it is so nice to see an Indian woman do well internationally. Kudos to her 🙂 Moving to the review today, I have finally found a color that is perfect coral – not too pink, or red, or orange. Lately, I have been getting an urge for wearing light shades as well. So I went shopping and picked up Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Smoking Coral.

My take on Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Smoking Coral:
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks come in ten amazing shades. The entire collection is DEDICATED to brights. Smoking Coral is probably just one of the few colors that does not aim to pack a color punch 😉 The color is soft pinky coral, that might look pink or coral depending on your lips. On my lips, it does give a coral vibe but gravitate towards pink. The shade is perfect for spring and summers. Makes me look so fresh and go with almost any type of eye makeup. I generally prefer to wear it during daytime, reserving brights for evening. 🙂
Texture: The lipstick is creamy and goes on very smoothly on the lips. This shade does not have much sheen as compared to the bright shades in the collection. May emphasize lines on the lips if not properly exfoliated.
Pigmentation: Color payoff is amazing. Gives a nice color to the lips in one swipe. Though I do go over twice to completely cover my pigmented lips.
Staying Power: Stays for 4-5 hours. Does not survive eating/drinking. But leaves a stain behind.
Smell : Has the same smell as color sensational lipsticks that does not linger for long.
Packaging: The entire line of lipsticks has the same packaging. The cap is red-orange in color with the shade and the name mentioned on the bottom of the lipstick.
What I love about Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Smoking Coral:
- Perfect coral color for summers.
- Very fresh looking shade.
- Smooth creamy texture.
- Semi-matt finish.
- Good pigmentation.
- Lips feel very comfortable and light.
- Decent staying power.
- Even application.
- Applies evenly.
What I do not love about Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Smoking Coral:
- May emphasize fine lines on the lips.
- Same packaging for all the shades.
- May stain or transfer easily.
- Unavailability in India as of now.
Final Impression: The color ‘Smoking Coral’ is a very fresh pinky coral that looks lovely in summers. With the current trend of coral and orange lips, it fits very well in any makeup collection. Definitely recommended!!!
