Maybelline Hot Plum ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline Hot Plum ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Hot Plum ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, magenta pink with a satiny finish. Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is pinker and brighter–a lot less magenta/purple. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl is lighter. MAC Pink Pigeon is pinker. MAC Night Blooming is a touch purpler. MAC Dear Diary is similar. Shiseido Fuchsia RS 320 is purpler, darker. NARS Schiap is slightly pinker.

This is one of the more “subdued” shades from the range that I’ve tried, though it is still a bright, vivid shade. It’s not quite as neon in color, so for some, it may be more wearable as a result. Hot Plum had very nearly opaque color payoff–there’s a hint of translucency (but the trade off is that it doesn’t look heavy on the lips) but it looks rather opaque.  The consistency is lightweight, slightly creamy, and is comfortable to wear.  It had less slip compared to the last few shades I’ve reviewed, but it didn’t pull or tug on the lips when I applied it.  Hot Plum wore for six hours and left a lingering stain behind.  I found this shade neither hydrating nor drying.

  1. Yet another gorgeous shade~ BTW: with these vivids, I love your paired down look with the powerful lip. Your cheeks look very pretty too.

  2. n8iveBeauT

    Yes, I love this color. Since I cannot wear it to work, as soon as I get home I put this sucker on and wear it around the house. That is how much I love it. I have to wear neutral make up for work and it looks just as gorgeous as when I wear it with colorful eyeshadow. I’ve worn it with purples, and turqoise colors. It’s just that versatile.

  3. SarahKita

    Sooo glad I have ordered this and a bunch of the other vivids from the US!!

  4. Vici

    Great to see drugstore brands putting out such great collection and it looks no less than high end brands. Just one question dear, does this lipstick feel like Revlon lip butters , or like the usual lipsticks? Thanks and keep on posting such great products from DS as it saves our wallet ;). You look fantastic.

  5. TLC

    Another Vivid shade to pick up. This colour is gorgeous!!!

  6. Reesa

    I absolutely love these vivid lip colors. Although they are bright, I also find them very wearable with a little tweaking. Hot Plum is my favorite…I also have the coral, orange and fuschia colors. So pretty!

  7. I love it on you but I am a wuss and I probably wouldn’t wear it :-)

  8. Fatma

    You look beautiful ! What foundation are you wearing on this picture ?

  9. I’ve been seeing a lot of new shades from Maybelline lipsticks, they do look great. If they were cruelty-free, I probably would check them out

  10. I love the vivids, I can’t choose my fave! Vibrant Mandarin is HOT, so is Vivid Rose, and Shocking Coral!! And Electric Orange.. and Full Fuchsia. See? Can’t choose one! lol

    What’s on your cheeks? I love it!

  11. Lynda

    I bought this Monday and I absolutely love it! I bought it for £7.19p here in the UK and the pay off of colour is amazing, It suits my pale skin and if I fake tan! Such a lovely product, I am a bit obsessed with buying Maybelline products at the moment, I think I’ll have bought the whole collection pretty soon, Great Review :D

  12. artemis

    it looks like it has some shimmer on your hand and upper lip. does it? :D

  13. Tina

    I almost bought this until I realized it looked a lot like Daddy’s Little Girl. I got the berry one instead

  14. Mel

    All the colors I’ve seen so far are very similar, in the pink/magenta range.

  15. Jasmine M.

    I love this colour! I saw the tester in person and I HAD to get it. Its so gorgeous. I also find that it make my green eyes stand out when I wear it. :)

  16. I looove this color! I bought this shade the other day along with Brazen Berry!

  17. I can’t wait for this Vivids Lip Color to be available here in the Philippines! YAY!

  18. Neha

    Your reviews on bright pink lipsticks makes me so greedy to own them, I can wear almost all other neon shades in corals or reds confidently, but I don’t know these pinks just don’t suit me at all, though like u I’m an NC30 too..u look so so stunning, but I look clownish.. :(

  19. Lisa

    lol, “subdued shade”

    Still very gorgeous though, great color on you!

  20. Georgia Lee

    I bought this lipstick the other day and I love it! Can you do a review on the maybelline vivids lipstick shade in shocking coral?

  21. rachel

    I dunno this shade kinda hurts my eyes

  22. kEG

    This is a truly stunning color- I just want readers to know, if they haven’t researched it yet, Maybelline is one of the offenders shown to have higher than average lead levels in their lipsticks. It’s not the worst-I think Covergirl gets that dubious honor. Here is the website to see the actual levels in a few tested brands http://www.fda.gov and then go to cosmetics and then type in “lead” under search

  23. kEG

    I read the expanded survey and discovered Maybelline did take the top spot for lead content in one of their lipsticks. The figures in the newer survey are disheartening. I hope that this has, or will change.

  24. kEG

    The FDA is stating there is no need for concern at the present time, since we don’t ingest lipstick….IDK, I think I will avoid the brands that have high numbers until more research is done :(

  25. Shaunngh

    Just went out and bought six of the Vivids including this one. So pretty! A girl can never have too many coral and pink lipsticks!

  26. Katie T.

    Ok, I’m going to have to get a few of the vivids now, you created a ton of lemmings.

  27. Amy

    Yay I’m glad you did a review on this because I recently bought it! I love it but haven’t gotten around to wearing it yet. I was really impressed by the quality of it as I tend to stay away from drugstore products. Think I might start wearing it around the house too! :P

  28. Love them all. Your cheeks look fab. <3

  29. Hi Temptalia, I’m Carlotta and I often read your blog from Italy!
    I love so much your posts and review!
    I have one question for you: do you know if this type of lipstick by Maybelline will be sold also in Italy or if it’s only for US and UK?
    Thank you so much!
    Carlotta.

    I own this shade and LOVE it! It was the only purchase I made from the Vivids line and I was so surprised. It gives MAC a run for its money. Will be a staple in anyone’s makeup closet.

  31. I have been wearing this so much! I have DLG from MAC too & I feel like they are very similar, but the finish is a bit different. Love your swatches! :)

  32. RACHAEL

    Crazy it looks so much more pink on here then I feel it does in real life. I swear I see the beauty in your pics that I don’t see in others…whether I feel there for me or not.

  33. Rhanda

    I picked this one up today and — for what it’s worth — it was “marked down” to only $5.44 at Target. I will spend $5 to try a bright lip trend. :D

  34. Diana

    Does hot plum compare to macs playtime lippie??
