Maybelline Vibrant Violet ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color

Maybelline Vibrant Violet ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, purple with strong, pink undertones giving it a warmer undertone overall paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency so the color applied evenly. The color lasted for five and a half hours, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating but fairly comfortable to wear. MAC Up the Amp (P, $16.00) is lighter, glossier. MAC RiRi Boy (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less glossy. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $21.00) is lighter, less glossy. Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $19.00) is brighter, less glossy. Colour Pop Grind (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy. Colour Pop Lychee (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy. Colour Pop Zipper (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Heroine (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Electric Pink ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered evenly initially, though I had some color slip into lip lines after four and a half hours of wear. This shade lasted for five and a half hours in total and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Buds (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy. NARS Angela (P, $32.00) is darker, more muted. Clinique Wow Pop (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted, warmer. Anastasia Party Pink (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Kat Von D Backstage Bambi (P, $19.00) is darker, brighter, less glossy. Melt Cosmetics Stupid Love (P, $19.00) is darker. MAC Happy-Go-Lucky (LE, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Illamasqua Luster (P, $26.00) is lighter, glossier. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is darker, warmer, glossier. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is darker. Maybelline Pink ‘n Chic (P, $7.99) is lighter, more muted.

Maybelline Pink ‘n Chic ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. It’s definitely not what you’d think of for a matte finish, though it is a lot more comfortable to wear than your average matte as it had more slip. The texture was creamy and lightweight, almost velvety, and lasted for four and a half hours but some color pulled into lip lines over time.
Illamasqua Luster (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier. Kat Von D Armageddon (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Mannequin (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Saint Germain (LE, $16.00) is cooler. MAC Pink Nouveau (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted, glossier. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more muted. Maybelline Electric Pink (P, $7.99) is lighter, more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Blushing Pout ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink with hints of cooler, mauve tones to it, though it had more of a neutral-to-cool undertone paired with a satin finish. It had fairly opaque coverage that applied evenly overall, but there is some translucency so if you have a stronger natural lip color, it may pull differently on you. It was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and lasted for five hours on me. I did notice some color pulled into lip lines after three and a half hours of wear. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is darker, less pigmented, warmer. Colour Pop Shimmy (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy. Maybelline Lust for Blush (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. Bite Beauty #005 (LE, $36.00) is brighter, less glossy, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to “deliver a burst of bold lip color” with a “creamy texture” and a matte finish. In general, the formula has good color payoff with a velvety, creamy consistency that covers evenly and most shades seem to make lips appear smoother but some shades were prone to pulling into lip lines as the color wore away. The big thing about these is that they have a mostly matte finish and are more comfortable to wear than many matte formulas due to the velvety feel (almost like a silicone primer, but not quite as heavy and not clingy). The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. It had a sweet, plastic-like scent but no taste.

Oh, I’ve been eagerly awaiting for reviews and swatches on Vibrant Violet, as soon as I saw it! I already have Heroine and Grind, love these kind of colors. I think Heroine pulls more purple on me and Vibrant Violet will pull more pink, so I’ll grab it.

Wow, absolutely gorgeous on you! This is what I feel matte lipsticks should be, not totally and completely dead flat matte like the ColourPop Ultra Mattes you reviewed a couple of days ago. I look forward to your review of the rest of these Maybellines.

Every time I turn around they add more colors to this collection! They are pretty but I feel like now so many are starting to look similar!

It’s funny that not long ago there were NO purple lipsticks by drugstore brands, and I’m SO glad to see them coming out with them like this! Vibrant Violet looks gorgeous! I like the pinks, but they’re not right for my skintone. 🙁

So thankful you do these reviews, for Vibrant Violet I have Up the Amp and Heroine, for Pink ‘N Chic I have St Germain & Pink Nouveau. And the last one is too pale for me.

I believe I am set!

You’re smiling again! These look lovely and your eyes seriously look wonderful! It’s nice to see good reviews for a DS lip! They do get pricey though, especially when they won’t work, so I reserve them only to be bought, during desperate times. I get lost in drugstores, looking at everything.. It’s not safe for me! 😀

I’m really loving the finishes and the quality of the line so far. Not sure I’d pick up these colors for me though.

All of them look very pretty on you! I ended up getting all of these except for Pink n Chic. I really like how it looks on you but I have a feeling it’s going to settle into all my lip lines. I’m excited to try the rest of them though!

I just got vibrant violet and all fired up today… Such pretty colors especially for us deeper skin tone women and I really love this formula not super drying and lasts pretty good for drugstore…. You look great as always
