Maybelline launched this collection in February, and whoever is head of their product development deserves a raise. It comes in 10 vibrant shades, from hot pinks to popping plums. I only have three of the colors (this is broke college style, after all) and I’ll do a second post on the ones I have. For now, let’s take a look at the whole collection!
860 Pink Pop
This is the epitome of a bubble gum pink. It actually reminds me a lot of Nicki Minaj’s Mac collab!
865 Fuchsia Flash
This is definitely the Barbie pink of the group. I’m actually pretty sure it’s the same color as my high school prom dress. This is one of the ones I own and will review later so stay tuned!
870 Shocking Coral
Coral is SO in this season, and I love how this is a bright coral that’s more red than pink.
875 Vivid Rose
To me, this is a super bright berry that would look great on any skin tone. I have this one too, review to come!
880 Electric Orange
This is definitely made for the more daring lady. The color is so hot right now!
885 Vibrant Mandarin
This shade is one that’s a little more red than orange. Easier for us who can’t really go the full monty orange-wise!
890 Neon Red
Although reds are done year-round, I feel like this is a color that you don’t see very often. I have it and will talk about it in that next review!
895 On Fire Red
This is probably the only color in the collection that is close to something you could find somewhere else. But who doesn’t need an amazing firetruck red in their lipstick arsenal?
900 Hot Plum
What’s amazing to me is that this shade is like Pink Pop’s darker younger brother. The tones are so similar, so if you’re gonna go on a buying spree and either of them work on you, I’d suggest buying them both!
905 Brazen Berry
This deep deep plum would look perfect on darker skin tone. It’s the perfect bright purple for those who’ve got the guts!
Overall these shades are knockouts. A bright, matte lip is so on trend right now, and Maybelline hit the mark releasing these specific shades at this specific time. I’ve found too that trying to find a matte bright shade that doesn’t look cheap is not easy. It’s almost as if they’ve been written off by drugstore cosmetic companies until now, so they had a couple bright ones as a novelty and didn’t spend the time and effort to get the shades right. With a wide range of colors, there’s something for every color comfort level and skin tone. I love all the shades Images courtesy of Yessie at DorkyYessie and Stephanie Louise at All Things Beautiful

This color red isn’t your average. And that’s exactly why I love it. This red has blue undertones, working best on bronzer skin. Those undertones are what makes it such a vibrant shade, and I want it!
