Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids - Shocking Coral

Today I bring you another one of Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids, this time in the shade Shocking Coral. I've already reviewed Fuschia Flash (which you can see here), and I absolutely love that shade. I think this Vivids line is perfect for Spring and Summer, since all of the shades are very bright, fun, and colourful, yet still beautiful and easy to wear.




Shocking Coral is a really pretty orangey shade with pink undertones. I really like coral lip colours since I find corals much easier to pull off compared to oranges. I find Shocking Coral a great shade, since you can tone it down, or wear it bold and bright. Since this shade is from the Vivids line, it is quite bright, but I still find that I can sheer it down when I want to. 


While I didn't have any problems with the formula of Fuchsia Flash, I do find that Shocking Coral can be a bit drying on my lips. I make sure to always apply a balm before I apply Shocking Coral, and this solves my problem. The colour from this lipstick lasts on my lips for about 5 hours, but I do find that I need to apply a balm or gloss over top to keep my lips hydrated. 
Have you tried any of Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids? Which shades do you recommend? :)
