Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick | Brazen Berry - Review + Swatch

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick | Brazen Berry, $7.49
Summer might be over, and there may be rumors of an early season snow here in North Carolina next week, but I love warm weather products that I can transition into autumn and winter. Today I'm bringing you a fantastic lippy that was gorgeous in summer, and is versatile enough for these increasingly chilly fall days!

The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Brazen Berry is a gorgeous, bright deep fuchsia that wears well on most skin tones. Infused with honey nectar, this lipstick is remarkably moisturizing and has a lovely, glossy finish. Well pigmented, Brazen Berry wears for a couple hours before needing a top up. I wore it out to dinner Thursday night, and only had to give my lips a quick slick to get them back to their bright, purply glory!

I love how Brazen Berry feels on the lips, and it's nice to just be able to carry this around instead of my usual lipstick/lip balm duo. It also has a slightly perfumed scent (some have likened it to Play-Doh), but you can't smell it once applied, nor can you taste it if you lick your lips. To get the most out of this lipstick, you'll want to make sure to exfoliate your lips beforehand to get the smoothest finish.

And let me just gush over the packaging for a moment. So many lip bullets are plain black or metallic, but this baby is a blazing, see-through red acrylic! I can always find it in my bag or see it clearly when I'm rummaging through my drawer of lipsticks.

Brazen Berry is fantastic and I can't get enough of it I pull it out and wear it like I would lip balm, but have the confidence to walk lips first into any room! It's just so stunning. I definitely recommend this one to people who might be a little nervous about wearing a bright colored lipstick as this one is bright without being too over the top.

And just for fun, here's a photo of my husband and I being silly after taking the product shots for today's post. He's just too darn cute sometimes! I'm lucky I married a guy who doesn't mind being a weirdo with me on occasion. He's definitely a good'un!

Have any of you picked up Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Brazen Berry? Do you like wearing bright lippies even in the colder months?

  6. SnOMG will not be happening next week, haha. I don't know who brought it up first but their models were having a moment. The most we'll be getting is some pretty cold rain. I wish it was snow though just because we haven't gotten a whole lot in the past few years. Just in the mountains.

    1. Shh! Don't ruin my dreams! Haha! I'm the person who hears rumors of snow and gets so excited time and time again only to be completely disappointed! And yet I keep doing it! It really would be nice if we were able to get decent snow here this year. A lot of places are predicting that the mid-atlantic will be a lot colder than normal, so I'm just crossing my fingers that we'll actually get some precipitation to go along with that cold! xx

    1. It really is a fantastic everyday lipstick! And because it's so moisturizing, it feels more like a balm when you wear it which I think appeals to most people! Thank you for the sweet compliment, hunny! I appreciate it! xx

  8. I love all of the colours that Maybelline has come out with in their Vivids line but I kind of shied away from them because they were so bright. I'm getting more adventurous with my lip colours lately so I may go pick some up.

    Brazen Berry is a gorgeous colour and it looks great on you! x

    1. You should definitely pick up one or two! They are quite bright, but they are sheer so it doesn't seem quite as shocking! Plus, they are super moisturizing and feel amazing on! I'm glad you like the color, and thank you for such a lovely compliment! xx

    1. It's a really great color to branch out with because it's so sheer and moisturizing! Not as in your face as bright mattes that you would get at MAC, for example! Thank you, hunny! He and I like being silly together! Keeps things fun! xx
