Maybelline has also recently launched the “Color Sensational Vivid Matte Lipstick” range along with the Big Apple Red Creamy Matte Lipstick range in India. As I have already reviewed 210 Dare To Be Red from the “Big Apple Red Creamy Matte Lipstick” range, let us now talk about the “Color Sensational Vivid Matte Lipstick” range. This range consists of only 4 shades, and how I wish Maybelline launched many more shades. I really liked all the shades in this range as, true to their name, they are bright, vivid, and fun colors to wear this summer time. I was drawn more toward the orange in this range, and thus I picked the shade “Vivid 4 Rosy Orange.”

My Experience with Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid 4 Rosy Orange Vivid Matte Lipstick
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a matte black tube with a red cap. The packaging looks too classy. The brand name printed in white against the completely black packaging adds that edgy look and calls for to touch up in public just to show off your lipstick case 🙂 The cap shuts off with a click, making it travel friendly. All information is printed only on the tear sheet and not on the actual product. However, the range and shade names are printed in a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube.
Texture: This lipstick has a creamy texture and applies really smooth on the lips. It is nicely pigmented. Single swipe gives medium color, which can be built up with another layer. Even multiple layers do not feel heavy on the lips. It certainly gives a full-on opaque coverage even on pigmented lips. I am so happy that it did not have that weird scent present in Big Apple Red Creamy Matte lipsticks.
Shade: “Vivid 4 Rosy Orange,” like its name, is a beautiful orange with a hint of pink. It is not that kind of true orange and can be pulled off with ease by everyone. It has warm undertones and thus suits my dusky skin tone beautifully. If you are wondering, I am MAC NC 45 and Maybelline Fit Me! 330 Toffee Caramel. I am quite enjoying this shade, which is quite appropriate for this warm season.
The following are swatches of all four shades in this range.
Performance: As the name suggests, this lipstick is supposed to be matte, but it is not completely matte. It applies to a sort of creamy, semi-matte finish. It applies smoothly on the lips and does not dry out as well. The formula is really comfortable to wear. However, the formula is not like their creamy matte ones. The color moves a bit but does not crease. This lipstick is very easy to remove, which also means that it transfers. If you are eating or drinking, then you will definitely see the transfer and color fading. However, it also leaves behind a stain on the lips. This lipstick has an incredible staying power of 6–7 hours and can even survive a meal. Moreover, it does not settle into fine lines. Overall, it is a pleasing orange for Indian skin tones.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid 4 Rosy Orange Vivid Matte Lipstick
I recommend this range if you like, or love to sport, vivid colors. Also do try this shade as it is one of the best looking oranges rather than the usual bright and jarring ones. Of course I would be repurchasing as this is going to my favorite orange shade.
