Maybelline Shocking Coral

Another Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick to share with you – this is Maybelline Shocking Coral and probably the one that’s the least ‘coral-like’ in the bullet – it looks more like a raspberry red and even when applied I would say it is more towards the pinker side than the coral side… but that’s not to say it’s not a lovely shade!

On the lips it does definitely lean towards raspberry rather than the typical coral but it does have just enough of an orangey tint to it to keep it looking fresh and pretty.

This is one of the ‘Shocking Vivids’ range from Color Sensational (hence the orange lid rather than the darker shade of the others) and it definitely lives up to it’s name. Really bright with a proper ‘pow’ impact of colour – in some lights it almost has a neon tinge to it.

Downside of this shade… I am now struggling to pick a favourite from the ones I have been playing me! I do love a creamy bright lipstick!

Have you tried any of the Maybelline Color Sensational range at all?

Available from Boots.

    I think it looks great on you! It is a lot more pink than coral. I have the Vibrant Mandarin and it is a lovely bright orange! Great Post xx Rena

    I heard about this from other bloggers, but kind of dismissed it, but you’re convincing me otherwise! I might have to go and check it out now. Great review. Love the blog too! xx

    I love this colour so much and is very pretty on you. I need to buy more shades like this because I don’t usually go for more bold colours
