You are seriously slacking if you haven’t been to your local drugstore lately. ‘Cause these brands are killing it, honey! I pop in and out drugstores for lashes these days. But I can never leave with just lashes. Not with all of these new releases looming about!
The new Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquers caught my eye during my last lash run. There were so many pretty colors that I just had to indulge! At first, I thought the Vivid Hot Lacquers were just another line of glosses. But they’re so much more than that!
Lip Gloss? Or Lipstick?
The Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquers are a pigment-packed, long-wearing formula with a loaded high shine finish that’s absolutely stunning. Think of the Vivid Hot Lacquers as a liquid lipstick and lip gloss rolled into one chic package. They’re the best of both worlds!
I picked up a few of the new Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquers expecting them to be a sheer gloss. Something that I could layer over my favorite mattes when they start to feel a little drying. I was completely blown away when I tried one. My lips were coated with color and a mirror-shine in just a single swipe. You go, Maybelline!
Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
The Vivid Hot Lacquers are intense, juicy and a real treat to wear! The formula applies smoothly and evenly without a lip liner. Thanks to the precise pointed doe foot applicator. And it feels like plush butter on the lips with a velvety gel-like texture that’s lightly moisturizing. The best part? It lasts! Glosses normally slide right off my lips after about an hour or two.
Not these babies!
Maybelline has managed to squeeze everything I love about lipsticks into this marvelous gloss. The Vivid Hot Lacquer formula lasts for around 4 hours before it starts to lose it’s juicy, glossy finish and begin to fade. Yes, that’s even with eating and drinking!
I’ve managed to finish a meal and gulp down a bottle of water while wearing one of these babies. Of course, the high shine finish had quickly faded. But the color still managed to hang on. Especially the vampier shades. They really stain!
It’s a good thing I started off strong and grabbed a handful because I’m completely obsessed! I currently own 5 of the Vivid Hot Lacquers including:
- 62 Charmer neutral nude pink-beige
- 64 Unreal warm soft nude beige
- 66 Too Cute cool baby pink
- 74 Retro warm brick brown
- 76 Obsessed cool plum-violet
I love them all, of course. But my faves would have to be Retro and Unreal. Retro makes for one sexy vampy lip for fall that pairs well with anything. From smoky eyes to dramatic wings. Retro has literally been my go to lip for weeks because it’s so edgy and sultry yet so easy to wear. Unreal is the perfect nude for brown skin! Unreal looks beautiful on its own and layered over lipsticks. I love that I don’t even need a lip liner to pull it off!
Do I need to try the new Vivid Hot Lacquers?
Yes you do! The Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquers are POPPIN’! They’re full of pigment with a plush texture and a pretty impressive wear time. You certainly don’t want to miss out!
