I bought 5 new shades of lipstick, all of the Maybelline Vivid collection. This particular shade is #870 – Shocking Coral. I really like it. It stays on well after you blot and rocks the intense/wow-factor really well. Makes me feel like a lady. But a wild lady.
It also made me feel like I needed to wear my hair up to really show it off right, but I rarely wear my hair up, so I thought I’d give it a go with leaving it down. My hair is my favorite prop. When it’s up, I feel like I don’t know what to do in photos.
The only thing I would comment about the lipstick is that it doesn’t look particularly coral-y. These photos were edited so it’s not quite that dark of a purple either, but the nail polish I’m wearing is Essie’s Peach Daiquiri, so you can tell it’s not all that close to a traditional coral.
Below is a photo that wasn’t edited so you can see the true color:
I have a very exciting project I’m working on that I hope to be “unveiling” around the 1st of August, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
