Here it is on me.
I love the color of the tube! It's like a weird combination of neon orange, pink and red. It's so neat.
Arm swatches. Vivid Rose on the left and Hot Plum on the right.
Hot Plum is a bright pink that leans purple. I wouldn't call it a plum, I'd call it more of a purple-leaning fuchsia. I just love this lipstick. Like I said, I have a soft spot for Maybelline lippies. They apply really nicely, have a really lovely formula, have wonderful coverage, and feel lighter than most creme lipstick formulas. I find that they typically last for about 4 hours on me without touchups. This color is totally perfect for spring. It's also nice because lately I've been really into pink makeup. I never thought I'd like pink eyeshadow, but I just can't help myself.
I've been loving this little drugstore quad by Revlon (Berry Bloom), which I've had for years and I've just started using. Used sparingly, I think pink looks great on the eyes. It's so happy. And now I'll have lips to match!
You can find the Maybelline Vivids lipsticks in most drugstores for between $6-8, depending on where you are. I've heard that some people have found them at Target for as little as around $5.50, so do be on the lookout for that.
I am soooo ready for summer. I can't wait to raid my lipstick collection, which is still at my parents' house, when I go home this week...
