The collection has over 10 shades inclusive of the typical pinks and reds that are right on trend for spring and summer. I tend to gravitate towards deeper pink/purple shades and so I went with Brazen Berry which is quite similar to my Covergirl lipstick in Divine. Brazen Berry is a vibrant, bold and extremely pigmented lip colour. This lipstick is smooth and effortless in terms of application and gives an opaque finish with a single swipe.
In my opinion the longevity of this lipstick is dependent on whether you use a lip balm or not, when I applied this lipstick after my lip balm I found that the lipstick didn't last as long, however when I applied Brazen Berry straight out of the tube the colour lasted for hours, therefore I would recommend using this lipstick without a lip balm as it is very moisturizing on its own .The smell is not overwhelming its more on the fruity side but I not really a fan of it.In conclusion if I were to compare this Maybelline Brazen lipstick with my Covergirl Divine lipstick I would say Brazen Berry wins in terms of ease of application and finish whereas Divine wins on the basis of longevity,nevertheless both lipsticks are good dupes for the coveted Heroine lipstick from MAC.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid lipsticks?
