Spotted in Canada: New Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Collection

I'm a big Color Sensational fan, so I'm always excited when Maybelline releases new shades. Reader Joanne recently spotted the new Vivids display in Canada and was nice enough to share some pics. She confirmed that this display does not say "limited edition" so hopefully that means these are new additions to the permanent collection.

Also, it seems to be a trend as of late that Canada sees new drugstore products a month or so before the US (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter). If you spot these in the US, please do leave a comment and let us know!

Are you a bold lip color lover? What do you think of this collection so far? Curious to see these in person? If you're in Canada, do you already own any of these colors? Thoughts?

Thanks so much, Joanne, for the great pics and sighting!


  1. I wish Maybelline was cruelty-free :(

    1. I did not know that Maybelline was not cruelty free.. I figured that it was so popular that it was. This gives me a new outlook on picking up any of there products :( Thank's Mary Elle. I went shopping today for the new vivid lip collection and could not find them... Guess that was my sign.

  2. Seems like a summer collection to me!

  3. I have 1 of the lippies from the current line in US. i skipped anymore as i wasn't impressed w the 1 shade i own. however, these look interesting. i would def try 'em!

  4. I've seen these in several stores in Quebec. They are cheaper at WalMart than Shopper's - $7.96 vs $11.99

    Here is a link about the shades:

    I just picked up the Hot Plum shade #900. It's a very bright, almost matte, more satin finish than other shades I've bought in the past, purple shade. It's a very pink toned purple though, nowhere near goth. Bright & fresh. I think it will look good with the Raspberry Reflections Color Sensational gloss.

    The shades I was able to open to peek at were all creams, no sparkles/glitter/frost that I saw. There are also many that border on neons. One of the shades looked like a possible dupe to Mac's LE shade Candy Yum Yum.

  5. saw these at kmart today in california. the display was up very high and the only ones i could grab were: shocking coral, pink pop, the red and the plum. they are definitely neon and creme finishes.

  6. Also spotted these in kmart in Virginia, stashed up on a high shelf. I picked up some of the more wearable colors and they have beautiful pigmentations!

  7. These were at the Astor Place KMart in NYC for $6.99. I wear a bold lip almost every day so I was so excited to find these!!

  8. I saw these at Kmart here in KY and was so happy to have found them they are awesome!!!!!!

  9. Shut Up and Take My Money, Vivid Rose.
