Hey guys! Today’s video is a quick review and swatches of the new Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss. Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss was recently released and is a new gloss formula that reminds me a lot of the NARS Velvet Lip Glide.
There are 12 shades, but I only purchased eight since there were a couple of shades that were either too light or too wild (blue lips? Hard pass).

What I did not mention in the video is that these have incredible staying power! I like how long they wear and even after you remove it, you can still see somewhat of a stain. To take this off, I had to use Bioderma, a cleansing balm, AND go in with another actual cleanser. I get about six hours worth of wear with these guys.
The tacky feeling only lasts for about 30 minutes and after a while you forget that you’re even wearing anything.
The formula is light-medium in thickness. It’s not your typical lightweight lipgloss but also not goopy on the lips. Unlike liquid lipsticks, you don’t need to prep your lips with a lip balm. I would recommend exfoliating your lips because nothing is worse than intense color pigment no top of dry lips.
I didn’t have any issues with the lip color transferring onto my teeth or bleeding outside of my natural lipline. Since I do have darker lips, I would probably wear the red shades (So Hot and Classic) with a lip liner if I wanted that lipstick effect. Unreal has been my everyday nude lip color since it’s so beautiful.
Overall, I recommend these (especially if you’re looking for a dupe for the NARS Velvet Lip Glide).
