Maybelline On Fire Red Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick Review

 Maybelline's new Color Sensational Vivid is a bright new line of lipsticks that promise "brighter colors from exclusive vivid pigments" with a "honey nectar formula to nourish the lips." Maybelline offers ten shades, I have On Fire Red. Beauty Bloggers have been going nuts for these lipsticks, but I kinda neglected them, I was too excited about the Color Whisper Lipsticks. I bought this lipstick at Walmart for about $4.50 with a dollar off coupon, though the price will vary by location. The lipstick was made in the USA. Unfortunately Maybelline does test on animals.

 I have really mixed feelings about the Color Sensational Vivids  packaging. These lipsticks come in silver tubes with a bright, translucent red cap. Nothing too fancy, nothing at all really. No Maybelline logo or any indication of the product name. I also feel like neon red wasn't a good choice because I think a handful of consumers will assume that the lipstick housed in the red tube will be red, and can you really blame them, especially when more and more brands are color-coordinating their packaging. I think Maybelline could've chosen a more neutral, non-traditional lipstick color, like yellow or something. The other problem I see with having a bright red cap is that you can't tell what the color of the product is without opening it, which can lead to more compromised products in the store. It looks nice if you don't want to look at it from a logical point. A label is affixed to the bottom of the tube, listing the shade name and number.
 The texture of Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivid is slightly better than average. Application is pretty easy, I wouldn't say that this lipstick glides on, there's a little bit of a pull to it, but it isn't too bad. These lipsticks, or at least On Fire Red is so rich with pigment, so it feels a little thick or heavy on the lips. Despite the thickness this lipstick is quite moist and creamy, very comfortable to wear on the lips. While On Fire Red doesn't slip around on the lips it does tend to transfer onto cups and straws. Wear time for Maybelline's On Fire Red is decent, it sticks around of around two hours then leaves behind a stain for about another hour. Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids have no flavor, but they do have a bit of cherry scent to them.
 On Fire Red is a classic red with a blue undertone. . This lipstick gives that classic cherry red lip that a lot of women love, but a lot of women also fears. On Fire Red has a moist looking satin find that keeps this shade from being too strong. On Fire Red is a very opaque lipstick, I don't like to wear it full on, I prefer to apply it then blot off at least half, leaving behind a really pretty, much more wearable reddish pink stain.
[this stuff makes my lips look even more crooked then they are]
I like Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick in On Fire Red. The formula is nice, its very creamy and comfortable, and impressively pigmented. This shade is a great selection if you're on the hunt for a classic, cool, cherry red. I feel like the packaging could be improved upon. The price point for these lipsticks is a bargain if you consider the quality. I wouldn't repurchase On Fire Red, it isn't a color I'm going to reach for very often. I would however try a different shade, maybe Shocking Coral, Vivid Rose, or Electric Orange. I do recommend the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids line as a whole.
