I joined the band wagon little too late but have all the good excuses as they are still not launched in India, I picked 3 of these from ULTA and it took a little while to reach me here. You have seen HIMANI’s review for : VIVID ROSE and SMOKING CORAL and here I am with another stunning shade from VIVIDS RANGE – ON FIRE RED.

Price : $7.49.
Shade – On Fire Red is cool toned medium to dark classic cherry red shade which is very flattering on all skin tones provided you have courage to sport this.
- Texture – It has nice creamy texture, glides easily and sits pretty on my lips without settling in fine lines or bleeding. It is not super light weight but doesn’t feel too heavy; at this price point I don’t have any issues with the feel on lips. It has nice soft sheen to it which adds oomph to already amazing texture; you don’t need any gloss on top as they look shiny and glossy on their own .
- Pigmentation – It is amazingly pigmented and hardly requires layering; two layers are good enough to cover any sort of pigmentation on lips evenly.
MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor On Fire Red Swatches:-
MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor On Fire Red
- Staying power – I get some 4 plus hrs of wear with this and then it leaves nice tint on lips without making them feel dry and dehydrated.
- Packaging – They are packed in silver tube with orange cap, the sticker on bottom of the tube is same colour as the lipstick, it is not one of the best packaging but still at this price point it seems okay to me.
What I like about MAYBELLINE VIVIDS on Fire Red –
- I love the BRIGHT RED SHADE – so flattering.
- The pigmentation is BANG ON!
- The staying power is another plus point of these lipsticks.
- The price is the best part of these VIVID Lipsticks.
- They don’t settle in fine lines nor do they bleed.
What I don’t like about MAYBELLINE VIVIDS on Fire Red :-
- The packaging is not great but still not a big deal.
- The smell can be irritating to some.
Ratings 4.5/5 – I am absolutely in love with this range and already added 2 shades in my cart , shall pick soon. They are value for money, great shades with even more wonderful texture they are a must have if you love yourself some bright lipsticks.
