Okay, so this review has been a very long time in the making. I picked up the Maybelline Vivid Lipstick in On Fire Red last winter and am just now getting around to reviewing. Oops! But it all works out because now I can review it just in time for holiday party season.
I have several lipsticks from the Maybelline Vivid line and overall, they are just fantastic quality. On Fire Red is a classic primary red, slightly blue based. It applied really well, very even. I did need a couple of swiped for total opacity, but overall it was great.
The formula is very smooth and moisturizing and it wore really well. I didn't have a problem with it settling into lip lines or clinging to texture, even when worn without a lip primer. It also didn't feather on me, which is something of a miracle for a lipstick this creamy and pigmented.
The formula did stain my lips a bit (but show me a red that doesn't, ha!). It's not a super long wearing formula, but I did get a good 6 hours of wear out of it before I really needed to touch up. Obviously, if you're doing a lot of eating and/or drinking, that wear time will be diminished.
Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Lipsticks contain .15oz of product and are available wherever Maybelline is sold. I picked mine up at Target for under $6.
