Maybelline Brazen Berry ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a creamy, fuchsia magenta with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-glossy finish. MAC Heroine is darker and purpler–plus nearly matte. MAC Seductive Intent is a bit more magenta but closer than Heroine. MAC Spitfire is similar. MAC Style Curve is also similar but has violet shimmer. MAC Love Forever is pinker. Dolce & Gabbana Violet is purpler and lighter. MAC Night Blooming is slightly brighter. Shiseido Fuchsia RS 320 is a touch more magenta.

It has semi-opaque color payoff, enough that it adds substantial color to the lip, but there’s a translucency that enables the natural lip color to peek through. The consistency of this shade was very, very slick and creamy–it did not apply quite as evenly as other shades I’ve tried have. Brazen Berry was moisturizing, wore well for six hours (and left a stain behind), and was comfortable to wear. You may get lines if you press your lips together, so it’s important to apply just enough for even coverage but not so much that there’s excess product. Because the color is brighter and bolder, the lines that do get created are harder to see.
