Maybelline On Fire Red ColorSensational Vivid Lipcolor
Maybelline On Fire Red ColorSensational Vivid Lipcolor

Maybelline On Fire Red ColorSensational Vivid Lipcolor ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark red with rosy pink tones and a soft, blue undertone. Tom Ford Beauty Vampire Kiss (LE, $45.00) is less glossy. Chanel La Precieuse (317) (LE, $34.00) is more matte. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Glam (DC, $16.00) is darker, less glossy. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $16.00) is less glossy. Buxom Scoundrel (P, $21.00) is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

It’s a bold, bright traffic-stopping red with a naturally glossy, lightly luminous, finish. The color payoff was incredibly rich and opaque, while the finish gave it a juicy, plump look on the lips. It wears as long as six hours on me and leaves behind a noticeable red stain that lingers for another couple of hours. The formula is lightly creamy, comfortable to wear, and lightly hydrating. The Vivids range is one of my favorite lipstick formulas, especially for bold, creamy color, and On Fire Red is just one more shade worth checking out if you’re on the hunt for a cooler-toned red.

  5. Beautiful shade! I don’t have any of the Vivids…worried they might be too “vivid” on me. But they always seem so great when you review them. Might need to check them out…

  6. Whenever I’m near the vivids display I keep swatching this shade. lol

    That colour is absolutely gorgeous!

  10. That’s really beautiful! I feel a trip to CVS? Ulta? Target? coming on!

    I tend to shy away from such bright reds, as they tend to pull either too orange or pink on me, but I think this one seems to be one that will remain red. I think I’ll have to look for this one… Maybelline has always been a great DS brand (with the exception of powder eyeshadows), but they’re really stepping it up, lately!

  12. Beautiful! This looks like a great summer red.

  13. Raven

    its more cherry than a fiery shade. it is pretty, but maybelline lipsticks always bleed on me

    • I agree – it’s not what I think of when I think “fire!” I had to double check the color to make sure it wasn’t really orange-based when I first tested it, lol!

  14. Jenny

    It’s a gorgeous red on you! Looks glossy without gloss.

  15. This is a pretty color, but I think it would be too warm on me. Very pretty!

  16. Avatar of Urfa StrangeOne

    If I weren’t looking for something warmer I would love this.

    I was wearing my electric orange vivid today for a wedding, ate something reaalllllly greasy, danced till I was sweaty and I’ve still got fully stained lips!

    IS IT A NEW COLOR?

    The moment I saw this review I got really excited hoping that the might *finally* be a cool red from this line. And thank god there is one! All of the orange-reds and red-oranges were getting so boring :)

  19. Darn it, I’d been trying to tell myself I didn’t need this one – who am I kidding?! Gorgeous swatches & great review as always Christine :)

    This is one of my fave reds ( and I have many) and it looks great on you! Maybelline and Revlon have really raised the bar for drugstore lipsticks over the past couple of years; the vivids are the best drugstore lipstick, in my opinion. And thank goodness for the reformulating some drugstore brands have done because nice but affordable makeup just makes life a little better! :)

  21. Wow, I can’t stop staring at the cover photo/beauty shot! It’s so eye-catching that it’s almost hypnotic!

  22. Yes! Cool-toned! And Yes! A brand that exists in this country! :-D

    We’re on to a winner, folks – I may just have to go and check this one out! Thanks Christine ^_^

  23. I Have three of the vivids and the formulation is pretty good for drugstore! This is a nice red color but I already have a maybelline lipstick close to the same shade that they made for fashion week.::

  24. I love this shade on you. I’m really impressed with Maybelline!
