Maybelline Infra-Red ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline Infra-Red ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Infra-Red ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is an orange-toned red with a glossy, luminous finish. MAC Everyday Diva is lighter.MAC Ruffian Red has gold shimmer. MAC Red Racer is more neutral. MAC Must Be Red is less bright. MAC Cockney isn’t quite as opaque but is very close in color. Guerlain Genna is slightly more orange.  See comparison swatches.

It was rich in color with opaque color coverage. The consistency is lightly creamy with some slip, so it glided across lips easily and distribued even, opaque color well. Because of the creaminess, it leaves behind a slightly glossy finish.  Despite the slip, it still wears quite well, as Infra-Red lasted six hours on me and left behind a noticeable stain that lingered for another hour and a half.  I found the formula lightly hydrating during the time I wore it.  It has a lightly fruity scent but no discernible taste.

    I usually don’t go for drugstore lipsticks but I like the gloss this has, and if you give it this rating it will definitely be worth a try!! (And I don’t mind saving a few dollars either!)

    Hiya, do you have any idea if this goes by a different name in the UK? I’m looking for it online (Boots) and the only red online is called “Neon Red”, plus on the Maybelline website I see only Neon Red (890) and On Fire Red (895) out of the 10 shades? Thank you!

  8. I love red lipstick! Whether it’s matte or glossy, creamy or shimmery, sheer or opaque, light or dark… I just love red lipstick. Will definitely pick the Maybelline Infra-Red!
    Thanks for the Share!

    Smashbox makes an infra-red matt lip which rocks! It’s a richer, less tomato red. Be Legendary formula.

    I don’t really think ruffian red has gold shimmer. It’s a matte warm red shade.

    Orange-red and hydrating you say? Perhaps I’ll have to pick this up as a Genna dupe since I’ve still been too poor to buy the guerlain.

  12. I have this and Cockney love them both! Orange toned red lipstick looks good on my complexion.

    Wonderfull color, i love orange based red lipstick.I just want to ask you Cristine how does this compare to roude d’armani in 401.By the way your smile is so beautyful and bright in every single snapshot.

  14. That’s so pretty! I don’t usually wear lipstick, but that shade of red is perfect.
