Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color

Maybelline Orange Edge ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark orange with strong red undertones and a luminous sheen. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is very similar–it doesn’t read quite as glossy but you don’t need both. MAC Scarlet Ibis is close in color but matte in finish. MAC Sail La Vie is mostly matte and a touch lighter. OCC Psycho is a bit more orange and matte. See comparison swatches.

Whew, boy! Orange Edge is incredibly pigmented in a single swipe; you’ll have no trouble getting full color coverage with this shade.  It is similar enough to Vibrant Mandarin (which is permanent) that if you can’t find this particular shade locally, I’d consider opting for the permanent shade instead.  The consistency was creamy with some slip and slickness, so it glided easily across the lips without tugging or pulling.  It also applied with even, smooth color coverage, and it felt comfortable to wear.  Orange Edge lasted six hours well on me and left a reddish stain for another hour.

As a note:  the packaging of this one was off; the bullet twisted up very, very slowly and wasn’t normal at all but not totally broken.

    My mom, who passed away just one month shy of her 94th birthday a couple of years ago, loved orange lipsticks. The last one she bought was MAC’s Morange. I’m buying this in her honor. (And it looks stunning on you, Christine).

    I love this colour! How does this lipstick compare to morange by MAC? Wondering if it is different enough to justify purchasing this one haha! I love orange lippy, and Morange is one of my favourites.
    Great review as always! Keep up the awesome work.

  3. Love this shade! But I already have both Vibrant Mandarin and Sail La Vie.

  4. This looks gorgeous! I love this colour so much and it really compliments your skintone

  5. I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Fully pigmented, moisturizing and IMO, a nice orange that compliments darker skin tones (I’m NC 55/MUFE #178). Appropriate for work and play.

  6. That colour looks soooo pretty on you! I’m normally not a fan of oranges on myself…but I think I will give this a try.

  7. Nouvelle Vaguely

    Love this lipstick, bought it the other day and have not stopped wearing it since!

    What a gorgeous colour! My favourite of the sensational vivids is Neon red, so juicy..Love it!

  9. This has quickly become my signature color! I’m just so so so in love with this lipstick. And at that price, I don’t mind stocking up before it’s gone. Truly a happy day when a drug store line is so great! I have nearly all the vivids now and love each of them. They out-perform many of my high-end lipsticks!

    You always post two pictures of the lip color. What is the difference between the two? Thanks, I love your site!

    How is this compared to MAC’s neon orange?

  12. I have this, on darker lips it shows up a bit more orange

  13. LOVE this one too. I didn’t buy Sail La Vie, so maybe I’ll pick up this instead.

    Those “vivids” lipsticks are SOOOO amazing! I really wish they were permanent…
