For its price, this is an outstanding lipstick. It delivers bright, nearly opaque coverage in a single swipe. I wouldn’t necessarily compare its intensity to a lipstick like Morange, but it’s defiantly enough brightness, pigment and intensity for the average consumer.
For me personally, I wanted it to be a little more opaque. My lip color shows through a little, but I have really pigmented lips. I suggest putting some lip erase, concealer or foundation underneath.
Electric Orange is a budget-friendly version of many true-orange dupes in the higher end range (like MAC or Illamasqua). This is truly pigmented–one swipe delivers near opaque coverage. This isn’t a super bright orange, but it’s an intense orange, a bit on the warm side…so it doesn’t work well with my skin color. This is a lipstick you’ll either like or hate.
Maybelline Electric Orange ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighteneed, medium-dark orange with warm, reddish undertones and a subtle sheen. We’ve definitely seen this kind of orange from several brands, but this is a more budget-friendly version. MAC Fashion Nomad is more matte. MAC Morange is perhaps a touch lighter. MAC Neon Orange is not as glossy. Illamasqua Flare is matte. Clarins Clementine has a faint shimmer.
