Maybelline Fuchsia Flash ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline Fuchsia Flash ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, bold, and electric magenta pink with strong blue undertones and a glossy sheen. MAC Pink Pigeon is very similar in color but has more of a satin finish. Both OCC Nylon and MAC Candy Yum Yum are brighter and a touch lighter. MAC Dear Diary is a touch more magenta. MAC Show Orchid has fuchsia iridescence and is darker.
Well, if you’ve ever had one of those electric pink lipsticks catch your eye and you’ve thought to yourself, “I don’t know if I’d wear it,” and as a result, you haven’t justified buying one of the (many) higher-end versions of it, you’re in luck! Maybelline’s Fuchsia Flash is very much on-trend and is rather similar to popular neon pink favorites. The biggest way that Fuchsia Flash differs is that it has a glossier finish from the get-go, which does, inevitably, tone down and become more satiny as the color wears (two to three hours after application).
It has a creamier, almost gel-like, consistency when applied from the tube, and it applies evenly and smoothly with mostly opaque color coverage. The texture is a bit wet/slick, so it can create subtle lines of demarcation if you press your lips together (noticeable if you’re really looking, not noticeable from afar). Fuchsia Flash lasted a full six hours on my lips, and it was hydrating while I wore it! It is scented with a sweet, fruity aroma, which I didn’t find too strong or cloying but it is there.
