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.

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.
