Maybelline Shocking Coral ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color
Maybelline Shocking Coral ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold coral-red with a luminous finish and warm undertones. Laura Mericer Hydrangea is lighter. Maybelline Vivid Rose is redder, darker. MAC Impassioned is pinker, less red-toned. MAC Party Parrot is a bit brighter and more intense, but it has more of a matte finish, too. Make Up For Ever #37 is warmer, less red.
It is rich in color with very nearly opaque color coverage (the way it lies on lips gives it a subtle translucency that keeps the color from looking heavy on the lips). There’s a slight glossiness to the color because of its lightweight, creamy consistency that has some slip to it. It glides evenly over the lips without pulling or dragging. Shocking Coral wore for six hours, and it did leave behind a soft stain for another hour or so. The lipstick was comfortable to wear, and it was lightly moisturizing when I wore it.
