Ardency Inn Original Mix Modster Long Play Lip Vinyl ($23.00 for 0.28 oz.) is described as a “red base with orange and neon pink reflects.” It’s a bright, orange-based red with a creamy, shiny finish. Giorgio Armani #400 (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, sheerer. Urban Decay Theodora (LE, $19.00) is less glossy. Urban Decay Punch Drunk (P, $19.00) is more orange. Maybelline Neon Red (P, $7.49) is less glossy, more orange. MAC Driven by Love (P, $19.50) is blue-based. See comparison swatches.

This is my first time trying Ardency Inn, and this is the only shade I’ve tried in the Lip Vinyl formula, but it’s an extremely pigmented, long-wearing gloss with a high-shine finish that’s slightly glossy. Though it’s described as “non-sticky, thin,” my first thoughts were, “Wow, this is thick and sticky,” so I very much disagree with those two aspects of the description. It has a curved, sponge-tip applicator so it can hug the curve of the lip. The formula is very opaque and one pass will get you full color coverage. Because of the thicker consistency of the product, it can get on teeth initially, so you’ll want to make sure to clean-up any excess. It wore well with noticeble shine for four and a half hours, and then it was not as shiny but still continued to have opaque color for another two hours. It was lightly hydrating while worn, and I didn’t notice any smell/taste to the formula.

If you’re familiar with formulas like Stila’s Vinyl Lipgloss or MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipglass and like either of those, then you’ll probably like this one (and vice versa).

I know I’m in the minority here, but I don’t mind my glosses being slightly thick and tacky – they stay in place better on me! I rarely buy high end gloss, but I might add this one to the wishlist. I love these bright, bold reds. 🙂
