Maybelline Neon Red ColorSensational Vivid Lipcolor ($7.49 for 0.14 oz.) is a bold, brightened red-orange with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. Maybelline Orange Edge is lighter, more orange than red. Maybelline Infra-red is very similar. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is lighter, more orange. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more matte. MAC Cockney is darker. Guerlain Genna is slightly darker. Hourglass Raven is more matte. See comparison swatches.

Neon Red had rich, true-to-tube color with full coverage. The consistency is lightly creamy, slightly slick, and it applied easily without tugging or dragging along the lips. Despite the slickness, I didn’t have issues with the color feathering while I wore it for six hours. It was lightly hydrating and did leave a faint stain behind after it wore away.

I’m not really into this color (don’t like reds), but this is imo the perfect lipstick finish. It looks so glossy, smooth and natural on the lips. I love that it doesn’t accentuate the lip lines like a lot of other opaque lipsticks do.

Ditto! This is the only lipstick finish that I truly like <3 and the color is so beautiful…it looks like chili..so hot :)) lol. maybe brighter than i would wear but still nice.

I have all of the Vivids (including the LE ones) and I LOVE them, especially since I have a tan. I have been wearing the Neon Red the most and I get compliments on it everytime I wear it. I am crossing my fingers they come out with some new colors for fall.

I just bought this one today. I was having such a tough time choosing between this and Infra-Red, but went with this because it’s like a baby step into the orange lipstick craze. And it looks great on me! Plus I love how the formula is even more comfortable to wear than the original generation Vivids. Hydrating, even!

Aw man, I bought this the other day thinking it would be stupidly bright like Lady Danger. If I had paid closer attention I would have noticed it’s slightly darker and not as neon. It still looks good on me, but it’s not the knockout red I expected it to be. At least it was on sale. 🙂
