Maybelline Electric Orange is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark orange with a natural finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $7.99 and contains 0.15 oz.
Maybelline Electric Orange ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to the lips. The lipstick was lightly creamy with moderate slip but did not slide around while worn. I did notice a subtle amount of color that had settled into my lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.
I've reviewed this formula (and I believe the majority of shades released) before, but it's one of my favorite drugstore lipstick formulas and wanted to update swatches. I was dismayed to see how many shades were discontinued, though, as there are only seven in the current range. The Vivids formula is supposed to have "vibrant color" and a hydrating feel. I repurchased the seven shades still available, and I re-tested them (and re-swatched/photographed!). Overall, the Vivids formula has a very smooth, creamy consistency that has moderate slip and a luminous sheen and semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation. They felt hydrating to me over time and were comfortable to wear. They have a moderate, sweet, floral scent but no discernible taste.
Be bright and gorgeous with Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor collection. Brighter color from exclusive vivid pigments. Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar.
