Every girl needs her favorite "true red" lipstick that isn't too berry colored and isn't too orange. That perfect red that goes with basically any outfit and that you don't have to refresh every hour on the hour to make sure that your lips are just as beautiful as before. I think I found my new favorite and that would be Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids in On Fire Red. The color of the container is what caught my attention at the store and the name is what kept me interested, then since my hands were full with other products I asked my boyfriend to lift the lid and show me the color and I knew I had to have it without even reading anyone else's review, which is something I do on a regular basis to make sure that I'm not wasting my money on a product that I won't love. I guess it's lucky that I really loved this lip color.
As you can see the color is a nice "true" red. What this means, if you don't already know, is that it's not too orange and not too pink/purple. It's just red. It looks like this when you put it on which really makes certain eye colors (like my icy blue) pop and you can wear it any time of the year that you want to. You may have to put it on once then wait a few seconds and put on another layer to get the right color which isn't too much of a hassle. Especially considering this lipstick stays on a pretty long time. I wore it all day and only had to reapply after I ate something (which is something I personally would have done anyways just because I'm especially anal about my makeup lately when I'm out). It's always safest to bring your tube of lipstick with you just in case you need to reapply, even if you're positive you won't have to.
As far as the texture of the lipstick goes it isn't too slippery and it also isn't too dry on. You can rub your lips together comfortably the whole time you have it on, although I wouldn't recommend doing this because it can increase the number of times that you have to reapply. It's a habit of mine, and probably a habit that a lot of you are stuck with also, but it's something that we all need to break. The only complaint that I have is that it is kind of drying. I had to pile on some lip balm before I went to bed the day that I wore this stuff. But it's definitely still worth the money that I spent on it which was only about $8.00 and I would also highly recommend it to a friend and my readers.
What's your favorite lip shade right now? Do you have any true reds that you'd recommend? Are you more of a red or a pink lipstick kind of girl? How do you like the sneak peak of my new carpets? (; Let me know what you guys think!
