The color is very, very pigmented and opaque. It can be a little bit intense for those (like moi!) who shy away from bright, opaque colors--it can almost come across as neon if you apply it to heavily. I prefer to blot it down a bit or apply a gloss over it to make it a bit more wearable! It is such a flattering bright color though. I can see it working for a variety of skin tones, but it would probably suit warmer skin tones since the color is so warm itself! It's really a color you should try yourself--I've seen swatches online where it leans more orange and others where it leans more pink so i think it really depends on your skintone and how pigmented your lips are!
In terms of the formula, Vegas Volt is an amplified creme so it is very smooth and creamy, making them a dream to wear on the lips! No dryness or discomfort at all and the lipstick doesn't settle into fine lines at all!
Here's some comparisons to some other orange and coral lipsticks I own:
|L-R: Mac Everhip, Mac Vegas Volt, Mac Morange, Revlon Kiss Me Coral|
You can see me wearing Vegas Volt with a gloss on top in a recent post HERE!
Do you like Vegas Volt? What is your favorite coral lipstick?
