A side-by-side screenshot is required here.
Color inconsistencies always mean that the color management chain is breaking down somewhere. It can be in an application without color management (like the Windows desktop, or any given web browser), or it can be corrupt/missing/wrong profiles. A screenshot should narrow it down.
We need to see the screenshots to help resolve your colour issue.
However there is another issue with that workflow you describe (it will not lead to the colour problems but will reduce quality). You are saving the same image to jpeg twice in your workflow. Each time that will reduce the quality (jpeg is a "lossy" format)
A better workflow would be :
Start in Lightroom as you do now.
To go to Photoshop, use "Edit in Photoshop" and when you have finished in Photoshop just press save. This will give you a copy alongside your original - saved as a TIFF/PSD (depending on Lightroom Preferences) complete with layers etc that you can re-open and re-edit later if required
-Export to jpeg from Lightroom as you do now
Like I said - this is unlikely to be the cause of your colour issues - but should improve the final quality.
You don't seem to mention whether your monitor is calibrated. If not, you can spend all your time matching colours to a bad monitor setup, so colours are wrong everywhere else.
We're not looking at your monitor, so all I'm seeing is much the same colour. Is the colour right? I don't know, it's very bright and saturated.
But calibrating a monitor isn't thing that is just done and forgotten. You must tell your software to use that calibration, otherwise it's like shooting blindfold. What monitor profile is in use? Where is it from?
Posting the file itself doesn't tell us anything.
Post a screenshot that shows the same image open in Photoshop and, say, Windows "Photos". Put them side by side and press "print screen" - then open Photoshop and paste the clipboard into a new file. Post that.
Windows Photos is not color managed, and so the two will not be identical. That's normal. But exactly how they differ can narrow down what's happening.
It's important you understand that the file isn't "changed" in any way by saving. The question is how different applications display it - correctly or not.
