Tom Ford Orchid Fatale Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark berry-red with cool undertones and faint fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, but I noticed some of the color pulled into lip lines. I don’t think it’s as noticeable as some other darker glosses have been, and I didn’t notice it at a normal viewing distance. The consistency was thin and water-like going on but thickened and felt more gel-like with moderate tackiness after half a minute. It wore well for eight and a half hours with the glossiness wearing away after five hours. Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is more muted, cooler (95% similar). MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Black Cherry (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
