Signature Scarlet (020) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a warm-toned, orange-based medium red with a creamy, glossy finish. It’s nearly opaque (there’s just a hint of translucency), and the consistency is medium-weight and applies evenly. It wears for five hours on me. Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is similar. NARS Wonder (LE, $25.00) is more orange, more muted. NARS Hollywoodlawn (LE, $26.00) is slightly more muted. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) is less opaque–the colors are very similar but Maybelline’s with respect to performance. See comparison swatches.
