Charlotte Tilbury Tell Laura Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff (not what I'd call buildable--you'd have to use just a pat and blend with fingertips for sheerer coverage!) that went on smoothly and evenly. This shade is in the Matte Revolution formula, and it had a more matte finish and felt a smidgen clingy, but this shade was denser and a little heavier than most of the Matte Revolution range. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was neither just slightly hydrating. Tarte Mai Tai (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Barbecue (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar).
