MAC La Vie En Rouge Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "bright orange coral." It's a brightened, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It's the kind of shade that's so bright that it plays tricks on your eyes (stare at this for awhile, then stare at something neutral!). It had a lightly creamy consistency that wasn't heavy, slightly clingy (but not in an uncomfortable way), and lasted for six and a half hours (probably wearable until about eight before you really needed to reapply). It was a little drying towards the end. Gucci Beauty Hibiscus Thrill (P, $39.00) is sheerer, lighter. NARS Kelly (P, $32.00) is lighter. NARS Grace (P, $32.00) is glossier. Chanel La Malicieuse (46) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever #37 (P, $19.00) is a bit lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
