Editor's Review

MAC Power Driven Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "deep wine burgundy [with a Matte finish]." It's a deep, reddish burgundy with subtle, cooler undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly but emphasized lip lines slightly as some color settled into the crevices for me. The color wore well for over six hours as well as stained heavily, but it was slightly drying. MAC Media (P, $19.00) is glossier (95% similar). Tarte High Dive (P, $21.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Orchid (LE, $57.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Deep Secret (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Ginette (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Burberry Black Cherry (439) (P, $35.00) is darker (95% similar). Dior Ultra Poison (883) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay White Walker (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Midnight Merlot (DC, $7.49) is cooler (90% similar). ColourPop Tutu (LE, $7.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Carnivorous (P, $21.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Rouge Audace (59) (LE, $45.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Eugenie (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Patrick Ta She Must Be New (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Hello Stranger (P, $10.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Beatrix (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Dahlia (10) (LE, $55.00) is lighter (90% similar). KVD Beauty Motorhead (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Rock with You (P, $26.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar). KVD Beauty Motorhead (DC, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

This color was beautiful in the tube, however went on my lips a much different color. After prepping and priming I applied the product. It was very pigmented but not near as dark of a shade as I expected. I've tried applying directly and also with a brush, I've used it with a M.A.C. primer and I've tried it with my Bite Beauty primer. I cannot get it to look even and I find it to be only semi-matte, and even after a powder sweep it is still extremely transferable. My search for the perfect fall color, to my dismay, shall continue.
