Bette is a rich, deep red-burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even color. The texture was lightly creamy with moderate slip with a thinner feel than most of the Audacious range, but I didn't experience any feathering with this shade. The color lasted for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was just a touch hydrating. Maybelline Smoking Red (DC, $7.49) is less glossy (95% similar).
