Editor's Review

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). Lancome Pigeon Blood Ruby (481) (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Josephine (LE, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). ColourPop Tiana (LE, $10.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (DC, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Smashbox Brick Trick (P, $24.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). MAC Runner (LE, $19.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Bad Behavior (LE, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Diva (P, $19.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Hex (DC, $18.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (90% similar). MAC Dionysus (DC, $21.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). ColourPop Sarah (LE, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Your Majesty (DC, $37.00) is more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (DC, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Malt Shake (29) (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Doge (210) (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty #001 (LE, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever Mighty Maroon (420) (P, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Desirous (P, $32.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Shiseido Curious Cassis (RD620) (DC, $28.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.
