NARS Provocative Red is a very warm-toned, medium plum with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $27.00 and contains 0.08 oz.
Provocative Red is described as a "fuchsia rose." It's a muted, medium-dark reddish-plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The texture wasn't too stiff or too creamy, so you still retained a very flat, matte finish but was fairly easy to apply without skipping. It wore for six hours but was a little drying over time. Burberry Redwood (304) (P, $30.00) is warmer, glossier. ColourPop Tulle (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted. View dupes side-by-side for comparisons here.
