Avon Vitalicious Lipstick in Reviving Red
Compared to Guerlain Vega
Shade: Vega is a touch deeper than Reviving Red. But their difference is very slim, almost unnoticeable. They both have blue undertones.
Opacity: Vega is more opaque than Reviving Red, probably because Vega has creamier / thicker consistency.
Finish: They're very similar, but Reviving Red feels lighter on my lips. They both have a glossy finish; almost a satin but has a little more sheen to it.
Longevity: Because they have the same finish, they're tied with the hours of wear.
Packaging: Reviving Red's packaging is pretty good for me. It's your typical black packaging with a sophisticated silver design. But, Vega's packaging is awesome! It's very luxurious! It's like technology meets glamor.
Scent / taste: Reviving Red has a sweet and citrusy scent and taste that I really love. It's not overwhelming unlike Vega's rose-like scent and taste (nope, not a fan of rose scented products).
Price: Of course, Reviving Red is way more affordable than Vega. I think I can buy at least 4 Reviving Red for the price of 1 Vega.

Lower lip: Vega
To sum it all up: Reviving Red is an excellent red lipstick if you're looking for a mauvey red. It's also a good dupe for Guerlain Vega. I'm more of a bright retro red type of girl, but having this in my stash makes me happy because at least I have something different.
I will repurchase when I don't find something better.
