Anastasia Cobalt Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, deep bluish purple with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be something in it that gave off a stronger sheen, almost like shimmer, but it was hard to tell if there was any actual, ultra-fine shimmer in it in the bullet itself. The consistency was firmer, so it tugged on the lips as it applied but applied the color decently and did not skip around. It had good pigmentation, though it was not opaque, and shades I've tested so far, it had a stronger tendency to get into my lip lines. It lasted for over six hours and stained my lips a faded plum color (more like an early bruise) but was non-drying.
