Anastasia Griffin Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was firm in the tube, so the lipstick tugged as it applied, though the color went on fairly evenly and did not drag or appear ragged on. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that lasted for a good five hours, while the formula felt lightweight and non-drying.

good: long lasting, felt edgy but appropriate to who I am (40-something woman who works in an office setting)
not so good: if you don't exfoliate, when the color fades you will have bits of grey in your lip lines and may look undead._
