ColourPop Evil Queen Matte Lux Lipstick ($7.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark red with strong, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a dense, slightly firmer consistency that didn't drag but didn't feel as velvety as other shades in the range. I didn't find it uncomfortable to apply or to wear, as it was still lightweight without clinging onto my lips. Thankfully, that also meant that it didn't emphasize my lip texture or my lip lines. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, left a strong, reddish stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
