Danessa Myricks Desert Rose Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a richer, medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The product was incredibly pigmented where a little went a long way, so I'd definitely recommend squeezing out a small amount on the back of one's hand or onto a metal palette to avoid over-applying.
The quick-drying nature of the formula (which was as marketed!) meant using less and building up made for the best results as blending quickly was critical to success, so over-application of product made blending difficult and there wasn't a lot of room for course-correction. The color applied evenly to eyes, lips, and cheeks, and it was fairly blendable, particularly with fingertips when I used it as a blush. I preferred using a flat, synthetic brush to get the initial product onto my lid and then using a separate, clean fluffy brush to diffuse the edges.
It wore well for 10 hours before fading a little bit as an eye product, around nine hours as a cheek product, and five and a half hours as a lip product. As a lip product, it had a noticeable dry down that was lightly tacky--but didn't lift up color when I pressed my lips together--and somewhat flexible; it felt lightly drying over time but was more comfortable than some liquid lipsticks.
