Danessa Myricks Truth Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a blackened purple with warmer, brownish undertones and flecks of copper and violet sparkle throughout. When it was more opaque, it had a cooler, purpler hue, but the sheerer it was applied, the browner it appeared. I struggled to apply it as a cheek color as it looked quite patchy, which made it look like a legitimate bruise. It was easier to get a plummy effect on my eye that didn't require as much diffusion, so as long as I had it medium or higher coverage, I could work with it evenly.
The texture was smooth, somewhat spreadable, and quick to dry down (which was a feature of the formula). It had opaque color coverage that was easiest to use at higher coverage than it was to really sheer out. As a lip product, it had mostly opaque coverage but separated along my lip lines and was slightly patchy, which I couldn't correct. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours as an eyeshadow and five hours as a lip product; it felt non-drying over time as a lip product.
