Hermes Orange Boite (33) Rouge Matte Lipstick ($67.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly, but the consistency was thin and a bit clingy, which made it appear more uneven than I think it was.
The formula was unforgiving of lip texture, lip lines, and any imperfections on my lips--keep in mind that I exfoliate my lips prior to swatching as part of my routine!--and settled noticeably into my lip lines. The settling/separation along my lip lines worsened over time; the color lasted for four hours and felt non-drying.
