Hermes Rose Velours (78) Rouge Matte Lipstick ($67.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. Of the shades I tried, it had the most matte finish from the get-go, and it also applied the best, though it was lightly drying over time.
One layer yielded nearly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was very lightweight, thin, and somewhat clingy in feel (it felt dry almost from the get-go), but it wasn't as prone to emphasizing lip lines and lip texture compared to other shades in the range. It wore well for six hours and left a faint stain behind.
