Make Up For Ever M608 Red Brown Artist Color Shadow ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was good, though not quite opaque in one layer but was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, a smidgen dusty but rather smooth and almost velvety to the touch. The eyeshadow blended out easily on the lid with little effort and combined well with the various finishes in the range. On me, it wore well for 10 hours before fading slightly. The original shade was slightly warmer and more pigmented, though the new formula blended out more easily on bare skin for me (the two were about the same over primer) (see side-by-side comparison).
