Make Up For Ever S404 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, plummy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The powder had a moderately dense texture, which gave it a smooth feel across the surface without kicking up powder, but it took a slightly heavier hand or denser brush to pick up product--I would not call it difficult, though. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on for nine hours on my skin. The issue I had with it was that the color took more effort to diffuse and blend out for even application.
