Make Up For Ever S502 Artist Face Color ($23.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer and easily built-up to full coverage if desired with not even a full second layer. The texture was smooth and moderately dense in the pan, and though it felt like the majority of the line, it did not blend out as evenly or as easily as other shades have for me. It looked a little patchy on me even after buffing and blending with vigor. It did wear really well at nine hours, but I just wish it was easier to work with on the skin. To make it more even, I would use my foundation brush and buff and blend the edges (though I did not do so when I tested for wear).
