Make Up For Ever Cream Beige (101) Artist Liquid Matte ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was thin but very fluid, almost too fluid (seemed to take extra effort to keep the product within the lines!). It dried down to a flat, matte finish that was transfer-proof. I noticed fading after five hours of wear, though it lasted closer to six hours before needing a touch-up or reapplication. The formula was slightly drying over time.
The Artist Liquid Matte formula is supposed to have "intense color" with an "ultra-matte finish" that is "long-lasting" and leaves lips feeling "soft, nourished." In general, the formula is quite pigmented with a smooth, thin texture that still had substance to it (but felt looser, like it was almost too easily spread across the lips) as it covered the lips well and didn't streak. The dry down time was average, and I felt like I could maneuver and perfect the edges without fear of it drying down on me. The formula dried down to a flat, matte finish that didn't transfer and did not appear "cracked." The wear varied from five to eight hours on me, and the formula felt slightly drying to non-drying. There was a heavy, floral scent, though--more detectable than the one in their regular lipstick range. While the tube did not seem unusually small, thin, or short, it contained a lot less product than is standard for liquid lipsticks.
Finally, a comfortable liquid lipstick with intense color in an ultra-matte finish. With concentrated pigments, Artist Liquid Matte provides truly matte, saturated color payoff with a lightweight feel. Its unique formula boasts beeswax for long-lasting wear and avocado oil for soft, nourished lips. The precise applicator coats and defines every peak and valley of your lips to perfection.
