Make Up For Ever Rosewood (105) Artist Liquid MatteMake Up For Ever Rosewood (105) Artist Liquid Matte ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. The liquid lipstick felt thin without being watery, so it spread easily across the lips but did not appear streaky. The color stayed on nicely for six and a half hours, and the formula was mostly non-drying.
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.
