Make Up For Ever C104 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy peach with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. It had great pigmentation that applied with smooth, even coverage and sat well on the lips. The consistency was creamy enough to glide on and fill in lip lines to give the illusion of healthier lips while not being too emollient and sliding around. It wore well for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Edie (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Tarte Pink Lemonade (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar).
