Make Up For Ever C206 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium magenta-pink with cooler undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. The texture had more slip to it, and the color slid around on the lips, which caused the color to look uneven, occasionally streaky, and some of the color pulled into lip lines. While it was comfortable to wear, as it was hydrating, it was a more high-maintenance shade that would benefit from a lip primer or lip liner. It had mostly opaque color payoff, which lasted for four and a half hours on me. Bite Beauty #007 (LE, $36.00) is less glossy (95% similar). NARS Angela (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar).
