Make Up For Ever C207 Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever C207 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. This was less glossy compared to the other two shades in this review, which may have been the result of a slightly thinner, less emollient consistency overall. It applied without tugging on the lips, and it was still comfortable on the lips, as it did not cling or dry them out. This shade had good pigmentation, though it wasn't fully opaque. On me, this shade wore well for over six hours and left a deep fuchsia stain behind. KVD Beauty Crush (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Smoked Rose (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar).
