Make Up For Ever C209 Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever C209 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink with soft, bluish undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly for the most part. This shade seemed to have more slip than other shades, which I think is why it did not apply as richly as a shade like C208. I didn't have any issues with the color feathering or sliding around much, but the wear time was four and a half hours, which is on the shorter side of the wear spectrum for this formula. It seemed more hydrating, though. Hourglass I Love (P, $34.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rosie (LE, $36.00) is glossier (95% similar).
