C211 (Holiday 2017) is a medium-dark mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that glided across the lips easily and was comfortable to wear. The color applied evenly and lasted for five hours on me with a lightly hydrating formula. It did, however, differ dramatically enough from the permanent version that I had to label them separately as their respective Dupe Lists wouldn't make sense!

Now saturated with 25 percent more pigment than the original Rouge Artist, Artist Rouge Lipstick brings bold color impact to lips that make a statement. This extremely pigmented formula not only provides intense, opaque color but boasts an ultra-creamy, non-drying formula that hydrates the lips for ultimate comfort. Its unique, precision shaped bullet allows for easy, defined application while the long wear formula will not bleed or feather. Artist Rouge is a bold collection that is professionally curated to include the most flattering shades across all color families—with a perfect match for each and every skintone. It features two finishes: a matte for an ultra-matte yet velvety finish that won't feel dry and a cream for intense color with a natural-looking, creamy finish.
