Make Up For Ever C211 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark rosy mauve with warm undertones and a satin finish. This shade had very nearly opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully--evenly, smoothly, and made lips appear plumper and healthier. It had a creamy, lightweight consistency that glided across lips with ease but did not slide around once on. This shade wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating over time.
