Make Up For Ever C601 Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever C601 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium mint green with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly, but it did pull into lip lines, and there were a few patchy places. For the type of color it is, the application was still better than usual, but this needs a primer or lip liner underneath to help it apply better. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and felt hydrating over the four and a half hours it lasted. Dior Clover Matte (400) (LE, $35.00) is darker, more muted, lower quality (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Whatever (DC, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). ColourPop Charm (LE, $7.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).
