M100 is a muted, light-medium peach with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency had a velvety feel, so it did not drag on my lips at all, though it had a drier look on the lips. It actually applied a bit better than the full-sized tube I have, but it had a similar drier appearance on the lips. The color stayed on well for four hours and was slightly drying.

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.
