Make Up For Ever M102 Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever M102 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, plum-berry with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the better shades in the Matte finish; richly pigmented paired with a lightweight, smooth, and velvety consistency that applied easily. The texture didn't appear dry or unforgiving on the lips, but it didn't have a strong sheen (though it is not the ultra matte finish of some of the popular liquid lipstick formulas). This shade wore well for over six hours, left behind a fuchsia stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. NARS Trashed (LE, $27.00) is more muted (95% similar).
