Make Up For Ever M103 is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark mauve with a matte finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Make Up For Ever M103 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage that had that more matte finish but did not appear flat or chalky on the lips. I felt like the formula was creamier than past mattes--more like a hybrid between the Cream and Matte formulas (see my original overview). It glided on easily but adhered for solid, five-hour wear. The formula felt non-drying while worn.

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.
