Make Up For Ever M104 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, brownish burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It did not appear matte--there was a definite sheen going on--and took two hours before the shine worn down to something more matte. The texture of the lipstick was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging but did not feel slippery. It had good color coverage, though it was not fully opaque in one layer. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. There was slight color that gathered in my lip lines over time.
