Make Up For Ever M206 is a moderately cool-toned, dark mauve with a satin finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Make Up For Ever M206 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark mauve with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips with ease and never felt clingy. I actually felt like it seeemed a lot creamier than past mattes--more like a hybrid between the Cream and Matte formulas (see my original overview). The formula wore well for five and a half hours and was 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.
