Make Up For Ever M206 Artist Rouge LipstickMake Up For Ever M206 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque payoff at most. The consistency felt creamy and comfortable to apply to the lips, but it applied terribly with streakiness, unevenness, and color that gathered on itself and looked grainy on the lips. To top it all off, the color separated at my lip lines and made them appear more prominent. It lasted for four and a half hours but color further pulled into my lines over time. The formula was, at the very least, not drying, so there was a margin upside.
