Make Up For Ever Creative Violet (212) Rouge Artist Lipstick (2020) ($23.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark purple with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, while the product applied evenly over my lips and didn't settle into my lip lines.
There was a little bit of streakiness around the edge of my lips, but it wasn't enough to be apparent to my eye in person. The texture felt lightly creamy, smooth, and thin with a little bit of velvetiness. It wore nicely for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
