Maybelline Cruel Ruby ColorSensational Powder Matte Lipstick ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was one of the better-applying shades as it was dense and firmer but not quite as stiff, so it wasn't painful to apply and was manageable enough to use firmer pressure and get even, nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer. The texture was clingy, though, and did pull into my lip lines over the six hours it lasted for. It left a stain behind and was somewhat drying.
