NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a "matte, hot pink hue saturates lips with rich, bold color." It has a slight sheen to it--I wouldn't say it's completely matte--and really rich, vibrant fuchsia pink with blue undertones. The color coverage is excellent, and it really takes no more than a pass and a half or so to get even, full color coverage.
