NARS Flame Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a bright, neon pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. There was more of a soft sheen to this one that was present for over a half hour, though it eventually wore down to a matte finish. It had a very thin, fluid consistency that was almost watery based on how easily it spread, but it managed to apply with nearly opaque color coverage and did not appear streaky or uneven overall. There was slight product in my deeper lip lines, though it didn't seem to be as noticeable due to the brightness in the color itself. It stayed on well for seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
