NARS Somebody to Love Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This did not dry down to a fully matte finish (some shades in the formula do, some seem to take far longer to get to matte, as in hours, not minutes) for awhile. The consistency was lightweight, fluid, and spread evenly and smoothly across my lips with full color coverage in a single layer. The lip color was comfortable and had some stretch after it did its initial dry down (mostly matte, mostly transfer-resistant, but if I pressed my lips together, I could tell it was not fully set--it did not seem to lift up color, though). It lasted well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.
