NARS Wild Night Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a deep purple with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. I waited 20 minutes for this to fully dry down before taking a photo, and there was still a slight sheen to it. It had good pigmentation, though it was shy of full coverage, that covered the lips with even color overall. There was room for improvement with respect to the application, but for this type of color, it was impressive nonetheless. The texture was lightweight, thin but not watery, and spread easily over my lips. It wore well for six and a half hours and was non-drying but absolutely transferred while eating/drinking.
