NARS Mambo Velvet Liner ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had fairly good pigmentation in one stroke, and it was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The texture was moderately creamy but didn't take too long to dry down, so it was easy to apply and didn't require attention after it was applied to fix any migration. This shade wore for seven and a half hours on me. ColourPop Cutest Ever (LE, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Mambo (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar).
