Rare Beauty Courage Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium, brownish-mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It appeared lighter when applied to my lips--by a noticeable amount--compared to when swatched. I did a bit of a double-take and had to triple-check to make sure something wasn't amiss!
The consistency was very lightweight, smooth, and comfortable to apply (as it remained flexible after application) and spread readily across my lips for good, even coverage in a single layer. The color could be built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. I was most impressed by how flattering the formula sat on my lips as it did not emphasize my lip lines or any natural lip texture, which I have found to be a problem with some of these more velvety-like formulas. The color wore well for five hours and felt non-drying while worn.
