MUFE's Artist Rouge Mat lipsticks have a creamy formula that doesn't tug on the lips. They don't set on the lips so they aren't transfer resistant, but they feel great on the lips and the formula remains creamy for several hours! They are highly pigmented, but aren't fully opaque.
M201 and M202 lasted 5 hours on me, while the other colors (M203, M204, M300 and M301) began to feel drying by the 5 hours mark but the colors lasted for 6-7 hours.
The light pinks (M201 and M202) didn't look good on me. I love the colors, but they look cakey on my lips and they settle into fine lines. They emphasize the texture of my lips as well. That being said, this problem was a lot less noticeable with the other colors!
If I could only keep 2 shades, it would be M203 and M300!
