Beautiful dark berry color on my pigmented lips. I tend to have dry lips, so I put on some Aquaphor and then a layer of this on top, which ends up with a more lip gloss look than lipstick as that's what I prefer. The color is buildable, so you can put on as much as you want to get the look you desire and it doesn't feel drying. Would definitely repurchase this.

I've been coveting vampy lipsticks and really wanted a shade that wasn't too red or brown. The Rouge Artist Natural line are semi-sheer lipsticks with nice color payoff and a subtle sheen. This one, #50, is named Aubergine but I find that it is more of a brick red burgundy. It's not really a true purply eggplant color so don't be misled by the name. It is a cool-toned lipstick so it makes the teeth look nice and white. It applies somewhat like a MAC luster lipstick, only sheerer.
Personally, if I opt for vampy lips, I prefer matte formulas so I wasn't crazy about the slight glossiness of this lipstick. It can emphasize lines and dry skin flakes. I also do not care for the synthetic floral smell. I am way too used to the great vanilla scent of MAC and for $19, I want a lipstick that smells decent. Would not repurchase this because of cheaper alternatives like Revlon Black Cherry but a lovely colour all the same.
