Upon first swipe this isn't super pigmented, but it might just be the protective layer the lipstick has on the exterior. Not much to say about this lipstick, standard orange/coral.
Matte lips are a bit high maintenance unless you religiously exfoliate/moisturize your lips. I used to when I was younger, but I don't really wear lipcolor unless it's for photos. I noticed recently that I mostly reach for moisturizing lipsticks out of convenience.
I purchased Coral Cat because it's a bright color I'll actually reach for.
Would I recommend it?
To be honest I don't think the wearable colors in this line are super unique unless you're into purple, dark burgundy or black lipsticks (personally I'd never wear them). I would've tried the red if I didn't already have staple red lipsticks (Maybelline ColorSensational Matte and 24HR wear, swatches here and here).

I feel like sometimes the lip swatches alone doesn't show the effect of the color on your face, so here ya go. I always like to wear oranges/corals as opposed to pinks because they're bright but not TOO bright compared to red lipsticks. Also it just complements my complexion better
