Ciate Iconic is a moderately cool-toned, very dark black with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Ciate Iconic Glitter Flip ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep black with cooler, purple sparkle and shimmer. It was quite pigmented in a single layer, but it was so, so unforgiving when I pressed my lips together (after waiting two minutes for it to dry), as the color just lifted up so much--it went from opaque to sheer in places and looked very patchy! I tried again, waiting five minutes, and it was somewhat better, but for me, I could never get it to be opaque after pressing my lips together. The best luck I had was applying less and having semi-opaque coverage, and that seemed to help it dry down better and more thoroughly, but it was still patchy as a result (due to the lack of opacity).
The texture was very fluid, too easy to spread across the lips, and it had a tendency to pool along the edges. It lasted for four hours but faded away unevenly and chunks of black were constantly coming off and sitting on my teeth. The formula was slightly drying as well.
