Ringleader is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, so it was a bit more pigmented than described but might not be a deal-breaker for everyone. The texture felt thin and watery, though it dried down quickly once I spread it out. The product went on fairly evenly, but there were areas of light patchiness and streaking along the edges. There was also slight product that sank into my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
