Dose of Colors A Mauve Story Desi x Katy Velvet Liquid Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for oz.) is a medium, dusty pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and spread easily across my lips. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and fluid with an oilier feel (felt more slippery than if it was creamy), but then it dried down to a satin to semi-matte finish that no longer felt creamy/oily and did not slide or move around. It wasn't transfer-proof and would come off blotted on a napkin but was more resistant to transferring on cups and glasses. The color did separate at my deeper lip lines slightly, though it wasn't enough to be noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It lasted well for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.
