KVD Beauty Roxy is a moderately cool-toned, dark purple with a matte finish. It is a permanent lip liner that retails for $18.00 and contains 0.01 oz.
Kat Von D Roxy Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage, but the lip liner was almost as patchy as the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick of the same name (which is very similar in color). The lip liner had a tendency to skip, drag a little, and bunch up (where layering resulted in greater unevenness as the product was thicker in places) as I tried to fill in my lips with the pencil. It was decent for lining the edges, but the lack of opacity made the edges appear pinker and less purple, so I didn't feel like it was giving really crisp, true-to-color edges either. On its own, the lip liner lasted for seven and a half hours--it just did not make it through my first meal at all but held up fine to water and coffee. The formula was a little drying after six hours of wear.

Line, design and define with a lip liner unlike any other!
