Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a "fawn nude." It's a muted, medium-dark beige-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. It was soft when dried, and it didn't "crack" or look split down the lip lines after it dried down. The drying time was a little faster than many other shades I've tried from the formula. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me with little breakdown but was slightly drying after the fifth hour of wear. MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Stone (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler.
