Kat Von D Requiem Everlasting Liquid LipstickKat Von D Requiem Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a "soft lilac." It's a softened, light-medium pinky lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation (there's a very faint shadow of my lip freckle peeking through). The drying time on this shade was more in line with the rest of the range, so you'll want to avoid pressing your lips together for about two minutes or so to maintain your smooth application. This shade lasted for seven hours on me with some fading becoming visible after five hours, and it was a little drying after six hours. MAC Dress it Up (P, $18.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Snob (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Lavender Whip (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, glossier. MAC Snob (P, $16.00) is darker. Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler, lower quality.
