Kat Von D Adora Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, ruby red with a metallic sheen and subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with two to three passes. The texture had a touch of slip but was still best applied in shorter strokes to avoid unnecessary tugging during application. The color applied evenly on my lips with some color gathering in my lip lines, though the glossier finish helped distract from that. On me, it wore well for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.
