Kat Von D Mother Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The consistency had more give than most shades in the range, so while it was denser and firmer than most lipsticks on the market presently, it tugged just a bit when I attempted to apply it in a single stroke. It had excellent pigmentation that applied evenly and stayed on nicely for seven hours, though it felt a bit drying after five hours of wear.
