Kat Von D Slayer Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer and was somewhat buildable to greater coverage, but I would recommend a liner and a lip brush. The texture was drier, firmer, and dense, which made it difficult to apply to the lips as it tugged a lot and did not lay down color evenly. I had issues with getting product to adhere well to the center of my lips (where it can be wetter), which only made the end result worse. It lasted for five hours but was moderately drying within two hours of wearing it and product gathered in my lip lines over time.
