KVD Beauty Vampira is a slightly warm-toned, dark burgundy with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Kat Von D Vampira Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep burgundy with cool, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It appeared on a lot lighter than it did in the tube, which may have been in due in part to it being only semi-opaque in pigmentation ("unbelievably pigmented" -- not even close). The stiff, denser consistency had a tendency to collect on itself, which resulted in patchy application and crumbles of color that slid into my lip lines over time. The lipstick lasted well for seven hours but was somewhat drying over time, and the color further settled into my lip lines over time.
