KVD Beauty Mercy is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark burgundy with a frost finish. It is a discontinued lipstick that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Kat Von D Mercy Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as "romantic garnet berry." It's a muted, medium-dark plum with soft, warm undertones and violet and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency where I did feel some of the shimmer particles, but it wasn't rough or painful to use. The finish is more of a frosted satin then matte, though it becomes more matte after a few hours of wear. On me, it lasted for seven hours and was a little drying after the fifth hour of wear with a little bit of settling into lip lines, but it is creamy enough that it can be smoothed out by rubbing your lips together for the most part.
