Kat Von D Piaf Studded Kiss LipstickKat Von D Piaf Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "cool chocolate with purple shimmer." It's a deepened red-toned brown with fine violet shimmer. The shimmer is what makes it harder to dupe. It's a chameleon of a color as the undertone seems to shift a lot depending on the natural light; sometimes it looks cooler, sometimes it is warmer, and sometimes it appears very dark and other times more of a true brown. The texture had some slip, and it applied without tugging, though the consistency has some tackiness to it applied. It didn't apply evenly, and it only had semi-opaque coverage. The lipstick lasted for six hours, was lightly drying, and settled into lip lines noticeably after four hours of wear. MAC Chestnut (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).
