Patong Beach (Velvet Lip Liner) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but it is buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The Velvet Lip Liner formula is supposed to be "pigment-rich" while filling and preventing feathering on the lips with "long-wearing, comfortable wear." I find that they tend to be a little dry so they tug on the lips, and while not the most drying lip pencil, it's not comfortable on its own for me. It is clingy and lightly to moderately drying, even though it does last for six hours. MAC Half-Red (P, $17.50) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D OG Lolita (P, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty #032 (P, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
