Pat McGrath Elson 4 LiquiLUST Matte LipstickPat McGrath Elson 4 LiquiLUST Matte Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, deeper red with cool, blue undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied fairly evenly, though as it dried down, it was more prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture.
The consistency was fluid, more substantial without feeling heavy, but I found the applicator tended to over-apply product if I wasn't careful to remove some excess on the edge of the tube when I pulled the applicator out. It wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and felt non-drying.
