Pat McGrath Amour MatteTrance Lipstick ($40.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral that leaned slightly pink paired with a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had more slip and creaminess to it than most MatteTrance shades, and it felt that way, too, which resulted in a less-than-ideal application.
There was visible product that separated along my lip lines and a touch of streaking. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, while the color itself stayed on well for six and a half hours (but had a bit of additional settling over time) and felt non-drying. I'd recommend blotting gently, which helped to reduce some slip and improved the evenness/settling of color.
