Pat McGrath Deep Orchid MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, as it didn't seem to apply quite as well along the inner area of my lips (was slightly under full coverage whereas other areas seemed fully covered). The consistency felt lightweight despite having a thicker feel to it, and the lipstick was creamy enough to glide on without tugging but not so much that it felt slippery while worn. It was comfortable to wear over the seven hours it lasted for, and it felt lightly moisturizing while I wore it.
