Pat McGrath Executive Realness MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The color coverage was fantastic--full coverage in a single layer--that applied evenly and smoothly without tugging or dragging on my lips. It had a velvety, lightly creamy texture that was thicker but not heavy or difficult to work with, and the color seemed to smooth out most of my lip lines. This shade lasted for over seven hours on me, left a moderate pinkish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.
