Pat McGrath Modern Woman MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was opaque as described, while the consistencyw as smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide on with ease. The color went on evenly and adhered nicely to the lips, but there was a smidgen of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines but wasn't noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on well for almost six hours and was just a touch hydrating.
