Pat McGrath Soft Core MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color coverage was opaque in one stroke, while the texture felt velvety and smooth with nice glide. It sat fairly well on my lips, particularly given that it was a creamier, denser formula (but felt rather lightweight), but there was a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines. The color lasted well for six and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.,
