Pat McGrath Vendetta MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color payoff was fantastic--incredibly rich coverage in a single layer--and applied smoothly across my lips for an even application. The texture felt lightweight, velvety, and creamy without being too thick. The color wore well for almost eight hours, left a deep pink stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.
