Sephora Violet Vertigo (103) is a very cool-toned, medium-dark blue with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $14.00 and contains 0.169 oz.
Sephora Violet Vertigo (103) Cream Lip Stain ($14.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, deep violet purple with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the texture was a little thinner and overly fluid, which made it harder to get and retain even application along the edges of my lips. It dried down quickly but emphasized my lip texture and looked more "shrink-wrapped" compared to other matte shades in the range, which appeared more smoothing. The color stayed on for well over eight hours but was somewhat drying after five hours of wear.
