Tatcha Magnolia Bloom Silk Lipstick ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, reddened plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy that’s a bit denser–a little thicker–but not heavy to wear at all. The color applied smoothly across my lips with even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on well for five and a half hours and felt hydrating over time. I did notice that my lips seemed to look a bit softer and smoother after two to three hours of wear. The only aspect that it didn’t deliver on is that I wouldn’t call it buildable as marketed–it’s definitely very pigmented; to achieve sheerer coverage, you’d have to apply and blot or apply some to the center and use a lip brush or fingertips to diffuse it as a sheer layer. I didn’t notice any scent or taste to the formula.
