Pat McGrath Wild Orchid LiquiL is a brighter, medium plum with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. The texture was smooth, fluid, and airy without being too runny or too thick, so I was able to maneuver it around the edges of my lips. While it was quick to dry down to a transfer-resistant matte finish that still felt somewhat flexible on my lips, there was some product that dried down into my lip lines. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which stained my lips and lasted for over six hours on me.
Pat McGrath Pink Desire LiquiL is a brighter, deep pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which could be built up to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was smooth, fluid, and easy to work with, but it was prone to streaking along the edges and the color didn’t cover as evenly as other shades. It dried down quickly but separated along my deeper lip lines. It lasted for five hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating on me.
