She’s Hard to Get
Patrick Ta She’s Hard to Get Matte Suede Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer.
The texture felt velvety, more like a silicone-based primer, as it glided readily across my lips but was thin, lightweight, and didn’t have any of that traditional creaminess (that feels almost wet). There was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though the intensity of the color made it hard to tell in person. It stayed on nicely for over six hours, left a stain behind, and felt non-drying over time.
