Formula Overview

$26.00/0.1 oz. – $260.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “satiny smooth, creamy” feel that is hydrating and has “medium coverage.” The pigmentation was nearly opaque or fully opaque across all shades I trialed, so they were nowhere neear medium coverage.

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and smooth, and they seemed more prone to melting as almost all of mine were weak (angled or partially broken) at the base. I wouldn’t have thought they were THAT prone to breaking based on the texture, though, as they didn’t have high slip when applied to my lips.

The lighter shades lasted three to four hours and were more non-drying than hydrating for me. The mid-tone and deeper shades lasted four to five hours and were similarly more non-drying than hydrating while worn. I’d argue that they were a bit “thicker” despite not really being thick in feel on my lips than the typical bullet-style lipstick.

The formula had a subtle, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
