The texture was slightly firmer initially but warmed up quickly, which made it more pliable. It was lightweight, lightly tacky but shiny, and comfortable to wear. It stayed on nicely for five hours, left a soft stain behind, and hydrated while worn.

The formula is supposed to be “super-pigmented,” “hydrating,” and “long-lasting.” There are three finishes: cream, matte, and shine, and the way they feel, apply, and wear does depend on the finish, so I’ve broken the overview down by finish.
The Matte finish is comparable to the original Comfort Matte finish in the Vice Lipstick formula. They have a creamy, smooth consistency with more of a satin finish than an authentic matte finish. They will wear down to a semi-matte to a matte finish as some shine gets worn down. They were typically opaque, fairly forgiving of imperfections on the lips, and wore between four and six hours. A couple of shades, usually on the lighter end of the color spectrum, were more prone to settling into my lip lines.
