Within an hour or so, the sheen wore down, which revealed a semi-matte finish that eventually became true matte. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

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.
