The formula is supposed to have a “luminous satin finish” that wears down to a “soft-bitten lip stain” with eight-hour wear and “24 hour hydration” that yields “intense color.” The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to mostly opaque, but they had slight translucency due to the almost watery consistency.
Iniitally, the liquid lipstick felt thin, somewhat watery, but it developed tackiness as it set on my lips. It was lightweight without feeling clingy, which made it comfortable to wear. They did have a fuchsia-like stain (most apparent on the applicators) that became more apparent after an hour or two of wear, which paired well with the darker, red-hued shades but made the lighter shades look uneven over time (until all of it looked stained).
The shades lasted between five and seven hours but tended to look more similar after four hours of wear. The formula felt moderately hydrating while on.
