The texture is slick, slightly tacky, and has a natural sheen but nothing too shiny or glossy (but not totally matte). It feels somewhat thin, and it applies and looks a bit like a lip stain/lipstick hybrid. The color was semi-sheer to semi-opaque. Initially, I was loving the texture, feel, and look of this product, but after wearing it for a few hours, I was less enamored. The major problem with the formula is that it sucked the moisture right out of my lips (which were hydrated and smooth prior to application), and the drier my lips became, the more uneven and flaky the lip color started to look. It managed to last for about five hours, though it became progressively unflattering over the last two hours of wear. The formula is, unfortunately, touted as long-wearing with lots of hydration.

Do you prefer to shop at a brand’s website or a major beauty retailer’s website? Why?
It really just depends on who is going to have the best deal – whether that’s through discount, free shipping, samples, and/or return policy. I usually go to a major beauty retailer, because I’m often buying more than one brand at a time, so it’s easier.
