It was intensely pigmented with a medium-thick, velvety consistency that was lightly creamy and didn’t drag on the lips during application. The color went on evenly with opaque coverage that lasted for six and a half hours. It left a stain behind, and it was slightly drying after four hours of wear. Even though it’s listed as a Matte finish, it has a noticeable sheen to it that gives it more of a satin-like finish when I tried it, though of course, it mattifies over time as the shine wears away.
