The formula is described as having the glide "like a gloss" with a "soft-focus matte" finish that will "nurture your lips like a cream" while having "full coverage." The texture of the formula was mousse-like without a lot of slip or wetness; it definitely felt more velvety and smooth with an airy quality to its "thickness." The color spread comfortably across the lips and typically yielded semi-opaque to opaque coverage that went on evenly but sometimes settled into my lip lines.
I did not find them to be particularly long-wearing--more like a standard bullet lipstick than a more traditional liquid lipstick, which was likely due to the fact that these never fully set or dried down on me. They had a semi-matte to satin finish that wore down to a matte finish (after two to three hours). The wear ranged from three to five hours on me and was fairly comfortable, though I would not describe the formula as hydrating.
The applicator is supposed to be like a stiletto heel, and it had a very steep angle that I did not find hugged my lips as well as the brand seemed to design it to--there are a lot of other doe-foot-like applicators that are more curved now to hug the lips that have been easier to use. The steepness of Charlotte Tilbury's applicator is what made it harder to apply for me, and I ended up using the other side for a lot of my upper lip.
The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent that was slightly noticeable on the lips but no discernible taste.

Charlotte Tilbury unveils yet another of her red-carpet secrets with Hollywood Lips – allowing everyone to cheat their way to a fuller, plumper-looking pout. Designed to glide on like a gloss, these matte contouring lipsticks dress lips in full-coverage, long-lasting colour and, what’s more, feel as light as air on wear. The addition of collagen-stimulating sea lavender prevents thinning while nourishing beeswax ensures a baby-soft finish.

What a massive disappointment from Charlotte Tilbury. The formula is incredibly uncomfortable and sucked the moisture out of my lips. The finish accentuates every little lip line you have (my mouth looked like a prune). Don't pay any attention to the photos of models wearing each lipstick on the official Charlotte Tilbury website. They are drastically different in real life and inaccurately described (Show Girl is a dark '90s brown with no rosiness in it). There is no strong scent which is a plus. However the applicator is poorly designed and was incredibly messy and imprecise. The lipstick dries down within 10 minutes and starts becoming uncomfortable at the 45 minute mark. Packaging is not a clear tube by the way. Most of the tube is opaque and is garishly emblazoned with 'Hollywood Lips' and an accompanying lipstick kiss in a particularly loud shade of red. It looks cheap. Charlotte Tilbury has great lipsticks (the tube formulas) but her liquid lipstick was a huge dud for me.
