Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to have a "plush texture" with "long lasting wear" that has a "semi-matte, creamy" finish and "high pigment." They had a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that was comfortable to apply and to wear, as they weren't prone to dragging, and they seemed to run between satin and semi-matte in finish. A few shades had a little more shine than others but none were truly matte, though they wore down to a more matte finish after two to three hours of wear (at most).

They were not as fully-filled with silicone as some of the other more modern, semi-matte/matte formulas have been in the last few years, but I could definitely feel that signature silicone glide when applying. There was enough slip, though, that they were fairly even and pigmented without catching on lip texture... Read More.

There was enough slip, though, that they were fairly even and pigmented without catching on lip texture imperfections.

The formula had a sweet, fruity smell--same as the brand's lipglosses--but no discernible taste. Most shades wore for at least four hours with some of the richer/deeper hues lasting for six hours or longer. It was a lightly hydrating formula overall.

Keep in mind, the lipsticks are refillable but require you to purchase the refill ($20.00 each) and a case ($12.00) separately. The refills have a slim, translucent plastic cap that fits over the refill unit, which is secure enough for storing at home but likely not fit on snug enough to be kept in a makeup bag (perhaps in a small pocket in a backpack or purse where it won't roll around as much).

Finally—you never have to choose between comfort and a luxe look. The semi-matte, creamy formula hugs lips with a smooth, plush texture and long lasting iconic wear. You’ll reach for these soon-to-be-favorite shades again and again, so Rihanna designed Fenty Icon to be easily refillable with a design you’ll want to show off. So, choose your shade, grab a case, and go be your own damn icon.
