It's supposed to have a "petal-soft matte finish" with "mega rich color" that is long-wearing and will not bleed or feather. They are creamy, smooth, and velvety without being heavy. The majority of shades applied evenly across the lips, never skipped, and didn't get into my lip lines. I do not normally experience feathering/bleeding, and I did not experience either with this range. Most of the shades were very pigmented with true, one-stroke pigmentation, which was particularly impressive for some of the more non-traditional shades in the line-up. They're a soft matte--matte without being flat but not truly glossy or shiny--and have good wear time (four to eight hours, depending on the shade) and were mostly non-drying.
Worth noting is that these are in a slim-style bullet, which means that they don't contain as much as traditional lipsticks do--these contain 0.06 oz. and retail for $18.00, which yields a cost of $300.00/oz. If you're not someone who tends to finish their lipsticks, paying less is often a better "value" than paying more and not using what you paid for. A few comparisons: NARS Audacious Lipstick ($242.86 oz., $34.00/0.14 oz.), Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($173.33/oz., $26.00/0.15 oz.), Pat McGrath Matte/LuxeTrance Lipstick ($271.43/oz., $38.00/0.14 oz.), Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme ($250.00/oz., $30.00/0.12 oz.). Fenty's slimmer tube seems to contain less than the average slim-style tube, too (typically 0.07 oz. to 0.09 oz. but rarely below 0.07 oz.).

If I know that I am going to be out and about all day, THIS is my go-to lipstick. Spanked wears beautifully for hours upon hours. I received a compliment on it saying that it was the perfect color for me, followed up by "How long have you had it on?" When I told her five hours ago, her mouth dropped! She said it looked like I JUST applied it! It is very comfortable to wear, and glides on easily with full opacity in a single stroke. I don't know if others have this problem, but I have had the cap come off in my purse several times now, so I wish it was a little more secure.

Ma'damn is one of my favorite lipsticks I own. This lipstick applies so easily with full coverage and pigmentation in a single stroke. It is comfortable to wear and feels very natural on the lips. The small size of the lipstick works for me as I find it helps with application, making it easier to get into the corners of my mouth. I do think it is a little messy when it comes to cleaning it up if I make a mistake applying it, (I am still new to wearing lip products so maybe this isn't the case for others), and there can be a slight stain left behind.

I really like this lipstick and the colour is nicely in between a mlbb and a bold colour. So it's not light enough to be boring but very easy to slap on for a slightly elevated look. It's not quite pink and not quite mauve and it's lighter than most plum or burgundy colours. It's very creamy and comfortable to wear. It is however not transfer proof. So tea cups, babies and cats will get some lipstick on them. The colour does however fade gracefully and didn't go patchy.

I'll be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first, but I took a chance on this new lip color. When I look at it in the mirror, it looks very weird on me, but when I take photos- it is amazing. I'm a teacher and my students who notice EVERYTHING- noticed my new lip color. I've received many compliments and the most special was from my friend's 10 year old- who said, "that looks really nice on you."
