The formula is supposed to be "rich" and "creamy" with "indulgent color" paired with a "metallic-frost finish" that lasts for "10 hours." The longevity claims it the part that kills the product's rating; even if it was fantastic across the board, the formula lasts between four and five hours--nowhere close to 10! The pigmentation varied from shade to shade but most had semi-opaque or better coverage. The finish was most definitely "metallic-frost," so sometimes the finish was more likely to emphasize my lip lines or any imperfections in texture, though most looked just fine from a normal viewing distance. A few shades applied well enough but a few were less even, while the formula was smooth and comfortable to apply and to wear. There's a subtle, vanilla scent but no discernible taste (though the description indicated it was a scent and taste).
