The Lip Metal formula is supposed to be "pigment-packed" with a "foil-like" finish that has "comfortable to wear" that is designed to be long-wearing. It has more of a setting period than a true dry down; it has more of a thicker, smooth gloss-like feel as it sets down to a thin, very tacky texture. After waiting 30 minutes for it to dry down or set on me, I tried pressing my lips together to test, and I could feel my lips slowly peel away from each other as it was painfully tacky, and then it revealed a less glossy finish each time I pressed my lips together and pulled them apart. The color lifted along the center of my mouth, so it's the type of product that is high-maintenance as I could not press my lips together during wear without ruining the application. If I did not press my lips down, it was still partially glossy after an hour of wear. The lasting time varied wildly based on what I did--whether I ate or drank or talked--the more talking, the worse the wear, as my lips seemed to press together more often. Just going about my normal routine, they lasted between five and seven hours on me and were non-drying.
