The formula is supposed to have "one-stroke colour" with "ultra-reflective pearls" paired with a "silky" and "creamy" texture that yields "multi-dimensional shine." The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with more medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that "full coverage," and the amount of shimmer/glitter also varied significantly from to shade. For example, Blitz Trance has a very glittery look on the lips, whereas Flesh Fatale had a subtle, sparkling finish. They had a lot of shine, though, with being wet in feel or all that glossy, which seemed to linger for longer than the average lipstick--the shine didn't immediately dull after taking a sip of something or talking for a few minutes.
The consistency was lightly creamy with moderate slip, but it didn't feel too thick or heavy, so the color didn't slide around on my lips and adhered evenly for the most part. Shades that were more glittery felt that way in the tube as I applied them to my lips with the glitter being less noticeable on my lips, though those who may be more sensitive to glitter may find it at least somewhat apparent--at the very least, this formulation is not disguising the texture of all that sparkly goodness. They were lightly to moderately hydrating, comfortable to wear, and lasted between three and five hours. I feel like the best way to sum these up as: they're sparkling and luminous with medium, buildable color payoff that lasts an average length of time. They did not have any scent or taste from what I could tell!
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
The new lip counterculture has arrived, and it stars the glittering, rave-worthy shine of BlitzTrance. This shockingly iridescent lipstick amplifies lips with the hi-fi, crystal flash glow of ultra-reflective pearls suspended in the silky texture of a creamy, emollient-infused formula. With exquisite control, the electric formulation melts smoothly onto the lips, drenching them in star-like pigments infused with a lustrous glitter for the ultimate in multi-dimensional shine. Explosive one-stroke colour shocks and seduces in shades that range from illicit violet and blue pearlized neon pink, to fiery copper and magnetic bronzed rose. Prepare to transport your lips into unexplored dimensions destined to slay all-night strong.
