It felt and looked more like a Comfort Matte than a Cream finish to me It is now listed as a Comfort Matte officially, and it didn't have the weight or the density of a Cream. The texture was very smooth, lightly creamy, and glided over the lips with good color payoff in a single stroke. It lasted for five hours, left behind a fuchsia stain, and was lightly hydrating.
