Driven

Propa Beauty Driven Luminous Satin Lipstick ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a darker, plummy brown with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, which was still more coverage than marketed.

The texture felt lightweight, smooth, and lightly emollient with some tackiness present. The tackiness seemed to help the product adhere, while being glossier, and minimized streakiness. It wore nicely for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.12 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "sheer-to-full buildable color coverage" with a "luminous" finish. Most shades had more medium, buildable coverage, though a few shades were more semi-sheer and a few were more semi-opaque (and buildable). They were more pigmented than they were sheer, though. The more emollient quality of the texture made it easier to diffuse with a fingertip for truly sheer coverage if desired.

The consistency was lightweight, thin, and had good adhesion, so a touch clingy (but not in a bad way!) despite having a little more slip and noticeable shine. Most shades applied evenly, didn't settle into my lip lines or emphasize my natural texture, and were comfortable to wear. They lasted between three to five hours and felt lightly hydrating over time. There was a very faint sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Fighter

Propa Beauty Fighter Luminous Satin Lipstick ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage, which was closer to the brand’s description of coverage.

The consistency was smooth, slightly denser but not stiff to work with, and felt lightly tacky once it was on, so while it felt more emollient initially, it did not slide around during wear. The color applied evenly for the most part, but it didn’t adhere to the inner area of my lip as well as other shades. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Empower

Propa Beauty Empower Luminous Satin Lipstick ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation, which made it one of the sheerer shades in the line-up and truer to the brand’s claims of “sheer to full” coverage.

The texture felt smooth, lightly emollient, and a touch tacky, so it glided comfortably over my lips and became more emollient with the warmth of my lips. The color applied fairly evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines, but it didn’t apply as well to the inner area of my lips as other shades. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
