The formula is supposed to apply like a gloss but dry to “an ultra-matte, opaque finish” that is “never dry, shriveled, or cracked” that should “last for hours.” In my experience, the formula is hit or miss–some shades apply well and look decent after dry down while others flaked or “cracked” as soon as I moved my lips. This one was more forgiving with mostly opaque color coverage that dried down fairly evenly. The texture was matte after a few minutes, but it didn’t fully dry down for about a half hour–if I pressed my lips together, there was a slight tackiness but no color lifted off, thankfully. It was moderately drying after six hours of wear, though the color lasted closer to eight hours overall.

By now, we all know I got a weakness for this particular shade of bright fuchsia-red! 2 tubes of UD Catfight, MAC La Vie End Rouge and CP Brooklyn say it all.
But this is just stunning for this formula, though! It doesn’t *look* dry at all, or uneven either.

Very pretty! Cutesy packaging is tempting me. I found myself going nuts trying to line my lips night. Guess I’ve been in a nude rut. Yes a liner is a must for me. Anybody know of tips or any particular videos on YouTube?

What a pretty colour!
I’m not going to buy it as I’m getting more and more problem with matte lipsticks, I need a lot of recovery time after using one. Sticking with glossier finishes for now. I think it’s probably the season, it’s getting colder and it’s windy two factors that really dry my lips, and hands.

Hey there Christine, I was wondering how close this shade is to Too Faced “It’s Happening”? I own that liquid lip already, but am tempted by this one as well.
