Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

How nicely and smoothly it glides/swipes on (or not). Its pigmentation level and/or any tendency towards patchiness/splotchiness, by this I mean that if it’s meant to be sheer or semi-sheer, does it build up nicely on itself without bunching up? And, for mattes, creams and satins, I do desire full, even opacity.
How well it lasts, as in, not only how many hours can it go before I need to touch it up, but also whether it wears off evenly or whether it leaves the dreaded “butt-hole” effect!
And of equal importance: how COMFORTABLE it is during wear time.

How easy is to apply and get a precise lip contour (I hate lipsticks that don’t allow you to get a precise application, especially at the corners), if they are too slippery or too shiny, how well it covers my natural mauvy lip color.

When trying out a new lipstick – some of the things I notice first are:
Is it creamy and does it glide onto the lips?
Does it have a satin or glossy finish? – absolutely no matte finish!
How long does it last on my lips?
Does it have a scent? – Loathe scented lipsticks
Is it moisturising?

I tend to notice how well it blends in to my actual lips. I don’t know if it’s a texture issue, because I have some heavy lipsticks that blend in just fine, and lighter gloss types that don’t. I don’t like lipsticks that have an odd cast or look like they’re just “sitting there” on my lips. After that, I notice wear time and comfort. Lastly — and this is critical — I notice whether or not I wind up with dry, peeling lips after wear. I do have allergies and sometimes this is the first sign that I’m allergic to something in the lipstick.
