Formula Overview

$15.00/0.15 oz. – $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable, and high-impact matte coverage” that is long-wearing. It had a thin, watery consistency (it is “water-based”, so that came as no surprise) that spread more readily than I expected, which was nice as it made it easier to get an even layer of product.

The coverage seemed more along the higher end of medium to semi-opaque, though it was certainly buildable and amenable to a second layer, if desired. The product dried down to a mostly matte finish within 30 seconds, and it seemed to dry down without settling into my lip lines for the most part.

Despite being thin/watery, the dry down didn’t feel clingy and vwas incredibly lightweight and a lip product. Most shades lasted at least four hours on me with a few lasting as long as six hours, while the formula felt non-drying over time. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
