Formula Overview

$30.00/0.08 oz. – $375.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a matte finish with “12-hour” wear with “one swipe, instant color” that is comfortable to wear and “transfer-proof.” I think they’ve improved upon the longevity compared to the brand’s Velvet Matte Lip Pencils of many years ago, as even the lighter shades are long-wearing, but 12-hour wear is a stretch (that’s not a surprise, though).

The formula featured a soft setting process where the initial texture was more emollient, creamier, and easy to maneuver with along the curves of the lips, but it set to a lightly tacky finish that was transfer-resistant and remained flexible, so it was comfortable to wear. Most shades wore between five and six hours with a couple of the deeper hues lasting over six hours. It was a non-drying formula to wear over time.

The shades were pigmented in a single layer, and I felt like they were quite easy to use to get a nice, even line of color along the edges of my lips. It was also a more forgiving and flattering finish as it didn’t emphasize lip lines or lip texture for the most part.
