I've been trying out these Velvet Lip Glides and I have to say I love them. The color pay-off is great, good pigmentation, very hydrating, and comfortable to wear. Their consistency is that of a lipstick. They are NOT a liquid lipstick where it dries matte. These Lip Glides have a smooth and creamy lipstick like formula which leaves your lips looking plump without settling into the fine lines of your lips. The Velvet Lip Glides have more of a glossy sheen with a matte color. The longer they wear on the lips the gloss fades and the matte comes through even more. I would not say this is a long wearing formula, but it did not say it would be. I think a lot of us have gotten so used to the matte liquid lip's phase that we've forgotten all about our lipsticks in general. I've found my lips are extremely dried out due to using so many matte liquid lips that my lips were so thankful I tried these Velvet Lip Glides out. They were so moisturizing on my lips. I did have to re-apply like you would a normal lipstick, but the pigmentation was there. My two favorites out of the bunch are Bound and Toy. Bound being a dusty deep rose/mauve nude color while Toy is a deep wine burgundy. For me they wore around 3 hours before having to re-apply. If you're eating or drinking obviously you would have to re-apply more often. I would classify these Velvet Lip Glides as more of a highly pigmented gloss vs. a Lipstick. The scent is what I love most about this product because it has that MAC lipsticks type of scent ever so slightly. You can smell a hint of Vanilla so if you are the type of person that does not like scents I still think you should pick these up. The scent is not a strong scent and you only smell it for a brief couple of moments then it's gone. It's not a scent you'll continually smell through-out the day. You will of course smell it when re-applying.
