This is a great metal lip. The formula applies in the dark and light colours without being patchy, and you don’t need that much product for true colour payoff. There isn’t any tackiness, and it didn’t leave my lips feeling dry. All four of the colours are complimentary on my skin tone (and it sounds like that’s the case with other reviewers), so I’m quite impressed. I also like the applicator, and it layers well with balm underneath. However, the compromise for lips that don’t feel dry, is a lack of staying power. If you are looking for this to perform like a true liquid lipstick, this product is not it. I’m wearing Slayer in the photo.
