These bad boys surprised me! They are similar to a few of the other liquid lip colors I own but they are slightly different, lol. They aren't really liquid, they have a consistency that is slightly thick so they'd best be described as lip creams. They come with a doe foot applicator and my favorite thing about them is the way they apply. They have a consistency that gives you a type of control you don't usually get with a lot of other liquid lip colors. They layer on nicely and last longer than your average matte lipsticks.
