Just like the name says, this product really is buttery and smooth. The formula and texture feels so nice on the lips. For a matte lip product, I was surprised how smooth it applies and feels lightweight as if I'm not wearing anything.
The shade WICKED is a pretty dark berry color, which is perfect for the Fall season. It also looks great against my medium to tan skin tone. However, it applies streaky and I don't like that, espcially with dark lippies. It applies sheer and I had a a bit of a difficult time building up the intensity I want because it's streaky. I had to apply in small strokes to get more color payoff. I can't speak for other shades, but Wicked is streaky. Also, it is not completely matte. It was more of a semi-matte finish.
Swatch on my arm once
Too bad the product didn't work out for me because the texture is awesome. Maybe the other shades are better. I don't know.
