They're not drying at all - and I'm really picky about products drying out my lips. I just won't even bother with anything that dries out my lips, because they get chapped easily enough already. And these lipsticks wear fantastically well, despite not being uncomfortable like more long-wearing products. They last for hours. You can snack and have a drink and your face will still look great. They go on opaque in one swipe and aren't patchy (despite the somewhat misleading photo of Divine Wine above). If your lips aren't perfectly smooth, they won't look like shit. This lipstick doesn't exactly camouflage roughness, but it also doesn't highlight it or settle into lines. It has no real scent or taste. I honestly have no complaints about this shit. It's some of the easiest, best lipstick I've ever tried. I'm thinking 2015 might be the year I finally embrace lipstick, though ideally without buying a bunch more of them. Because look: dupes. Well, sort of.

No dupes for Divine Wine! That one is a whole new adventure for me.
