To Sum it up:
I love any product that promises to be long-wearing and actually delivers. These lipsticks both have a semi-matte finish, its not over drying on my lips. I do suggest scrubbing your lips and applying lip balm if you find that your lips get too dry, another option is to find a creamy lipliner to use as a base. 

These have been the longest wearing lipsticks I've ever tried. It has a sort of moisturizing benefit that doesn't dry out your lips like matte finish lipsticks do. Shade 12 is more pigmented than Shade 5, it is a bright orange shade which I find toning it down with a neutral tone lipliner works really well. Shade 5 is similar to my natural lip color, this one has been my favorite to wear for the daytime! These don't feather out on their own, they stay put once you apply it.

These do accentuates fine lines but whenever I find that the product starts building up I just press my lips together to smooth it out.  I don't need to touch up my lips for about 5 to 6 hours, it doesn't face evenly. It leaves these patchy fade marks which is why I recommend wearing a lipliner.

I love the scent of these lipsticks. It doesn't have any sort of taste but it has a mild fruity scent which isn't overpowering after you apply it. One aspect that I like about these is that the lipstick bullet is stiff, lately many of my lipsticks have broken because of the weather and these are pretty hard but still apply smoothly on my lips.

I highly recommend checking these out if you hate touching up your make up every couple of hours.
