The consistency of these lip lacquers are really thick – maybe somewhat comparable to MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass, but they aren’t at all sticky. Because of the consistency, sometimes adding a lip balm prior can help add a bit of slip to your lips for these lacquers to glide across, as you might find that you’ll need to re-dip your wand a couple of times. Luckily, but you don’t have to apply much for full-on color. They are opaque with one coat.
