Before applying, I fell in love with the packaging. The lipstick is housed in a sleek, twistable gold tube, and a thick, transparent case. The shade names appear on a sticker placed on top of the lipstick. The sticker isn’t colored to be the shade of the lipstick inside; instead, it’s a shade of brown. You can see the lipstick inside, so it’s not a huge deal, but I do like it when I’m able to immediately know what color I’m about to use. Thanks to its packaging and colors, it definitely looks like a luxe lipstick.
The application was as seamless as I could have hoped. Unlike other lipsticks I’ve tried, Signature Lip was incredibly smooth to apply and didn’t dry heavily. It felt weightless on my lips, which was beneficial as I needed to build the color.
I was provided three colors to test (Slip, Millennial, and Tiger), and based on quick swatches to my hand, I chose Millennial. At first swipe, the hue wasn’t quite as rich as I would have liked, and I needed to use about four coats to get it to a noticeable pigment. Even after multiple applications, I couldn’t get the color to appear exactly as I wanted. I liked how supple the formula left on my lips; however, if you’re accustomed to a really high-intensity pigment, this is not the product for you. This lipstick is definitely for daily wear and is perfect for those who prefer color on a more subtle scale.
After applying, I put this lipstick to the test. Wearing it for much of the day, I went through my usual drinking and daily living routine. There was some transfer when drinking, as is to be expected, and after a few hours, I could have definitely applied more product. Though the pigment did fade with time, the lipstick remained as weightless as ever. My lips never dried out, and to be honest, I wouldn’t have remembered I was wearing lipstick unless I looked in the mirror and noticed the color.
