The Lipcolors feel more like a liquid lipstick and work best on exfoliated lips. You need a bit of prep work for the color to glide. If you have dry lips like mine, be sure to apply a lip balm prior to applying this. The texture feels smooth and very slick. The colors have a creme finish and are very pigmented too. You need just a swipe for the colors to show up and they have a beautiful, subtle glossy sheen. While they are not extremely moisturizing, they do feel comfortable. The shade Confidence especially leaves a beautiful rosy stain after fading. They last a good 3-4 hours on me.

The Lipglosses on the other hand are more sheer, shimmery and have a thinner consistency. They work quite well on dry lips and have a very glossy finish to them. The shimmer does not look very tacky either. They don't last as long as the lipcolors do but, since the colors are a little sheer, I like to layer them over a lipstick. All colors come with a wand that is really convenient and deposits color really well without being patchy.

Overall, a good way to try out a couple of finishes from the Pretty Amazing Lip range. They are not a cure for dry lips or overly moisturizing but, feel very good, texture wise. The colors are not OTT either. 'Confidence' and 'Oomph' especially are very beautiful and will look good on most skin tones.
