Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Decisive Poppy ($34 CAD for 3.5g)
Decisive Poppy is a gorgeous red with a semi-matte finish! It has an intense color payoff and is completely opaque. I wouldn't say it's an ultra-creamy formula, but it's definitely more creamy and easier to apply than MAC's Retro Matte lipsticks. Oh by the way, this shade is similar to MAC RiRi Woo (which was a limited edition) but the undertones are a tad more warm toned and the finish is a bit more creamy.
The finish is semi-matte but it doesn't make my lips look dry and wrinkly. It has excellent staying power as well (it wore for more than 7 hours on me) and I like the vanilla smell. It's an amazing formula!
Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in Fierce Beauty ($34 CAD for 7ml)
Fierce Beauty is a warm pink with terracotta undertones. This shade is highly pigmented and almost completely opaque, they didn't lie when they said this lipstick is saturated with high-intensity color! It applies like a liquid lipstick, but it doesn't dry down to a super matte finish. It still feels creamy, although a bit thicker after a few minutes, and the finish is creamy (not glossy but not completely matte either). The texture feels amazing on the lips, it doesn't feel sticky, thick or oily!
Unfortunately the staying power wasn't that great. It lasts for 2.5 hours on me and then it starts to look dry on my lips and the color is less intense. However, light colors usually begins to wear off more quickly than dark shades so maybe it's just this one?
