I own 2 shades and both colors are highly pigmented! I love the formula, they have a semi-matte finish but the consistency is creamy and it feels great on the lips.
You can wear the lipsticks on their own if you prefer a matte finish, or you can use the highlighter to add a touch of light to the center of lips or on the cupid bow.
To be honest I was afraid that the highlighter would give a super frosty finish, but to my surprise it looks great! I like to apply it with the sponge tip and then blend it with my fingers, it doesn't look too frosty and the plumping effect is noticeable! (as you can see on the photos)
The highlighter has a cream-to-powder consistency so it feels better on the lips than a powder highlighter, it doesn't suck the moisture out of my lips but the formula is definitely less hydrating than a glossy lipstick.
By the way, don't forget to wipe the sponge tip with tissue after each use!
