The Comfort Matte finish doesn't tug on the lips, it's a creamy formula with a semi-matte finish. In comparison to MAC Matte lipsticks, the finish is a bit less matte and the formula is less drying. Menace and Disturbed lasted 7 hours and didn't feather on me, while Backtalk lasted 4-5 hours.
The Mega Matte finish is a bit more matte than the Comfort Matte finish, but it's less matte than a liquid lipstick. I would say it's an happy medium between a MAC Retro Matte and a MAC Matte lipstick! The formula doesn't tug on the skin like the Retro Matte lipsticks, but it's more matte than the Matte lipsticks. 714 wore well for 8 hours on me and didn't feather at all. Pandemonium lasted 7 hours on me but it was a bit patchy. Both shades feel a bit drying as the day progresses, so you may want to apply them over a moisturizing lip primer (such as MAC Prep + Prime Lip).
The Cream finish is creamy (obviously lol) and has a semi-glossy finish. The formula is very comfortable on the lips! Rock Steady wore for 6 hours, but I noticed a bit of feathering by the 2 hours mark so you will need a lip pencil with this one. Firebird lasted 6 hours on me, and Naked wore well for 3 hours.
The color payoff was great for all shades!
Menace is a bright fuchsia pink with a semi-matte finish. I love this pink, so pretty!
