The finish is beautiful, shiny like a gloss with tiny iridescent glitters! My photos don't do them any justice, glitters are always so difficult to photograph. I wish you could see how gorgeous the sparkly finish is, you will have to check them out in person!
One thing I really like about them is that I can't feel the glitters on my lips, the formula isn't gritty. They do feel thick and sticky though, so that's something to keep in mind if you usually don't like sticky lip products. I absolutely adore the colors and the sparkly look but I wish they were less tacky.
They last quite a long time for such a glossy formula, and because they are thicker than usual, they are less prone to feather around the lips. All the shades wore well for more than 5-6 hours, except Pyro and Volatile. These two nude shades lasted 3 hours on me.
Va-Va-Voltage and Aftershock are perfect, highly pigmented and gorgeous colors! I love Thunderbolt and Supercharged as well, although I would like to note that these two shades were a bit sheer (compared to the other shades) and can look a bit patchy, but it wasn't noticeable from a normal distance. Pyro and Volatile are less pigmented and sparkly than the other shades, but the colors are super pretty.
Honestly the only shades I didn't like were Flasher and Dynamite, both were streaky and patchy on me. Dynamite wasn't that bad compared to Flasher, but it wasn't smooth like the other shades.
