I had no intention of buying these until I saw them at the Makeup Show Los Angeles. The matte side is a richly pigmented satin matte with a texture between a lipstick and chubby lip pencil. The colors are lovely. The highlight side does pick up the lipstick on the first application but still works. It adds a stunning highlight affect.
