These were received free for reviewing purposes. I loved the colors, and they were matte, but they did not feel good on my lips. At points it felt dried out and would flake. I think longwear lipsticks should have a balm or gloss with them to prevent an icky feeling.
These lipsticks have a great color selection, but they can become a little dry and flaky. I would suggest using a lip balm before applying this lipstick, or use a gloss after. It's not bad for the price though!
