I think the evenness of the application depends on the color. The more bold the color the more application they need to even it out.
I feel it gets a little dry but only after 6-8 hours of wear. Yeah, it holds that long!
Once it dries it doesn't transfer too bad. It comes off a little on my mug but I think it would transfer with a kiss. He is not willing to risk it though, haha.
Overall I really do love these.
