I believe that the finish of the lipstick depends on the shade. I feel like most of the collection of the one dollar lipsticks are satin finish. Reapplying will be needed after a couple of hours or eating or drinking. But it's a good 1$ lippie
This is in between watery and matte. if you're looking for watery, go with their moisturizing lipstick, if you're looking for matte go with their matte lipstick. I find that this lipstick lasts really long if I pat some translucent powder over it.
