It does last 9 – 5 that’s if you don’t eat anything oily. If you do, then you might have to touch up a bit. When you apply the matte lipstick it takes about 2 min to dry and once it does you get the desired matte look. And what’s even better is the fragrance. One of the popular one- Coffee Lite, is a nude shade and yes, does have a bit of that coffee aroma to it.
