I just love these sorts of colors as they stand out and go nicely with a dramatic look. Both lipsticks come with one of those doe foot applicators that allow for easy application. I much prefer these ones over those brush applicators that some brands have. The Kylie Jenner lip kits have gotten a really bad name because the hairs on the brush applicator started to split. When you are paying $20 or more for a lipstick you expect the applicator to be great quality.
The pigment in these ones is insane, you don't need to use a lot to get full color on your lips. You could get away with one coat, but I am quite fussy, so I went and applied two coats to my lips.
Drying time is really quick. Once dry, the color was a matte finish and stayed on all day without any need to reapply. My lips do get quite dry and these didn't dry them out once.
Out of the two I don't really have a favorite as they both were amazing.
