Buxom Full-Bodied Lipstick in "Menace": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This product was purchased by me.
Hey guys, happy Friday! Today I have another lip product (I know, another one) from the Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip Ultimate Sampler set. The gift set is sold out online but my local Sephora still had plenty of them in stock so I think you can still get them in stores.
The deluxe sample of Buxom Full-Bodied Lipstick in "Menace" that comes with the set ($26 CAD for full-sized) is described as a "rich wine" colored full coverage lipstick with a plumping effect. To see a lip swatch and my review, click......
"Menace" is indeed a very beautiful and vampy shade of red. The pigmentation isn't as opaque as I had hoped, in the swatch above I swiped on the product several times. The formula is quite moisturizing but unfortunately the color went on a tad uneven and settled into the fine lines of the lips. I didn't really notice the plumping effect but my lips aren't very thin to begin with so perhaps the effect is more noticeable for those with thinner lips.
The wear time was also so-so, the color transferred quite easily but I suppose if you don't eat or drink too much this is a good every day lip product.
What do you value more in a lip product? Pigmentation and long wear or comfort and moisturization? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading!
