It dries fast, so I can do a coat on each eye, then do another almost immediately. What works best for me: wash face and eyelashes to remove any random buildup. Use the longer bristles on the wand and roll up gently to lightly coat my lashes. One or two swipes of that, then a swipe on the shorter side to build up some colour near the tips. One more swipe of the longest bristles, just a little, to thin out the ends / flare them. Repeat on other eye. For second coat, I use the longest bristles of the wand very gently on the top of my lashes to thicken the look a little and darken the bases of my lashes (light brown lashes here
So this product is thicker than I thought it would be, and almost a little clumpy. For me, if I don't wash my face/rinse my eyelashes before using, it clumps like crazy. Also, the wand is weird to use. It works well once I get a feel for it, but the first few times I used this mascara, I was almost debating tossing it. I really have to ROLL the wand as I apply, blinking slowly to get a nice curve.
I read in a fashion magazine that this was the favorite color for actress Eva Mendes, I liked her look so I gave it a try. It is very pale; however it was a nice change for me, I usually wear pink. Yes I would recommend it. The texture of this lipstick is awesome, I never paid this much for a tube of lipstick; however I ordered it again to carry one in my purse. I love it, it is so smooth.
the lipstick feels great and smooth. I thought the color would have had more rose or pink tone, but it lasts and feels great especially in the winter months as it seems to keep my lips moist without the feeling of a gloss. It is really nice quality lipstick!
I love this line of lipstick, and the formulation of this particular version. Nars is the best for lipstick. What I'm not crazy about is how hard I've found it to select a good shade for me -- I've tried twice and failed both times, had to give those away. I don't know -- I think the shades are not portrayed very accurately online. Wish they were, because I have just about given up trying, and I do love this lipstick.
Super flattering color! I originally received a small sample of this lipstick from Sephora as a gift, and loved it so much I wanted the big format which I couldn't find in stores anymore... Pricey but very nice color and texture
The individual crayons are much larger than I expected, nearly the size of a mascara container. I did the rub test and found that about half the color rubbed off using a Kleenex immediately after applying it to the top of my hand. The remaining color stayed on my hand for a good 4 hours until I removed it while washing my hands. Color looks true to the tip, and the feel is smooth and velvety. I think I will enjoy these items!!
This "lipstick" is my favorite. It is actually more like a tinted gloss. The color in the tube looks like a very deep burgundy but is not quite so dark on the lips. Color is suitable for all skin tone.
Review for: Long Last Lipstick - Bamboo Pink ( Soft Shine ) - 4g/0.14oz more...
This is my new favorite lipstick! I've been wearing it for about 4 months and it goes with everything. It's understated, adds just enough color to brighten up my lips without being an accessory in and of itself. Don't let the dark color fool you when you first open the tube: it's a demi-lipstick and the color on your lips is much lighter. I hope they never stop making this color!
