The king of liquid lipstick, really long lasting . I wear this lipstick without any problem and any color loosing up to 8 hours , can I drink eat talk even kiss and the color stay up and perfect, depend of the color some person says , so far I tried 4 of them and all have the same results , PERFECT. Good price absolutely worth the product, dry Matte no transfer at all I recommend to wear before an hydrating primer for lip , will be more easy also to remove it in the end of the day !

I love this colour on me! It is not too brown and not too orange! Perfect autumn color for my medium/ light tan skin. The lipstick is long lasting but can be a little drying. I make sure my lips are welll hydrated before putting this on or it will look extreemly flakey. Also, if your body is not hydrated well enough, this lipstick will make your lips a bit chapped the next day. I do still like this lipstick enough to wear it all the time since the color is so pretty and application is a dream.

I have this liquid lipstick in six colors and I love them all! The formula works very well with my lips; it goes on smoothly and doesn't cake up or peel off. It's not drying and the best part is I can put it on in the morning and it last all day even through eating and drinking and I don't to reapply or touch up throughout the day. I am definitely going to be adding more colors to my collection.

Review for: Topped With Brandy more...
I LOVE this product. I get so many compliments on it. It goes on super smooth, and I like to layer different colors (other brands) on top to give it a more velvety finish. Beware, this will definitely dry out your lips. I also noticed it can get a little smudgy when you eat so would recommend a lip primer or lip liner to help with that. I'm ready to buy another color!

This product is amazing! I have been putting off getting this product for a while but I finally got the urge to get it and it is truly incredible! it has a soft matte finish on your lips and like most lip products need to reapply after eating but it stays on and does NoT get on your teeth😬 My favorite shades are Back in Vogue [shade in photo] and Burnt Spice

Review for: Dance With Me more...
I cheer for an NHL team and am on camera a lot. I was searching high and low for a bright red but also a deep red matte lipstick that I could wear at the games. This was finally the answer to my prayers. With two coats, before the game, I can apply it and not have to reapply countless times. It is long lasting and stays on very well. It lasts for hours and doesn't get pilly or clumpy. I love how vibrant this color is.

Review for: Young Attitude more...
I definitely love the color and I love that you only need one coat. It goes on easy. My only problem with this is the price is kinda expensive and it comes off too easy. It will stay on for a while just as long as nothing greasy touch your lips and you can’t put a gloss on top without this breaking down and start coming off. The cheaper drugstore long wear lipstick dries and I can add a gloss later without it breaking down.

Review for: Young Attitude more...
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COLOR!!!! Very pigmented, barely needed two coats for full coverage. Goes on like a dream, dries down to where you don’t even feel it on your lips. Very long wearing, the smell isn’t overbearing like some liquid lipsticks. One of my favorite liquid lip formulas. Applicator is flat and pointed to you can get in tight spots without needing a lipliner. Definitely going to be buying more!

Review for: Carnivorous, High Drama more...
I love this product! The colors are vibrant and pigmented and they dry down completely but are still smooth and don’t feel drying on the lips. Unlike another popular brand of liquid lipsticks, you can add layers to this product to achieve the color you want and they don’t get goopy or smudge. My only wish for this product is that it was more transfer proof and dried down quicker.
