  • "Lovelovelove! I applied it after exfoliating and moisturizing my lips. I applied 2 coats, letting it completely dry between coats. It has a doe foot applicator and the product is thinner than other liquid lipsticks. Very slight scent that isn't offending and goes away once dry. I found that of the 4 colours I purchased, this one lasted the longest on my lips. Not saying that it's a long lasting product on me as I did have to reapply after 4hrs, but if you drink through a straw and eat foods that are not greasy and don't have to bite into it'll last you a pretty decent amount of time." in 22 reviews

This shade is so pretty and the product was very easy to apply. I first lined my lips with it then filled the rest. I love the color on me and of course as I'm eating lunch and drinks Pepsi from the can I have no transfer. Very happy with my last minute buy. Purchased this thru Ulta.com because I was a dollar away from free shipping and I am happy I did 😝💖

Review for: Fresh, Heartbreaker, Nightrunner more...
I am a huge fan of Nyx lip products-they are stay put, come in a variety of colors, and are inexpensive. I had super high hopes for this product, and unfortunately was let down. I bought a 3 different shades, and NONE of them were the color that I was expecting. I think because of the “ink” nature of the product, you see what 100,000,000 layers of the product look like in the tube, but don’t have a way to accurately judge what one layer will look like on your lips. I think that other brands have appropriately found other ways to advertise the color of the stain; through colored caps, stickers, etc., and that would have been appreciated. If you don’t mind playing color roulette, these stay on FOREVER and don’t budge. I would have rated it higher except the darker colors are hard to apply evenly and without streaking because the product dries so quickly. The difficult application and packaging issue makes this a miss for me.

Review for: Wizardry more...
This is a great lip product! The only reason I️ gave it four stars instead of five is because the longevity of the product isn’t the greatest. If you love wearing lip stains/dyes as opposed to lipsticks then this is for you! I️ love this because it stains my lips, is super pigmented, goes on opaque after two coats, and you can’t feel it on your lips! It also does not dry your lips out. It stays on at full opacity and pigment for probably three to four hours which is great for a lip stain but not great for an overall lip product. However, during the first 3-4 hours you have it on, it lasts through eating and drinking and talking a lot. And it also wears off the lip evenly so when you have to reapply it isn’t patchy or uneven. Like I️ said the only downside is longevity which means you have to reapply like two or three times to get a full day’s wear.

This was a mess. If it had layered well or applied evenly it would have been great. However, it applied super pigmented in some areas and splotchy and thin for the rest. It looked like a water painting instead of a lip stain. I tried reapplying it in multiple ways and consulted the internet and the NYX website to make sure I was applying it correctly. Every time I put it on I looked crazy so I returned it.

Review for: Heartbreaker more...
It definitely is a lip stain. It will stain anything it gets on! I really like the color but the product itself is very runny. You have to be extra careful while putting it on and if you make a mistake, you are stuck with it until you wash your face. Even then, it might not all come off. I really do like NYX products, this just wasn’t the right one for me.

This dye is OKAY but doesn't last like it should. It grips onto parts of my lips really well but then completely comes off on other areas. It looks really nice when it's fresh, but since you don't really feel it at all on your lips, you don't even realize how uneven it looks. How embarrassing!

Review for: Fresh, Blazed more...
I’m a sucker for reds and these were amazing! I love how with more layers you can darken the colors, definitely would recommend but it is kind of hard to apply. Had a lot of trouble the first couple times and if you don’t have a steady hand I wouldn’t recommend this.

Review for: Slay more...
If i could give these 6 stars i would! i bought this product based on my love of NYX products and it did not dissapoint! It glides on wonderfully and leaves beautiful pigment! When it dries it literally feels like just my bare lips! No drying, no cracking, just pigment on leaving my lips feel bare, but looking glam! It lasts a great amount of time - near the middle of my lips it tends to wear a little faster but that's likely from my eating and drinking throughout the day! Love love love these, once i'm able to i'll likely be buying them all!

I like this product a lot, it’s very buildable and can be very pigmented. It’s very watery but workable. It has a good color and can almost look pretty natural. I would recommend this to experienced people who know how to work with different consistencies.

I love the color pay off on these and how long they stay put without bleeding or transferring!! They are slightly drying, but not more so then your average matte lipstick and that can be helped by priming the lip with a moisturizer of sorts first.

Are these drying? Long lasting? Flaky?

I've been wanting to try this for some time. Does it last as long as the advertisements claim? Is the color true to pictures?

Hi, just curious about exactly how much coverage and the feel of this lip dye is like? Is it drying on the lips?
