I really do like these. The one and only complaint I have is that it dries out my lips, and I cannot wear them if I haven't exfoliated my lips first or else it looks awful. Other than that, I love the texture, the color, the smell, and the fact that once it dries it doesn't really transfer (it does, however, fade if you're eating or something.) It's fairly pigmented, at least the color I have is. Overall, a good product, and very different from any other lip products I have.
I first learned about these products by watching all the bloggers on you tube. I first bought this one and another. I like how long the stay on the lip and I also like how matte they are becuase if I want it to be daytime glam I can add a gloss on top but i usually like aq matte lip. I do think they do dry the lips but just use an EOS egg before applying
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
The colors are wonderful but the best part is how long they stay on!
They do have a tendency of drying the lips but all you have to do to avoid that is add A LITTLE Chapstick on before applying.
I didn't believe the description when it said it leaves a matte finish bc it looks just like a lip gloss. They were only $6 at Nordstrom Rack so I bought 2 along with Stockholm.
Perfect red tone for olive/tan skin tone
Color doesn't rub off on other things (I ran my lip balm over this and expected the redness to be on it, but surprisingly wasn't) so yay
Dries out your lips after a while so make sure they're really moisturized before applying
These are my new lip obsession. I love a good matte lip and these are perfect. Super pigmented with great bright colors that go on rich and smooth.
A couple of tips: Before applying let a coat of lip balm sink in to lips. Then apply a clear lip liner all over lips. This prevents the product from 'cracking'.
I recently bought this while in Ulta and absolutely loved the color! I love the way it looks on my lips, I like how matte it is. I got loads of compliments on it throughout the school day (which is always a plus). The only problem I have with it is that it tends to seep into the cracks.. But besides that, I absolutely am in love with it!
Got this today and I'm way too in love with this one. Bet the sales lady offered me this one because I had red lipstick on mine... which sadly was drying my lips, and I'm pretty sure I made a good decision for taking it! This baby is amazing, it lasts for hours and hours... and surprisingly, it feels like it's working great on moisturizing my lips. This is one of my best investment, totally.
It's a good product :O
It's really good. I have two of the darker shades and they last a very long time. They can be a bit drying, but you can always put lipgloss on or something :U I used to have "Tokyo" but I didn't really like it that much. For some reason the light colors don't work as well as the darker ones. They dont last as long and they can be streaky. If you're gonna buy this product, get the darker colors ;o
Very pigmented but really drying on the lips.
I love this color so much! Istanbul is a blue based pink. It is very pigmented and applies smoothly on the lips. The only downside of this product for me is that it is very drying on the lips. The color payoff is awesome but the lasting power is quite short. After a few hours of application, it seeps into the cracks and lines of the lips and if you already have dry lips, it will make the flakes more visible. I gave this a rating of average because of the formulation.
