i just recently bought this and tested it out. It really is long lasting but when you first apply it, it feels very sticky and kind of dry but with the balm that it comes with it really changes the texture of your lips and gives it a glossy feel and touch. Overall this product is great because you would'nt have to worry about re-applying the colour all you would need to apply is the balm.
I've never been a lip stain person, but when I saw this I just had to try it. After applying it once in the morning, I didn't have to touch it up even once! It lasted the whole day and well into the night without bleeding or flaking off. It's my go to for a punch of berry color that will last all day!
A must have only for some special occasions
I have it for a few month now and I have to tell that it's a must have but only for some occasions. The product is what they sell: a superstay. Your lips must be clean for the color to stay well so not moisturize them previously! When it dry it really DRY your lips. I mean carton dry. You need to apply the other part of the lipstick to get a soft and moist feeling and look.
I don't recommend this product for an everyday use because It seems to be very aggressive with the lip skin. After I use it I need to remove it with a hard makeup remover and exfoliate otherwise it leave some residual product and very dry lips.
It's perfect for those occasions like parties when you need to be perfect all the time and you can't retouch your make up very much.
True to it's word
This seriously lasts for long! I wore it at around 6pm and it lasted all night and all of the next day too! So it's a definite 24 hour lip colour. The lip colour itself will be drying if you already have dry lips, so i would recommend dry exfoliating your lips, but DON'T put anything moisturising on your lips! Not even the balm supplied with this lip colour! The second your lips have a greasy moisturiser on them, the lip colour fails to stick to your lips and fades extremely quickly. I would recommend using the balm provided as a lip balm separately on a day where you are not wearing this colour, and just using the lip colour by itself. I even recommended this to my friend and she got hooked on it! It is a stain so make sure to blend it into your lips with your fingers quickly, before it dries.
I decided to test this out a night I was going out with my girlfriends.
All you do is apply the color, wait for about, oh id say 30 seconds (if you wait to long it dries and cracks) it'll still feel slightly sticky and then put the chapstick over it. DONE!
This stuff is awesome! It lasted ALL night! I drank with it and ate with it and the only thing I had to reapply was the chapstick/lipgloss thing it came with. Ill be buying another one of these for sure
OMG 24hours and Beyond!
I love love this product, I was a little nervous about trying it after a bad run in with lip stains. However I read a lot of reviews and that gave me the push to try it. The color does last really long. Essentially until you take it off. You apply the color first which can feel like its drying the moisture out of your lips but once you apply the balm its very soothing. I like that the balm is retractable verses the Just Bitten Lip stain that has a non retractable balm... which leads to breakage. This is a great product and I definitely recommend it.
thats the color i have, and i do love this lipstain, it was the first lip stain i bought to try it out and i love it, it does last a long time, but you eventually have to reaply. it works best when you put two coats of the color, and let it sit for 1 minute to obtain its best results, i am considering on buying more shades.
truly long lasting
I bought this during the CVS sale because I've been wanting to give these long lasting lipsticks a try, but I think they're a bit overpriced. This was actually pretty awesome. When you first apply it, it feels very sticky and uncomfortable, and you kind of have to keep your lips open so it dries properly. After it dries, your lips will feel very tight. You can definitely feel it sealing on to your lips. The balm it comes with is great, because without it this stuff would be SO drying. It's also a good way to prove that the lipstick really doesn't come off! It lasted for about 6-7 hours before I had to touch it up. It fades a bit on the inner part of the lips and at the corners, but you could honestly go the whole day without touching up and still look ok.
