Lasts through anything kind of lips
You'll need a fine, synthetic brush to apply OCC lip tars. They really last through your day and rarely need applying even after a meal/drink. As a MUA, I love these little tubes because they were easy to carry in a kit (not bulky) and no need to worry about cross contaminating product for clients. The shades are opaque and I found I didn't need a lip liner if I used a precision tipped brush. Of course, that is up to you. I would use a good lip balm or primer underneath to moisturize the lips as you won't be applying lip balm on while this is on! I I find that it dries to semi-matte finish and is definitely more in lines of a lipstick rather than a gloss.
