As the name suggests, these are long lasting lip colours - I think they are somewhere in between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Either way, I like the idea behind them but I am just not blown away by this product and if anything, I have been left feeling disappointed.
|Shade: 15 All Day Cherry|
|Shade: 85 Lasting Lilac|
As you can see from the pictures above, the two shades I purchased were All Day Cherry which is a beautiful vine red and Lasting Lilac which is a vibrant pink with purple undertones. All Day Cherry is definitely my favorite shade out of the entire range because it is such a flattering red for any skin tone - it just looks stunning when worn!
This is a two in one kind of product where on one side, you get a doe foot applicator to apply the colour to your lips and the other side is a moisturizing lip balm. I love how well pigmented both of the colours are when applied and you only need one coat on your lips. The thing that I don't particularly like about this product (and many other long lasting lip products for that matter) is the fact that these are drying on the lips. You can feel when the product has dried on your lips as it just feels stiff - the lip balm helps to an extent but I just don't feel comfortable wearing products like this.
The other thing that is not so great about this product is the fact that after around 30 minutes to 1 hour, as you eat and talk, the product starts flaking from you lips. The flaking not only looks unattractive on your lips but what makes it worse is the fact that the flakes go onto your teeth as well! I think that I could suck it up and put up with dry lips for a night if the product actually stayed in place for longer than an hour, but since it doesn't I can't bare to wear it!
Overall, even though this product sounded promising from the packaging and the beautiful colours available, I have been left disappointed because it is drying on the lips and flakes on the lips after only 30 minutes of wearing! Needless to say, I don't recommend this product. It retails at $21.95 at my local Priceline.
