This product alone is not long lasting as it melts after a few hours against heat and cold. Pair it with a lipstain, it is a different story. It enhances the durability of the stain, gives it a lovely subtle gloss which is perfect for day time.
this tint is amazingly orange, its like the same color as orange soda or orange jello or candy. however, since it is a stain/tint, if your lips are pigmented it might appear more red but obviously ppl can tell you have orange lips. better and CHEAPER than any orange lipstick in the states. i have the shiseido day lily (orange) lipstick and that one is not nearly as orange, more pinkish even though ppl say its super orange, when compared to this one its nothing (i did buy that on ebay so i dont kno how legit it is). i also have makeupforever aquacream in number 10 which is the orange one for lips and cheeks and that one is amazingly orange with yellow base but quite difficult to work with b/c it dries on the lips and looks horrible unless you have a gloss over it and its 22$ whereas this one i bought on ebay for 6 dollars. i recommend this!! also look at my review on the tangerine soda tint!
