I have been wearing this product for 7 plus years in bare minimum. Love that the color stays on my lips for hours.
I love the true chocolate color. Really lasts a long time as well.
I love this product!! I bought it in Rum and loved it so much that I bought it in Iris the next day. I still have it on the next morning. I have never found an all day lipstick that last like this one.
At home for the holidays and forgot to bring my makeup with me. My mother has this, and seems to like it. I liked the color, and decided to try it.
I just spent 30 minutes scrubbing it off my lips. And it hurt. Started to look dry and flaky after about 5 minutes. I tried to wipe it off; nothing. Applied more gloss/chapstick and hoped that would make it easier to take off: didn't move. Started scrubbing my lips with alcohol, and all that happened was a few spots had faded, leaving me with patches of flaky clumpy looking areas on my lips. After a bit more scrubbing, soap and alcohol, my poor lips were finally clean and VERY sore.
Worst experience with any lip product ever.
This product just doesn't work for me. I have oily skin, and my lips don't normally crack that easily except in winter. This lipstick definitely creases, flakes and makes my lips really dry and leave disgusting patches of tint on my lips, even after E.L.F. lip exfoliator (to die for), and eucerin lipbalm. I just recently threw this to the garbage. Even my mom doesn't like it.
The first day with this, i loved it. It didnt MOVE. Then i tried to take it off and i thought my lips were going to bleed. I tried soap and make-up remover, and had to scrape it off. I have since figured out that, if you want it off, after the gloss dries, put on a few laywers of chapstick and rub your lips together, keep applying the chapstick and you should be able to wipe it all off. Hurts a lot less.
As for the product itself, i didnt like how cakey it seems once on. Its true, it really lasts, but it just feels weird, kind of sticky and like i have a layer of something on my lips. I purchased ultimate wine, which was red enough when fresh, but not after a while - it developed a rosy punk undertone to it. And it isnt like you could reapply this stuff, it gets too thick. I will use it when i go out, but not every day use.
I love that the color lasts all day. I apply it when I put on the rest of my makeup, after the base and before the eyes. You have to apply enough of it all over and keep your lips open until it dries and sets. Then use makeup remover to take it off at night.
If you have dry lips, you need to address that problem first, as this product is almost pure pigment. I always use clear lip balm at bedtime to keep my lips moist. (It helps that my t-zone is fairly oily.) To add some shine, I either use the gloss that comes with the stick - or Burts Bees tinted lip balm - or sometimes lipstick - and reapply as needed. Even if I forget to reapply the gloss or balm, I still have the tint on my lips.
In the summer when I'm tan, I use Stay Currant, and the rest of the time I use Endless Spice. My skin has a golden undertone.
Love this product, have only tried it in Relentless Raisin. Color looks great for a dramatic, sassy, sexy, different look. Stays on forever no matter what I'm doing (eating, drinking, cigarettes) Kind of hard to take off ( in my experience ) but that doesn't bother me it's called color stay for a reason right!? It's worth the scrub off at the end of the day. Also Drying but thats what happens if you want something to stay on all day. Will buy more of these and experiment with other colors. I love this product hands down!
Variety color selection
Actually stays put if you let it dry correctly
Hard to get off but who cares it's a great lipstain :)
The first thing I noticed was that the color looked nothing like the packaging. I bought Endless Spice hoping for a sienna color, but it turned out light pink on my lips. Within an hour of being at work, someone told me I had lipstick on my teeth. Went to the bathroom mirror, and had to scrape it off several front teeth with my fingernails. After another hour, it became very dry and made my lips pucker up so I applied more gloss. By lunchtime, the color began to clump and I could feel it coming off in small chunks. I returned it to the drugstore. I prefer Maybelline Superstay, I have been using Superstay for years and will stick with it.
The best long-lasting lipstick I have ever tried in my entire life, and I have tried so, so many.
Completely non-drying. I do not even use the gloss just the lipstick.
Stays on my lips for two days -- so satisfying.
Someone here said that it's like nailpolish for your lips -- very accurate description.
And Bare Minimum is a perfect nude. I believe that it can work for all tones -- seems to be a perfect neutral with warm and cool shades.
Of course, knowing Revlon and my luck, it will probably be discontinued it next month.
But for now, I am completely in love.
