I have the perpetual peony in this... I wanted to buy a matte lipstick I thought of the chubby stick collection but couldnt find the right color and then my sister told me check out this n oh im so happy the shade is exactly like I wanted and its perfect for day wear and even for night out you apply gloss or shiny lip balm n its perfect. I dont know about 14 hours but it does stay for a long time even after a messy meal... ideal for everyday use n worth the money
I have this in Non Stop Red, but I would not call this red by any means. On me, this is a very bright and intense fuschia hot pink. This color is not for the faint of heart.
Lasting power was very impressive for me. It made it through 2 cups of tea, a snack, and dinner. There was some loss of the initial perfection from when it was first applied, this occurred after about 2 hours, but it really did stay put otherwise. I experienced no flaking or cracking, and I tend to wear through my lipsticks rather quickly. The finish was matte and it died down to look like an intense matte lipstain. I liked the look of it, but it could easily make fine lines or dryness very noticeable. There was absolutely no feathering.
The formula felt a touch dry and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone suffering dry lips. But this was also a huge improvement from the 24 hour and Revlon Colorstay-type formulas that you paint on your lips with a wand. Yes, I felt it, but I didn't find it terribly irritating.
I think this is a formula that you either love or hate, but it's worth trying. I will be purchasing the shade Ravishing Rouge soon, so for me, this is a repurchase-worthy product.
I do like this product a lot, however it is very drying and if you add lip gloss it dissolves the product and makes it more gooey and comes off so easily. Also after a couple of hours it seems to flake and I am constantly checking to make sure it doesn't look patchy.
Overall, it is good. Better than most I have tried, much better than Superstay 24 hour which seems to have the same effect! the 14 hour have better colours and pigmentation but the feel of the dry lips is something you have to get used to if you want this product to last.
A little on the expensive side as well! but quite worth it. Catch it on offer, 3 for 2 or buy one get one half price...makes you feel 'slightly' better for splurging on yet another make up product.
Venia roto, no puedo decir mucho de el, pero no lo volvería a comprar.
I have this lipstick in Keep Me Coral. I really do not like the packaging, it is hard to open and not attractive. The color seems really pale when you put it on and then becomes overly bright and has a lot of sparkles in it which is not fantastic to me. The product itself with the texture is very drying and while it does have staying power, the color fades quickly and sticks your lips together. I don't recommend it to girls with bigger lips who don't like bright lipsticks.
I wanted to try this lipstick out after seeing a video by Lisa Eldridge on heat proof makeup, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. While I agree with the comments below about the lipstick being drying, I naturally have really dry lips anyway (I was on Roaccutane for a long time and dry lips are a permanent side effect), however, I didn't find this lipstick to be much more drying than some of the richer Estee Lauder lipsticks I've used in the past, for example. I regularly apply lip balm throughout the day anyway, and I find that this gives the lipstick a nice shine.
The staying effects of this lipstick are actually pretty impressive. I went to the gym and frequently stopped to drink water, and as I left, one of my friends asked if I'd just applied my lipstick, and the truth was I hadn't even touched it up since leaving my house in the morning! I have this lipstick in Stay with me Coral which is a great summer shade, very vibrant and fun. I've posted a picture of the colour after I'd applied it in the images at the top.
There's no way you can complain at the price of this lipstick. What it lacks in moisturising properties (which can easily be corrected with a swipe of gloss) it more than makes up for in terms of colour & staying power. Not all big brand lipsticks are worth the money you pay. Some are all style and no substance, whereas I think most would feel that they got a pretty good deal with this one. Granted the packaging isn't brilliantly fancy. It's not going to be a show piece like EL's golden bullets, but this is clean, convenient and serves its purpose really well.
Fantastic staying power
Excellent value for money
Applies well, but not as smoothly as some moisturising lipsticks
Lack of moisturising ingredients
Let's be honest, it's never going to last the full 14 hours, but does a really good job at lasting several hours without touch up even when eating and drinking
The bottom line is if you're looking for a long lasting, vibrant lipstick which you don't mind pairing with some gloss or lip balm, then go for it. It's a great little addition to anyone's makeup bag and it won't break the bank. I've already repurchased.
n.b.I would rate this 3.5 lippies overall and 2.5 lippies for packaging.

When i first saw these lipsticks i thought, wow they look horrible. The packaging is, at first, very off putting. It's very unconventional but now i've grown used to it. I bought one after watching Lisa Eldridge talk about how long lasting they were in one of her videos. Since then I've bought 2 more. I have Pout It Pink, Kiss Me Coral and Enduring Ruby. I love them all!
Opaque! Great colour payoff
Smooth, easy to apply
Very long lasting
Decent price, unless you live in Australia like myself (wait for it to go on sale)
Dries up, you'd definitely regret not wearing a lip balm underneath
Has a very strong smell, reminds me of sherbet (i dont mind it but i know others do)
Weird, unattractive packaging
I was disappointed with this product. I got it in 'non stop red'. I thought I was getting a bright bold matt lipstick. Instead I got a clumpy tint that was really sticky and glossy. The texture is favourable at all unless you like your lips superglued together. This product isn't for me but, i think it's because my lips are very plump . On smaller lips and pale or lighter skin, it may work but for me I really regret purchasing it and I should've tried before I bought.
Aside from not seeing the small crack in the top :( hence the low package score, but no major deal, I got this at Kmart in the shade Perpetual Peony. I don't normally buy drugstore brands as they are often similarly priced as MAC lipsticks and don't deliver. I don't own any other lippies in this shade... It's a very very cool toned matte pale pink with a tinge of lavender even. It is slightly similar to MAC viva glam gaga but more lavender-y. That's what roped me in since I basically have every color of the rainbow. The color's gorgeous and so summery :) it looks very good w my cool toned pinky light/med skin and red hair... Itd prob suit many skin tones. The formula is kinda odd but in a good way. It goes on real slick like a gloss but then when it dries it is ON THERE. All the other matte lipsticks I own that claim to be long wearing are dry upon application; when I first put it on it was so wet I said no way is this gona last. So then that peculiar drying effect happens and the color MAY lose a slight dab of intensity but still basically stays true. I loooove matte long wearing lippies and I highly recommend this one, esp in this shade. So perfect for a pretty, subtle yet noticeable summer daytime go-to. Although I will definitely be trying one or two other shades!!
Love, Love, Love this lipstick! I purchased "Non-Stop Red" and I cannot believe how long lasting this colour is- I cant speak for the rest of the range. I too bought this because of a recommendation by Lisa Eldridge and have worn it every day since purchased! I have those kind of lips which lipstick just doesn't cling too and I gave up buying bolder colours for a while. However, really impressed with this product!
