Oh dear, Oh My, this lipstick doesn't stay. Eats right off.
I've used long-lasting lip pigments before, and I've always found them to last through the day, enduring meals and beverages without a hint of coming off.
Not this stuff. Soon as I ate - Agh!!! frightening lips. And the worst part is that it only partially comes off. The outer edges of my lips still had the dye, the inner center of my lips was bare, and in between was that frightening, peely-looking pigment texture.
The color I used was Perfect, so I am very, very sad about this.
I'll stick to Revlon and L'oreal for my lip pigments. Or better yet, find one that doesn't test on animals. That is SO passe.

NOTE: some of these colors are being discontinued including Everlasting Ruby which is the most amazing rich red color ever, deep and not at all orangey or garnish like many other reds. Perfect red for a vintage look 20s-50s. On and On Orchid, my daily wear color for almost 4 yrs also seems to be disappearing from store shelves. It is a nice plum-mauve that is a good moderate color for day or night wear.
The key to applying this is to make sure your lips are flake free and completely clean, no lip balm or moisturizer. Apply quickly, ONE LAYER only, let dry 5 MINUTES then put on the balm. Then just reapply the balm throughout the day. I put the color coat on after foundation but before I do my eyes, that way it's completely dry when I go to put the balm on after finishing my eyes. The balm does run out quicker than the color but there is almost as much in the base of the tube so I carry a lipbrush to apply the balm with when it wears down to the tube and get several more weeks' use out of it. I recommend this to all of my bridal clients and they all fall in love with it!
I apply this lipcolor early in the morning and rarely ever have to reapply. The only foods that will remove this product are greasy things like oil based salad dressing, some soup or greasy foods like fried chicken. To remove this product I use Neutrogena oil free eye makeup remover or the Target Up and Up equivalent.
I have had very severe eczema on my lips for nearly 10 years and the long lasting quality as well as the lacquer like consistency of the lipcolor serve to help seal the moisture in my poor lips. As a result, I have been using it for almost 4yrs straight. Having to use other "wetter" lipsticks and glosses that are constantly wearing off/needing to be reapplied is absolute torture as the eczema is exacerbated by wet conditions. This lipstick has literally saved my sanity having to deal with my painful condition!!

I won this in a wheel spinny thing, but it is normally around $8. The colour is really rich and it doesn't feel too drying and it passes both the kissing test and a hot and cold drink test which is awesome. Actually the only negative part about it was the next morning when I have to use a lip scrub to get the remainder of it off. The clear gloss end is super moisturizing and gives it some nice shine. The applicator for the colour is shaped really nicely and once you get used to it, it is really nice for application.
Overall I would say that it's a really solid product and when I run out I will definitely be buying again, especially in this colour.
9/10 will buy again (for the first time?)

This stuff is like putting house paint on your lips. It took several tries to get it to look even and my lips felt really tight. I used the balm and things felt a bit better. We went to dinner and a movie and I went to the restroom before the movie...looked in the mirror and to my horror I had pieces of the "paint" hanging off my lips!!!! I missed part of the movie trying to get this crap off my lips and then went and slapped my husband for letting me walk around like that in public lol This stuff is and absolute nightmare! My lips were swollen and red for a couple days after ... it's now in a landfill somewhere far far away...ugh!

YES YES YES!!! HG!!! This stuff is nothing short of a lipstick miracle, I've been using it exclusively since it was introduced - this knocks Lipsense right out of the water. It lasts for hours, not expensive, readily available at your local drugstore, comfortable on the lips, doesn't flake off easily (if you put it on right and use fresh product), doesn't smell or taste disgusting. Wish there were more rich reds to choose from, but I'm happy with Keep Up The Flame, although it's just a touch dark for me. I can easily layer it with a lighter shade, though. PLEASE, Maybelline, don't EVER stop making this. I can shape my mouth any way I please, draw way beyond my lipline with it with no feathering, no lip pencils, no problems, smears can be easily fixed, it doesn't dry instantaneously, nor does it dry out your lips like Lipsense. I get constant compliments on my lipstick and people are amazed at how long it lasts. I will never ever ever ever ever ever use regular lipstick again. This is it. I took off one lippie because the cap tends to slip off the gloss portion while stored in my make up bag. Maybelline, just work on the colors and the packaging. Otherwise, it's brilliant, nothing else can touch it!!! Please keep it on the shelves!!!

After seeing so many great reviews of this product I decided to bite the bullet and try one out. I selected a my lips but better and darker shade, reliable raspberry. The color was pretty and not super dark. I started to apply the color and it went on super streaky, leaving tons of product on certain areas and none on others. I applied another layer to even the color out, and then pressed my lips together to fill any gaps and hopefully blend the color over the lips a bit better. Bad idea. They were stuck together and took quite a bit of effort to get them apart. The color was splotchy and not smooth at all. My lips looked incredibly dry. I put the balm over top and that just made my lips look like a shiny-finish wreck instead of a satin-finish wreck. I immediately went to the bathroom to take the lipstick off.
The process of removal was long and painful. It took me about 20 minutes to remove all of it. I initially tried just water. That did literally nothing. But then again, neither did a water-based remover nor an oil-based remover. I tried my MUFE sens'eyes which removes my waterproof mascara beautifully, and isn't even meant for lips but that didn't work either. The only think that worked was physical removal with a rough, dry paper towel. I had to scrub the product off of my lips. After that, my lips were inflamed and puffy for the rest of the day.
The only positive of the experience is that since I have small lips, the inflamed puffiness made me look like I had lip injections, albeit a bit extreme of a job. Unfortunately, the skin surrounding my lips was also red so it wasn't a look that I would show off to the world.

I used this on my wedding day and I was pleasently surprised. I found that I had to wait for the lipstick to dry a little then apply the balm. It lasted for most of the day. I did a few touch ups but I didn't really need to. It didnt transfer onto my veil or rub off on my husband which were the only things I was worried about.

I was very disappointed with this product. The color quality was striking, but about five minutes after applying the stain and balm, my lips dried up. I had to constantly reapply the balm.

A nude long lasting lip color at last. I bought the nude which is misleadingly called 'hot brown'.
It's actually a lovely pale but not ghostly peachy beige and I love it. Lasted for hours and will buy again. Packaging is vile...apart from that, top marks.
I used a gloss over this to liven it up. Now I know my lips will be pale 60's retro all day and evening and I only need a dab of gloss...makeup remover ( baby lotion) removes this.
A great purchase. Just wish they made the color without the 'balm'
I have so many and a bigger amount of color would be better.

I was introduced to lip stain when I was given a different brand to try and I was hooked, but the moment I tried this one (about 3 years ago) I was hooked. It is lightweight and long lasting and I LOVE that I only have to put it on once a day.
If I were to change anything it would be that the cap on the moisturizing side would stay on better (it comes off too easily so I have to put it in a smaller pocket so it doesn't have enough room to fall off) and that there would be more of the moisturizing side in general.
Even if they don't change a thing, I love it and I'm concerned it will disappear and I'll be stuck with *lipstick again. Blech. I have about 7 colors but I noticed recently that Target was low on them and I am hoping it isn't being discontinued.
One other thing I should mention... once you throw the box away you have to have really strong eyesight or a magnifying glass to see the color name on the end of the tube.
