I'm glad this product works for some people, but I was certainly not one of them.I bought this in 'True chocolate' and was super excited about the dark color when I put it on. It didn't go on my lips very evenly but I used a brush instead of the wand it comes with and everything was great.For the first 50 minutes or so, that is. I knew the 14 hour claim was going to be bogus, but I'd hoped to get at least 3-4 hours. Nope, not even one. In no time at all it turned "gummy" on my lips, becoming very sticky and blotting off in large clumps. Not a good look for me. I thought maybe I'd just applied too much since I was so in love with the color and wanted as much pigment as possible, but I tried again another day applying only a thin coat and the same thing happened. I tried with moisturized lips, without moisturized lips, with lip liner, without lip liner... I really wanted to find a way to make this work for me. But it wasn't meant to be.

I have these in a multitude of colors, and from what I see in the negative reviews, expectations of long-wearing lipcolor are a little off. Long-wearing from almost any brand that offers them are just about exclusively what I wear--I always start the day off with one unless it's a no make-up+sunscreen day (ALWAYS zinc oxide &/or titanium dioxide for me x24 years now, everyday), 1. Yes, they absolutely can be drying for a lot of people. I have dry skin I top off with Aquaphor every night and many days, but I esp. recommend it at night to make antioxidant serums & lotions air tight. And I use a primarily beeswax lip balm at night since it not only works, but beeswax has antiviral/microbial properties (try it over abreva for a fever blister & voila! Caught early, nothing ever happens,)2. Expect to need to reapply the included gloss with any such product. THIS IS WHY THEY INCLUDE IT. There are some lipsticks that can be used on top, but expect most to make it wear off faster (see below for more on my use of them towards the end of the day & wear).3. It's not for everyone. By the end run of it (usually 6-10 hours depending on what you eat, particularly anything with any sort of oiliness to it which includes salad dressing, pastas, fried chicken, etc.), you'll likely see an ombre effect on your lips where you have less on the inside of your lip and more along the edges. Remember this is long-lasting and not a whole lip tattoo, so there is going to be some wear, like it or not. 4. Sometimes you get some pilling too. I'll take that over reapplying regular lipstick after every swig of coffee, but that's my preference. If you reapply a little gloss (or a compatible lipstick), it's less of a problem. A lot less. I like to carry with me one of the Covergirl lip glosses that come with those since it's independent, allowing me to keep my long-lastings in my cosmetics case. 5. I love the ombre effect towards the end because then it's play time! I whip out a not-so-but-still-mostly long-lasting lipstick in a tube (such as Clinique long lasting, esp. in sugarbean or angel red, or Sephora in No. 25 depending on what I have on) and get a lovely depth, continuing the ombre effect. Colors: my hands down go-to red is Stay Current (I'm wearing it in two of my profile pics) and the perfect for just about everyone neutral is Eternally Tan. Endless Spice is nice too, but it's paler than Eternally Tan, and I'm really not a fan of pale lips, ever. I think it doesn't look right on anyone. I strongly suggest giving Eternally Tan a shot (you can blot it once quickly if you find it too dark. Sometimes I do a quick one-time blot to bring it down a notch, and the same with Stay Current--I ALWAYS end up blotting that one). I'm on my 3rd tube of each of these colors & have probably another dozen Revlon & other brands. I find Revlon & Covergirl last the night, with Maybelline & L'Oreal not hitting a long enough mark for me (wearing off by hour 4-6). You can also mix them! Eternally Tan & Endless Spice are INCREDIBLE at toning down (bold colors like red or berry) or bringing depth (pinks or mauves) to any other color. And it's fun!You won't be at all disappointed as long as you're aware of the above. I'm a die-hard for these to the point I won't waste my money on anything but long-lasting for a minimum of 4 hours. Another tip to prevent dryness (I do realize some people are affected more than others): Eos lipbalms are beeswax-based among other fabulous, all natural emollient oils and come in all sorts of fun flavors! I'm hooked on strawberry :)

The staying power on this stuff is AMAZING, especially for the price. My friend and I both wore the Forever Scarlet shade to a party and it lasted all night - didn't budge at all through eating or drinking and there was still pink coming off on my washcloth when I washed my face the next morning. Very highly pigmented. The actual lip color does tend to be a little drying (as most long-lasting lip products are,) but the clear gloss portion takes care of any dryness. I feel like the gloss smelled a little weird but that's really my only gripe with this product. I just wish they had a good orange shade.

This stuff is gross...You know that ONE product that forces you to finally write a review? This is the one.The color is gummy and takes forever to dry.A thin coat is too thin and see-through, and a thick coat comes off in chunks and sticks to your teeth.The gloss is terrible. The little brush makes it impossible to apply and its not moisturizing at all, just sticky.Never again.

***The easiest way I have found to remove this product is carmex! Put it on and leave it for a few minutes, and then you can just wipe it away.*** I have this in 'stay currant' [#508?] it is a rich dark red. I absolutely love it. I have tried a ton of super long lasting lip products, and this tops them all. It takes a bit of time to get an even coat; if you apply carelessly it will look patchy and funky and be horrid to correct. However, once you get it looking right, it will stay that way all day. I most like that the topcoat keeps it looking glossy looking while having incredible staying power. As in, *incredible*. You have to scrub to get it off! If you don't commit to one lipcolor per day, this is definitely not for you. This really is an extremely long wear product. It still looks great at the end of the day, too. I plan on trying more colors!

Love this product! It definitely has amazing staying power. I own Forever Scarlet and Ultimate Wine. I've taken a great liking to Revlon products as I've explored the brand in recent months. Although their ColorStay Ultimate Suede lipsticks last a pretty long time, nothing can compare to Overtime. The gloss does wear after a while, but the color remains as fresh as the moment you first applied it. I don't mind the gloss dulling after a while because it's a little sticky. I'm actually glad it does dull because nothing is more annoying than having sticky lips ALL DAY LONG (aside from color constantly coming off). The only con I can really speak for is that I've noticed this product has a little bit of a drying effect on my lips. Although it doesn't flake while I'm wearing this product, I find myself liberally applying a moisturizing balm after taking it off. Also, baby wipes and/or Neutrogena Make Up Remover wipes really does the trick for taking this product off (because YES, it does stay on no matter what - drinking coffee, eating, etc). I've never had to retouch my lips since using this product, which is perfect for me as I never really have time for touch-ups at my work!

This stuff never comes off and has serious staying power. I am not a girl who retouched her makeup throughout the day so I love this stuff. I have multiple shades and I wear this daily for a 12 hour work shift. I have turned multiple girlfriends onto this lip stick as we will go out and wake up the next morning and they will be in awe that my lipstick is still on! Definitely a win for me!

This product does last, you just have to apply it correctly. Apply a thin layer, let it dry, apply a 2nd thin layer, let it dry, lastly apply gloss. I find that using this method results in a longer-lasting color. The product smells like paint and settles into every crack and line on your lips. You need very healthy lips to pull this product off. With that said, it is highly pigmented and does as it promises. I've put this on in the morning and returned home that evening to find it still looking sharp, after meals, coffee, etc. The gloss is not long lasting, but the color is. It took a few tries to find the colors that work for me. I presently use eternal rose and ultimate wine. A few of the others I tried looked too painted on. I would probably buy this again, but I prefer Maybelline 14 hour. It lasts longer and is less expensive.

This is my HG lipstick. Love the colors and it stays on. My favorite colors are Bare Maximum (it is like a nude kicked up a notch) and Endless Spice (the perfect mauvey-pink - a nude pink you might say). Bare Maximum will go with whatever I'm wearing. I have brown eyes and purple eyeshadow really makes them stand out. I've always had a hard time finding a lipstick that complemented it. Other color I love is Endless Spice. I have not had good luck with the reds in this collection Scarlet and one other. I do like Always Sienna though. It's more of a burgundy wine red than true red. Endless Iris is a little too sheer for me. I'm nit picking though. This does well on my lips - doesn't dry them. Stays on.

I'm not normally a big lipstick wearer, more of a tinted balm girl, but this is the only lipstick I use. I find it stays on best when I apply 2 thin layers and let it dry in between. I have Bare Maximum and Non-stop Cherry. Both colors are fabulous and versatile. I use Bare Maximum mostly when I have alot of eye makeup on and Cherry usually with a more subdued eye, but both can be applied lighter/heavier, which I've done on occasion, and really work for me. Also I use Blistex Silk n Shine lip balm and when I've left the Revlon at home, I can put that overtop of the lipstick to keep my lips moisturized and it doesn't break down the color.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
