I would not classify this as a lipstick, but rather as a stain. I wear this as an overall pick me up on days when I don't feel like wearing that much makeup but still need a boost of color. This color specifically is very similar to my natural lip color, so it doesn't look like I'm wearing any product at all.

I didn't like this color or product at all; picked it up after reading about it on a makeup website.
Price: I paid $9 at Target, which I think about average nowadays for drugstore lipsticks.
Packaging: decent, nice wand, tube has some heft
Color: I have pale skin, but am an ash-brown brunette, and this read awful on me, some shade of burnt orange with a peachy undertone and not anything like an enhanced natural lip color. While it went on slick, it dried tacky and chalky looking. This part was my mistake though, as this is supposed to be a long-wear product, and I should have realized from experience that I'm no fan of how those make my lips feel. I tend to gravitate towards sheer plums and nude pinks (NARS Stolen Kisses is an HG of mine), and although I've worn MAC's Spice (which this has been compared to), the two look completely different on my lips. I think I've learned my lesson about buying when I can't try it first.

Didn't like this at all. It was very sticky to put on and it left my lips like sticky gooey paint. It constantly needed lipgloss over it to stop that sticky feeling and my lips hydrated as it dried my lips out. I felt I needed to lick my lips to moisten them constantly. At the end of the day, only a little colour left and it was caked into my lip lines. Not nice.
Wouldn't buy again.

I bought this because I, like a lot of darker skinned women, have a hard time finding a nude lip product that doesn't look like I've eaten powdered donuts or that is opaque enough to cover my dual toned lips (darker upper, lighter bottom). This achieves those things but the application is unforgiving. You can't just whip this on willy-nilly...you need a mirror and a steady, quick hand. The feeling is a bit dry, as others have mentioned, but I can deal because of the color and staying power.

A friend of mine had asked me to try this new lipstick she got, when I tried it on, I really did like it. I was surprised about the color, because I usually go for more pinkish- redish lip color, so when I tried this one, I really liked it. When I saw it was a nude, I hesitated on trying it but after, I fell in love with it. I did make me look a little, which I needed because I have a baby face. Over all, I really did like this color!!

I have this obsesion with lipsticks that are the color of lips, but maybe with a bit more punch. I should say my obsesion is more with trying to find this type of color (the natural shade of lips times 2 or 3.) This color by itself suits all the features I look for. For a transfer resistant lipstick, I'll take it as I love the color (it's a nude and when in doubt this goes w/everything.) I'm not the biggest fan of transfer resistant anything as I find they make whatever texture they're used over just becomes moreso. I.E. Transfer resistant foundation when appled over flakey dry skin just makes the final result moreso. When applied over acne scarred/pitted skin it just accentuates the downfalls of this skin type whereas a "regular foundation/lipstick" improves the overall texture they are applied over.Not that transfer resistant does not have it's benefits. It's marvelous in the way it just stays and stays put right where you want it to. Never does it move to clothing/cell phones, etc. I actually use/mix this w/a L'Oreal "Infallible" lipstick duo which is just slightly lighter in color. I use this mix w/a lipstick brush and use the brush as a lipliner, slightly overdrawing the lip contour. I let it dry and fill in. I will use this mixture as a lipliner w/most any lipstick. It gives me the color value of MAC's "Spice" lipliner, but never moves/comes off. Highly Recommended!!!

I have never tried a longwear lipstick (unless you consider MAC Ruby Woo a longwear lippie ha)...and this is very interesting. I didnt realize the consistancy of the product until I put it on my lips...it dries to an almost matte finish...I like the way my lips look...but I know if I ever applied on dry lips it would be an issue...overall I like it for what it does...I apply it over the Hazelnut ColorBurst lipstick (which I LOVE)...
as far as the color...if you are familiar with the Hazelnut Colorburst, it is the exact same color as that...it works very well for my NC45/50 skin...it really blends into my pigmented lips nicely...keep a lipgloss handie though!

#1 Nude is a strong bronzey nude-pink with fine gold shimmer. I love the color because it's strong and makes a statement, but it still looks natural. And in my case, it's similar to the color of my hair, so it creates a nice effect. I'm thinking of trying other colors like Bubbly and Top Tomato.
This lipstick takes some care to apply correctly because it's pigmented and in liquid form. I first apply a little #1 Nude to my lips to get it started, then outline in beige pencil (NYX Beige), then add a bit more #1 Nude to create an even coat and crisp edges. You can't smear or press your lips together while this is drying, but once it sets, it's on forever. It still feels a little tacky once it dries, but I look past that because I like the color and wear so much. I have to scrub it off at the end of the day and usually use some petrolatum-based product to do so.
I bought this because I drink coffee or soda all day long, and it was a pain reapplying lipstick. It also serves well for parties or events because you don't have to worry about your lipstick looking uneven or coming off while you're talking with people and eating/drinking.
I never really considered this line of lipsticks before, but I had a $3 off coupon, and I wanted something long-wearing, so I gave it a go. This formula really does serve a great purpose if you find a shade you like and can work with the application.

This immediately became my everyday lipstick for work. I can't touch up my lips at work, often work 5-7 hours before I get a break. I am talking the whole time at my job. I really needed to find something long wearing that didn't wear off unevenly and leave me with the horrible look where you have color around the edges of your mouth and nothing in the middle. I tried a few other products then decided to give this one a try. Oh, do I love it! It really stays on and it looks great when I finally get a chance to look at it. It sets pretty quickly, but it does give you enough time to apply it. If you make a mistake, wipe it off quickly. It does feel a bit dry on my lips after it dries, but it does not seem to dry my lips out at all, which surprises me. Other long wearing lip products that I have tried were very drying. This is the perfect natural looking color that gives me enough color to look good, but is not at all obvious. I have to wear red and black at work, and this is neutral enough to work.

I am a lipstick/lipgloss maven. I have over 100 lipsticks & glosses. So I would consider myself rather picky when it comes to lip products. I was a bit skeptical about this Colorstay product, as I tend to have dry lips & need to constantly slather balm or moisturizing gloss on my lips.
First of all, the color selection is rather dismal, IMO. I could only find this 1 color to work with my Asian medium olive skintone. That said, I really do love this color. I have naturally rosy pigmented lips, so whenever I see a color with the word "nude" in it, it usually means it won't show up on my lips at all. This is a nice browned neutral color that covers up my pigmented lips very well.
A complaint is that too much of the product comes out at once. You really only need a very thin layer. So I end up with the excess scraped off & collecting at the top of the gloss. Ick! I apply a thin layer to my bottom lip, then smack my lips together to get coverage on my top lips, & that is really all I need. I let it dry for a good 2 minutes before applying my much-needed gloss on top.
I wouldn't pay full price for this. Got it on sale for 40% off plus I had a $1 off coupon, so it was a good deal. Would definitely repurchase with a sale and/or coupon.
When I'm gone for a weekend, I usually end up packing 12-15 lipsticks & glosses with me. My last weekend away, all I packed with me was this liquid lipstick plus a coordinating lipgloss. That's saying a lot!!!

- good staying power
- greatly pigmented color
- very nice color; it's an understated color, but doesn't look like a faded nude, so your lips still pop out.
- slightly drying (do not attempt to wear a lipbalm over or under, because the color will most likely not last very long)
- because it dries your lips, it emphasizes the lip lines
- weird smell (and noise when you take the brush out of the tube)
I would say I would buy it again because of the color and its staying power (and it shouldn't be too hard to find some on sale!)

Love this! I've had it for a while and I don't think I knew how to use it best until I read how to here. Letting this dry is key. Not putting any gloss or balm ensures all day wear.
Since I usually have chapped dry lips, I've found it most useful to slick this on not long out of the shower. This just lasted through a big, crazy, buttery lobster meal! The tacky sticky texture is not my favorite, but I'll take that over lipstick that doesn't last.

I really wished I could give this a 3.5!
I picked this up today on a whim. Rite aid had a 40% off plus I had a coupon, so I thought I would try this product. It is otherwise pretty expensive, about $11. I was expecting it to be a pigmented lip gloss for some reason, and so I was surprised when I opened the bottle and saw that it was a very liquid texture.
I donít know if the packaging I got is defective, but the opening doesnít scrape off any of the product when you pull out the doe foot applicator like I usually expect with lip glosses. I guess that is kind of minor, but noticeable. Otherwise, I like the look of it. It looks pretty classy. It is kind of like a long and skinny version of the Colorstay foundation bottles. The cap has the clear overlay over a black core like the foundation cap, which looks nice, but I have seen these crack and fill with product (for the foundation) and I would hate if that happened here. It does feel thick and sturdy though, not cheap at all. That is really good because I hate it when the lids crack on these kinds of products that are subject to a lot of abuse.
At first it goes on thin and watery, then the color dries is becomes sticky and I donít like the feel. It doesnít seem to ever dry all the way, and so I hate that feeling alone. This is really just like those other long wear lip colors that usually come with a color and a gloss/balm. (like the previous Revlon Overtime lip color or Maybelline super stay) This one does not come with a balm, and I think it should. It is more like a lip stain then a traditional lip gloss or lipstick. It is very drying on the lips. I put it on over a lip balm I already had on and it completely dried it up instantly. It was crazy! I think it needs a special kind of balm, and I am still experimenting with what works. Some of the ones I have used just make the color flake off. I guess it depends on the type, I think more waxy ones donít work. I think it is better to put the color on and then put on balm so that the color can adhere to the lips better. I think I will try it with a balm designed for these kinds of lip colors. I believe Maybelline and Líoreal sell them individually. If I can find one that works, then I might repurchase. However, if I canít, it just doesnít work for someone like me who cannot stand the dry feeling on my lips.
So, does the color stay? Yes. I wore it today and I didnít transfer onto my straw. It only faded a little from eating. That is very impressive. So, while not the most comfortable lip product, it does what it says and really does last a long time.
The color selection isnít very good in my opinion. It has a lot of pinks, red and corals. Not much in the way of nude or natural lip colors, which is what I am normally drawn to. Also, the color in the tube is not what it translates on the lips at all, so that is misleading. This had a pretty shimmer in the tube. On the lips it dries to a matte finish. Where did that pretty shimmer go? This color, #1 Nude, is not very nude in my opinion. It is more like a ďmy-lips-but-betterĒ shade, only a little darker then what my lips normally are. (NC15-20 by the way) and I chose it because it was the most natural looking out of all the ones there. It had sort of a brown/rose color and is very warm. Although it was not what I was expecting, I did like it. It is nice during fall and winter to warm up my face and is a nice change from the pale nudes I normally wear. It is perfect for a very natural look. It makes me look pretty and polished without screaming I am wearing makeup. I donít think this is the kind of nude I would wear with dark make up because for my coloring it is quite dark, but is nice pared with a simple eye look.
I am on the fence on this still. My first impression was disappointing, but I am trying not to let what it was expecting it to be versus what it really is influence me too much. I hope I can make it work because I do like the color and the long wear ability. I am marking 'will buy again' purely out of optimism, but if i cant find a way to make it less drying on my lips, then I will have to change that.

This color is a soft rosy brown (leans more towards brown) with just a little bit of shimmer. On me, this is MLBB. It is really drying, like all other long lasting lipsticks, but I don't mind, since I wasn't really searching for a lipstick like that anyway. I just wear clear gloss over it. I think I'd only purchase this if it was on sale though (I got a BOGOF deal), because 11 dollars for a drugstore lipstick is kind of expensive.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other, Fair Hair: Red, Wavy Eyes: Green
i like this, it wears like long wearing lipsticks do, i was expecting the dryness, i also expected it not to be a light nude (it looks dark in the tube) it reminds me of colors i wore in hs in the late 90s.. natural, not nude. i love it because as others said gloss over it looks amazing!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
This isn't a light colored nude-lip nude, but it's like a natural lip nude. I have pretty dark lips, and this is still darker than my lip color. It's a very natural red-brown, like a burgundy brick color? A dusty red-brown.
It's pretty dark for me so I use it in the evening, because on my lips I like a more natural look for day. I could see it to be great for clubbing, weddings, other glam events like that.
I usually have a hard time finding a moisturizing lipstick (Boots Moisture Shine is the only one I've found, tho I've heard Benefit and Clinique have good ones). This is one of the only lipsticks I can wear that don't make my lips dry and flaky.
It is not transfer proof but it transfers way more slowly than a gloss. You could definitely get through one meal with this on, maybe two if you eat carefully.
When you first put it on, you have to make sure it's wear you want it, using a mirror. Don't put it on too thick. You'll feel it drying... when it's completely dry I tap a little bit of gloss on my bottom lip and press my lips together... then the color feels more like a gloss and is comfortable for hours!

Probably as close to a HG as I have ever found in a lipstick. Most lipsticks turn hot pink on me. This one finally is a pink I can handle. I do not detect any brown in it at all when applied to my lips.
Goes on a bit lighter than the color looks in the tube. A very nice neutral. Seems to last most of the day even when I apply a gloss or a chapstick over it. Seems like it fades a bit more evenly then some of the long lasting products I have used in the past (mostly CG or Maybellene)
I would like to find a neutral with more brown in it, but I am pleased with this purchase.

There's nothing new or different about this liquid lipstick (not a gloss). Its basically just one of those double ended 12hr lip colours, minus the clear glossy end. The shade, nude, didn't do anything for me. Its not a light nude lip that you can pair with smokey eyes, nor is it a pretty pinky nude to brighten up your complexion. Its just a rosy brown nude that just darkens your lips a shade or two. The formula is drying, so you have to put gloss or chapstick over it, which defeats the purpose of colorstay b/c the moisturizers in chapstick will remove the Revlon liquid lipgloss. The only thing i really like about it is the packaging, nice long slender tube with lots of product and a doe foot applicator. The price is also a little expensive for what it is, there are other similar products for much cheaper AND they include the clear gloss side in one stick.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
This is one of my favorite lip products if I have a busy day ahead of me. You only have to apply it once in the morning & it literally lasts all day! I know it can be a bit drying on it's own but it's nothing a little bit of lip balm or gloss can't fix (I prefer balm, easier to put on in a hurry :D) So that being said, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a better than natural lipcolor!

I was alarmed when I pulled the wand from the tube and it was anything but a lip gloss. However, the color and longevity won me over. Will repurchase as soon as I run out!
