Lovely color, but it has no staying power. Also it makes my lips peel and flake, which is gross. Not worth it.

I actually bought mine at the CNE (for all you CANADIANS out there, you know where that is), inside one of those outdoor stalls that sell lots of stuff for discounted prices! I bought 3: Forever Fressia, a beautiful light purple colour (I really liked the name of it but when I wore this colour, I honestly saw no difference in my lips...so I gave it to my sister and it looks really nice on her!), Endless Spice, a nice reddish brown tone colour (Not that much of a difference in my lips as well but there is still a bit of colour) and my favourite which I knew from the start Forever Fuchsia, a beautiful hot pink colour that drastically changes your lips and your teeth (illusionally).

They're very easy to use and the colour payoff is amazing, but the former two, not on my lips ^.^' The packaging looks like a big fat marker and one lasts a very long time, just purchased these last summer and still going strong. Since I have 3, the scent is relatively the same, not much, if any difference between each tint. One major aspect about them is that they're definitely NOT 16HR proof, never actually gauged how long it lasts but it's not 16HR, I know that for sure, but when I do, I will update this for you beauties out there!

The big FAT CON: I don't think there's any!

I don't get 16 hours out of these, but I like them pretty well. The colours all tend towards berry on me, though that might just be my skin tone and my lips. So they're all just a rich pink on me, and unless I really scrub and exfoliate my lips beforehand, they look pretty bad. If I have dry or cracked lips, I have to stay far away from them. They also will bleed and feather if I get them too close to the edge of my lips, which is new for me but could also be me getting older. I wore the champagne colour on my wedding day, which came out a pleasant berry and looked very natural, and most importantly, it didn't kiss off on my groom. So I'm pretty fond of them, and when my lips are in really good shape, they're great. When I'm having dry or chapped lips, less so. But they're still one of the better drugstore lip stains for me. If I could give these 3.5 stars, I would.

In my opinion these $5 lip stains are undiscovered beauty classics. I have Persistent Pink (bright rosy pink), Endless Spice ( a natural brown-red), and my favorite, Never Ending Nude ( a pinky-red nude color). They all deliver the perfect healthy flush of color to lips and last for a good part of the day. HG!

I bought the Endless Spice, expecting it to be a pinkish nude color, based on the color listed on the display, in store and online. I opened it and the tip was a reddish color; then I tried it and it was completely RED. Super disappointing. I don't like how it goes on either: the applicator is weird and it's hard to get the product on. It was also pretty pricey for NYC. I'm an avid customer of NYC products, and this was just all around disappointing.

I bought this in Rock on Ruby and I have to say the color is gorgeous. It's unusable for me though. I'm a habitual lip licker. One lick and it's just gone with no staining what so ever. If I put balm over it to try and extend its life (I really do love this color), no matter what balm I try, it feathers and wears horribly. Balm also causes it to smudge on things; not really smooch proof when I do that.

I exfoliate my lips regularly and give them a little scrub before I apply any kind of stain. This just doesn't work for me.

Ah, nostalgia. I bought this in Endless Spice years and years ago and just found it in an old purse that I was cleaning out to give away. That was long before I was actually into makeup or knew what I was doing with it, but I remember how much I LOVED this lip product. The color is a great slightly deep (for my fair skin) MLBB shade and I got so many compliments on it back then!

This review is based on my impression of it when I first got it many years ago, but I was pretty impressed when I pulled it out of this purse after so many years & it wasn't dried up at all, though the color did seem to be watery and not very pigmented. I tried it on my lips and there wasn't much color, though what little color there was did cling to my annoying dry patches in the middle of my lower lip. Pretty typical of stains on my lips.

Overall, I used Endless Spice a lot in college and I'm inspired to try these again now that I am more knowledgable about makeup, and because they seem to have decent reviews!

The product was pretty good at first. But after a few times of it being used it got kinda dry and it didn't work as well as it did before. Now I doesn't even work. I wish the product had more because there isn't that much. Also it didn't really last as long as it said it was supposed to.
The "Rock on Ruby 497" went on smoothly but very dry and it smelled pretty good. After a minute of have product on my lips felt very dry and chapped. If I were you IWOULDN'T get this product. It's cheap but it isn't worth it.
