I purchased this product just to try something other than my fave Elizabeth Arden Lip Fix which I have used since it was introduced in the Ice Age :-) this MAC product works well, it's $16, the Lip Fix is $21.50, but I don't think this tube will last quite as long as the Lip Fix does. It did stop the feathering of a glossy pink lipstick that I wear which is what I wanted. I would recommend this if you like this type of application, but just found Lip Fix on Ebay for $9.99 plus shipping, considerably less than reg. retail and still cheaper than the MAC, still like the Lip Fix better, can't teach an old dog new tricks :-(

I use this every time I wear lipstick. It keeps my lipstick in place for hours. As another reviewer said, it does seem to work best with MAC lipsticks, but will do with others. You are suppose to apply and wait for it to get tacky before applying lipstick, but once you do, lipstick goes on very smoothly. I'm on my 3rd tube. One complaint is it is not well packaged and there isn't a lot in there for the money, but it's worth it. I will keep buying.

After reading the reviews for this product I ordered a tube from MAC. I used it exactly the way the reviews (leave it on until its tacky before applying liner/lipstick) said and WOW!!! My lipstick lasts for hours through drinking and eating without smudging. My lips remain soft and supple with this products and not dried out and peeling like many other lip primer products I had tried. I have been using this product for a year and would not be without it.
One caveat is that it works best with MAC lipsticks. It does work OK with other lipstick brands, but with MAC lipsticks it’s a knockout punch!
Only drawbacks are that I wish for the price of this product that they would package this like a regular tube of lipstick quantity wise. It’s a very small amount for the price and also its annoying when the product falls out of the tube. Also, local stores tend to run out of it quickly so I tend to offer online - MAC often sends me free shipping offers.
Thank you again MakeupAlley reviewers for keeping my closet empty from unused products that don’t work and my wallet full to afford the products that I love that DO work!

This product helps in keeping your lip colour longer and it provides some moisture, allowing you to skip a coating of balm which can potentially reduce the longevity of the colour. It has a nice vanilla scent and applies easily onto the lips. This product does way more than a lip balm does, balms don't help in adhering the colour to your lips as they have slip. I don't use this every day because it is expensive and you get so little product :(. When I'm going out, or have a special occasion; I will use this. It isn't a miracle product but it does really help!

I really didn't notice a difference with this, and I was for sure that I would! I read another review where someone said their's broke, and I was thinking to myself, "That sucks, it probably won't happen to me, since I don't roll anything up too far if not needed." WRONG. Used it one time and it wasn't even rolled up much at all, and it broke at the bottom of the stick. :( I don't think I'll repurchase. I really thought it would make a difference! It really didn't at all. It didn't keep my lipstick on any longer than it would have if I wouldn't have used this. I'll still use it, because it's no worse/no better than my EOS lip balm that I usually use. Such a bummer!

Very good product. Preps the lips for lipliner and lipstick very well - hydrates the lips and makes the lipstick look very smooth (lines won't show). You should leave it in for 1-2 minutes before applying lipstick. The packaging is great - doesn't melt and fall off like some previous review stated (maybe if you leave it in the sun or hot place then it would) but at a room temperature away from the sun, it won't melt at all. Great product - do not hesitate and do buy.

I Love this product, there is nothing worse than having dry lips to apply lipstick on. My tip with this is to put it on and leave to settle in for a few minutes before applying lipstick. It holds the lipstick so well and gives your lips a healthy texture.

This product works better than lip liner for stopping my Russian Red Mac lipstick from bleeding into lines. It also helps to keep lipstick on for a few more hours, and stops my all day wear matte Mac lipsticks from drying out and clumping on my lips. The setback for me is that the product runs out too quickly for the price. That being said, I do love this product and it will continue to be part of my daily routine.

Excellent product. I was always thinking that many of the priming products are just another step that can be easily skipped for it doesn't really make a big difference. I didn't have high expectations for this primer and yet decided to give it a try.
It comes in a screw tube which is easy to use. The product is smooth and glide on easily. It sinks in your lips making them feel very smooth. Also feels tiny bit tacky. Guess the formulation is as such so that your lip product that goes on top stays on better and doesn't smear. The primer somewhat reveals the colour of your product better as well.
Will definitely repurchase since it is a nice feel and excellent effect. Has a slight vanilla smell when you try and smell directly from the packaging. When applied the smell is not detected.
