These are okay liquid lipsticks. The lasting power is a few hours, at least through having a few drinks. This did dry my lips out and by the end of the night the color looked very cracked. It is a nice color, however I wish there wasn't a sheen or frost to it. It is sticky when you first apply it, but after a few minutes it dries down. It's not quite as opaque as I'd hoped. There is some streakyness when you apply so it takes a couple layers to make the color even. I would suggest a lip liner with this color. That would make applying a lot easier and cleaner. It doesn't smear or feather which I really like. Overall, it is an okay liquid lipstick.

i love the the color, its so close to natural lip shade. theres not too much shimmer, which i like. it stays on for a really long time, somewhat sticky and a bit dry, but lip balm underneath takes care of it for me

So dissapointed in this product. It goes on OK, but immediately dries lips out. They started out fine, and ended up cracked and lined. Worse than any lipstick or stain I've ever tried. Will not repurchase.
Nice colour, though...

This color is absolutely gorgeous on, however his dries the heck out of my lips and I don't like the dry finish. Even with balm or moisturizing gloss, it's just zaps the moisture from my lips.

I love this lipstick! This shade is a cool toned, plummy mauve with slight shimmer (though not frosty). I think the main reason I love it is because I blend it with my HG lipliner (Rimmel 1000 kisses in coffee bean), and the resulting shade is a deep, neutral to cool toned berry-nude that is flattering, subtle, office appropriate, and lasts all day. I put it on in the morning, have a cup of coffee, eat lunch, and drink from a water bottle all day and it does.not.budge. I don't think I would like it on its own without liner, as it is barely deeper than the natural shade of my lips. I think that's where a lot of the hate comes from - ladies who neglect to use this with lipliner, which imo is required in order to define the lip and look natural.

I didn't prefer this lipstick as much. I have very dry lips and the colorstay formula for some reason just tends to dry out my lips even more (even when I put chapstick on first and then apply this lipstick). The color of the lipstick itself is very matte, which I do like. However, I just cannot wear this lipstick since it dries out my lips so much. If you tend to have dry/chapped lips, I would not recommend this product.

This is the second Revlon Liquid Lipstick I've purchased. It's definitely pink, but a much more autumn than spring pink. This is my new daily colour, with chapstick on top.

How I put it on to make it last is this:

1) Buff your lips a bit. I rub mine gently on a towel, just to remove any moisture and flaky skin.
2) Apply a SMALL amount to the middle of your bottom lip, and use your finger to smudge it all over. There shouldn't be any extra product. If I use too much, or apply it like a gloss, it will flake off and I'll get a bad ring around my lips.
3) Let it dry for a good 5 minutes. It'll feel tight and sticky, but just let it set.
4) After it's totally dry, put a good moisturizing lip balm on top.
5) Be careful with oily food. Oil will make the lipstick come off quicker.

This works for the same for a bright red Liquid Lipstick as well. If I want a more defined look, I'll put a real lipstick over this stain.

This color is to die for!! I have been searching and searching (and searching) for a color like this. I've tried so many lipsticks and this is the perfect pink with mauve undertones. In addition, I've been having problems with lipstick feathering on me and this one doesn't!! The lipstick also has great wear-time...it stays on for hours. The lipstick dries quickly but you do have enough time to work with it. I put it on and then put my lip liner on and it dries with the lipstick and stays on too. After about 3 minutes it is a little tacky and within 5 or so minutes it is dry. The first day I used it my lips felt dried out by the end of the day so I started putting a gloss or clear lip balm on once it dried and haven't had a problem with it since. It's perfect...I finally found what I was looking for so please don't discontinue it!!! :o)

GREAT color, first of all! Absolutley a MLBB for me. I am still trying to decide how much I like the formula though. I would absolutely repurchase because of how great the color is, but I think I just need to get used to the longwearing formula. It is not creamy, and almost feels like bare lips once it has dried.
The color is a soft pinky/mauve that is cool. It is more purplish in the tube than on my lips, but has a night shimmer highlight to make your lips extra pouty. Got to love that. Perfect color overall.
Will repurchase for sure!
