I wear a lot of "Long wearing" lip colors. This brand is my favorite. It doesn't chap my lips and it stays on for hours. The only discouraging things about this product is that they don't provide enough lip gloss (so I purchase a clear from the drug store and a much cheaper cost); and they change their colors frequently. Also, when at the MAC counters they RARELY, rarely, rarely, rarely!!! have all the colors available. So frustrating when you're looking for your color.

Tried this with a friend who needs a lipstick that won't smudge on her wedding day. The colours were amazingly vibrant. It is the consistency of paint which is a little strange but after its dry it gives the most beautiful matte look. After it dried, we wiped our lips on the back of our hands LIKE MAD and the colour did not smudge! Needless to say, it will be perfect for a romantic first kiss as husband and wife!

I got this lipgloss as a gift from my mother, because she swears by it. The color I got is called "Unchanging" which is a really pretty light pink that is not too noticeable and great for a simple everyday look. I really love it. It lasts for a really long time although I do agree that I notice that the gloss side does run out much quicker than the color side and I am really glad that they sell those individually so you don't have to buy a whole new thing. If you haven't put on chapstick beforehand it does feel extremely dry on your lips though.

I bought two different colours of this longwear lipgloss/lip colour and they were both lovely on me! This product is a colour based lip gloss and it promises that the colour lasts for a very very long time regardless of how many things your drink or eat. It definitely keeps its promise! If you are like me and tend to have darker lips, and you go for a light colour, you will not be disappointed. I put this on in the beginning of my day and it lasts the whole entire day, no reapplying needed (very rare but you can apply another time later in the day). I love it, it makes me feel like this is my natural lip colour because it stays and it has a bit of glossiness that you can apply over the colour for extra sexiness! It is two sided, one has the colour applier and the other is the gloss applier. This is Definately worth it!

I don't hate these, i don't love it but i barely, rarely use it. And on the occasion i actually use it, i wipe it off pretty quickly. Now, it would be wonderful if my lipstick can last all day, but with Pro Longwear, the tradeoff is uncomfortable dry-ish lips. When i wear this, I feel like the stuff on my lips are balling up and looking weird. I also find that the the gloss side is used up much faster (they do sell that part alone where you can attach) - but why not just include enough?. The pros though is that they have a wide range of colors. And i feel that if someone is blessed with super soft and moist lips, they can rock this no problem. Overall, i don't recommend this product for people with lips on the dryer side.

I adore MaxFactor products... and this lipstick reminds me why. Very nice texture, colour, resistant and not that drying. Too bad I can`t find MaxFactor in my city anymore and I only get my hands on it very rarely.

This is the first lip colour that I have used that stays on, even if I have eaten an entire meal. This lip colour's staying power is amazing.

This lip stick is applied in 2 stages. One end has the lip colour that acts more like a lip stain. The other end has a clear gloss that is applied over the lip colour (tip -> it works best when you allow the lip stain to dry before applying the gloss). Then you just re-apply the gloss as needed. The best part is the MAC will sell you the gloss portion separately when you run out of it before your lip colour (which you definately will).

With this lipcolour, no lip colour comes off on your drinking glasses and it looks great. I have never had so many compliments about a lipstick before! Definately a must-have for my beauty bag from now on.

My friend recommended this lipstick/lip gloss to me because she was impressed with how the color lasted the entire day and didn't wear off. MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolor consists of two viles - one end contains a colored lipgloss and the other end contains a clear gloss (or shimmery gloss depending on which color you buy).

I am so impressed with this product! The color lasts all day and does not come off when you eat or drink (no more embarrassing situations where your lipstick stays on the water glass). =) They are pricy however.

I find it worth the price because I don't have to worry about reapplying my lip color throughout the day. I am still going through my one tube of Pro Longwear Lipcolor where I would be well into my second tube of lipstick/gloss by now. And also, if I want to add shine, I can just gloss my lips with the clear gloss.

The only negative is that the formula tends to dry out my lips so i have to keep moisturizing them. But for me it's a small price to pay for lip color that lasts the whole day and doesn't come off . This product is excellent!
