I received a deluxe sample of the shade 01 Always Red with my most recent Sephora order.
I'm pretty new to the world of liquid lipsticks. The only other brand that I've tried is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, whose formula and ultimate result is far different from this. The Kat Von D is the only one I have to compare it to, though, so please bear with me.
The formula on this is quite liquidy and hard to control. I found it much more difficult to apply with precision than I did the Kat Von D. Part of that could have been due to the very small wand -- as I said, this is a sample -- but the product itself was really slipping around before it dried down. Having said that, the dry time was not as fast as the Kat Von D, which gave me more time to fiddle with it.
Once the colour dried down, it was completely dry, and looked and felt like more of a matte as opposed to a cream. However, the opacity wasn't as strong after one coat as the Kat Von D. I had to apply a second layer, after which I did find that it was a bit tacky and less matte. It could be that two layers is the norm with this formula, and as it's not marketed as matte, this didn't bother me.
What did bother me was the fact that the edges didn't stay immaculate or smooth. They started to get smudgy within an hour of application, and it was difficult to fix them. I don't feel that this would have happened with one layer, because it was dry. Going in with the second layer is what seemed to make the product prone to moving around. Even my non-liquid lipsticks can go longer without messing up on me, so it was a disappointment on that front.
I did enjoy the vanilla scent of the product as well as how comfortable it felt on the lips. The colour was also very pretty. I'm willing to fool around with the formula a bit to see if I can get it even with one layer instead of two. It does show promise.
This is a great product that lasts hours as long as you don't apply gloss over top or eat greasy foods. This is more of a liquid lipstick than a stain, and the colour selection is excellent! I'm not often brand/product loyal, but this is something I will buy over and over again.
I was surprised by this product. I thought it would be one of those product that is mediocre. However, the quality of this product was nothing of what I was expecting.
The pigment is on point. The color is vibrant and rich. *I bought Polished Purple*
The lasting effect is wonderful; it doesn't just come off.
The scent is mild; its not bad.
If you want something pigmented and affordable, definitely give this a try.
LOVE them!! Such a underrated product! Have been using them for almost a year and love most of the colours, especially 'always red' (classic red) and 'marvelous mauve' (everyday mauve). The formula is amazing! Last a long time, non-transfer, very pigmented, dry matte, comfortable on the lips, and easy to apply. Everytime I wear it, people have stopped and asked what's on my lips. Got several friends hooked on them and I'm sure if you give them a try, you will love them as much as I do.
As of right now, this is my favourite lip product and I have been using it for several months. The color stays on for hours and doesn't fade. When dry, you can drink, eat, kiss, and it won't come off. I used to work as a server where I had to do a lot of talking and this stain would usually last the entire shift, which is absolutely amazing for anyone with a hectic schedule who can't afford to keep checking or reapplying makeup. It comes in a variety of colours so that everyone should be able to find something they like.
This is my new holy grail every day lip color. I bought Marelous Mauve, and the stain (the color is slightly darker when initially applied) is an exact match to the pink color inside of my lips. The color goes on smoothly and creamy (just as the product promises) and stays on really well. I was able to eat, drink, kiss the baby, and even though a little bit of the inital color came off, the stain didn't budge and went from looking like I had lipstick on to a really nice healthy tint. Love love love it! I'm going to have to go back and try some other colors!
I picked up the shade 13 Marvelous Mauve which is what I think, a perfect dupe for Kat Von D's Lolita. It applies beautifully and is my daily go to colour. It doesn't dry out my lips and on me, lasts several hours. Its an incredibly flattering shade and I think out of all the things I've ever bought from Sephora, this has been my favourite purchase.
THESE LIP STAINS ARE INCREDIBLE!these are a must have!!The colors are so beautiful!They apply smooth and not patchy..The pigment is very strong ..a little goes a long way...this is it! no comments!
I have 06 Pink Souffle and 13 Marvelous Mauve!! Love them all! They are super comfortable on the lips, and are long lasting. I don't feel like they leave my lips too dry like some other liquid lips do.
I own most of these lip stains and I can't get enough. The wear on these is amazing I can go all day wearing a dark color and not have to check my lips to make sure it stayed in the lines and that it's still on.
