These lipsticks are absolutely gorgeous right after application. The fat, fluffy doe foot applicator has a hole in the middle, which ensures that a good amount of product gets picked up, but somehow this is just the right amount I need for my lips. The initial creme finish sets as a lip stain. The product claims super stay of 10 hours, but this is not what I have experienced. Most of the product was off of my lips within 2 hours when I had lunch as well. Maybe claiming 5 hours stay would have been a little bit more accurate. I love the shades they have available and the consistency of these lip glosses, and would therefore keep wearing them. However, I wouldn’t recommend them for their staying power.
