I'm 73 and have never worn any makeup other than lipstick, but I've always hated the fact that it came off on everything and stuck to my long fine hair, soon leaving me bare again. This, in pink, goes on so easily and does not come off even on a wineglass or napkin when I'm dining out, but I always have soft, pretty pink lips, just what I wanted. It is pricey, but I find it lasts a long time because of the staining properties.
I had been looking for a real lip stain that did not wear off when I ate a meal. Those who complained that it didn't last, I believe, wanted a full-color lipstick, not a stain. This is exactly what you say it is, a stain that leaves a nice, long-lasting tint. I am amazed at its lasting property, I like its moist feeling, and I found that it doesn't leave embarrassing marks on cloth napkins. I love it, and I will order more so I have it in both shades.
I bought this after purchasing an expensive Lip Stain from a national competitor.This is so much better!!! I love the new "peach" color!!! It is awesome! I carry it and use it as a wonderful balm and lip stick! I will never be without the"Peach"~ It is a great buy!!!
I have long looked at this product and wanted it...did not feel I needed to indulge, but recvd. Xmas money and ordered. I am 75 and gray...read reviews and did not know what to really expect. I am trying to wear lighter colored lipstick. This turned a very light as I would describe raspberry color. Never thought about a raspberry...I very much like it. Gave me a little more color I felt was needed. It is as in reviews very small for a $25 price. So I will probably wear my cheap lipstick daily and the stain when going out.
I had qualms about ordering this because I remember Tangee lipstick which was also supposed to adjust to skin tone. It turned a hideous bright color on me. Well, this is perfect. It matches my natural lip color - just a bit darker, and on my cheeks also blends in to look "healthy". That's good because I have auburn hair and very pale skin and need just a little color to avoid looking sickly. It's great having one "stain" that does it all.
This is a great product! It adds a bit of color, is easy to apply without a mirror, & adds a soft glow to my lips. I wear it alone and over other lipsticks to add a glossy look. I have used it for about a year now & this is my second order. It is small enough that I can slip it into my jeans pocket for quick use when on the run. I especially love it when on vacation or shopping trips. Doesn't need reapplying frequently.
I usually do not purchase makeup items on the internet because of my sensitive skin. But I was very impressed when I purchased and tried this product. My lips retain more moisture, I love the color, and I have gotten a lot of compliments from others!! I will definitely purchase this again in the future.
