I was sent 4 samples of this product to test as a Bzz Agent, where from time to time I have been sent products to test and give my opinion on, as well as sharing coupons or samples with others. I had been looking for a long lasting lip color, so I was very interested in trying this product. Sadly, it did not meet my expectations.
I applied the lip color as directed, and left it on at least 3 minutes as directed, for it to dry. Just using the lip color by itself left my lips feeling very dry, uncomfortable. Then you add the lip balm over the lip color, which then does make your lips feel moisturized, but sadly the lip balm does not stay on your lips for long.
What you are left with is the lip color, and very dry feeling lips. If you are going to have to keep applying the lip balm, you might as well just have to keep applying lipstick, or whatever it is you put on your lips.
Also, when the lip color starts to come off, it comes off in spots, so it leaves your lips looking wierd anyway.
You will also need a makeup remover product to remove all of the remaining lip color. It does NOT wash off easily, with say soap and water.
Sadly, this product was not for me, so I will keep on with my search for a long wearing lip stick or lip color.
I think Maybelline was on the right track when they made this product, but to me, it still has a serious flaw.
