I’ve come across so many reviews of this product, mostly negative. This must be due to poor marketing. I say this because it was advertised as a high shine, long wearing lip lacquer. The truth is it’s got minimal shine, a light stain of pigment and it comes right off after eating or drinking. In all honestly I like this product. My reasons being I am a sucker for a light lip color since Monday- Friday I stay far from lipsticks or any heavy pigment on my lips. This lacquer is more like a gloss. It goes on watery and finishes tacky, not too sticky like the MAC Lip Glass. It does leave behind a heavy feeling on the lips but I’m not bothered by it. The color I purchased is called Stubborn Plum. It’s a beautiful shade in the package and looks similar to the MAC Up the Amp Lipstick. However the color goes on so light it’s a very faint stain on my lips. I am able to build up the color but not very much. I do recommend this product to those who are interested in the slightest tint on the lips and don’t mind the heavy and tacky feeling. For the rest of you I would steer clear.
