This is legitimately the most long lasting lip product I've ever tried. Once you put it on, it does not budge until it's removed with a proper makeup remover. I'm talking about the Clio Virgin Kiss Lipnicure. It's marketed as a manicure for the lips hence the name "Lipnicure". This product claims to be 'specially developed to provide extreme long-lasting effect and high intensity colors for a flawless finish with a single touch upon lips'.
First off, the product description is completely spot-on. It is highly pigmented and opaque with just one swipe on the lips and lasts all day long. The colour that I have to show is 5 Revenge Pink, a very vivid pink shade which is quite similar to MAC Speak Louder lipstick except even brighter.
Here's how it looks like on the lips.
The finish of this product is incredibly matte which contributes to it being super long lasting however, it also means that the formula is rather drying on the lips. If you apply this on dry or chapped lips, it would sink into the lines and look horrible so I always apply a thicker layer of lip balm before using it. It comes with a curved doe-foot applicator which makes the application process a bit easier however you have to be very careful when applying because it also dries really quickly. And once it dries, it's not going anywhere.
With that being said, it is completely smudge proof and does not transfer. It doesn't come off on your hands if you touch your lips and it also doesn't come off when you eat or drink. However, it does fade a bit if you eat any oily food.
Also, I wouldn't recommend anyone applying more than one coat of this product. I've tried before and it ended up looking really dry and thick, and feeling very heavy on the lips. One coat is all you really need! There is also a 'lipnicure sealer' available to make the product last EVEN longer but I didn't get it because the product itself is already so long wearing. There is also a lipnicure remover specially for removing the product, but I find that using any oil based makeup remover would do the job just fine.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone! I do have to say that you have to make sure that your lips are smooth and moisturized before applying this or else it would be a nightmare. There are many other beautiful colours in the range but I don't think all of them are available at Guardian -which is where I picked mine up.
Thanks for reading!
Are there any other long lasting lip products that you recommend?
