Most Helpful Positive Review could be slightly perfected but i will still buy
I received both pioneer and lover for free to review from influenster and this is what I have to say about them..
Packaging: sleek and simple , love the wand you can be precise and also the hole in the center packs extra for main filling. The wand gives you good control.
The color of PIONEER is like that of a red rose to me and i love that i can see the violet undertones.. i will definitely be purchasing patriot again and some of the more deeper shades.
LOVER is subtle and pretty , it has a nice color and isn't too bright or too dark for my skin type, good pink.
Both LOVER AND PIONEER have a matte finish as advertised.
Advise: You only need to apply once, i don't recommend applying twice
the texture is a little sticky but not so much that i can't handle it.
I have ate burgers with these lipsticks and they hold up great.
only time i noticed a good difference is when i ate an overly greasy pizza
The lippies are removed with oil, i personally choose coconut oil and it does it's job, i would say don't skimp out on your oil, use a good amount and removing it shouldn't be a problem.
Cons/ It could be a tiny bit less tacky and i'm sure if they had more of a selection of shades they would be even more popular.
I am excited to try more of the deeper shades soon :)
Most Helpful Critical Review Thanks for the unwanted tattoo Matte ink
I brought 2 of these today and the colors are amazing, but this product is a nightmare. It stain my lip. It took was to much make up remove to get off. If it's gonna take more than 10minutes to take off I rather buy a lipstick I have to reapply every hour. Don't wanna worry about the product being stuck on my lips.

I have spent a small fortune on so many different brands of lip color looking for one that stays on. Finally I feel like I have found the holy grail with this! It literally stays on all day. It's mask proof too. But I have had to take make up remover at night to scrub it off.

I think when I find the right color I will love it
Not so great
Ash from Mcallen
I like how this lipstick looks when you apply it in the beginning, but after a few hours it starts to crack and it's so hard to take off. I wouldn't buy it again.
It really is "super stay"
Amber from Ocean City, Maryland
My favorite lipstick ever! When they say "super stay" they mean it! This stuff does not move. Love the color selection as well.
Love these colors they are long lasting.
Ridzi from Sacramento
Love these colors they are long lasting. I put it on one. Let it dry on lips before you allow you talk or eat.

i love it, if youre worried about it coming off, dont worry. it wont come off i scrubbed for 20 mins and there were still remains.
I love this lipstick!
Concrete Princess from Albuquerque, NM
The color pops! I saw Nora MacInerny wearing it and she mentioned on her podcast the brand and color. It is the first bright color I can wear and not feel out of place. It does last all night, even if drinking and eating. It may be a bit hard to remove with just soap and water, but I used vaseline and it came off easy! I LOVE this lipstick!
xixi from san diego, ca
beautiful color!! i got pioneer and it's a beautiful red. application is super easy, even for my first liquid lipstick. dries matte.
it's scented?? unexpected and not really a huge fan. it also feels really sticky during application. it's also not as transferproof and definitely does not last 16 hrs. it smudges pretty badly under a mask. it also felt kind of drying on my lips.
This stuff is WILD
Lacey from Port Orange, FL
Honestly I did not have much faith in a "drugstore" brand lipstick but man, when I tell you that this stuff did not budge - I put it on at 2:30 in the afternoon and it survived multiple drinks, dinner, a mosh pit, late night taco bell and was still perfect when I woke up the next morning. 10/10 would recommend. The color is gorgeous too
Not that long of a stay
Freckled from Frederick, MD
I bought this to compare to the long lasting lip color that comes with a 2 step lip gloss only to be disappointed. Color is vibrant but only lasts about 6 hours with eating and drinking. Also the applicator is a bit strange, be careful when removing it from the tube.
Super stay doesn't stay
Ash from Savannah
I only made the purchase due to the but 2 get 1 free deal. The color is nice and I liked the idea of a matte lip color that stayed through everything. I had to be careful, as it came off on my teeth multiple times and a couple hours after I first applied, it came off on the very first drink I had. The lip crayons I have did stay, but this liquid did not. I'm on the fence about returning it.
Donna from Midwest
I have used this since they came out with it. I have tried other brands but they do not stay on like this one!!! The great neutral colors are the extra bonus!
FINALLY A BLACK THAT STAYS
Ta7lor from Elkhart, IN
I have bought nearly every brand of black lipstick and this one is by far the best!!!
The name fits.
Nechama from TX
It definitely stays, all day. However… it's awfully drying. Maybe I'm just not a matte lipstick person, but it makes my lips incredibly dull and flat looking. It also takes an incredible amount of scrubbing for it to come off at the end of the day, leaving my lips pretty irritated. I also how the shade I bought looks on me but that might just be a me problem.
BahamaLlama from Georgia
WENT OUT ON THE TOWN WEARING THIS AND GOT CAUGHT IN A HURRICANE. MAKEUP WAS ON FOR 10 HOURS. CHUGGED SEVERAL COFFEES DURING THAT TIME. MY HAIR HAD BEEN WHIPPED EVERY DIRECTION ACROSS MY FACE AND ID BEEN HEAVILY RAINED ON. GOT HOME TO FIND THAT ALL MAKEUP HAD BEEN MESSED UP EXCEPT FOR THIS LIPSTICK. IT WAS THE EXACT SAME AS IT WAS PRE-HURRICANE.
10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND FOR YOUR DAY TO DAY AS WELL AS SEVERE WEATHER MAKEUP NEEDS.
Always getting compliments with this sex-proof lipstick!
Pamela the Mermaid from Las Vegas, NV
It's the only lipstick I use! Yes, you have to make sure it fully dries (about 15 minutes before you drink/eat/kiss/blot your lips). And yes, you will have to use eye makeup remover to remove the color at the end of the evening (or the next hungover morning), but it's totally worth the staying power! Yes, your lips will NOT SHINE afterwards, and adding gloss will kill the staying power so get ready for matte lips, but you'll get so many compliments you won't care. You MUST be careful when applying it as it stains instantly, but scrape the extra liquid off and use the tip to line your lips before filling them in and you should be fine. I live in the desert in Las Vegas and spend a lot of time in the water in summer. This lipstick stays on under water, after drinking for many hours, after eating a lot of food, after sucking on a...lollipop. This lipstick DOES come off when doing these things (my straws always have stains), but it's negligible and the color stays on your lips for hours afterwards. Lubricant acts just like eye makeup remover with this lipstick, so be weary of using flavored lubes if you want this lipstick to stay on during/after bedroom fun.
Great staying power
Dee from Delaware
I would like to use it for events but I can't wear this color.
SuperStay, my a##
Laura from Riverton, Utah
This doesn't last long at ALL. It bled all over my face, is very sticky and is difficult to put on.
My Favorite Liquid Lipstick
VLNTN from USA
This is my go-to lipstick. It's sticky when you first put it on, but once it dries matte it's perfect. Literally lasts all day. I can eat/drink anything without having to reapply.
It has very little to no transfer. My s/o hates it when I have any other lipstick on because they transfer, but this one doesn't, so it's perfect!
SaraW38 from Charlotte, NC
I don't understand the negative reviews who say it stains their lips or it's hard to take off. DUH. It's called SUPERSTAY. This is the first lipstick I found that actually stays all day and it's AMAZING! I have 3 colors and I'm buying more soon!
clemons from Texas
I wanted to love this but it's just not working out. It stays tacky, even when I put on a thin layer, which means it's a tad sheer and I like my lipstick opaque. It transfers. It got on my teeth. I never had this issue with Lime Crime or Nyx. I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my black Lime Crime but this is not it. And Nyx Shine Loud Vegan High Shine Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick doesn't make a black.
Amazing! Have tried expensive- will buy more!
Lovethisone from Illinois
I was a little leery of buying this because of the price as I usually buy high namebrand brands… Someone told me about this brand so I thought I would give it a try… Seriously, this stuff well last hours upon hours. It was a little bit too bright for me so I just added some white foundation and took it up and it's a perfect beautiful color
This Is The One
PattyCakes from Wisconsin
I was back and forth between buying this one and buying the nyx version. I ended up buying both and this one was definitely the way to go. I have been using liquid lipstick products for years with my go to brands being Tarte and KVD
This liquid lipstick has an amazing brush design and it does not move once it's on. At times it gets that built up feeling where it feels like it's probably smudging but every time I check it does not. It doesn't flake off onto your teeth either which is huge for lipsticks with dark and intense colors.
Forewarning, when I say it doesn't budge, I mean that you will be waking up with it on your lips. I love it but it's incredibly difficult to remove, even with lipstick remover. However, because it stays put all day and night, and that this color black is the most pigmented I've seen, I'm giving it 5 stars.
Ash from Louisiana
The only lipstick I've found that actually lasts through a meal. But beware! You must exfoliate and moisturize your lips before wearing this, and you will need a makeup remover to get it off!! That's the case for a lot of long wearing liquid lipsticks like this one. They can be drying but that's the trade off for long wear.
It definitely stays!!!
Courtney from San Diego
I've been wearing pioneer as my staple red for years and I love the shade and the wear time. It's super pigmented, not at all streaky, and a very pretty blue toned red. I will say you need to apply a THIN coat of this stuff. If you use to much and you're someone like me who hates the feel of a liquid lip and rubs their lips together a lot, it'll flake right off in what feels like chunks. One coat is enough, stop there. It's also a very sticky formula, but I find that to be pretty typical of most long wear formulas.
Pros: gorgeous shade, insanely long wearing with minimal need for touch ups, nice applicator
Cons: sticky formula, need to be cautious of how much you use when applying
