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.

This lipstick ain't go no where! It glides ride on and quickly sets to a matte. I like to blot one time after putting on. And I literally did not have to touch up not one time. Not even after lunch or me constantly licking or biting my lips. I love this lipstick.
Sticky & Clumpy
Lips00 from Washington
I wanted to like this but it doesn't matter what you do with this lip product, it's totally thick and gummy on your lips and immediately separates, peels, and clumps.
No thank you
Jaxx from Houston
The stay power of this stuff is not at all flattering or hydrating. It is impossible to remove. It somehow makes entire face look so bad. I absolute hate this liquid to matte. I would rather spend a little more for better quality stuff that doesn't just lay so weird on my lips. Formula is not fun or simple to apply. The texture is just all off. Hate, hate, hate!
Lasts all day!
Miranda from Calhoun, GA
This product is just as described. It goes on well and stayed on all day and night. I didn't have much transfer once it dried, and I was able to eat and drink without losing all of my color. It was a bit sticky for the first little bit, but one it dried and soaked in I was good to go and it didn't feel like I was wearing anything.
Nice colors, stays put (if you use a thin layer!)
jen from MI
This is a very decent liquid lipstick. The range of colors available is really nice, and so far, I've discovered the color you see is what you get. If applied correctly, it stays put extremely well, and looks good (matte finish, of course). I find it to be a pretty comfortable liquid lipstick. With matte lips, there's only so much comfort you're going to have (lol), and, while your lips do feel matte, I didn't find it uncomfortable. In fact, I'll forget I have it on. It can be slightly sticky, but I feel it's very, very minimal. When you want to remove it, using oil or petroleum jelly gets all of it off.
I've read other reviews where people find this product to be thick, sticky, and falling off in clumps. This is true if you apply too much. The key is to apply ONE thin layer, and let it dry before pressing your lips together. If you do that, it's much more comfortable stays put, and looks a lot better. Of course, people will have their preferred formulas, but I feel like applying too much is user error. This is a nice liquid lipstick at a good price.
Best matte ever

Britt from Arkansas
Pretty color but so sticky and left clumps all over my lips and was rubbing off before I even got to work. Will be going in the trash.
You can remove it with oil people
AFElena from Illinois
I love this lipstick. It is completely maskproof. Minus one star for stickiness, bc it does stay sticky for some reason (no idea why). My sister wore this in 90 degree heat for hours with a mask on, while frequently removing it to drink water to stay hydrated. This lipstick DID. NOT. BUDGE. It really does what it says. She got it off by rubbing avacado oil on her lips for a few seconds and wiping it off with a cotton pad. It was easy. No makeup on the planet is oil-proof. If you can't use oil, petroleum jelly works too. I feel bad for everyone who messed up their lips trying to get this off but a simple Google search could have fixed that. I'm calling that user error. All in all a great product, I will be buying several more shades.
Awful. Save your money.
Kelly from MI
I got into matte liquid lipsticks from another brand, and wanted to try this because it comes in a lot of colors and the ingredients were similar. RUN AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. I don't know why it has so many good reviews. It's thick, sticky, and comes off in chunks near the corners of your mouth and just overall feels horrible on the lips.
It does some in a lot of cool colors, and if you needed it for photography purposes, then maybe, but it is NOT comfortable or wearable.
Great for the price
Britt A from Myrtle Beach SC
I typically use lipstick from Kat Von D, Stilla, Mac, etc. but I decided to give this line a try due to friendly price and good reviews. I tried the color 'Lover' today and was impressed! I was able to wear this lipstick for 12 solid hours while having drinks, going out to eat, and kissing my better half (lol). A bit sticky, but helps moisturize lips, and somehow stays put. Trying more colors!
One of the better cheaper mattes
CR from WI
This is probably the most long lasting liquid lipstick there is, perhaps too much. It is difficult to remove, so I would not wear it everyday our of fear of damaging my lips. Even though it has a tacky feeling and doesn't feel like it fully dries, it doesn't flake or smudge. Not perfect, but does outperform some higher-end brands, making it an excellent value.
awesome product but..
awesome from new york
i still give this a 5 stars because my minor complaint has nothing to do with the companies item. the products are amazing and some of my favorite lipsticks, BUT be careful with the try on feature, it wasn't that accurate so the colors i expected weren't exactly what i got but they're still amazing and they stay on very long.
Bummed that this one didn't work well
Moony from Austin, TX
I wanted to love this! 😭 Would have been great to have an inexpensive liquid lipstick option with so many colors. HOWEVER. I tried half a dozen different times, with different methods... even when I barely applied the thinnest amount with a lip brush, and let it dry for five minutes before my lips touched together, the stickiness never went away for me at any point throughout the day until I took it off*. It stopped sticking when I applied a light powder on top, but as soon as my lips were moistened again, back the stickiness came. (I tried both Revolutionary and Individualist shades.) If the stickiness doesn't bother you then this stuff may work, but for me this was a dealbreaker.
*TIP for some reviewers: this (and any lip color) is super easy to remove with coconut oil, even if it seems it has "tattooed" you. Rub a generous amount of the oil onto your lips for several seconds and then wipe the color off, voila.
Colors aren't accurate
BiA from Tx
I have the shade Revolutionary and it's actually more of a mid tone cool color. It's really close to the shade ringleader shown in the photo. I think Revolutionary would look good on you if you have a cool undertone.
Lives Up To The Hype!!
Madi Mac from Kansas City, MO
I bought the shade Ringleader and it's a lovely shade! It goes on so well! I topped it with the essence shine shine shine wet look clear gloss and it looked stunning! Personally, I have had a great experience with this product and I plan on purchasing more shades when I can! I love it!!
vera from maine
i usually don't write negative reviews but i'm really lost on why people rave about this... it's the worst lipstick i've ever tried. the texture is disgusting and feels nasty on my lips and oddly sticky even when dried. it applies patchy and it's impossible to go over with another layer for some reason. it looks disgusting on the lips and doesn't even stay on. it seems to stay on when you try and wash it off but it doesn't stand up to a meal at all. i feel like these reviews are paid because this is actually terrible
Fave liquid lipstick EVER!!!
ana < 3 from Cali
This. product. is. amazing. seriously!!! i got it in the shade seductress and it suits my fair skin so well. stays on all day and is just so pretty. will be purchasing more colors ASAP! highly recommend :)
Horrible to try to get off
herself from MI
I purchased this in the Self-Starter color which ended up looking more orange out of the tube than it was represented as. On my cool, fair skin, it was not good. Trying to get off was awful. Eventually got all of it off after using some soap and then Chapstick. So it's great if you find the perfect shade, but if it's not, be prepared to work to remove it.
Love this lipstick
Sherry1 from Elkin N.C.
It stays put and I'm loving this product will be buying more colors. Plus there is a lot of colors to choose from.
Lena from Texas
This product is seriously amazing! I decided to purchase this lipstick after seeing the 18k reviews with 4 and a half stars.
Best decision I made! It really does last. I wore this lipstick from 10am until 12 midnight and the only place it wore down was on the inside of my lip. I ate 3 meals with this on. One of my meals being a yummy greasy burger, and I this lipstick did not move! I also had a mask on at work for 8 hours, this lipstick stayed on through this too!
The best way to remove it is to apply the same lipstick on in small sections and remove it immediately with a wipe. Don't rub your lips together, just swipe the color on and wipe off. I promise, this works!
I highly recommend this product.
BC from Kingsport, Tennessee
Color stays on lips without touching up for several hours.
Just an edit!! (Still love this product)
TheBeliever from USA
USE BABY OIL TO REMOVE THE LIPSTICK!
I'm reading a lot of complaints on not being able to remove the lipstick use baby oil I put it on cotton scrubbed it a bit comes right off
So is this alien technology!?!?!?
TheBeliever from USA
Somebody wrote a negative review on how this stuff does not come off they are not kidding I woke up this morning after falling asleep with it on and it look like I just applied it. I don't know why you would complain about long lasting lip wear I love this I have been telling all my friends to buy it and I have been purchasing more in multiple colors. This stuff is the truth! The color doesn't even fade! it's to the point I don't even bring the tube with me when I go out I put it on at home and then leave it there cause I'm not gonna need it. All you other lip stick makers need to step up their game!
I would most definitely buy this product again
Hibah from Chicago IL
It's unbelievable how long this lipstick stays on your lips. I put it on in the morning then later in the day went to the dentist then had some lunch and at 12 AM is when I washed my face along with the lipstick it comes off easy but it stays on for a very long time this product does not lie when it says super stay I highly recommend each shade and this product
this does NOT come off
Kristina from New York, NY
typically when i shower, all of my makeup comes off; however, this sucker would not leave my lips. i scrubbed with all kinds of soap and NADA. once i had given up, i got out and used makeup remover and a reusable cotton pad. i literally scrubbed a layer of skin off trying to get this stuff off. i now have two scabs under my mouth because of this. DO NOT BUY. friends of mine also had similar experiences. pretty colors, but not worth it.
