Most Helpful Positive Review Absolutely love it
Love the color of it. If you let it dry and then add the clear coat it works just fine. The applicator is perfect for me I actually found it easy to use. Make sure you don't have chapped lips always moisturize first.
Most Helpful Critical Review Patchy, Sticky, Bad
This is honestly the worst lip product I've ever used. For reference, I purchased the shade Self-Taught Millionaire.
The applicator is huge so it's difficult to get a precise line, which is aggravating because the first coat applies so sheer and yet somehow also patchy that you definitely need to layer up just to get an even color. You don't ever get even coverage, btw, it's just impossible.
Once applied, it takes forever to dry and you cannot close your mouth until it's completely dry or else the product will stick to itself and peel off like latex paint. It absolutely will not stick to the inner lip, either. It never dries down to a point where you could press your lips together without getting the paint peeling effect. Even when the product feels dry if you pat with your fingers, it's still tacky enough to stick to itself and ruin your finish if your lips touch.
It's very uncomfortable to wear until the gloss is applied, and I made sure my lips were well moisturized before trying this out. The gloss also makes it look way better...even though you can still see how uneven the color is. The gloss is great, actually, and I would purchase it alone if that were an option. It's light and not goopy or sticky in any way and really smooths the appearance of the lips. The gloss also barely transfers or moves at all, even when eating and drinking. Honestly, this gloss is fantastic.
Overall there's no way I would repurchase this formula and the one I have is going back ASAP.

I haven't used gloss since I was a little kid. This is also my first dark lipstick and both parts were so pretty
I was expecting a little more, but it was still amazing.
Kay from Madison Wisconsin
This was trending on TikTok and when I saw zero transfer I became immediately intrigued. When I went to Ulta to try to add it to my cart all the shades were sold out besides like a blue one that I didn't want to get. I ended up getting a raspberry shade after a while of waiting and honestly I was expecting zero transfer. I applied a liquid lipstick on clean lips, waited 90 seconds, and then added the gloss.I was disappointed to see if there was a very slight transfer just a little bit of crumbling immediately. and it does not remove easily but overall this is very pretty and I will be wearing this. it's also mask proof.

I stopped wearing lipstick at the beginning of the pandemic because it would just get all over my mask and face, even the matte ones that dry down completely. I was excited to try this and it really lives up to the hype. I went the whole day without touching it up, ate two meals and wore a mask out and it still looked good at the end of the day. No smudges or transfer at all! The only two cons are the colors don't really match the tube or the photos on the Ulta website and it is harder to take off.
It's a no for me!
Anne from Houston, Texas
This product is over hyped and expensive. It's very flaky and doesn't last long. The maybelline super stay matte ink lasts way longer and is cheaper. I definitely don't recommend save your money.
Not worth the trend
nyc from Baltimore
I wanted to love this because of the hype around it but it was so mediocre! It fell off my inner lip so easily and felt dusty after 20 minutes. Hard pass.
Not mask proof!
Liz from New Mexico
I honestly need to stop believing these tiktokers when they recommend a product (they get it free for PR). Color went all over my mask and left me looking like a clown with the color over my lip and in my chin. I used the bright red color and it's a beautiful color, hence the 3 stars, but it's an awful product of you wanted to wear it under your mask.
Don't buy into the hype
coucou from Pennsylvania
Purchased this after seeing glowing reviews. It was beautiful going on, and it is transfer proof, but after about 30 minutes it started flaking away, and what was left had a gritty feeling.
WORST PRODUCT EVER!
ENNA from SUNSHINE STATE
This is one of the worst products I've ever used! In less than 15 minutes this product breaks apart and looks like dried up lipstick. I honestly don't know how anyone could like this. If you want a product that works get the Chanel duo lip. It stays on much longer and even when it wears down it doesn't make your lips look gross like this one. It also has a much nicer applicator. Yes I know it's expensive but sometimes you get what you pay for.
Kolastarr from Columbus Ohio
I wore this to work and it didn't get on my mask. I ate my lunch and I saw no trace of my lipstick on it. I will definitely buy more.
Pretty for about 5 minutes
Amber from Colorado
Ends up cracking and getting flaky shortly after applying. It's way too drying!
Diana from Dalton,GA
Great product! The color I got was crazy hot pink but will be trying other colors.
Anonymous from Michigan
The ugliest color ever on fair skin. Not to mention that the package color doesn't match the lipstick at all. The lipstick itself gets sticky without the gloss and starts to flake off after a while. I don't recommend this lipstick whatsoever.
This did not stay put for me
Brittany from North Carolina
Wore off and started looking dry and cracked around my mouth. Looked awful.
shalee from ca
this is a horrible product. it cracked on my lips immediately after application, then it pulled up n flaked off. texture stayed sticky, matte side does not dry down. disappointed, returning it tomorrow
Good but dry
Skye from Bolibgbrook, IL
I had applied it exactly how the directions said. But not even a minute after it started flaking. It didn't smudge but chunks were coming off. It took a lot to try to get it off too. But I'd buy it again in a different color.
Stephanie from Ohio
I got Goal Getter (cool tone berry) and Overnight Hero (cool tone mauve). I love them both.
TIP TO APPLY: Wipe off excess color from applicator and apply a THIN layer ; then apply the clear gloss all over lips. There's no stickiness or tackiness.
TIP TO REMOVE: Use an oil based makeup remover OR use The Original Makeup Eraser Cloth.
My lips looked freshly applied even after removing my face mask and my lips felt very comfortable.
The lipstick does come off easily when eating oily or greasy food but that's ok. I'll definitely be trying more colors.
I hope one day they make a cool-tone brick red shade.
not very opaque
brenna from missoula
i love this!! it really doesn't transfer but it needs a few layers because it's not very opaque. it is definitely a must buy though
Lasted all day
Blue Girl from Sacramento, CA
I bought this product because it's hardto find a blue lipstick that last all day and doesn't come off when you eat but this lipstick is perfect.
I will buy this again. Waiting for the other colors...
Mimi from Lexington
The great thing about this product is that it stays on and doesn't come off on your cups. Also it's easy to put on and the colors are vibrant.
Very drying to the lips
Tor from ABQ, NM
So I prepped my lips to give this stuff a fair chance because you know, TikTok... but anyway this lip has a beautiful application, but maybe 30mins into having this stuff on my lips felt like a desert that hadn't seen rain in years. For that reason alone It's a no for me sis.
Not worth it
Ange from Phoenix az
I bought it because of the tiktok hype i love the color global citizen it applies smoothly but it dries down so bad and it's hard to remove!!
Not Worth The Hype
Nely from TX
It's transfer proof for first 10mins after the gloss rubs off it becomes patchy, it transfers and it wears horribly.
Kat from Orlando
I work in healthcare working 10+ hour shifts. This product is amazing and truly does what it advertised! This did not flake off and did not smear I had coffee, breakfast, a mask on/off and water throughout the day.
Hillary from Alabama
I wanted to love this so bad. I saw how hyped it was on TikTok and decided to buy it. Got two shades from the NYX website since Ulta was sold out. I got Born to Hustle and another nudish shade. These were terrible. I followed the directions and it still started to flake. The formula separated pretty quickly after applying and the gloss lasted like 5 minutes before my lips began to dry out. As soon as I ate something it was coming off in huge flakes. I'd pass on this if I were you
Better Than I Expected
Steph from Cleveland, Ohio
I got the shades Overnight Hero and Goal Getter. I love both of these shades since I gravitate more towards cooler-tone lipsticks. Overnight Hero offers a more neutral mauve color look and Goal Getter offers a nice colorful berry lip look.
Both offer an attractive looking and feeling lip combined with the staying power that we crave especially after removing our face masks. I was impressed that there's no transfer and my lips still looked freshly applied.
The lipstick did come off after eating oil- based foods but that was expected.
TIP TO APPLY: Wipe off excess lip color from wand and apply a thin layer of color then finish by applying clear gloss all over lips. It's not sticky or tacky.
TIP FOR REMOVING: I alternate between using an oil based or bio-phase (shake to activate the two layers) makeup remover like Lancome or Neutrogena OR use The Original Makeup Eraser Cloth which works great!
This reminds me of the Senegence Lipsense Lipstick but is roughly half the cost and takes less time to apply.
I wish this lipstick came in a cooler-tone brick (darker) red color.
This is my new favorite lipstick. I see why they're regularly out of stock. I'm going to try some other colors to see what they're like.
