Rated 3.1 out of 5 stars
Absolutely love the color, stays all day, doesn't dry out my lips,(I also always use blistex lip conditioner before using any all day lipstick, inexpensive tip!!). However, I cannot stand the stick itself. Seemed to break fairly easily-at the base so its still in the tub but is weird to use- and I feel like I have little control in applying (and of course with a stain, if you don't get it on perfectly right first time, you might as well start all over) especially compared to the other all day stay lip product. Wish they had this color in that product... They used to have one similar, but discontinued it.
I decided to buy this because it was 50% off. I really wanted to love it but i wish i had listened to the reviews.
First, the color payoff was high and while Kiss Ass is really an awful name for a product color, especially when its something to apply to your lips, the color was very neutral and pretty. The packaging is lovely and luxurious.
Now the cons. Immediately, it felt so dry on the lips and on application. It was not super smooth to apply, and more than one swipe helps but layers too much pigment. On its own, the color is beautiful, but it makes my lips look so dry and pronounces every single line in my lips. However…i love the color. The way i found to make it work for me was to apply this lipstick lightly by dabbing it, going over it with a gloss or a balm, and then using a tissue to kiss off the excess to maintain some pigmentation while smoothing out lip texture.
I think you will love this if you love very matte lipsticks with high color payoff that is fairly budgeproof, but don't mind some texture (unless you have very smooth lips) with dryness on the stronger end of matte lipsticks. I do, however, believe there are better matte lipsticks out there.
This will also not work for you if you like to do a gradient lip technique. It is budge-proof on application. I wouldn't recommend this at full price and I won't buy this again for myself.

I love the texture and smell. Pigment is true to tone. It doesn't stay as long as I would like, but great for a temporary lip- great size to take with in a small bag to freshen up throughout the night.

Love the Matte Lip colors and the long lasting power.

I'm not sure if I just got a dud but it was so dry I broke it trying to put it on I put a slick chapstick on and is still very dry also showed up very deep and dark on my lips instead of the pretty orchid color it shows. Definite waste of my money.

I applied my makeup at 5:30am and it didnt budge all day. I disnt have to baby it and never reapplied it. Looked as good at the end of the day as it did when i first put it on.
I will say that it IS a little dry, and doesnt glide across your lios smoothly when you apply it but i dont really care if it LITERALLY stays all day.

The color is pretty but the texture os really dry and tugged at my lips when I applied it.

It was the worst product I ever had for lipstick and I'm very shocked that Stila even sells it. I've asked her for a refund and a prepaid label to return it, and no one has contacted me about that, but I would never buy it again and I would not recommend that anyone else buy it even though I always Brand

The lipstick is very dry and doesn't go on smoothly. And it certainly doesn't last very long at all. It gets very splotchy very fast.
Shelly-Me from Undisclosed
It's really good. Stays put. The color is a little darker than I expected but that could be the pigmentation in my lips. Overall - definitely recommend this product

Found this product way below expectation. It is the consistency of clay

I would have loved this because their colors are gorgeous. But so drying the lips I couldn't wait to get home to was it off.

I have a LOT of lipsticks and liquid lips and I got this one in butterfly kiss from a subscription box and I was so impressed! It goes on super comfortable and matte, and it lasts all day long legit. it doesn't even get cracky or crumbly and it does not gather or wear down weird. it's one of the best lip products I've ever owned and I have many. I wish this was available in more colors, I'd buy many. I wish I could submit a pic but it won't let me. it's beautiful though.

This is the best matte lipstick I have found, it stays put without drying out my lips! The color is pretty but wasn't really me so I passed it on to my daughter, it looks great on her and she loves the texture too! I will buy more in a different shade that suits me better. Highly recommend if you want a long wear comfy lipstick!

I'm not a matte lipstick wearer but something about this…price maybe…drew me in. I got warm kiss and it's a nice orangey nude. I like that you can layer this to get a darker look without it peeling itself off! I use a chapstick under and on top off which keeps the matte long wear comfortable and light on the lips. I knew if any brand could get me to wear a matte lipstick and be comfy it would be Stila!!! Will def get more colors and recommend to all my friends!
Rebekah from San Antonio
Definitely do not recommend. Gorgeous color but it's extremely drying and made my lips peel for days.

As other reviews said, its very dry. Use a lip oil prior to application. This has been working and I love the color. But today the twist mechanism wasn't working so I gave up putting the cap back on. It must have popped up on its own because now the product is in the cap of the container.
Cynthia from Undisclosed
I like the color but the lipstick was a little dry. It stayed on pretty well until I ate a meal and then it disappeared.
Jann from Undisclosed
It wasn't the color I anticipated and you were impossible to get a hold of.
Extremely frustrating.. it's now been a week a I just got a message from you guys yesterday. It's too bad I ended up ordering from another company which they sent a color.
