Rated 4.36 out of 5 stars
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 :)
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 had no idea lipstick came in a stain! I heard this from my stylist so went to check it out. This color, on me, was way too bright and bold although I have been able to tone it down by using some lip balm on a Q-Tip, wiping some off and then applying a darker lip balm. It works fine since I can't return the product and didn't want to throw it away. For someone who may have medium or deep skin tone this color may work better. The product itself is great and does stay on.

As far as a cheap matte lipstick goes, these are great but they do have some small issues. The lipstick will stay fairly well all day once it dries but it does tend to pill up and leave little clumps on your lips and will fade around the edges. It's not terrible but it definitely has some room for improvement. If you have the money to splurge on something a but more expensive, I would. If you're on a budget however, these can definitely be worn well all day, you just have to work around some of the kinks.

I've bought numerous colors of this product….the color is lacking in this one
Kay from Maryville Tennessee
Pros: Affordable, Stays very well, Pigmented, smells very good(froot loops)
Cons: Drying/Creases, stays a bit too well, doesnt blend well (pigment moves to much)
I little goes an extremly long way for this product. I will use it but i wouldn't repurchase.

If you're looking for a lipstick to stay on this is perfect. However, no matter how little or much I applied it remained sticky. Did not feel comfortable on my lips.
from New York
This was a last minute find but ended up one of the longest lasting liquid lips I've ever tried. I got the black shade and it's very opaque and lasted the entire night without budging. It wasn't matte to me but still great. It only came off with an oil based makeup remover.
Crow from Folsom, CA
No matter how much or how little I applied of the black lipstick it never became matte and was sticky. It feels very uncomfortable on the lips. So difficult to take off, you have to really scrub it to get it to come off. The applicator isn't the worst but it does take some getting used to.
Nyxie from Columbus, Indiana
My location was out of the NYX Lingerie XXX in this color, and an employee recommended this one – oh my god!! It's an almost perfect dupe! I owe her MY LIFE lol it comes in a bunch of cute colors. I bought two!
It says SuperStay and ya'll, it ain't kiddin'! Over an eight hour work day, I only had to reapply it ONCE (mainly because I talk a lot AND I was using a straw lol). The only places it rubbed off completely before I reapplied it was the inside corners of my lips.
The texture is sooo smooth, too. It mattes fairly quickly, and it looks phenomenal! The color stays and doesn't lighten at all! I can't recommend it enough it if you're looking for a black matte liquid lipstick to rival NYX Lingerie!

I have bought many brands of liquid lipsticks over the years and this one has oustlasted them all. I never had to reapply it all day and ate several times. It lasted better than Stila and that has always been the best one that i have tried. Wish i had bought yhis brand sooner and saved myself some money!
L from missouri
I'm always very careful with most things including makeup but the spoolie completely popped off and is now stuck in the tube after only 2 uses of this lipstick. I love the color, formula, and everything else about this product but I won't be buying this again because it's practically unusable with the spoolie broken and stuck in the container.

No smudge or wear. You can eat and drink a 10/10.
BeckyStormyLynn from St. Paul, MN
I put this on around 9am and, having never reapplied, at 8:30 pm it's still visible. It was a bit tacky as it dried at first, but nothing that made me hate it. As soon as it dried there was no transfer.
ADiaz from Seattle
I still have enough of it left at the end of the day without reapplying, BUT it transfers to surfaces, making it wear off faster.
Jan from Atlanta Georgia
First time trying and eager to try other colors, the product actually performs well and I've received lots of compliments.
Martelle from Richland, WA
Very disappointed, I use Maybelline Superstay 24hr Duel Ended lipstick and it's fantastic. This one is very sticky and does not dry completely. The color does last but it's not nice to wear.
Lyss from Orange County
I own six of these and will be buying more. Best no smudge lip color I've had yet. Doesn't go anywhere. And I don't need a lip liner. To remove, definitely recommend using a make up wet wipe. I prefer Aveeno. Otherwise the color stays for a long time after washing your face.
Pat from Mi
Color is beautiful and stays on
Karrie from Utah
I have tried countless lip products and this one outshines them all. I'm a performer and need products that last through anything. This stuff is the GOAT. It doesn't budge after multiple hours of performing, I can eat without having to re-apply and never worry about it smudging. Plus finally a black that it perfect! I really hope they come out with more fun shades but I'll be sticking with these from now on.
jess from Sterling VA
I own ~25 of these. I keep trying other brands that are more expensive (incl kvd), hoping to get a slightly less sticky feel - but they don't hold up ALL DAY like maybelline does. Getting it off requires Micellar Water and a microfibre. 4.5 stars.
Vianey from Lake Villa, Illinois
No need to reapply after eating a meal. Lasts really long and doesn't dry out my lips.
Make Up Lover from Des Moines, IA
Let me tell you, this lipstick was put through multiple tests, and it did not fail. It stayed on through anything and everything.
Pg from Charlotte
Just buy it, it is the best lipstick I ever had. Smudge proof, stays all day long, no stains and much more. I love the pioneer color which is mix of deep red and a tint of pink (wine red). Will surely buy other colours soon from ulta. Thanks Maybelline ❤️
ad229 from St. Louis Mo
Would give 0 stars if I could. Horrifyingly sticky and literally the ugliest color. Highlighted every line on my lips and never dried, and eas almost impossible to take off. Will be returning.
Fredbaby from Porter Ranch, Ca.
It is an overall decent product. I have used them for yesrs. Pros: Long lasting with an array of beautifully pigmented colors to choose from. Cons: EXTREMELY and irksomely sticky! My lips always feel like I applied a glue stick; doesn't completely dry down, transferable, it accentuates the lines in my lips with a dry and cakey aesthetic that I find personally appealing.
Vic from Houston
trying to replace my old love the kvd matte liquid lipsticks and failing, cant really speak for the lipsticks since the whole point of the product is being matte and they are not!
