It cosmetics blurred lines lipstick

Do any of you use these. I almost want to send them back. They stay on for like 10 minutes. I bought both of the trios they offer. They are so slippery like a balm and don't stay on and the colors outside the red all look the same. Any tips on how to use these? Do I need to use a liner? I am thinking of returning them.

Re: It cosmetics blurred lines lipstick

I haven't used these particular lipsticks, but in general I prefer a balm like texture with a lipstick because my lips are dry. I'd rather reapply more often than be uncomfortable. If you want longer wear, I suggest filling your lips in with a liner and applying the lipstick over the liner. That will give you more depth of color and longer wear.

 

If you don't want to bother with a liner, then, yes, return them.

I don't mind getting some liners if that will make them stay on. Anyone know of some good drugstore lipliner. I am not spending 20 dollars on one it liner.

No, these lipsticks don't stay on long--but I like a softer texture in lipstick as for some reason, my lips crack and get dry even in summer.

 

I love the "Love" color, but if you want something similar in color, try Mally's French Kiss or similar color. Her lipsticks seem to stay on longer and are a thicker formula. 

 

The liquid lipsticks from Too Face also stay on well.

Wet n Wild liners are great, also NYX. No need to spend $$$ on liners.

I really love how they feel but agree they are not long wearing.

Re: It cosmetics blurred lines lipstick

I would send them back, if it were me. I like a full colored lipstick. I also like it to be semi matte and I want it to stay on. I know regular lipsticks fade with talking, eating, etc, but I don't want to be reapplying every 10 minutes. I don't want a slick feeling lipstick. I do agree that applying them over a lip liner may help.

Have you tried Katy Kat Matte lipsticks (by CoverGirl)?  They are really good and inexpensive, and sound like your kind of lipstick.  I got "Catoure"  and I really like it!

Re: It cosmetics blurred lines lipstick

I am going to see if I can find my receipts and packaging I think and send back. I can get so many more lipsticks with buy one get half off. Do I need my receipts or are the return labels ok to use.
