I was hesitant based on the mixed reviews, but I'm so glad I purchased this!!! My lipstick has lasted all day as opposed to five minutes, and the tinted Chapstick I put on halfway through the day even lasted longer too. My lips felt a litte bit drier than usual, but that might just be the Texas summer working against me. Don't let the mixed reviews fool you - 6 hours, two straws, three water bottles, lunch, a beer and kisses proves this stuff works!!
