I was excited to try this based on reviews I had read and I'm always on a mission for transfer proof lips. After reading about this product and previous reviewers experience I was fairly prepared. The product DOES separate and needs to be shaken/mixed before every use, which is mentioned. It's a thin gel/creme texture and I find it applies best with a very small amount on a finger, GENTLY pat on top of and PAST the lip line or else only the middle of your lip will be covered. Then reapply a small amount to finger and do the same for the top lip.
Works wonderfully for true lipstick!!!! I was skeptical and am happy to say it went beyond my expectations, I'll be ordering more when it is back in stock and several fellow artists want some as well now.
Some tips from what I've found, it doesn't seem to apply well over long wear liquid lipsticks. Also I recommend gently blotting lips with a tissue before applying the top coat in order to prevent excess lipstick from moving with your fingers as you apply. The texture is silky and has a silicone feel to it and takes several minutes to dry and set so it's best to not drink or disturb the lips until it has fully dried, then you have nearly invincible lips! Perfect for brides or just every day wear, I am very pleased, this is a new holy grail product for me.
