So, the next day I went back to the drugstore and bought the product, tried in on my lips the very same day, and was in awe. The Lips2Last has colour in on end and clear gloss in the other. You put on colour first with a doe foot applicator and let it dry for one minute. If you don't mind the dry feeling, you could leave your lips like this and use it as a matte lipstick. If you want gloss and moisture, add the gloss on top with its own doe-foot applicator. After that you can do whatever you like and your lips will stay looking great!

I eventually bought four different shades, since I felt 5 euros for this kind of miracle product is a steal! So far I've been wearing two, and both are incredibly opaque, don't stain, don't smudge, don't need lip liner and look just fantastic the whole day. Just have a look:
|This is 46T (I have no idea what the letters mean), a dark pink just applied with gloss.|
|This is the same shade after 9-ish hours of working and shopping, including a sushi lunch. I have only applied lip balm on top, I didn't even have the Lips2Last tube with me.|
|It does wear off a bit in the center of the lips, but very little and there's no bleeding.|
+ Very long lasting, I've gotten as much as twelve hours of wear with no touch-ups.
+ You can use regular lip balm on top
+ 5 euro price tag seems very low for a product performing this well
+ Easy to remove with an oil-based make-up remover (mostly anything meant for waterproof make-up)
- Manhattan seems to be available only in Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Austria
- The colour selection isn't great, most of the shades lean to brown and there are no plum-purples that I love
- Dries out your lips a bit, remember to use lip scrub and put on lip balm for the night after using Lips2Last
I'm very pleased with this product. It does what it promises, and that is to last incredibly long. I don't like lip products that you need to constantly touch up, they are too fussy, but this is a dream come true! Lip stains are awesome, but they are not opaque, but the Lips2Last is totally opaque and lasts at least as long as most stains. I'm planning to do a little experiment and try if I could change the shade with powder pigment. If I could make a black version, or a very dark one, I'd be in heaven!
