Advantages: lasts longer than other lip products
Disadvantages: a bit expensive, colour doesn't suit every one's taste
I bought this a long time ago and use it regularly and still didn't get halfway through it. I guess it makes it good value for money even if it was a bit expensive to buy.
It comes in a nail polish like bottle and the colour is exactly what you see in the picture. The liquid inside is a very thin and watery and this is probably way it lasts so long since you only use a few drops every time.
It is quite secure and doesn't spill but if you forget to fasten it tightly you might have a little disaster in your bag which happened to me once and it takes a while to get it off things. However, this kind of proves that it does work! I don't find the brush applicator very hygienic as you dip it back in after using it. It might have been better if it was designed in a different way.
I only use it on my lips and it does take a while to get it right as it doesn't easily give even coverage and sometimes you end up looking like you just had a red lollipop. I usually cover it with gloss as I only want some colour to be there in case the gloss disappears through the day. I am not sure how long the tint lasts but it's usually gone by the end of the day. It definitely lasts longer than gloss though. I never tried it on my cheeks which I think I might give a go after reading some of the other reviews.
I like the idea and would probably try out other similar products but I wouldn't buy this again as I mainly wanted it for lips and from my experience it's nothing too special.
Summary: A cool idea in theory but not so good in practise wouldn't buy again
