Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to have a glossy finish that leaves a "soft tint" behind while being hydrating, feather-resistant, and offers "sheer-to-medium coverage." It has a a thinner, more watery texture initially, which developed to something smoother and plusher without being too tacky. This helped the product stay in place and be bleed/feather-resistant while having longer-wear, but it was still comfortable to wear.

The shades offered medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable to higher coverage if desired. They applied evenly for the most part and didn't emphasize lip texture. The formula was moderately hydrating over time, and the short shade range performed consistently--they lasted over six hours and left a soft stain behind that lingered for another couple of hours.

Of the two colors of the Poutsicle, I own, this one is more disappointing. Like the Sangria shade, this does have some of the drawbacks of stains vs. liquid lipsticks in that it does fade more quickly and requires more frequent touch ups if you want a deep color. I found it also can be tough to get even color when applying, even if I'm careful and methodical. While not uncommon in deep, moody shades, it's nonetheless frustrating. Without careful outer liner application this color bleeds even more than the red shade, and no matter what I do bleeds at least a little. Interestingly, I also find this shade to be more drying than the Sangria. Knowing this, I don't think I would buy this shade again or, if they release additional ones, similarly dark colors.

I prefer a lip stain over liquid lipstick, since I usually find them less drying. There are, however, some downsides to stains in terms of color opacity and duration. First, stains do just that- stain. They won't remain as opaque as when first applied. This lip stain is no different, but it settles down into a satisfyingly bright color that is still very visible on me even after a few hours. Food (primarily the oils in food) do take a good deal of it off, but otherwise this does not transfer after it's dried down. My main complaint with this item is that the color bleeds into my lip lines, even if I use other methods of preventing this from happening. A concealer outer liner helps the most, but doesn't prevent it entirely. Overall, this is a good way for me to wear bright red lips without worrying about smudging and I hope they release additional colors going forward.

Very vivid color. I found it hard to have this sheer out, I did a light layer and blotted, without being ever so slightly slightly patchy (but since I like to apply glosses on top of stains this was easily fixed). No feathering or bleeding which is great as that means I don't have to bother with a lip liner. There is a very slight "ew that is a lip stain" taste when initially applying, but that quickly went away. Applying two layers of this led to a very pigmented and bold lip. This is a comfortable formula to wear.

Christine was right on about this product, definitely a solid "A" for a lip stain. The only way to become and "A+" would be to have the same texture and have a perfectly even color distribution on the lips with one coat and have absolutely zero bleedin. As it is, it ever so slightly bleeds, but since it stays put, unless someone is about to kiss you and is staring at your lips (which is possible when wearing this beautiful color with it's gloss, LOL!), then no one will see it. This is the best lip stain I've used. For those who might be purist as to lip stains, this is more of a lip stain gloss to me. But one of the things that I don't like about lip stains is that if you have uneven lip coloring or more mature lips (the latter applies, Ha!) then lip stains aren't forgiving. This one is!
