I was shocked that this color stayed on my lips for the whole day!! Usually I cannot keep lipstick on for more than an hour. Yes it is a little sticky when first applied but that goes away soon enough. It is dryer than other lipsticks, but you can just apply a bit of gloss over it. Its cons are nothing compared to having color that lasts 12 to 24 hours.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
