MAC stays true to their word: these lipcolors stay on for a really, really, really long time
. Personally, I don't like them because it takes such a long time for them to wash off (I even tried scrubbing it off in the shower), and it made my lips really raw afterward. They're great if you don't like going into the washroom to re-apply every so often, because for the most part, the color stays put.
Colorwise, I like "Durashell" (pink with flecks of gold) and "Lasting Lust" (bright red).
i just bought my first pro longwear lip color in shade 'unchanging' after seeing it on one of the brides on their website and i have to admit i was really pleased with it, it lasts very long but as ikebana has said it can take a while to get off and can leave lips dry. i tried it on bare lips as the assistant at the counter said it lasts longer, but i found it drying my lips more, so she advised me to condition my lips the night before (exfoliated gently then applied lipbalm generously). the next day my lips were not so drying and didnt produce any flakiness. its fabulous & great to wear on special occassions, events etc but i could'nt wear it everyday, it costs tooooo much for that!!!

Also, you really have to wait at LEAST 2 minutes before applying the gloss over the lip color. I personally prefer the texture of the new lustre longwears -- much more lightweight. If I want to wear a dark lip color, longwear is the best for me (because otherwise I'll be a mess in about an hour, haha!)
