All of these products are amazing! They last forever once applied! Very cheap and affordable and can be found at any grocery store or drug store.

It feels like you're putting Crayola washable markers on your lips. Very dissapointing. I will not be buying this again. It's a total waste of $3

I LOVE the color of this lip stain! However, it settles into every dry crack or flaky spot on my lips which makes for a not so pretty appearance.

This lip stain is great for the low price. It lasts a few hours. The only thing I do not like about this product t is it makes my lips feel dry.

Horrible!!! Doesn't stay on. You have to go over and over your lips multiple times just to show a color and it stings without being a plumper.

This lip stain rubs off easily. It does however have a nice shade. It is sheer, as you would expect. Overall I like it as a every day lip tint.

I have tried three of these colors, and I usually pair them with the Revlon Balm Stains. They aren't super easy to apply, but the color stays!
