I love these lip stains, I have 3 different colors. The are inexpensive and work great. Even 1 coat is enough but layering works well too.

I like how easy it is to apply and dries quickly. Does not transfer for me and is easy to take off. I'd buy it again in a different color.

I like to use these lip stains when I'm keeping my look on the casual side and they last for a long time and the don't taste funny either.

Super affordable. Cost me about $2. It takes a few swipes to get the stain started out of the tube, but E.L.F. has a great line of colors!

I'm not sure if I really care for this. I generally like ELF products but this really dries out your lips and makes the color look cracked.

It lasts pretty long. Very kissable. I wish I had a different tip, because after a few uses it started fraying but overall a good product

I really like this lip stain but I definitely recommend to have your lips very moisturized and the results for me worked out pretty good

Love, love, love! This lip stain goes on great and stays on for so long. It doesn't fade or come of after eating. 10/10 would recommend.
