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.

I LOVE this stuff. It really does its job by not coming off easily. Easy to use as a lip liner as well, can be worn alone or with gloss.
