Easy to apply, very reasonable cost and great color! Does leave lips feeling a little dry and wears relatively fast with food or drink

It was okay for the price but it stains lips unevenly and had a bit of a funky color I think the application tip could have been better

I like this e.l.f. lip stain very much. I got a pretty red stain that lasted all day. My only complaint is that the pen dried out fast.

Not the best of their products. It crusts and peels and shrinks my lips you can see cracks and you really have to build up the color

the shade matches my skin tone perfectly and it’s just like a marker which makes it so much easier to trace to your unique lip shape.
