Pointy tip is great when trying to get a very nice line in your lip, stains super well and is pretty color, but can sometimes be blotchy.

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.

Nice color selection. Pink Petal is great for fair skinned women like me. Great value for the product. Last all day through normal wear.

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.

Really great for how cheap it is. It feels like theres nothing on your lips at all, its so light but still vibrant, and it lasts all day.

Stays on for a LONG time! Slightly drying to the lips but for me this wasn’t noticeably so. For the price, this product is a GREAT value!

Really enjoy this stain. Love the color! But it is a little tricky to use at first when applying. But over all, looks good and lasts long
