I don't really like this. The stain doesn't come on too harsh, but it doesn't last long. Main reason for me why I didn't like it.

I bought this years ago. I remember not being a fan of it. It didn't apply evenly and was pretty streaky. It did stay on though.

I didn’t like this at all it didn’t stay on long at all and it rubbed off easy! The formula was awful but it smelled really good.

I love this stain. The color is beautiful and it stays on all day. No color transfer on anything. Feels like you have nothing on.

This isn't the best lip stain ever but it's still pretty good! It is a little hard to blend of you are going for a gradiant lip!

Doe sots. He feels like a marker it works doesn't last long but leaves a decent color for a everyday lip stain to carry in purse

It doesn't last as long as some lipstains, but you can't beat the price. In general, I love this lipstain. The color is vibrant.
