It leaves my lips dry due to the alcohol in it but it does stay on most of the day I would recommend if you wanted temporary lip stain.

It’s a great color that matches my complexion. It does stain the lips, but isn’t long lasting. Great price, but the product is ok...

LOVE this shade with a shiny gloss on top. Although it shows every spot you might've missed or is dry I love it and how long it lasts

This is one of my favorite alternatives to lipstick or gloss. It stays put and looks amazing for hours. Great buy for $2 at walmart.

They definitely stain your lips but the color of the tube is not the color that goes on your lips. They work but I wouldn't recommend

The pink wasn't dark enough and dried out quick, it seemed like a mat finish. I also have the red stain, purchased at a dollar store

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
