  • "This lip stain is super nice and so cheap!! It has a very great pigmentation and a long lasting strength.

I give this three stars because it works but at the same time it doesn't. I love the colors and all but the color doesn't last.

It burned my lips whenever I used it. So I just use it to outline my lips. I don't cover my whole lips. I hardly use it anymore

I didn't like the lip stain at all. Dull colors. Hard to get off. I will never use again but I guess you get what you pay for.

Affordable, but doesn't seem to last as long as other drugstore lip stains that I've used. The color range is also very small.

It works okay sometimes. But when I use it it seems to burn my lips. So I just outline my lips with it. Then put on lip stick.

It goes on a deep color and lasts a good but as long as your lips are not chapped and/or dry. It will appear blotchy otherwise.

The tip was a little difficult for me to use but the red color I got left a nice pink color on my lips without being blotchy.

I'm very fond of this stain-it looks quite natural, is very lasting, and it doesn't smudge or mark up my boyfriend's face😘😂😂

A lot of lip stains make my lips feel dried out. How does this one compare?

Do these stay on well? I just want a little bit of color that will last for at least 8 hours.
