its a great lip stain, very pigmented and its awesomely priced but needs reapplied more often than id like due to streaking.

This product is okay. If your lips are the least bit dry it will darken in the cracks and lines and look patchy as it wears.

I was not a fan at all of these. They are like putting marker pens on your lips.. It feels weird and it's very patchy! Yuck!

This is NOT a good product. The color is not that pigmented and it doesn't last long. Don't waste your money on this product.

I like the color it leaves on my lips, but after the first application, it does not work anymore. It dried up really quick.

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😘😂😂

It sadly does not last that long. It makes my lips incredibly dry. It's not that pigmented of a color. Overall not that good

I have yet to find an e.l.f. product I don't like. The color is just enough for me. There's a nice selection and it does last
