This worked great for my daughters dance recital. Stayed put and did not rub off or accidentally get on costume during change.

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 find that these dry out a little faster than I'd like but I use it over a chapstick to give a natural lip color to my lips.

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 love the lip stain. I prefer it over lipsticks and gloss. It lasts a while if you keep it moisturized. I have every color!!

This is an awesome little lip stain pen. I apply more than one coat to get the deepest colour pay off. It is a little drying.
