No way. Dry my lips out big time and product kept drying up. Maybe the formula changed but this would be a no from me.
One of the best lip stain I ever tried! Amazing pigmentation, long lasting and cheap price! I recomend this product!

I hated this product. Did nothing for me. Didn't even show up on my lips. I would not recommend this product at all.

I can't believe how much I LOVE this lip stain. It starts out sheer but you can build the coverage. I'm buying more!

Probably my favorite lip stain. Goes on easy and can be layered for a more intense look, matches lip tone super well.
