It’s like a marker so it’s kind of weird and it dries quickly and doesn’t smell or taste very good but the color is nice

This product was really drying. It literally feel like i put a dried up marker against my lips. The product did not last.

Gives nice color and goes on nicely. Wish the color lasted longer. It was good for a few hours but then have to reapply.

It lasted a few hours but my lips ended up dry and flaky half way through the day. Loved the color and long wear though.

I really don't like this because it doesn't come off as well as some of the other lip sticks I have that are waterproof.

Did not like it. Felt more like a marker then it did a lip stain. Affordable but not worth it. Would not purchase again.

It doesn't really go on too easy. It takes some effort and you have to be sure to add some gloss over it to make the look

I was excited to try this because I love lip stains. However, it barely came out on my lips and I got no color out of it.

I generally like ELF products, but this one came up a little short for me. it's not very pigmented and just doesn't last.
