These are horrible! They smell weird after a few days and apply on splotchy. Plus they don't last long on the lips.

This lip stain is good in theory, but I found the application to be patchy, and the stain itself tends to dry out.

The color was nice, not too bright but not too subtle either. Layering helped alot! For the price, I bought a few!

Not the best pigment, doesn't last that, long, but I love elf products so much I can't give it lower than a three.

Very buildable and long lasting. Doesn't come off easily and when it does, comes off evenly. It is a little drying.

Dried my lips and settled into the lines. Would not recommend to anybody except for if you mixed it in with a balm
