Love their lip stain! I usually put lip balm or Chapstick over it and it's good for the day. Easy removal too.

This isn't a long lasting product. It is very nice for the price though. It is what I expected from this brand.

This is okay. I feel like it dries out super fast. And the application isn't as seamless as one would think.

Terrible. Hard to apply evenly. Easily washes off with water or spit. Dries out lips terribly. Awful product

This lip stain is great in darker colors. The lighter colors don’t seem to have that much effect on my lips.
