Great color, and long-lasting, but there are some unhealthy ingredients, so I wouldn't wear it too much.

It’s a very natural lip stain and it does not smudge. I recommend putting it on with a lip balm on top

I didn’t like it , it feels like you are drawing on your lips with a marker and it doesn’t last long .

So good. This leaves a stain on your lip of read and almost makes your lips look hydrated and natural.

I got one of these from a friend. Not really what I expected. Seems to last a long time, not my color.
