Not a great product. It had a good colour range but dried out my lips the moment I applied it and left my lips in a patch mess just 1 hour after application.

It's a decent lip stain, especially for this price. Doesn't last long and wears off easier than I'd like but most colours are quite pigmented and work well.

Very very dry- need to pair it with a balm. Good value for the price. Nice colour. I like the marker application because it’s easy to get a clean lip line.

E.l.f is such a great brand I definitely recommend their products and the lip stains come in all these nice colours and they last a long time on your lips.

Love this lip stain! It lasts forever and the color is perfect. However it really dries out my lips and I have to keep them very moisturized afterwards.

I have this product in a deep red shade. I find that it lasts much longer than many other stains that I have tried, and it is not sticky nor does it run.

It was a bad product, just wasn’t my colour really (it was freebie when I ordered a lot one day) but overall it was very nice just again not my colour

I love the initial colour, it smells great and looks good...for about ten minutes! Wears off so fast and you have to reapply so much throughout the day

A lot of lip stains make my lips feel dried out. How does this one compare?
