These suck. Dont waist your dollar or 3$. I forget how much this one was but it didnt do anything for me. The application is like a marker tip. So your literally coloring your lips with a marker. Awful.

It’s stuff is really drying and really patch for a stain. I feel like I’m rubbing a permanent marker all over my lips. But if yes the job done and really stains your lips. The patchiness kinda goes away if you put a gloss on top.

This looks beautiful the first few time you use it, but the tip dries out sooo fast. It's also just a drying product in general, so you'd definitely need to wear a lip gloss or lip balm over top.

It’s a great lip stain and I use it along with a gloss. It’s extremely affordable and met my expectations well. Just remember to always exfoliate your lips before putting on a lip stain. I’d buy all the colors honestly if I had the time.

I️ love the color of this stain! I️ love that the tip of the lip stain marker is pointed so that you are able to get every corner of your lip. I️t has always lasted me most of the day. And it doesn’t smudge. Would recommend

I hate this so much. Just sits in lines and dry areas. Really looks awful. The concept it cool, it was interesting to draw on my lips with what felt like a marker. But really not a fan,especially in Minnesota winters.

Review for: Crimson Crush, Berry Blush more...
I tried both colors out and was hoping they’d work as well as some of the other products I’ve purchased from E.L.F. in the past. I was very disappointed when the color barely showed and what did show didn’t last. Will not purchase again.

I have two of these ELF lip stains, a red and berry color. They are cute to wear as an allover stain... but not as the trendy lip stain I am trying to go for... like this.... e.l.f. Lip Stain,

The applicator on this is a little weird. It looks like a marker and feels weird to apply. I sometimes struggle to get consistent coverage. I most often wear this under lipstick - not alone.

Ive never ever liked lip stains. I think they look gross and theyre a fail. But i did try this one and it was a total mess. It stained my skin and everything ... its not all the hype people talk about.

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