These lip stains are some of my favorite! They're very nice when you want to have color to your lips but don't want the hassle of reapplying lipstick multiple times throughout the day. They're a little difficult to apply with the applicator and are about drying but the color is very nice and they are very portable. Love them! e.l.f. Cosmetics Essential Lip Stain

I think this does he job of giving you a stain however it’s definitely not as noticeable. I do have dark skin but the stain doesn’t last as long. Either way you get what you pay for and it does the job according to it.

I actually found this product at the Dollar Tree which made me very excited! I loved the color and it lasted log! It didn’t dry my lips out and was very comfortable to wear. I’m really glad I have this a shot. Also very cute with a gloss over it or by its self.

This is actually one of my favorite lip products! I prefer it over a liquid lipstick any day. I own two shades and they both appear darker than the tube. The color lasts a long time and doesn't dry the lips or flake off. It wears off really nice and evenly. I've had one of them for over a year and it hasn't dried out yet. For such a cheap product, you can't go wrong.

I LOVE this product! As a singer I’ve had my fair share of stage kisses, and the worst thing is trying to find a lip product that won’t end up all over your stage partner. I bought this lip stain for a show last May, and this product made it through several stage kisses, didn’t budge, and removed easily with a makeup wipe! Definitely recommend!

Omigod. I love this lip stain. I can't stand lipsticks because of how much they transfer, and this is the perfect solution. The pigmentation is really, really good. It applies really well, and although it is a bit drying, because it is a lip stain you can just throw on some chapstick and it won't change the color. Such a good deal for the money.

I really love marker lip stains because I can use them to line my lips. Yet, this stain was sub-par. This stain dries out very quickly, and also has a strange smell. It works okay for the price. I wouldn't recommend if you're looking for everyday wear though.

I hate to say this, but this product was awful! I bought this at Walmart for my high school senior day and night. In the beginning the color was beautiful. It was strange because it was literally like a felt tip marker. After about two hours, I could see every bump and lump on my lips. Every dry patch looked darker. I do NOT recommend this.

I like this product for when I am going out and don't feel like reapplying because it stays on really well. The felt tip makes it easy to put on but I did notice it dries my lips out after extended use. the product soaks in heavy at first but eventually in having to shake it and press it on my hand to get the product out to finish the job.

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

Do these stay on well? I just want a little bit of color that will last for at least 8 hours.
