- "Have this in a few shades, amazing pigmentation. LOVE THIS! The only thing is you should do a lip scrub prior to application tends to make lips look a little dry....overall great buy" in 79 reviews
- "This lip stain is super nice and so cheap!! It has a very great pigmentation and a long lasting strength. I can put it on in the morning, eat, drink, and everything in between and still have a little bit of pigmentation left by the time I get home from work. (this is without any re-application)" in 42 reviews
- "It works great but I have to reapply a few times during the day." in 1 review
I use this when I want something dark and something that will last me a while. Though for people who need to improve on putting on lipstick it might not be the best since if you get it out on the outside of the lip if you don't get it quick enough it'll be hard to take off. At least in my experience. I love the dark color of it since I am always too nervous to use dark. I love how long lasting it is and when it starts to fade the color is still pretty cute. I am by no means the greatest at putting on make up but I still enjoy it and the more i learn the better I'll get at application. I suggest giving this a try if you want something that is long lasting and you won't have to constantly fuss over. Just make sure your lips aren't dry!
It looks wonderful, great for the price! You do have to reapply 3-4 times if you want it to last all day. It also makes my lips a little dry, all it needs is a good gloss to go over top. Would buy again!

I bought this today to try out simply because it was cheap. I had a tube of stuff upper lip stain from younique that was a bright red but I ran out and couldn't afford to buy more right now so I figured for $2 I could give the elf lip stain a shot as a temporary replacement till I buy more of my usual lip stain. It was ok. The color was the bright red I was expecting and I love it. The application was weird though, since it is basically a marker. It took a few seconds to set and dry, while it was still wet-ish it was sticky and messy. Once it dried it was matte and didn't smudge off. However I did end up with pink teeth from it coming off of the inside part of my lip. It seems like once it gets a bit wet it comes off. Not exactly what I was hoping for but for the price I can't complain. I love the color and may even buy a couple different shades.
It is great as a base for lip gloss. If you put one layer it looks great, 2 darker and great. It is a great alternative to lipstick if you don't want to use it or just don't have any on you at the time. I like it, my mom uses it and swears by it as a solution to any make up problem
Review for: Berry Blush, Hot Tamale more...
The colors are pretty however they do not last and smell and taste gross. They also flaked off and it didn't last longer than 15 mins honestly. When it fades it left streaks and it honestly looked like a rubbed a crayola marker on my lips.
Q & A
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.
Do they dry out quickly?
Are these lip stains matte or glossy? And how do they actually last?
Do you like this lip stain? Does it last long? Thank you.
