I like this lip stain however, it easily wipes away if at the beach, pool, or just simply just if you drink lots of water. It wears off during the day however it the colors are amazing. I love berry blush and wear it a lot if I'm taking pictures and just playing with my ever growing makeup collection. I like this product and would recommend

This product works great! It gives my lips a a natural subtle look. The only problem is that it dries my lips out so I recommend chapstick before use. It kind of feels like a marker on my lips but it feels fine.

Review for: Berry Blush more...
This is super pigmented so it definitely packs a punch when it comes to color. It was also pretty long lasting too- I did not have to reapply at all throughout the day. I think it’s a bit intense for me but definitely has great color payoff.

Great product but design could be better. I don't feel it disperses enough product when I'm applying to my top lip so o have to hold it at a weird angle. I do love the coverage and lasting power though.

It’s not that I don’t recommend this product. I just personally do not like how it feels and it doesn’t last long. It dries out my lips which was frustrating and disappointing. I will not buy this again.

This stain is as good as any more expensive drugstore lip stain that I have tied for a fraction of the price. Although its a bit watery on application it dries quickly for a long lasting stained effect.

The color stays very nice and is very bold. This does dry out your lips though so I definitely recommend going over it with a clear lip balm every once in a while. The tip is fine so it is nice for precision.

This lipstain is really nice. If you want a natural look, I would recommend this. Once you put this on your lips you feel lik nothing and it last pretty long even if you're eating. The color will not stain onto the cup if you drink water.

Love how long these stay on. Very classy, easy to draw on the lips. Reasonably priced. I have two different colors and continue to get more and continue using. I highly recommend to give your kids clean sharp lines with this Lip stain

Elf lip stain is good! I love the color selections and it feels good on. It is also pleasant smelling. It doesn't last as long as i hoped, but the compact size makes it easy to take with you on the go.
