I actually Loved this product. The colors are very lovely. They don't last very long product wise. But for $2 I definitely think it's worth buying. The Wine Color was my Favorite.

I LOVE this lip stain. It is so easy to use, the top makes it easy to line and fill. This color is fantastic, not too bright. The more layers on the darker the pigment you get. It’s definitely been my go to!

Review for: Nude Nectar more...
It was a pretty color, but it won't apply evenly on my lips. It would show up brighter on the middle of my lips to where it looked like my lips were bleeding. It is also pretty hard to take off, so I had to just cover it with lipstick. I would try it again later because the price is so cheap, but maybe that's why it has its problems.

Very nice product. I really like the color. I am a repeat user and I like it very much. Very easy application. It is very long wear. The packaging is pretty. The color label is a little small. I would definitely recommend this product.

This lip stain lasts a long time but isn’t as bright. You can barely tell it’s there. My product also dried out super quickly. It only lasted about a month and I used it 2-3 times. Not much product at all.

This product Is very good and I would definitely recommend because it actually says what it states it will do which is stain your lips, but it does come off smoothly and easily with a makeup wipe I would definitely recommend to others on a bouje budget.

It's a decent product. It comes off with water but definitely leaves behind a stain on your lips. If you don't want the bold look of a lipstick then this is probably for you.

Review for: Crimson Crush more...
I was really actually impressed with this lip stain. We bought it for my daughter to wear at competition and it stayed on all day, never smeared or got on her teeth. So then I bought one for myself. Lol. Yes We would absolutely buy it again. I do wish that they had more color options. I probably would by a lot more. Lol.

This lip stain is very good! It has a very precise applicator and quite a few colors. It is also very pigmented! The only thing I have to say about it is that becuase it is a stain your lips will feel dry, so you may need to put chapstick or something over it to make it look more natural. It is also very long wearing.

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.
