I actually like this product for day when I don't wanna wear makeup but just want a natural tint on my lips. It will give you a font tip but I love it.

Not there best work. Applying this product on felt as if i was applying a marker to my lips. However, it does leave a good shade for long lasting wear.

I did like this lip stain and for the price will purchase again just that it's more like a dry matte. Would have liked it to have just a bit of gloss.

Love this lip stain I can go bold or clean, love the tip easy to out line my lips. My aunt gifted me one for a birthday. I’ve been using it ever since.

I did not care for this product. And I usually really like elf cosmetics but this dries out in just a few days and it doesn't stay on very well either

I use this lipstain because I was so sick of lipstick coming off throughout the day. I love that I can put this on in the morning and it lasts all day.

If you like transfer proof lip products, this is one for you! I bought the pink one and I'm planning on trying the red one next! Definitely a favorite

It's pretty when it goes on but it comes off wayyy too easily if you lick your lips or drink/eat/kiss etc. Wish it would stay on but it just doesn't.

It sure does stain your lips, but it just don’t find that it look super great since her applicator is like a marker, it does last pretty long though.

For how cheap this was I actually used this lipstain as a base for a very long time. The color was beautiful and added a nice pink color to my lips.
