This dark color is perfect for red kissable lips that I always want. It works fast and lasts forever. Seriously, what more could I want from a lip stain?

This lip stain is ok. Kind of drying so I have to use my lip balm afterwards. Doesn't have to best texture and hard to apply. I purchased this at target.

Review for: Crimson Crush, Berry Blush more...
I love these!!! Easy to use, stays and lasts for a while, I can use a little chapstick hours later and it just re-west the color to make it fresh again!

The color was nice and full, but the application was too dry and came out very spotty. Not even lip balm over the top would help even out the spottiness.

I like these for putting under a lipstick to add the extra pigment. Or for that blurred grungy look. They bleed a little bit but I like that about them.

Color payoff is nice, but the stain looks better under a gloss or balm. Too dry on its own, unless you use an oil on your lips beforehand. Easy to apply.

These feels great on the lips and the color lasts a long time! You might have to reapply after eating or drinking but not always Totally worth the price

This stuff had great pigmentation and is very easy to apply since its in market form. The only huge problems are it's very drying and can become patchy.
