Elf products are usually wonderful! I love them! This lip stain is very cute and not expensive at all. However, this lip stain fades quite quickly!

These stains last soooo long and are easy to use because they're just like a marker, but they dry out and smell weird after having them like a year

This stain did not apply evenly and did not last at all. I've tried multiple colors to see if it varied depending on pigment but I hated them all.

Love the stain I get and the long lasting of it. Not a fan of the smell of them. I might have just gotten a bad one. But over all a great product.

This is a nice color, but when I used but, it looks so cheap, and the color did not look equally distributed my lips. I would not buy this again.

I thought it did a great job at keeping the coclor on my lips throughout the day. Really easy to apply, and doesn't come off unless you scrub it.

I LOVE the color of this lip stain! However, it settles into every dry crack or flaky spot on my lips which makes for a not so pretty appearance.

All of these products are amazing! They last forever once applied! Very cheap and affordable and can be found at any grocery store or drug store.

For long lasting color you can't go wrong with e.l.f. lipstain. I wear mine nearly every day. It's dry feeling so I usually top it with lipgloss.
