Works very well. Can leave it matte or add gloss on top for a shiny look. Stays on through eating and drinking. There are many colors to choose from.

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.

This is one of the best lip stains I have tried. It lasts a lot longer than some of the more expensive brands that I have tried and its much cheaper.

This is a pretty color lip stain but it settles into every line and crack of your lips and dries them out. They look messy after only about an hour.

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.

The applicator is hard at for, but once I pressed down firmly it's been easy to apply. Stays in for hours at a time. It reminds me of a marker lol
