Very pigmented, goes on nicely. You can even layer it for a deeper hue. It really does stay on all day which is great for foodies like me lol

Super affordable. Cost me about $2. It takes a few swipes to get the stain started out of the tube, but E.L.F. has a great line of colors!

I love these lip stains, I have 3 different colors. The are inexpensive and work great. Even 1 coat is enough but layering works well too.

Am in love with elf’s lip stain markers. Tip provides an on point application. Amazing color, great on its own or paired with a lip gloss.

I love the color. It is easy to apply. It doesnt have a taste and it dries down fast. But it only lasted about 3 hours each time I wore it.

Applies very inconsistently. I’ve bought this product a few times in hope of different results to no avail. Makes my lips appear splotchy.
