I thought this product was okay. It did give a slight tint to my lips and is good for lining lips but I would not buy it again. I've tried other lip stains that have worked way better.

Does not work at all. You might be 20 minutes out of it. Would not recommend to anyone.

I had such high hopes for this lip stain but I was super disappointed! The packaging is similar to dollar store quality markers and probably works about the same too. Very drying, went on blotchy and the colors weren’t as nice as expected.

Did not like it. Felt more like a marker then it did a lip stain. Affordable but not worth it. Would not purchase again.

Not a great product. It had a good colour range but dried out my lips the moment I applied it and left my lips in a patch mess just 1 hour after application.

Of course the best thing one can say about elf cosmetics is the price point. This particular product had nice packing but the the contents were very dry. Dry to the point of hardly any color was apparent.

I hate to say this, but this product was awful! I bought this at Walmart for my high school senior day and night. In the beginning the color was beautiful. It was strange because it was literally like a felt tip marker. After about two hours, I could see every bump and lump on my lips. Every dry patch looked darker. I do NOT recommend this.

I hated this product. It didn't apply well or evenly at all. It looked patchy and the product dried out way to fast I'm definitely not buying this product ever again!

A lot of lip stains make my lips feel dried out. How does this one compare?

Do these stay on well? I just want a little bit of color that will last for at least 8 hours.
