Not a bad brand. Works somewhat good and has a nice color. Lasts a reasonable amount of time. Very easy to apply and use. Uses it only a few times but would become a repeat user. I would but again.

Review for: Crimson Crush more...
This lip stain is perfect as a set and forget lip stain! My makeup can look unfinished without lipstick or a pop of color, and I always forget to reapply. This stain isn’t too terribly long lasting, but lasts me from 6 in the morning until lunch time and I’ll reapply. It’s cheap enough to keep one in my cosmetics drawer, one in my purse, and one in my car! Love this product!

I LOVE this product! I use this to outline my lips to add a plumper affect. It’s such a good price, with long lasting results. I was able to easily use and apply this, and I have continued to repurchase it!

I liked the color, but I thought the applicator felt weird and harsh on my lips, and felt the product was super drying, the color stayed on but the skin on my lips didn't it started cracking.

Doesn’t last long on the lips, but the product lasts a while! Expected more colour pay off but not bad for the cheap price. Wouldn’t buy anymore.
