Nice color, darker than expected at first, but nice once patted off, very good for the price, standard packaging, already have a backup, very easy to use, lasts all day, nice under other lighter lipsticks to darken them

Stains the lips great and stays on for about three hours. Works perfectly for the amount you pay for. The pink is my favorite.

Putting on the lip stain a strange experience because i had never used a lip stain before this one. This lip stain went on very easily and looked really pretty. This lip stain gave my lips a sort of natural red color.

At first I loved this lip stain but I did run into a few issues. If you have dry lips, this will make them look crusty and settle into fine lines. Secondly, It will dry out after opening. When using this I recommend using a very hydrating lip balm beforehand!

This lip stain has a really easy application and lasts A VERY LONG TIME. The colour shows up really nicely and bold, however this product is a tad bit drying to the lips so I would advise that you MOISTURIZE YOUR LIPS really well and then apply the product for maximum results.

Love this product! This is what I use everyday. It’s such a good price for a decent product. It doesn’t dry out your lips or look like anything cakey is on, it looks natural. It’s lasts for a pretty long time too. Would recommend.

Overall great color! I like the feel of it but it dries down very quick. Very nice and velvety smooth.

This was my go to lip stain for the longest time! It's a very light, sheer application that is buildable. Lasts all day and doesn't dry out your lips. Highly recommended. Also looks great over top lipsticks!
